American, Delta, and United have excellent nonstop business class fares between NYC and Tel Aviv.

Israel is currently open to vaccinated or recovered people who have first degree relatives in Israel or a qualified special occasion. With Israel’s COVID case and positivity rate plummeting to nearly zero, the hope is that the country will reopen this summer, at the very least for vaccinated or recovered travelers.

Changes can be made for free, but the difference in fare will be owed and refunds are only offered if the airline cancels or reschedules the flight. You can however change the flight to an inexpensive $40 flight and get a voucher for the difference that anyone can use.

United has excellent availability on business class fares from Newark to Tel Aviv for $2,449 round-trip. Delta has very good availability on business class fares from JFK to Tel Aviv for $2,449 round-trip. American has limited availability on business class fares from JFK to Tel Aviv for $2,339 round-trip.

Sale fares are also available from Tel Aviv to NYC.

It’s worth noting that you can save more if you have an AMEX Membership Rewards card like:

With those cards you can book via and drop the price of American’s $2,339 fare to just $2,243 or 204,982 AMEX points. That’s just 133,238 points after rebate if you have a Business Platinum card or 153,736 points after rebate if you have a Business Gold card.

Or you can drop the price of Delta’s $2,449 fare to $2,320 or 232,062 AMEX points. That’s just 150,840 points after rebate if you have a Business Platinum card or 174,046 points after rebate if you have a Business Gold card.

These fares will also earn a nice amount of miles. Based on the retail pricing for the flight:

  • This American I class fare will earn at least 11,230 AA miles+22,710 EQMs+2,246 EQDs, or more for elites. Alternatively you can credit to Alaska to earn at least 17,033 Alaska miles, or more for elites.

Which airline’s business class should you take? I’ll try to tackle that in my next post.

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 155,941 points with a Sapphire Reserve. That rate include all taxes and you will still earn flight miles as well!


Using AMEX points:

You can login to your account and redeem AMEX points for travel here.

This is bookable for 204,982 points with AMEX in coach. Plus you’ll get back a 35% rebate with the Business Platinum Card or a 25% rebate with the Business Gold Card, dropping the total needed to as low as 133,238 points. That includes all taxes and you can still earn miles for flying!

Wouldn’t 104 RT using NH or 95 RT using Turkish be a better deal?


This isnt award travel




Ana points

El Capitan

Bit of an obscure off topic question but lemme try…
Anyone know if AA is taking meisim from chevra kadisha on the JFK-TLV flight? And what about delta?


If I book it with amextravel, what’s there policy refund canceling/switching the ticket? Is it the same as United,American, and delta?


Much easier to deal directly with the airline


Any suggestions on where to credit the miles, and how many miles would be earned?


thanks! just called United to refund me price difference since i bought these tickets 2 weeks ago, they gave me a ETC, i had to pay $50 for the service, but the ETC was for over $600 so worth it 🙂


Is American launching their NYC-TLV flights for this summer or they didn’t announce yet? When will they announce? (Have tickets and can’t go with my little kids because they’re too young to vaccinate and they’re not recovered)


Tried for June 9 – June 14. Nothing doing. Is there a minimum stay for these prices?


Hands down the delta suite seat is the best option


where can i transfer Chase to Chase (spouse)


Combine Points


You wrote that they only refund if they reschedule or cancel. Does reschedule include even if they change the flight by a few minutes? Because I got an email saying That the flight was rescheduled but was only by a few minutes


is United Business okay?


We have tickets on May 10 to Israel returning May 24. We don’t think that we will be able to enter Israel I bless Israel opens up very soon. If we change our tickets which we used Chase Ultimate rewards to purchase to a lower fare would we be eligible for a refund of the price difference. Our tickets are in business class.


Those Delta MQDs are off… If it’s possible to get a VS/AF codeshare it would give 40% of distance or 4542 MQDs…
