You can transfer AMEX Or Citi points to Qantas at a 1:1 ratio, Barclays points at a 1.4:1 ratio, Capital One points at a 2:1.5 ratio, or Marriott points to Qantas at a 60K:25K ratio.

Qantas doesn’t charge fuel surcharges for El Al flights.

QF runs regular transfer bonus promos. Be sure to transfer 500 points into your account and opt in for emails to get targeted.

Waited 1.5 hours and rebooked for 13k points and $20 USD was afraid to cancel because points come in after 10 business days flights were getting booked
Points come in within an hour

He probably tried 'use Money', Not 'use points'. When doing that TLV doesn't even come up as an option.
I booked today 3 x 2 El Al Tickets with QF and I saw full availability

No. I searched NYC to TLV.
I also saw it earlier today, but if you search now, you won't see any Elal direct flights showing up.

If you do, please let me know.
