PHL-TLV-YYZ for 1/12 to 1/20 is $590. May be worthwhile to spend the extra $130 and get a “real” round-trip ticket.

Mel

How do I get my bags in Philadelphia? Aren’t they checked through to Toronto?

akiva

i cant find a link to booking

creditor

1) DAN. you should put a quick 101 for these stuff to avoid all those comments i.e. ticket cancellation policies etc.

2) other OTA’s are much cheaper. i tried different europeen expedia versions and its approx $100 cheaper. of course depending on the dates

3) big thanks

Dan

@Mileswhore:
Use 12,500 miles.

@Mel:
All bags must be claimed wherever you land when coming to the US on a flight from abroad.

will have a newborn by the time i go, how would i add on infant now with no name or later with name?

chani

How much would it be (money/miles) to upgrade to business class/envoy class?

Mutty

I don’t get it. I called orbitz and they said they don’t refund. They said maybe the airline does. What gives?

yy665

after booking the tickets can i upgrade to business with miles?

aron

dan plz text me 7325582512 i need tickets

TimT

I saw a round trip flight from New York to Israel with a stop in turkey for 680. Is it safe to land in turkey ? And any chance the airline would offer later on to fly direct for same price ?

Dan

@hesh310:
I’d book a seat with the first name infant.
Not worth holding an infant at these rates!

@Mutty:
Login to your Orbitz reservation and there’s a free cancellation option until 10pm CT the day after booking.

chaim

seems dead?

Artie

Dan – Thanks to you we purchased the tickets from LGA to Philadelphia to TLV.

The question to you – is there any way to call/speak with anyone to modify the segment and throw out the LGA to Philly flight?

If we choose to drive to Philadelphia – can we board the plane there while skipping the first leg?

moshe

what abt TLV-NYC ???

jack

K PLEASE ANSWER ME ASAP ANYONE. HOW DO I ACTUALLY BUY THOSE TICKETS?!

Saving a card in orbitz will make it faster. you need to prep for these deals ppl

A guy idea is to have a hebrew calander near all your computers…

You had to use the multi city feature.

Dan, i future, put a screen shot of your orbitz home page search so ppl get the point.

i was under the impression that only when you transfer from an international to a domestic flight i need to pick up my luggage & recheck, just wondering about the flight from TLV to YYZ stopping in PHL r u sure the baggage doesn’t get transferred automatically as it’s an international flight??

malky

@ Raphi those are the EXACT dates we need, when I check on Orbitz it comes up as $575. Can you please let me know how you found that price? Thanks loads!

@bmgboy:

My wife is afraid the checked luggage will end up in Toronto.
I told her the luggage must deplane and go through customs in Philly.

Who has actually done the “get off in Philly” thing?
I need to reassure her ASAP so I can buy the tickets…

Help!

Question

Do i need to include a child under 2 in my reservation? (USAIRWAYS)

Dan

@Zalman:
I’m not 100% sure, I’m 1000% sure.

@Question:
You can add it later but personally at these prices you may as well buy a seat for $400 and bring a carseat so they will sleep in it rather than holding an infant for 12 hours and paying $150 for that privilege.

Sori

Thanks you Dan!!! I have a flight for 595 from jfk-tlv-phill for the 12th thru the 20th!!! Anyone able or Dan do you know of any stopover besides Frankfurt at great prices like these? Would love to make a trip out of the stopover (anywhere but Germany lol)

Sori

@Sori: Scratch that- make it 495!!!

Yossi

@sury: I am not sure if you are aware but Jan 30 is Thursday which mean you will arrive 3:30 pm on Friday. I booked for Jan 29 for that reason.

Simcha

@Dan The Man, is there a website (flight aggregator?) that can work with multiple origins as well as destinations for every leg of the journey queried?

For Example, I’m in NYC and want to go to TLV roundtrip.

Could I search as the departing location(s) NYC, BOS, PHL, YYZ – All in the DEPART from search, and TLV as the destination.
Then the same for the return, TLV as the sole departing point, and multiple Destinations (NYC, BOS, etc.) and then have it spit out the best rates using any combination I gave.
If there is a site, please do share!
of course, a range of dates departing and returning to be figured into the mix would be great as well!

?

I am confused and not sure how this deal works. I would like to fly to Israel from Chicago and cannot figure out how to use this deal. Help?!

can someone confirm that you can cancel an orbitz ticket within 24 hours?
it doesnt say it anywhere

Amtrak runs from downtown Philly to NY Penn. You have to take a 20 min train from the airport to connect with Amtrak in downtown Philly

Doba

IT ALSO WORKS TO LONDON!
We paid 402 each for succos. Use same multi trip, instead of tlv use lhr ad=nd the retun option to yyz. Worked like a charm!!! Happy travels everyone!

How sure are you that the luggage MUST be picked up and won’t go through to Toronto??
Does the luggage also need to be picked up on the way to Israel? (The stop from LA is only an hour and a bit… would that be enough time…?)

AXR

@cfct:
@cfct or Dan – how?! I’m looking at flights from BOS and nothing near that price is coming up!!!

Does anyone know what/if I will get back any money if I cancel the tickets after tomorrow night?

@Bostoner:
How? What dates? I can’t find anything good from Boston!!

mike

this seems like a sham … tried all dates and could not find low fare from boston

ABC

@AXR, try a few days before or after. What dates would you want to travel and how flexible are you?

Mendel

@yoseph:

Continue to YYZ and take the train to Windsor.

Chaya

I just spoke with orbitz. You can cancel within 24 hours; at times you will have to pay a minimal fee (between $-8-$21). After 24 hours depends on the airline-it can be $125. The remainder of the refund is credited for another flight within the year through orbitz
hope this helps

Tr

@ dan,
Thank you so much.
Question: I’m completely flexible re dates throughout Jan. How do I check the entire month to find dates with cheapest ticket price?
I’m also flexible re any airport in northeast to get me to PHL. Kindly advise how I can check both dates and airports throughout Jan to find best deal.
Many thanks.

michael

the cheapest im getting is over 800…am i missing something or did i miss it?? i really want these tix

AXR

@ABC: I’ve been trying different dates. I’m not getting 600-800 which I know is good but then I need to pay fees/taxes (How much is that per ticket?). That adds up for a bunch of tickets. Then I need to get back to Boston from Toronto! I dont’ think I’m driving that…

ABC

@michael, what are your preferred dates?

HK

I booked from LGA with stopover in Philadelphia and way back is from TLV to Toronto with stopovers in BOTH Phildalephia and Washington. Are you sure we will be getting off the plane in Philadelphia and not just Washington?

@HK, if you check luggage, you must collect it at the entry port in the US. You can get on the next leg within the US, but don’t check luggage (carry on) if you plan on skipping the last leg.

Maya

great, of course the prices for the dates i can actually travel (between Dec 20 til Jan 4th as i’m a student) are over 1000$ at best.
oh well i was just in israel last new years, another visit to see the family can wait.

CLCM

YOU CAN BOOK STRAIGHT FROM USAIRS WEBSITE. ALL THE CHEAP FARES ARE STILL ON THERERE.

@ABC Thanks. So if I plan on just getting off at Philadelphia and not continuiing to Washington or Toronto I could get my checked luggage in Philadelphia right?

@HK

Correct

eg

@Dan is this a price mistake? my outbound stops in germany i’m hoping they will let me change to remove the stopover and go direct PHL to TLV like other deals in the past.

AXR

I did it! We got 5 tickets to Israel via Philly from Boston for $461!!! We can pick up our luggage in Philly (US Air told me when I called) at customs and NOT travel to Toronto!! Dates for those that want to know: 1/9 – 1/21

eg

@DAN I might have found a way around ending in PHL! if you add another flight, for example the return is TLV-WAS and a flight WAS-YYZ it still gives the low rate, but i had to make that WAS-YYZ flight on the same day to get the low rate, so this flight now goes TLV-PHL-WAS and then later in the day WAS-YYZ. Can I get out in WAS? or once i put my bags back on the belt in PHL will they automatically be routed to YYZ even though I booked it as a separate flight and it is later in the day? or since its a sep fligth and not a stopover, will it be routed to WAS?

hi

is orbitz down? its not letting me search.

eli

bought two tickets for succos (gr8 thing is that my shver lives in Toronto). I wasn’t sure if I could cancel for a full refund but I took the jump and guess what I just checked and they offer a courtesy refund for a full refund if you want to cancel. I believe its good for 24 hrs.

Shelley

Can someone please help. I have tried both on Orbitz and on US Airways and I am not finding the 400-500 fare. What am I doing wrong?

nbkramer

If I want to book from 10/20 to 11/03 from the NYC / PHL area returning there as well, how do I find it?

ryan

Just booked an insane flight, but didn’t want to miss out.

$470 seems to be cheapest right now if originating through ORD.

2/3/2013
ORD>PHI>AMX>TLV
2/10/2013
TLV>PHI>YYZ

I live in Toronto so at least one way is pretty good.

@nbkramer

Choose Multi city.
put in nyc – tlv
tlv-yyz

with your dates.

Olneymama

Frantically searched from 830p.m. for 1/2 hour or so – got 468 from BWI to PHL to Zurich to TLV. Return TLV – PHL-YYZ (which we will skip – still have to get back to DC area) 12/ 15-12/24. Booked so quickly bc I was afraid it would run out that I was lucky the flight times are good – when I searched for just 1 traveler it was $393 but when I put in 2 the price went up. Thanks Dan!

Yos

@Yossi: i booked jan 30 arriving 12:40pm. Shobbos is 4 hours later.

c

can someone please explain it to me cuz im not getting any cheap prices

want a deal

I believe most of the dates from NYC airports are sold out. I tried so many and cant find anything decent.
Too bad I didnt see this post till tonight.

For those that are being successful… are there any specific criteria you needed to find your ticket?
like- needs to be less/more than a week stay?
or no flying on weekends…. any guidance will be helpful to the rest of us!
Thanks

zalmen

@bmgboy: anything available for summer 2014?

Raphi

Can we choose to board at Philadelphia, and not fly from NY to Philadelphia?

I see this question posed a few times. Please post if you know the answer. Either way I’m going, it’s just a matter of from where.

www.israeliphonerental.com

@C
I found you need to stay a week for it to be cheap, as well as not flying sundays.

HUCAFan

@Dan:
Is a friday12:40pm arrival too risky, especially with connecting flights?

Raphi

For all those asking and curious, I had booked 2 tickets 12/12 – 12/22 for 380 NY -> TLV -> YYZ (NY -> TLV had a stop over in Philly and Brussels). I then realized after booking that the flight there would get me to TLV at 2:40 Friday afternoon. Not gonna work. I went to my itinerary on Orbitz and clicked on the cancel flights on the bottom of the screen, chose all flights and was credited.
I then rebooked for 12/9 – 12/16 for even cheaper. A whopping 350!! (I just checked and this is still available right now at 11:40 PM EST)
I also booked for 3 others 12/4 – 12/15 for 480 with only 1 stop in PHilly.

The trick is when entering in multi-city with destinations and date, be sure to choose the checkbox on bottom to limit the search to airlines and choose ElAl and US Airways. I found that the tix displayed are much cheaper then.

@HUCAFan

Where do you have to go.
When is Shkia on your dates?

michael

@abc say from jan 12 to jan 20…

Malky

Any deals from JFK to GRU (sao paulo Brazil)?

yyz

Just call in after the baby has a legal name, they will charge you some taxes.

Dan k

seems to be a big problem with the luggage going to Toronto. I spoke with US air, and they told me the luggage will be going to straight to Toronto, you will not be able to pull it off in Philly, the only time they take it off is when you change airlines, in this case its US Airways all the way through, and the final destination is Toronto.

HUCAFan

@www.israeliphonerental.com:

Probably Yerushalayim – Shkiah will be @ 5:31. But with the possibility for delays…

c

it says non refundable does that mean i cant cancel?

Plat

@Dan K

Your choice, trust a min wage US Air rep who has never set foot out of the country, or Dan and the entire DDF and FT community…. Any plane landing in the US from abroad must unload luggage and passengers clear customs upon entry. At that point you have your bags and can walk away.

This isnt a newly discovered shtick, it’s been like this for years.

Here is the policy listed on the US CBP website https://help.cbp.gov/app/answers/detail/a_id/992/related/1/session/L2F2LzEvdGltZS8xMzc3NzQ5ODEwL3NpZC9YZnlkY1l5bA%3D%3D/~/when-does-a-traveler-clear-u.s.-customs-and-border-protection

m65

Is this available starting in tlv?

Sara

Dan, can you confirm what Dan k said about us air saying luggage going straight to Toronto ? On my itinerary , the last leg is canadair operated by us airways.

Olneymama

If you are willing to fly from the DC area and have 2 stops each way and leave at 6:15 a.m. on the return flight they have $383 12/15-12/25.

Just booked at 12:15 Am from Laguardia to tlv and return from tlv to toronto for $381 round trip!! the dates are 11/25-12/3 (shabb chanukah)Trick is like Raphi wrote earlier “when entering in multi-city with destinations and date, be sure to choose the checkbox on bottom to limit the search to airlines and choose ElAl and US Airways. I found that the tix displayed are much cheaper then”

@mendy zee: Def the most practical.

Olneymama

There are plenty of tickets available but the stopovers are pretty annoying – like 14 hrs overnight in Paris.

SR

Are all flights to and from NYC to TLV with 2 stops?

Kidooo

When i try to cancel on orbitz it’s not exactly free, it says “Orbitz service fee$35.98” that won’t b refunded so how is this free exactly?

yyz

@Dan k: @dan k@Plat: +1

ryan

$380 NYC > TLV on 12/9/13 return on the 16th still available as of 1:40AM EST.

yyz

Anyone that travels regularly knows,us airways rep has no clue. A few days ago I had an airport security tell me “I love planes, I wish I had a chance to go away”.

yyz

Booked 3 tiks lga-tlv-yyz . I live in Toronto so that’s perfect for me. Just over 1300 total for all three!

@Charlie

Thank you so much for the tip! Just booked 4 tix for Chanukah for $370 each. Still found other dates as low as $350.

mary

@Dan can you please update the dates for the cheap tickets. Thanks

Tanya K

Just booked Dec 9-16 for $353!! It’s a little crazy: NYC-PHL-BRU-TLV on the way there, and TLV-BRU-PHL-DCA-YYZ on the way back, but I’m travelling hand luggage only and getting off in Philly. For those who need their checked baggage I’m not sure how this would work.

Yaakov

just booked 2 tickets with orbitz nyc – tlv – yyz 382.36

moish

just booked a flight Newark-PHI-TLV and the return from TLV-PHI can someone tell me if i go to Newark and check in for my flight to PHI and dont take the flight instad i drive to PHI will i b able to fly or is it considered a no show

Avi

Do you ever do reverse direction, TLV to USA?

yysltd

Hey Dan,

Are there tickets from Israel to the U.S. or just from the U.S. to Israel?
We’d love to get a deal from Israel.

Thanks

Miriam

Anyone know how to search the dates in ita matrix software? The multi city doesn’t give you a calendar of prices.

YY

Was able to book 7 for Chanukah for $405 through London (had to split between two bookings since it would not show me the better price for all of them together)
ended up having to cancel an earlier reservation and was surprised that Orbitz keeps a administration fee of $72!
even though I cancelled in less than 24 hours!
anyone aware whether this should happen ?

In any case it is still worth it.
Thanks Dan and all those who posted the dates they were finding!

chaim

I was able to cancel or orbitz with no fees.
Was just USAirways, no other airlines on the ticket which might add fees.

Moish

HI, is the party over? cant find anything anymore
can anyone suggest any dates, for 2.5 -3 weeks nov, dec, jan?

please

Thanks

Igor Ivanovich

Just found on Orbitz LAX TLV YUL for Pesach Apr 6 – Apr 27 for $793. This is with checking the box to search US/Elal as mentioned. Normal price seems ~$1600.

If anyone is still finding good rates, please post here the dates, airports, site found, price etc. Thanks so much!!

dave

its still there from dec. 9 to dec. 17 for 385 but make sure to select airline #1 elal @ #2 usair not the oppsite

dave

also from dec. 15 to dec. 25 for 391 nyc – tlv – yyz

dave

U could have yp to 4 tix for less then 1600 but if want mre then 4 book twice

Igor Ivanovich

On Usairways.com, LAX-TLV-YYZ Apr 6 – Apr 27 is $743 incc. taxes.

It could be better booking on Orbitz for their cancellation policy.

www.israeliphonerental.com

@yysltd: Just from USA

Igor Ivanovich

On Orbitz.com right now I see flights,
Flight 1: Los Angeles, CA (LAX) to Tel Aviv Yafo (TLV) Wed, Jan 8, 2014
Flight 2: Tel Aviv Yafo (TLV) to Montreal, QC (YUL) Mon, Jan 13, 2014

$525

dave

rep. to moish
you could have from dec 2 to dec 25 for $374

Yisroel

Commenter “Raphi” points out that on Orbitz if you click on “Narrow the search to my preferred airlines” and select El Al and USAirways that prices are actually cheaper!

THIS IS CRAZY!!!! BUT IT REALLY WORKS!!!! THERE CAN BE A DIFFERENCE OF 300-400 DOLLARS!!!!

Yankel Ziditchoiver

Booked !! BWI – PHL – TLV , and then back to Philly for $462.00 ! Amazing flight for us Baltimore guys on those beautiful, new US-Air planes…..WOW !

Dan…..u da’ man

Anonymous

Flights are $543 from New york. i did dates 1/7/14-1/20

To Plat

I see your link. It says if your FINAL destination is the U.S. then you will have to declare customs upon your first entry in to the U.S. BUT if your final destination is not the U.S. then why would you declare customs in the U.S.????? does anyone have any facts?? Please share before we all get messed up?

Addr

Nov/12 LGA – PHL – TLV

Dec/6 TLV – PHL – YYZ

still at $500

YYZ

I still see dates in December for 391

YYZ

Dec 15- 24 Lga- tlv – yyz $391. AVAILABLE 9:22 AM (on ORBITZ, $8. less from ord) I doubt this fare is a mistake, looks like US Air is looking for attention. The fare started at 461 and then went down an hour later. Then gradually started crawling up on US Air website. That would be a plan, not a mistake.

Ari

Just found for 380 12/9 – 12/16

@dan Can I pick up the flight from Philedelphia?

Adi

is this deal now over? I cant seem to find it…
