Saw it here http://m.ynet.co.il/Articles/4921866
Article seems to just mention an ongoing sale. Am I missing something?
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

Ethiopian announced TLV-Thailand
That would be big news. Direct Star Alliance flights TLV-Far East!
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I guess it sounded too good to be true. Come to think about it, it would be an extremely unlikely route.

Would be nice if they would work on updating their current schedules to not require a 10+ hour layover between TLV-BKK (and vice versa).

Would also be nice if aireuropa would adjust their TLV schedule to be able to connect to and from flights to/from US. It could become a decent widebody connection to TLV.

Let's have a thread where we make up unlikely 5th freedom routes and then post the next day that we were kidding. I'll start.

Hey, guys! Did you hear about HPN-SIN on QF in an A380?

How about adding to the Wiki airports that are least likely to get 5th Freedom flights, so people can avoid mistakes. Start the list with the following four:

TLV
HPN
CLE
PIT

MR > CX  is 50k RT or 30k OW on CX.
MR > NH is 55k RT on PR (can't book NH partners as OW).
