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!
