Delta is currently releasing a decent amount of award space to their partner airlines on their JFK-Tel Aviv route.

The value of using miles is especially good when you just want to book a one-way ticket. Those come in handy if you can find award space or only have enough miles on another airline for a one-way ticket, or if you just need a one-way ticket for any other reason.

You won’t want to use Delta miles for a one-way JFK-Tel Aviv ticket:

 

But you can use use 29K Air France/KLM Flying Blue miles for a one-way ticket between NYC and Tel Aviv:

 

The same rate applies to flights from other US airports, based on award availability:

 

You have to login to an Air France account to search for award space. On this page you can search for awards and click on “You are looking for a flight around these dates” to access the flexible award calendar. However the calendar is pretty buggy, so I’ve done the work for you.

Currently you can find Delta award seats available via partner airlines from JFK to Tel Aviv on:
July 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 29, 30
August 2, 3, 5, 6, 9, 16
September 4, 10, 11, 13, 17, 18, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 27, 28, 29, 30

So chase points transfer to flying blue instantly?

fees

I see a flight TLV –> JFK on 4/27/19, and although it is showing on Delta for 29,000 miles, it’s adding $62.14 in fees (not the $10 as noted above)

Shmuff

I now see when you go to the next page to select flight, it shows the correct amount of fuel surcharges.

Shmuff

It’s showing me a $111 surcharge instead of $10.

United

I think tomorrow (july 20) is the last day of the 25% bonus promotion for transferring Citi points into AF

Mike

How about business class seats?

G

Dirty secret is that DL now is requiring 90 days advance booking in order to get the low rates. This seems to be another thing they are hiding.

If you find a flight with 90 days notice the inventory should match (mileage might be different, but you can get low DL)

G

Also – easier to search on Virgin website since AF website doesn’t seem to provide the DL flights on the calendar — you have to click through on the date to see the DL flights

Shmaya

What is Flying blues cancellation policy?

genius

The citi Prestige also has this benefit.Up to $250 Travel Credit Every Calendar Year
There’s no need to enroll, your credit is applied automatically to eligible travel purchases.

Biglar

I have never flown to israel on a non-elal flight…what’s the deal with putting on tefillin for shacharit? I don’t suppose this would be a Gr8 thing to do on a (for example) royal jordanian flight….what’s ur advice? Some airlines more accomodating then others?

R

I’ve never had a problem on Delta… But I am not obnoxious about it – I don’t stand in the aisle blocking progress

yy

I’ve never had a problem on any airline. Usually most people are asleep anyway.

Bookyjr

I fly quite a couple of times a year with different airlines including Royal Jordanian Airlines and I always put on tefillin and daven in my seat (which is usually an exit) and I never had a problem with either the airline or people on the flight(much to because I don’t bother anyone)

Avi

how does one look for direct flights only?

R

Go to Virgin’s website

Chaim

What better to use To buy direct the city thank you point or to transfer Siri thank you point to blue

Yaakov

mike

Yisroel

Virgin Atlantic

Chana

If I have delta skymiles and a delta account, can I book on the AirFrance website using these miles? If yes, how?

Points

Same question

Avi

I was able to open a Flying Blue account, transfer Amex MR points into it and book an awards ticket in short order.
Thanks, Dan!

Avi

Gut Voch.

Is there any updates as to Delta direct availability in June 2020? Thank you.

BG

Is there anything Delta points are good for? I got a delta gold card for points, but it seems like a even on Delta flights, the Delta points are a dud.

Harry

Royal Jordanian is a very pleasant way to fly. They use new Dreamliners from New York to Amman, offer kosher food, two pieces of checked baggage and polite staff!

jJ
