Delta has nonstop flights from JFK to Tel Aviv on many dates from now through the end of scheduling for just 54K miles round-trip.

When will Israel open to foreign nationals? It’s impossible to say, but you can now redeposit your Delta miles for free!

Flights are also available from other cities like Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, San Francisco, and more for 56K miles round-trip.

 

Coach awards from JFK are 54K round-trip, Comfort+ are 80K, Premium Economy are 124K, and business class suites are 210K:

 

It’s worth noting that you can book Delta from JFK to Tel Aviv in coach for 46.4K Citi points round-trip or in business class for 115.2K Citi points round-trip. However those don’t earn MQMs.

From 4/1-12/31 you can earn Delta MQMs, MQSs, and MQDs on award flights. Those count towards earning elite status, challenges, and million miler status.

Sample earnings:

JFK to Tel Aviv round-trip:

  • Coach would cost 54K miles and would earn 17,032 MQMs, 3 MQMs, and 810 MQDs.
  • Comfort+ would cost 80K miles and would earn 19,870 MQMs, 3 MQMs, and 1,400 MQDs.
  • Premium Economy would cost 124K miles and would earn 19,870 MQMs, 3 MQMs, and 2,170 MQDs.
  • Business class would cost 210K miles and would earn 29,806 MQMs, 3 MQMs, and 3,675 MQDs.

Miami to Tel Aviv round-trip:

  • Coach would cost 56K miles and would earn 20,302 MQMs, 6 MQMs, and 840 MQDs.
  • Comfort+ would cost 84K miles and would earn 23,686 MQMs, 6 MQMs, and 1,470 MQDs.
  • Premium Economy would cost 190K miles and would earn 23,686 MQMs, 6 MQMs, and 3,325 MQDs.
  • Business class would cost 210K miles and would earn 35,530 MQMs, 6 MQMs, and 3,675 MQDs.

Los Angeles to Tel Aviv round-trip:

  • Coach would cost 56K miles and would earn 24,456 MQMs, 6 MQMs, and 840 MQDs.
  • Comfort+ would cost 84K miles and would earn 28,352 MQMs, 6 MQMs, and 1,470 MQDs.
  • Premium Economy would cost 116K miles and would earn 28,352 MQMs, 6 MQMs, and 2,030 MQDs.
  • Business class would cost 210K miles and would earn 42,798 MQMs, 6 MQMs, and 3,675 MQDs.

You need MQMs or MQSs plus MQDs or an MQD waiver to earn Delta status. Status earned now will last through 1/31/23.

You can get an MQD waiver for Silver, Gold, or Platinum status by spending $25K on Delta cards. The MQD waiver for Diamond status requires a whopping $250K in spending.

You can currently earn up to 90K miles+bonus MQMs+ statement credits with limited time offers on the Delta cards. You can also earn increased MQMs in 2021 for spending on Delta cards.

Will you try to earn Delta status with award travel?

Using chase sapphire points, a round trip to Israel is about $518 nonstop!

R grun

How exactly? I would like to book asap

ES

Can Amex or chase ink points work in any way for this offer?

Yechiel Z

Amex points transfer to Delta …

genius

So a Business Class award trip from JFK to TLV round trip would already earn Silver Status & would not require any waiver?

Sol

Dan, fellow clevelander here. have the flights out of miami to israel been taking off. If I book it what’s the the likelihood it actually departs?

For comparison: In August 2021 United charges 85k vs. AA 60k for NYC-TLV RT (cheapest flights)

Nirc

Are these sale prices or norm?

ELI

Do you earn Delta miles on award flights booked through Air France?

Yuv

I do not have enough Delta miles for this.. is there any way to use Chase points to get these low rates?
Thank you!

in israel

im in israel and i want a 1way ticket to jfk i see it is 37k miles but i dont have any miles is there ant travel agent that can book it for me

R

Just remember that Delta won’t let you book a Business Class flight to TLV on their own metal within 90 days without paying higher miles.

Even if there are low inventory seats available — complete garbage!

I booked a roundtrip departing from TLV for 54k points. When I texted Delta to add a lap infant to the reservation they said it would cost $156 for taxes and carrier-imposed fees. Does it make sense that they are charging so much?
About a month ago I booked a one-way from TLV-JFK with delta points and they only charged me $16 to add lap infant…..

Fredyz boys

@dan
Delta just started a new shtick from jfk-tlv. They are charging $600 YR surcharge in couch And a wopping $2500 fee in Delta one

Estee

Is this this still valid? Earning miles when using miles?
