Reminder to post this on the smoking hot deals thread on DDF 🙂


You’re the real hero here


Does this mean it will be super cheap if I paid using AA points?


Why does it make sense it’s $365 but with miles it’s a whooping 80k?


I just checked dates for succos and for the summer (July) with no luck


Did you read the post?




If I booked this flight a few days ago for a higher price on AA, is there any chance they would refund the difference?


you could probably cancel and get a travel credit & rebook


Not available Succos season 🙁


Any other destination cities qualify (| with a stop in JFK obliviously) ?


Does a citizen need a permit or quarantine?


$693 what I see


If book R/T for and decide to cancel ticket because not using now will I get travel credit at AA for a year?


Booked a flight for my sister for the summer for $369!
Thanks Dan!!!


Which website?


omg what website?!


if i wanna fly with a baby, do i need a ticket? baby isnt born yet lol


BOOKED!!!!! TY DAN! July 22 – Nov 16


Which website?:)

ddf member

hey what’s with my HT


What is an HT?


when i book on orbitz it says ‘no changes allowed’ is that accurate?


when basic not available search main cabin for $412


Thank you so much for the post!!


here come the meshulachim!


trying many summer dates and cannot seem to find less than 693. any advice?


Any reason not to book this with Chase Points?


not working for me at all over $1000 july 20 aug 9 any idea why..?


this is only valid thru march ’22? pesach is in april next year


It says that American Express, Visa, and MasterCard are not accepted to pay for this purchase via Priceline (I don’t get it, what are they accepting!?) And the prices via American Airlines own website are showing up almost $200 higher. Anyone else seeing this same problem? Any suggestions?

asher gordon

how much are cancellation fees?


Just booked, Thank you Dan!


Can I book two passengers together
Adult plus child , doesn’t work. Only works one at a time . BUT i can’t book a child by himself


is this deal still alive? not showing up on bunch of dates i tried


What are the covid requirements for Israelis that want to come in?

Avi Bereliani

i just tried its 900.00


If I book with the discounted price and then I want to change dates do I need to pay the price of that date or I locked in the price


It says that you can’t book a lap child through Priceline. Can I book the lap child directly by calling AA and adding him to the booking?


August 1-8 doesn’t work. Was it sold out?

Leah Baum

i booked on priceline and they wrote Sorry, Priceline does not offer lap infant seating on international flights. how do I add my baby to the reservation?

Daniel H

Why is Ultimate rewards giving different prices for the same dates?


Tried May 23-31 and I’m getting $875


My cousin in Israel told me that he did a search on American and got much higher prices, but then he switched to another computer with a US VPN and got the lower prices

Leah Baum

what if I booked without the infant already how do I book the baby now or add on?

Joe P

Just booked the RT for $365 June 2- Dec 8 so that my daughter can come back from sem. Ihave no need for the return ticket though. Is there a way instead of just no showing in December To cancel the remainder of the flight and have it go towards a voucher that another family member can use?


I have the same Q. Anyone know the ans?


can it be from us to israel?


It’s even cheaper! Only $250 RT on Alaska Airlines nonstop!


Can I book a ticket from US to go to Israel with this deal???
Please help me understand!!




just checked june 30 to july 4 – $877


Here comes more meshulachim!!!!

Sam Dorish

Boruch Hashem! It has been too long already that they have not been able to come. Many of their families have been struggling in unprecedented ways. No PPP, no stimulus. It has always been the z’chus of those living abroad to share their resources with our bretheren in Israel.


Sam Dorish, well said!!


lol…. and yet Israel has a thriving job market for them to pursue


yeah. 30 shekel/hour goes a long way for a family of 12…




What does free changes mean?
Do I still need to pay the fare difference?

Leah Baum

how can I add a 14 year old to my reservation?


summer dates seem nearly all gone


I think it’s dead




How do you add an infant?


Thank you dan


just booked for 6 in june total was 2190 thanks so much what happens if they dont start flying by then can i get a full refund


is it possible to fly JFK motzei shabbos at 11:10? from far rockaway?


Far Rockaway is 25 mins from jfk so make the cheshbon…


made the cheshbon. cutting it close but I decided to book anyway.


its less then 25 minutess dont worry


can i get seats for free? im flying with 4 children so i would rather sit together


quote from aa site: “Families traveling

If you’re a family traveling with children under 15, and do not already have seats assigned, our system will search for seats together automatically before the day of departure. We’ll try our best to keep you together, but if seats are limited, we’ll assign seats so children under 15 are next to at least 1 adult.”


A family that sits together, fits together


Thank you so much I booked two round trips for my son!!


Can I add an infant by calling AA? I don’t want to by them a seat


How darn cheap can you be Yitzcak? If it was $50 RT, I bet you’d still laphold the baby


Its back up in price now;(


Can I upgrade to business with miles?


If you purchased main cabin (not basic eco) you can join the waitlist, cost is 25,000 miles plus $350 each way.


Dead, Confirmed.


are any dates still available with the cheap prices?


Do you think that more dates will open?


AA just pulled the O class for the entire year which is the fare basis for this fare
Fare is gone


if ppl canx will those seats become avail again?


O class will probably return soon, as the fare was already removed from the system. (meaning O class will come back but at the previous rate of $706 in Basic


Dan, you lied. I’m not finding cheap flights from boro park to EY.

6 pax

are they going to honor the flights that were bought


All gone!!!! AA has blocked this price

6 pax

If I booked round trip but I only want 1 way to jfk, (just it came out cheaper to book round trip,) after my first leg can i contact AA and get a voucher for half the money?


I got 2 tickets June 16-22, can I change the name on the tickets?


Do you have to book a return to israel

Shmerel Gregorovich

There is now for $700 (looking at June 13 – Jun 30)

S katz

booked for June, hope they start flying by then


You said the only way American refunds the money is if the flight is canceled, correct? How about if my child cannot fly because he cannot get a vaccine? I am talking about from New York to Tel Aviv. Would I be able to press for a refund then?


was this a price mistake or an intended sale?

Shmerel Gregorovich

You can still get flights for$368, with a stopover in AMS/CDG – on KLM/Air France, United..


Ended up booking on priceline instead of thru UR due to my points being tied up with a mistake booking.
Any chance if i cancel priceline it’ll become available and then i snatch it via UR?


AA official statement:
Dear Customers and Partners,
we would like to make a statement about our yesterday’s published fares:
“American Airlines had fare filing mistake on tickets to and from Tel Aviv. We will honor the tickets purchased by customers.”
Thanks for your understanding.
Have a great weekend


Thank you Dan. got tickets.
If I need to change the return date is there a difference if I change it now or after using the first leg?


Hi! I booked the flight but I need to change it already- How do I do that pls


Hi Dan. Thank you so much. I bought the tickets and wanted to ask you how cancellations work on the AA flight bought on priceline-do I have a fee for Priceline if I cancel after 24 hours? a fee for AA? Trying to figure out if I should hold on to the ticket. Thank you.

chaim zanvil

no one should have agmas nefesh if they missed it every penny is from the one above and no one can change anything if someone bought these tickets he could lose his saved money somewhere else and if someone missed it he will gain it somewhere else.


I saved $300 by not booking


Hi Dan,
Thank you for this great deal! I booked yesterday for my family of 7! Today, my sons Yeshiva refused permission for him to travel. Is it possible to cancel only one ticket from the reservation? I booked it on priceline and they are giving me some issues canceling. Do you have any suggestions? Please help! Thank you!


Thanks Dan!
Another 2 questions, sorry for bothering. Can I add a lap infant with American for a new born? Is it possible to use this ticket as a one way and drop the 2nd leg of the trip? For example, use only the return ticket or the opposite?


Can you add a lap infant with American?

S katz

Dan, is it possible to order kosher meals? I don’t see any option online


Hi! Need help to cancel this flight and have the credit when im ready to rebook. How do I do tht ? Can i do online ? With AA or priceline ?…Thank you
