General question. Booking a one way from phl/iad/jfk to TLV for mid October. Just as a benchmark,  what is a reasonable price? 1 stop is ok

In the $350-$500 range with a Russian/Ukranian/Azerbaijan airline, (which includes two free bags) :D

Thank. Does aeroflot count as a one of those aforementioned airlines? Or is that a normal one

It's the best one of the bunch, but you can sometimes find in that price range.

+1 it's generally the most expensive of the four, though it can also be found in the $500 range. Also, my friends and I had great experiences with Transaero.

Round trip:JFK-SYD
Non-stop/Maximum stops/Any: just the one stop required.
From: JFK/Newark
To: SYD

Return airports: JFK/Newark
Return dates: Oct 20 through 27
Class: Coach
Seats: 5 ( or 4 if united)
Alliance/Airline: united/ quantas
Cheapest ticket found; $1311 united.

I unfortunately don't have mileage this time around. Any ideas of how to cut that cost? Need 5 tickets.(have united mileage for 1 so make that 4 if it's via united.)
Is it realistic to find cheaper? That's way over my budget..

I've been trying unsuccessfully to book a roundtrip flight from LHR to TLV leaving on Dec 24 and returning on Jan 3. I'm seeing this on ITA Matrix but cannot find it on any booking site for less than $832. Does anyone have any ideas how I can book these flights at this rate? Thanks for any help!
