Star Alliance carrier TAP Portugal has business class fares from US cities to Israel via Lisbon in business class from just $1,053!
However there are caveats:
- The TAP A321neo over the Atlantic has lie-flat business class seats, but the A320 between Lisbon and Tel Aviv is Euro-business that is a coach seat with a blocked middle seat.
- You are allowed to make one free change, but the difference in fare will apply.
- There is an overnight connection in Lisbon required on the return from Tel Aviv. Europe plans to open to vaccinated Americans in time for the summer travel season, but that isn’t a guarantee that will happen. If it doesn’t open, you’ll have to remain in the terminal overnight.
- Alternatively, you can gamble that Europe will open and schedule a free stopover in Lisbon to change the overnight stopover into a bonus trip there.
- Samples below are from Newark, but flights may also available from Boston, Chicago, Miami, and San Francisco.
