Ideally I would think they would need to make this route include a stop, the big question would be where  (Maldives, Bangalore, Sri Lanka, Ko Samui, Manila, and Singapore come to mind)? Any SE Asia stop could present a difficulty due to Indonesian and Malaysian airspace.

If you've got a 787 may as well use it.

Initial schedule is leave TLV Thursday, arrive in MEL Fri, and depart Sat night. Makes a lot of sense. Aircraft would be parked somewhere over shabbos anyway and this way the crew can rest in MEL and fly back so thdy don't need to send a second crew.

Why?

Because a nonstop TLV-MEL is just too long.

Plenty of airlines offer one stop service.

Elal flight 87 presently en route from TLV to Perth, Australia for (probably) first ever direct flight between the two countries.

Flights a couple of days ago between TLV and Lima, Peru were longer - possibly Elal's longest yet.
