That should almost always be the case, no? Stopover flight vs. direct flight..
For an award ticket it's usually the same.

Not with Skypesos (semi revenue based). Also not with married segments, that can open better availability or fare buckets.

I still donít see any examples that are cheaper CLE-TlV vs JFK-TLV

Anyone see any dates?

Is there a new trend at UA with releasing awards a day or two before flights to/from TLV?

A day or two is not rare? I guess a lot of people could just pick themselves up the last minute and leave?

If the availablity is for further out then it is rare. If it is only for a day or two out then it is not rare and does not need to be posted in the rare availability thread.

Or book in advance an option with a stopover, and then change last minute to a direct if it opens.

Booked with UA, no status, close in change = $125.

Or if you are booked with a partner, then whatever their change policy is.

J availablity is still quite scarce.

I have even more questions now. Why hasn't it been discussed for a long time. Especially with this IB promo...
