What's the best CPT-LAX, preferable on either QR J 787, A350 or EY F? If QR J isn't available, what's the cheapest J or F from CPT-LAX?

Don't forget you could pay cash like $3k with EK F  direct from ek.com  also QR J Cash is like $1600ish.

Duh. I assumed miles was understood unless it was a super cheap flight. While $3k might be cheap by comparison, it's not the same as a cheap flight.

NYC-SJC ? I do not have any UA miles available, so that is not an option.

Not sure who would be most cooperative for this itinerary, looking to book TLV-LAX-NYC-TLV in J. need about 5 days in LAX and 2-3 days in NYC. Is there anyway to do it as 2 legs?

ITA isn't reliable.
