Anyone have experience with short stopovers in ZRH or MUC regarding whether 1 hr or 1:15 is really enough time for me and my luggage to make the next flight, and how the flights are comfort wise EWR-ZRH or MUC, and ZRH/MUC to TLV? Thanks!
definitely doable.
If you fly with LX through ZRH you get a bigger plane.

The TLV-BRU isn't so bad but the return in expensive
Can't find anything decently priced for any AM flights

Try AC.  Call your travel agent and ask if they can get her an open return.  Currently can get from Boston on 8/21 for $1100.  Problem is that the flight arrives 10am might not work for you.

Google flights and ITA matrix are showing below itinerary for $3808 but aa.com is not booking it. Alternatively, I see $4108 on Lufthansa, but there is a 6.5 hour layover on the way back (or 2.75 hours which bumps the price up to $4417).
