British Airways is having an excellent first class sale from Tel Aviv to NYC via London. Adults are just $2,917 round-trip and kids under 12 are just $2,309 round-trip.
This BA A class fare will earn a whopping 250% elite miles and 450% redeemable miles when credited to Alaska (500% if you have Alaska MVP, 550% if you have MVP Gold, or 575% if you have MVP Gold 75K). That means someone flying from Tel Aviv to JFK round-trip without elite status on Alaska will earn 28,420 Alaska elite qualifying miles, enough to earn Alaska MVP status! They’ll also earn 51,156 redeemable Alaska miles. That’s enough for a round-trip business class ticket on Cathay Pacific from JFK to Vancouver or a one-way business class ticket on Cathay Pacific to Asia!
The BA first class hard product isn’t quite on par with the top first class cabins in the world, but the kosher food in their London lounges and on their flights from London is second to none.
- DDF member “lindluck” posted pictures of the kosher meal here from a London to JFK flight in first class.
- DDF member “gold” posted pictures of the London to Tel Aviv first class meal here.
Until December you can find short connections, but starting with the launch of one daily A350 in December you’ll have to overnight in London to be in first class.
