MIA to TLV on 4/1 in Y. My choices are Air Canada via Toronto or United via Newark. Im asking about flight experience, chances of cancellations and where would be safer from Coronavirus? Any help would be appreciated.
I would say that transferring in the US is a safer bet to get to Miami than transfering at YYZ. Once you are in the US, you should be safe.

Huh? He's flying out of the US, not into it.

Same logic. Stick with UA, no need to get Canada involved in your trip.

If it's even an option in your mind go for $14.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

$49 E+ would be my pick. Unless it was something I was doing every other week.

Have an option to fly from PHL or EWR.

Pros of PHL:
  • Better airport IME (delays and crowds)
  • Cheaper easier parking

Pro of EWR:
  • 1 1/2 hours closer to NYC (need to go straight there upon return)

Crowds and Delays are negligible these days.

sorry if the q is too broad, but i was wondering what are the products worth trying between NYC-GRU?

is AA F still a possibility? is it ever available in saver?

is LATAM J something special? (i know F is no longer available due to countless of @Dan posts and @AJK TR  :) )

etc. TIA

I run a service that delivers grocery orders from South Florida to Orlando.
I will be delivering everyday between Yom Kippur and Sukkos + the first day Chol HaMoed. I will be in Monsey for the first days of Sukkos and will therefore need to get back to South Florida on the first day Chol HaMoed (October 5th).

These are my two options:

F9 2961 11:30 AM EWR to MIA 02:39 PM $99
B6 0761 01:59 PM LGA to PBI 04:03 PM $104

I will be taking public transportation to my departure airport.

F9 Pros
1) I can use a $29 credit expiring in December.
2) Flight gets in at 02:39 PM allowing me to complete all my deliveries by 10 PM
3) 08:50 AM train from Spring Valley getting into Newark Airport at 10:10 AM is seamless. 

F9 Cons
1) Requires davening Vasikin.
2) No time for breakfast
3) MIA is further away from Boca (pick up location).
4) 70 minute waiting time for flight at EWR.

B6 Pros
1) Calls for 11:30 bus departure to the Manahttan alowing for a nomal night sleep.
2) 30 minute waiting time at LGA Terminal A
3) Time for breakfast
4) PBI is closer to Boca Raton.
5) PBI is relatively small and convenient
6) LGA Marine Air Terminal

B6 Cons
1) Late arrival will mean deliveries completed by 12 Midnight.
2) Departing from LGA requires a Monsey Bus-Subway-MTA Bus connection.
3) Travel time to departure airport is is 40 minutes longer.
4) LGA Marine Air Terminal

Which flight do I take?
