Delta’s afternoon flight between JFK and Tel Aviv appears and disappears more often than a magician’s rabbit.

Here are the dates that Delta is now selling the afternoon flight from JFK to Tel Aviv (The daytime return flight from Tel Aviv will be a day later than these dates):
September 18, 20, 21, 22, 24, 25, 27, 28
October 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 10, 11, 12, 13, 15, 16, 18, 19, 21, 22, 23, 25
December 19 through 31
January 1 through 6
May 21 through 31
June: Entire month
July: Entire month
August: 1 through end of schedule (currently 14)

Clearly Delta is trying to cherry pick the dates that they think will be profitable to operate 2 flights, but it’s going to hard to beat El Al and United with such erratic scheduling.

For those keeping score at home, this means there should be at least 101 weekly flights between North America and Tel Aviv at its peak, which will be a new record!

  • Boston: 3 weekly flights on El Al (777-200)
  • Chicago: 3 weekly flights on El Al (787-9) starting in March 2020.

Any chance to you think American might add back the flight from PHL?


I’d guess the next flight will be either UA or DL taking on AA’s play for connecting traffic.

Until the DFW flight, the majority of flights were geared towards the O&D crowd. Sure there’s connections at SFO, or IAD…. but the primary purpose of the flights was to connect tech hubs, defense hubs etc.

And I expect UA and DL to either start up either ORD/IAH or ATL service, as those are the hubs that can meaningfully compete with DFW on connecting traffic


dan when is philly next?


Kind of surprised they don’t have one from Atlanta (Delta).
Other cities I would assume they’re considering:
Houston, Minneapolis, Denver, Seattle/Vancouver, Detroit


I thought AA wouldn’t fly there bc of that residual dispute with US Air?


Weird that elal is still flying the 777 from EWR. Feel like it would make people hesitant to book J knowing they could end up in a 2-3-2 angle seat.


do whizz air and norwegian offer 24 hour cancellation policy on basic basic econ fare booked without baggage ?I read your posts on the 24 hours rule but could not find out if it applies to european low cost carriers. I am asking this because the price dropped on my separate booked leg tickets.


you know dan it would be nice if you can answer once in a while




Are these flights just added meaning increased available options for sukkos opened up?


Very high prices for TISHREI. about 1500$

More bang for your buck

Why does an airline sometimes wait over a year before starting the flights they announce? (eg from DFW and fell ORD)

Israel lover

Is there an article of the best way to fly from NYC to TLV with points?


I’m assuming this is for 2020?


What’s the ElAl 747 doing at JFK if it doesn’t fly any of these routes?

beware delta has secondary security screening and closes the gate an houR-45 minutes before the flight. we once booked the 3:35 flight to arrive fri morning at 9:30 we hit traffic from lkwd to jfk TOOK US OVER 3 HRS. WE CHECKED UR LUGGAGE AT curb (ie got there hr before flight) arrived at gate 25 minutes before flight they would not let us board. we arrived tlv at 2 luggage delayed delta had no idea where it was did not leave airport until 4 … was not cooperative
