what does first class lhr-tlv on BA mean
Exactly that! They fly 4 cabin planes on that route once or twice a day.

Anyone know what the MAD-TLV flight is in J? I hear they have one plane with blocked middle and one with real J recliners.

A319 has "real" business class. (Actual recliner seat similar to domestic F, as opposed to the A320 and most other European carriers which is only a blocked middle seat)
Im pretty sure most, if not all their flights between MAD and TLV are sing the A319.

If the aircraft type is A319 then it will be the "real" J.

Looking to book ex-TLV in a few weeks. Options with UA miles in Business Saver are LX, LH, or OS each with a stopover in their respective hub.

What would you do?

Just because of the Wide-Body aircraft for the TLV-EU segment I would go with LX. I personally prefer OS over LX for the long haul though.

I'm going right after Shavuos and chose OS JFK>TLV and LX TLV>JFK due to stopover times.

BTW if Wi-Fi is important not all of those have.

Another option is to go TLV-BRU and then switch to UA for the transatlantic. Is Polaris much better than those other Js I mentioned?

Depends on the plane.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I guess there's a MS post I was supposed to read that explains all that?
