Update, 6/19: American has been calling people to rebook them onto nonstop flights in premium economy, making this deal even better than it appeared. Congrats to everyone who got in on it!

Missed the deal? Set up deal alerts now so you won’t miss the next one!

Update, 5/25: This deal ended last night, but American appears to be honoring this fare and the nonstop fare. Additionally, nearly all tickets sold are fully refundable, so you can decide to cancel until the time of departure.

Readers and commenters have also noted that they have been able to change their return date without any any difference in fare!

You can credit an American W class premium economy ticket to BA Avios (which allows family pooling) and earn 150% of the miles flown (at least 17K Avios), or you can credit to Alaska and earn 110% of the miles flown, plus any applicable elite bonuses.

Update: DEAD!

OneWorld carriers and El Al have premium economy flights from Tel Aviv to several US cities, such as NYC, Chicago, Honolulu, LA, Miami, and more for just $219 one-way or $395 round-trip!

A connection appears to be required.

This fare is only valid for flights originating in Tel Aviv. It won’t work for flights originating in the US.

You can book this AA’s Israel site here, or via Momondo, or Israeli booking sites. You can search for TLV to NYC to pull up this fare.

I found many valid dates from now through the end of scheduling next year.

Sample valid date: July 5-12

Post what dates and prices you find!

Is there still a chance this will become alive again?

Momo

Hood news!
After chatting with AA online I confirmed that you can cancel these flights up to 14 days from booking, for 100 ILS ($30)

Thank you for your patience, Moshe! I have contacted Resolutions team as well and this is the information I have confirmed.
We have a specific policy about Israel Refund. This is for ticket refunds according to the Israeli Consumer Protection Law (5741-1981). It is showing that Refund is requested in writing within 14 days of the purchase date, but no less than 7 business days before the departure date of the first flight, A cancellation fee applies

5% of the ticket’s price or ILS currency 100, whichever is lower, Refund will be processed to original form of payment (FOP), then Customer needs to access prefunds.aa.com.

How can I tell if my reservation is completely refundable up to departure? Seems certain bookings are.

Enrique

Congrats to everyone that got in on this deal! Is it possible to upgrade premium economy to business using points? How would one check if there is upgrade availability before purchasing? TIA

Avi

Truly Amazing,

I was able today to make a change in the reservation, changed the return flight to a day earlier at no addition cost.

flyingace

Who’d you book with? Who’d you contact to change date?

Avi

I booked with AA directly, contacted AA, was able to change a British Airways ticket.

flyingace

Nice!

Yossi

I had a reservation that I pit on hold & was going to pay in the morning , when I went to pay it was cancelled , do I have any recourse ?

JBLA

How do you possibly get to earning 34,000 Avios? My calculations are half that.

dovid

can you be more clear to what you mean with american “Appears ” and how you get to 34,00 miles

Anonymous

How can you tell if your ticket is fully refundable or not?

layah

can you please help me, trying to book but can’t seem to find anything under 219$ + 80k points. per ticket aug 9-24

Alex

Do you think the free changes allow for a different airport ( a different stopover location) and date change?

kim

I tried making a change, was told is was a mistake and would be honored but no changes. Dan, are you saying free changes based on comments here or something I can do to make a change?

Free changes!

“WHEN THERE ARE NO CHANGES TO THE FIRST FARE
COMPONENT BUT OTHER FARE COMPONENTS ARE CHANGED
THE ITINERARY MUST BE REPRICED USING HISTORICAL
FARES IN EFFECT ON THE PREVIOUS TICKETING DATE OR
CURRENT FARES IN EFFECT ON THE DATE OF TICKET
REISSUE WHICHEVER IS LOWER.”

kim

yeah but translate this. i booked a one way. i can change to any day without a fare increase?

Hoping

I have the question. Any been successful doing that ?

Israeli

From what was posted on here, and just by reading the comments it seems that customers have been able to change the return leg only on a return flight. Hence if you have a one way it wouldn’t work.
But why don’t you call American and find out for yourself…

yossig

My first leg is TLV-FCO on LY booking Code Y.

Would it still be refundable?

Sol

How about to credit the miles to American direct how much do we get ?

Chaim

I assume 1:1

trying to get tickets

try to get tickets fron june 13 tlv to nyc , how can u still book?

Eli

I try at AA Israel. And it’s not this price.
I like to get some different websites. Please

Israeli

Daniel, I have no words!

I’m an Israeli and travel to USA couple times a year. I’m in USA at the moment and was awake and manage to take good advantage of this deal. Thank you Daniel, I booked 4 round trips for the next couple of months.
Most on BA Metal (besides a few, connect on AA but all route through London so as to maximise TP)
4 return flights, will get me BA Gold + some 84k+/- (once you reckon the bonuses for Bronze, Silver etc.)

With the current value of BA avios, it’ll almost half the price of the ticket, as you’ll be getting close to $200 worth. Great deal, so glad they are honouring.

Thank you again Daniel

Moshe R

Anyone have any tips about changes – every change I try is $3k per ticket!

someone

I dunno. Got out of bed at 2:30 am to grab this deal, but am only seeing outrageous fares.

avrumi

Thanks for the heads-up.

I cancelled my kid’s mileage ticket (25k flying blue miles + $150 in fees & taxes) and bought a $270 premium economy with 2 free checked bags instead from TLV-BCN-ORD (Y for 1st leg and W for 2nd leg).

What i dont understand is how i can earn 17K avios by crediting my ticket to BA (or to Alaska and earn 110% of the miles flown)?

Sky King

Trying to figure out what an EXP with AA would earn on TLV-LHR-CLT-PHX one way and if I should credit to AA or do BA.

Aay B.

2 one-way premium economy tickets (THANKS DAN!) tlv-nyc with LHR stop (1st leg BA – 2nd leg AA). They’re both W class fare.
Really want to change it to TLV-NYC direct (which I see available for that date). Tried chatting with an AA agent and was told i can change but it’s gonna cost me $3700…
is it the “with-stop” to “direct” that’s giving them the excuse to charge this 1000% upcharge, or is it “BA-AA” to “AA only” (or is it a simple YMMV/HUCA kind of thing)?

Yochai

Not sure either.
It appears that only the return leg is changeable.
I’m trying to change my return with no success. Maybe because it’s a combination of Economy and PE?
On another note, based on peoples comments here maybe Dan should consider new fonts/design for the word DEAD. This was written on the post at 11:30 EST on 5/24, yet it seems like lots of readers are still trying.

Moshe Katz

Where am I best off crediting miles NYC-MAD (Y) MAD-JFK (W) we are a family of 7

Israeli

BA. Open household account if you don’t have already.

avrumi

tried changing dates and no go. wanted fare difference of $3700.

Aay B.

One way?

avrumi

yes

Aay B.

Exact same situation here..
3700 is what I got too

Aay B.

I haven’t received a phone call or email about rebooking onto a direct (I booked a one way for 2 travelers TLV-NYC with stop in LHR so first leg is BA).
Should I call in?

Canadian

Same here 🙁 , I did book one way and regular coach economy though, would this matter?

Yohanan

Is it still up??

Aay B.

No. This is for those who booked back then

LY

I believe only trips with a leg on LY got a call. I have on BA no call. A friend of mine with 1 leg on LY had that changed to direct

Yaakov

If you get a call to re-book direct, kindly ask for a number to call in for others and post it here please 🙂 (have an LY segment)

Canadian

Any way to get them to change a booking to be able to change online vs. calling in? And why are certain tickets still that way in 2022

Yitzy

Following
I called AA and was told the change would cost 4k per person

Ruchy

Listen to this hillarious one. I booked this deal TLV-LHR-TLV economy one way on brittish. After Dan posted about PPL being offered to switch to nonstop i reached out AA on the phone, where they told me this change will cost me 2K, said thanks but no thanks.

Next day i log in to BA and i see a confirmed added leg to my booking of a nonstop flight tlv-JFK! i right away called BA to resend me the confirmation in a email (Cuz’ “american only sent me a hebrew email…”) and sure enough that is black & white on the confirmation. AA only shows the original itirinary.

My questions are , 1) is there any way to get AA to honor this based on a BA email? 2) How do i go about having them split the itirinary so i can use just the last part of the booking?

I tried using the messaging feature on the app to change to nonstop based on a 5 minute flight schedule change and they did it for free although I was downgraded to reg economy.

mother of kids

We booked these tickets for $450 each, and I wanted to add a lap infant now, and they charged me $396.57, because now the tickets are like $3,965…
Do you think there’s any way for us to get a cheaper price? because we’re basically paying as much as our ticket for the infant.
Thanx!
