Option 1
Provided you can ise lounge during layover.
F on the long haul no doubt.
The only issue is, doesn't seem like the F lounge has any sort of rooms to be able to sleep in. So it's just sitting on a chair, in the lounge, for half the night.

Option 1.

Option 2 has a long layover.
Also option 1 give potentially time to sleep on the flight
While Option 2 - layover is the middle of night with a really long stop.
That's true, but with an overnight layover I can get a hotel and a normal night's sleep.

So far, I have option 1 booked though.

Remember that when flying with an infant / small child, every hour you save is worth a lot more then “a little better seat for the adults”.

Not to mention, the double loading and unloading, and spending time / shlepping through connecting airport is another headache to be avoided.

TLV-JFK-JAX (FL) in Y.
Option 1 AA TLV-JFK, B6 JFK-JAX (A320)
Option 2 DL on all flights (E175 on JFK-JAX)


Option 1 is slightly better in timing, since it leaves TLV an hour later. Option 2 is slightly cheaper.
Any other consideration I'm missing?

I would assume Delta has nicer planes and drop more leg room.
Also E175 should be roomier.


Why not take TLV MIA JAX. Does timing not work out

Thanks.
I’m stopping in NY for a week, so MIA wouldn’t help.

Coach united 56100
Coach Jetblue 39000
premium jetblue  83000
premium united 70000
Polaris 100000
Mint 225000
Or book through MR on united (selected airline) 72000 coach, 91000 premium econ
Book through MR on delta coach 51510

UR via SR:
United coach  41120
United prem econ 66320
JetBlue coach 34520
