It's chanukah, and almost all flights are connecting flights through Europe.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Is it likely that prices will go down for one way ticket?

Unlikely. Your options in that price range are Turkish, air Serbia, Azerbaijan, or Ukraine.
If you don't mind a 10 hour layover (lots of Jewish interest things to see in WAW), you can do LOT for $463.

Looking to do MKE (or ORD) to TLV on 1/1/
Returning on 1/8 to BNA (as long as I get there by 1/9 @ noon).

Economy Class

I can do FlyingBlue for ORD - TLV for 18,750 +$90.40 but the return I could use some help with.

Note changed dates.
If I do the DDMS deal on La Compagnie ($997), and take LY CDG-TLV ($1440), that comes out to $2440. I wouldn't do it for that price, since I can get LY direct for about 3k.
However, maybe there's a cheaper J ticket on a different airline for CDG-TLV, then it might be worth it. Also, I have some Avios and AA miles and UR points which I could use for that segment. Any thoughts? (I know this is the paid ticket edition, but I'm talking about a hybrid. ;))
Thanks!

So we're back to plan A: Nonstop EWR-TLV on LY for about 3k  Unless someone has a better idea. A stopover is ok, but only for an hour or two (maybe three). More than that is not worth it. Thanks!

62 inches of pitch- not exactly a great J experience

Once you're doing that, I would do UA nonstop.

I have a $200 LY voucher (from the Privilege fiasco).

That would probably be worth it. Where did you see 2800? I didn't see that low.

Why do you prefer UA over LY (assuming price is the same)?
