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, there are much better uses for Delta miles…

 

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:

 

58K miles+$53 in taxes for a round-trip from JFK-TLV:

 

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:
August 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 16, 19
September 4, 10, 11, 13, 17, 18, 19, 21, 22, 23, 24, 27, 28, 29, 30

tyh

Thanks!

Is there any way to pay a fee to upgrade these tickets to Delta Comfort (i.e. larger legroom seats)?

genius

If traveling with an infant lap child under 2, then it would only cost 1000 virgin atlantic miles + 40K for the adult, totaling 41K virgin miles. However with flying blue miles there is no way to pay with miles for the infant. The cost whould be aprox. $200 + the 29k for the adult.

HZGTAX

No direct flights JFK-TLV Jan 19 or return Jan 30

MS
