Using AA miles for Israel
« on: November 17, 2014, 10:16:17 PM »
Now that ElAl is no longer an option using AA miles, what's the best way to use AA miles to get to Israel (preferably business class)

Man alive. I know I've been on the forums for some time, but if I want to understand all these answers I'll need a Dansdeals dictionary.

It sounds like I would not be able to go direct with AA miles like I used to with ElAl.

Nope. Most direct would be with US Air via PHL
