If he wants F it would 40k with CX on CX and 20k SQ on AC for J.
Y would be 12.5k BA on CX or 12.5k AC or SQ on AC.

Correct. AA has always been the cheapest way, but OP was asking about MR.

I'm not sure that makes sense. You're saying LH F and SQ on the same route LAX-TLV? How can that be done?  ???

Oh, so then that also clarifies Chapshnell's question.

I believe he was asking you what airline are you looking for - the cheapest one or the best quality one. But, in reality, you already chose an airline - LH F - and were only asking what's the cheapest way to book them. I don't know, but now that your question is clarified, maybe someone here knows the answer.

Read my post. He was referring to using SQ to book LH F.
