would booking TLV-SFO be the same price as TLV-SFO-LAX using QF?

Dunno if anyone else noticed this or if it's a glitch or something. But Y class ex-TLV is less miles than ex-NYC. Ex-NYC is 42k for a one way (and 84k RT) while ex-TLV is just 37.8k (and 75.6k RT)!!!
Effectively, even when booking from the US RT, it's worth booking 2 one ways to save 4.2k
