Best way to book LH F TLV-FRA-JFK (first leg is J). Does making two separate itineraries make it cheaper (because the first leg is actually J anyway)?

75k SQ + YQ

this can go a few ways.. If you can find a cheap way to FRA (look for roundtrips (as its cheaper than one ways) & dont/or do take the return) then its possibly worth booking via AC for 62,500 + YQ.
If you cant find a cheap way to FRA then just book via LH directly & make sure your address the country says Israel & it should be 85,000 + yq

And then no Porsche upon arriving in FRA.

Wow, that's a great redemption. Crazy that it's less than Europe to North America.

Is it safe to hold with them and then purchase with SQ? (will it go back into inventory?)
Can it be held with sq?
(I know they hold for ua)
+1 on this question (SQ will only hold if you have the miles in the account, though, right?)

Meaning with SQ themselves? *A redemption in F is 80k (Europe) vs. 75k (Middle East).
