NYC To Tel Aviv For Just $953 Round-Trip With Tax!

Update #2, 12/05: This sale will end sometime tomorrow.
It is now valid from JFK to Tel Aviv and from Tel Aviv to JFK.

Additionally on Orbitz there are flights on Swiss between January and March on select dates for under $740 round-trip from Tel Aviv to JFK via Zurich or Geneva. Use ITA advanced routing code LX+ to find valid dates.
—————————————————–
Update: 12/02: Now bookable on El Al as well.
—————————————————–
I posted yesterday the details of an upcoming El Al fare sale.

Delta and United have now gone ahead and proactively copied their fare sale, offering nonstop flights for $953 round-trip with tax.  The El Al sale won’t be bookable until tomorrow.  I wrote in yesterday’s post the pros and cons of each airline but suffice it to say that I’d fly on United from Newark even if I didn’t have elite status with them.

-The fares are bookable now on Orbitz, which offers regular mileage earning, price assurance refunds and more importantly free cancellations until 11pm ET the day after you book. (I.E. Book at 1:00am and have 46 hours to cancel for free), or you can book direct from the airline, though with United for example you will then have a shorter cancellation period (24 hours from whenever you book)

Don’t forget to use the best credit card for airfare:
-Earn over 5 points per dollar with Chase Freedom (up to $1,500 per quarter with registration), or 3 points per dollar with American Express® Premier Rewards Gold Card, or 3 points per dollar with The Business Gold Rewards Card® from American Express OPEN, or 2.14 points per dollar with Chase Sapphire Preferred.

Seats for specific dates are all limited and may sell out quickly.

To help find other valid dates check the Orbitz box to search “3 days before and after” to help find other valid dates.

Or I highly recommend that you read about using ITA Software and use their awesome month-long calendar search to help find dates with cheap flights.

-The JFK-TLV flight must begin between 01/13-03/10.
-Maximum stay is 30 nights.

Sample valid dates:
-01/13-01/21
-02/03-02/11
-02/17-02/26 Purim
-03/10-04/08 Pesach

    Side note: Orbitz has changed their “Price Assurance Guarantee”. It’s not really worth much now (no refund check. Rather some sort of voucher credit toward certain hotel bookings).

    Can you explain what you mean “with tax” ? That means tax is included in the price you quote or tax is additional. And what about surcharges?

    Dan, I just called Orbitz. Their customer service said that flights are not cancellable. I tried looking for something on the site that says you can cancel up to 11pm on the day after booking but couldn’t find anything. Are you sure about that? Can you tell me where to find it?
    Thanks!

    @Yitz Weiss:
    After you book it you will have the ability to do a courtesy cancel until 11pm the day after you book it.

    I don’t think it’s a published policy, but many many people have used it.

    I take back what I said, the cancellation until 11pm ET the day after booking is an official policy:

    If you do a courtesy cancellation, you will not be refunded Orbitz fees which are $6.99 to $13.99 (they don’t specifically say in the reservation). Not a huge $ amount, just something to be aware of

    @Tobias:
    Wrong.
    There are no fees for tickets that originate in the US such as this.
    When you book the ticket if there is a service fee it is clearly marked as a service fee.

    ReplyReply
  25. Tobias Says:

    Per the link you provided. “Please note: The refund amount includes only the ticket cost, not any service fees.”

    On the orbits fees page it says “Orbitz fees

    – Service Fee: Airline tickets booked on Orbitz.com for multi-carrier itineraries and flights that originate outside of the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean carry a non-refundable fee ranging from $6.99 to $13.99 USD. The fee varies based on airfare, carrier, destination and other factors.”

    @Tobias:
    Are you reading what you’re posting before posting???

    The fee only applies for flights that originate outside of the US or for multi-carrier itineraries.

    just wanna let you know that I booked tickets tonight for dates in January for $1003.00 for non-stop.
    I guess they had to drop prices due to united/delta sale.
