Update: United has matched the $499 fare from Tel Aviv to Newark!

The bruising fare wars from Israel to North America continue to play out.

El Al now has a sale from Tel Aviv to NYC or Miami for just $499 or Tel Aviv to Los Angeles for $699.

Date changes are free, though the difference in fare will be owed. You can also convert to a voucher that can be used by anyone with no fees.

Unfortunately, originating in the US adds $200 to the cost of these flight bargains. Clearly the airlines don’t feel the need to compete for Americans willing to travel to Israel under the current onerous conditions.

Travel is valid on most dates from November through February.

Sample valid date: November 7-15.

Using Chase Points:

You can pay for the ticket with “hybrid points” such as AMEX or Chase points with a card that allows your points to be used at an increased value for airfare in addition to be able to transfer points into airline miles.

If you have a Chase Sapphire Reserve card you can redeem points for 1.5 cents each towards travel. If you have a Chase Sapphire Preferred or Chase Ink Preferred you can redeem points for 1.25 cents each towards travel.

You can login to your account and redeem Chase points for travel here. The round-trip cost will be 33,282 points with a Sapphire Reserve. That rate include all taxes and you will still earn flight miles as well!

TLV-JFK, 1/13/22-1/23/22 is $662


Deals don’t exist for every single day….1/12-1/23 works


Yes, $502 and includes a free bag of luggage.


TLV-MIA is available for $449.

$50 cheaper and you’re not subjected to ElAl

Bracha klien

need a one way from NYC. to TLV. on oct 26 and noticed that with starting ticket in TLV. its 100$ cheaper can i book it that way and just skip one leg anyone know elals policy on this?


No you can not. If you miss the first leg of the journey, the entire ticket is lost,

I can’t find a trip to Miami from Tel Aviv. Help me please. Need to go for my mother’s unveiling. Thanks


If I book for someone else on my Chase Preferred card, do they still get the free trip cancellation/interruption etc. insurance?


only if they’re your 7 krovim


@Dan I just bought United rt tickets TLV-JFK on Sunday, 10/3 for January. Any possibility for United to give me the deal retroactively? Who would you speak to?


Assuming you meant Newark, you can do it yourself online. Login to your reservation, select “change flight” and then choose the exact same flights you’re on now. It should show you the lower price and you’ll get future flight credit for the difference.
If you have an infant on the ticket like myself, it’ll take you a few hours of HUCA…


I do have a lap infant on one of the tickets. They’re tickets for my kids. So after an hour of arguing and haggling, the supervisor finally agreed to give me electronic travel certificates. So I got all of the ETCs for the one reservation but only receipts for the new fare for the tickets on the second reservation. I hope I don’t have to call back for the second set of ETCs.


Dealing with them on the phone is a disaster when it comes to infants. 5 reps will give you 7 different prices.
They also told me about the $50 downgrade fee, and when I asked to change the dates they said it’s pricing the same as the old one. I finally made a new booking in the spot and gave them the confirmation code so they can see the price for themselves, and they finally gave me FFC.


I booked the $587/adult-$363/kids deal from a few weeks ago. Now it’s $499/adult-$495/kid.
I asked United to split the reservation, leave the kids, cancel the adults, then rebook for $499


Are the united flights refundable or only good for a certificate?


United told me that they are not doing electronic certificates anymore


I bought it a few weeks ago for $587 and now after the price dropped to $544 for my dates I switched to the next day and got an option to get back $43 per ticket to the credit card that I used to purchase the ticket. Then a few minutes later switched back to my original flight for free.


Plenty of dates in October for $500- $600


when I book through UR on a chase sapphire preferred, it says non refundable after 24 hours – does this extend to 11:59pm the next day or is that only on priceline?
another question – is there free trip cancellation if I book with points? it says the basic fare does not include cancellation.


just to clarify – I am booking with CSP points and like $10 went on the card. so does the free trip cancellation apply?


Dan – With the price wars, the flight I booked on American has dropped ~$150. As it is a changeable ticket is there any way to call them and get a credit for the difference? Thanks


Re AA When there is a price drop on the fare, the best is to go your booking, change my booking and click on the dates your want(even if it’s the same dates you currently have), then it will tell you what the difference is. But you’ll get the refund in the form of a future flight credit.


P.s. my experience with aa was that once you change your ticket once online, if you wana nchange it again you’ll need to call them.


Hi there.
I am looking for a round trip from TelAviv/Montreal any time from oct 17 returning 31 oct back to tell aviv. If there is a direct flight preferable. If not a stop over in Europe for not nor the a couple of hours. Thank you so much for your help


United? no more. The price for dates in Dec. is already $762 !! and Elal is also pricey.
