HOT! Transaero: Tel Aviv To JFK For $302-$414 Round-Trip, JFK To Tel Aviv For $374-$559 Round-Trip!

222

Update, 08/19: The price from Tel Aviv-JFK has gone down for adults from $561 to $468 and for kids from $449 to $356. The price from JFK-Tel Aviv has gone down for adults from $706 to $613 and for kids from $521 to $428.

Update, 08/18: The price from Tel Aviv-JFK has gone up for adults from $414 to $561 and for kids from $302 to $449. The price from JFK-Tel Aviv has gone up for adults from $559 to $706 and for kids from $422 to $521.

Update, 08/15: The price from Tel Aviv-JFK has dropped for adults from $462 to $414 and for kids from $350 to $302. The price from JFK-Tel Aviv has dropped for adults from $607 to $559 and for kids from $422 to $374.

Infants remain $58.50, though for just $302 or $374 it can definitely make sense to make them 2 years old, purchase a kids rate seat, and bring a carseat onboard for them…

Eric

Anyone flown Transaero before? How did it go?
I am guessing since these need to be booked directly from Transaero and not Priceline I don’t have until midnight tomorrow night to cancel.

Motti

Their site miscalculates the fuel charges. The fuel charges for those flight should be $197.54, but their site only calculates $60. hence the low price.

Neil

It’s not miscalculated…fuel prices have come down drastically.

Motti

I checked multiple flights, and their site doesn’t charge the correct amount of taxes/fuel charges.

Avi

TLV>JFK children as low as $358.
It’s a great airline…..bring your own food and entertainment. Evrything else was great!

Yingerman

For flights from/to USA.
Full refund if cancellation during 24 hours after purchase and more than 1 week before the departure.

Travel Agent

Tickets Are Non refundable

Yingerman
LeAnn

When I select the flight, it shows $607 fare, but once I click NEXT, it shows fare at $833 + fees = $1,070.56. Anyone know what I’m doing wrong?

Yingerman

@Travel Agent: Not true!!!
See above comments.

jr

if the site is correct if you can catch a flight on the 777-300 it should have better entertainment options/look newer

Eric

Anyone else besides @Avi flown this airline? Can’t tell if he is joking or being serious…

Eva

I flew transaero before. Very good flight. The stopover airport -no one speaks English. But other then that it was very very worth it!

Avi

@Eric: I am being serious. 777-300 is from the 90’s. Seats have been reupholstered and are in great shape. The sale fares mean that you can’t choose which economy class you are in. They have regular economy in a 2-5-2 configuration with narrower aisles and then they have discount class which is also 2-5-2 but wider aisles = narrower seats. No blankets and pillows. 4 inch screens with looping video all in Russian. Kosher food but both meals were beef and rice. Bring your own food and your own entertainment. I flew a family of 6 from Israel for the summer for just under $2700. Looks like next summer will be the same…

moshe

When I click on the link it shows some error. Anyone else having this issue?

Eric

@Avi: Thanks for clarifying. I really appreciate it. Sounds like you would still do it again, so I guess it was not that bad. Any places to charge devices (phones, iPads, etc.)? How did you keep kids entertained?

What about safety and security? Any concern about connecting in Russia?

Anonymous

@Eric:My brother flew a few years ago, and we flew aeroflot last summer. both are safe airlines.

Anonymous

@Avi: not rue. They provide kosher food

Dave

If transaero.us comes up with an error, try transaero.ru and change to English.

canadian

From montreal to TLV is also cheap?

Avi

@Eric: No charging places on the plane that I recall. We bought 2 android tablets. The flights are pretty much overnight so that’s always good – the kids slept and then watched movies played games on the tablets. Airport safety and security was fine. I’ll add my voice to the many who have pointed out that FAA regulates all transcontinental flights for safety standards. Concerns may be more well placed for flights within a foreign country.
@Anonymous: I said twice that there is kosher food but my experience was two of the same meat meals. The one that they served for breakfast included (with the beef and rice) a fruit cup. Dinner had cake. We brought sandwiches and granola bars. All was fantastic

jacob

Anyone know about the safety of azerbajjian airlines? Thanks.

danthecan

I flew Transaero from JFK-TLV in February with 3 kids. The flights were totally uneventful. You can order kosher meals. The meals on the flight departing JFK were American food, Borenstein caterers I believe. The meal on the flight departing TLV was Badatz. The meals on the flights departing Moscow were Russian food under the hashgacha of R’ Berel Lazar. Consult your LOR. The terminal in Moscow is 5 years old and is very nice. There is free wifi, although I suppose that Putin might be listening in. When you connect to the wifi you will be directed to a login screen. The login info is contained in the fine print. Don’t rely on the flight entertainment systems for entertainment. There were a couple of show that were in Russian with no subtitles. We had a minyan in the Moscow airport for Shacharis both ways and there was no issues.

N

I keep trying and had another person try and it’s saying credit card declined no matter what card I use…anyone else getting this?

YYZ-TLV is also showing good economy fares.

What cc?

What is the best credit card ? To use for this trip? I have them all

son in law and daughter are getting the credit card decline message now

Getting error messages when trying to search a flight, i guess its a result of my filter (Nativ)

You need to call your credit card company to let them know you aprove this transaction

@moshe: No need to book now for unborn child. Child (B’sha’a tova :)) has to be ticketed separately. Even if the price goes up, you are only paying 10% of full fare for that tix so it won’t be more than 150-200$

I se there are a few questions regarding the airline and airport. I went earlier this year on transaero from JFK to VKO airport. the flight was uneventful. Accommodating staff who don’t speak English, kosher food on the flight. The flight was full of frum Jews (Kudos to dans deals!)
The airport was empty, spacious and beautiful. The gift shops all use Euro currency, the Russian ruble can only be used to be drinks. There are many outlets along the walls. There is a beautiful restaurant called the “my my” in the back end on the right side of the waterfalls that has wifi. you need to purchase something from them (cheapest a drink!) and then you can use the wifi, couches etc for hours..its comfortable and quiet. Upstairs outside the lounge is another place to catch wifi. no bentches up thr but its another option. important point although Verizon assured me I would have service (at an expensive price of course!) when it came down to it there was no service to be found.. the wifi was litteraly a life saver for the long trip (13 hour stop over) I stayed overnight in the airport as you need a visa to leave if you are only an American citizen. when I went to Russia Russian ruble was 33.3 for the dollar. Also, it is definitely worth it to download a Russian-English dictionary app.. it was a lifesaver!!!!
hatzlacha and hope this info helped..
it was a great and CHEAP experience that I highly recommend!

Jake

is it safe to send an 18 year old alone with a stopover in Moscow?

Hi,
I am trying to book and I put in all the passenger information and when I press next to pay a Russian message is popping up and wont let me move forward, what does it want from me? Thanks!

I keep getting an error when I try press search from the .ru site. I cant even open the .us site. Is it because I am trying to book from Israel? What can I do?

How many pieces of luggage can u take, and what about luggage for a baby ?

Anonymous

@ carageenan:
From Israel the RU site has no prob

Paula

Though the flight itself is fine (my son flew this past school year on Transaero), the airline/”technology” is maddening. Their website is totally un-user-friendly, with MANY unexplained glitches. At any given time, your reservation can be dumped because the system decided you were on too long! The direct phone call yielded a “black hole” of time on hold (like an hour). When connected, the agent offered no real solution to their not processing the credit other than to tell me to try later. A heck of a way to run an airline. If you can persist through all of this, go for it….just be warned.

Israeli

Thanks so much Dan! Just booked my whole family (all 6 of us) for Pesach for $1895!!

Extra seat

I’m assuming that if u want a seat for a infant that I should include him in the 2 to 12 age bracket?

Joe

I purchased tickets and went through checked with my credit card and it was processed but never got a confirmation email from them does anyone have a us number that I can call to confirm my tickets ?

I booked a flight from Tel Aviv to New York on April 19 with three little children then I saw that there is a connection 15 hours in Moscow

I called the airline to cancel and they that the ticket is non refundable we can not cancel it
I understood here that can cancel within 24 hours
thank’s a lot!!

I booked tickets for my family of 6! Thank you!
I put in fake passport #s because I wanted to hurry so that it wont time out in the middle like it did the first time I tried. Do I need to call the airlines and change them or can I leave it as is? Also, I booked an infant ticket as Unbornbaby will they let me switch the name later or did I just waste $58?

Thanks Again!

@rr: as per a representative: 2 pieces of 25 kilo each + 8 kilo carry on per adult and child. 10 kilo luggage for infant.

Most US credit cards will initially view these ruble transactions as suspicious and initially decline the charge. If you receive an email from your credit card company questioning the transaction and recognize the charge, it will then allow you to re-enter the whole order and would be approved the following time. Worked for me.

We flew Transaero a few days before Succos last year. Most of the plane was chassidim and/or frum. We had a minyan in the airport.The Russian stewardesses are a little uptight. They were really nervous giving out the kosher meals and thrown off when people had switched seats. The food to Russia was fine, but from Russia to EY as well as on the way back . . . well, bring your own. The hechsher I was told from a good source in Passaic is a good one. FYI – I think it is a Lubabvitch hechsher. They gave us every meal the same “box” with little containers inside of cold stuff. The chumous was frozen, the fish or whatever it was didn’t look great (although 1 son loved it) the jelly ok. The little hot meal that accompanied it was ok but not the yummiest. It wasn’t enough food. Maybe they’ve improved since last year. There were monitors in front of in each seat with movies, flight tracking, etc. although the stewardesses take time to give you plug in earphones (I save them them from other international flights for my kids and brought them along so they wouldn’t have to wait.) I think there were re-charge plug ins for electronics underneath/between the seats, but not 100% sure.

We book from a travel agent in EY as their fees are cheaper and it is faster.

Sam

I think that they going out of business, so they give these low prices,

A YID

For those getting payment denied errors, learn from my experience. The processor for the payments (chronopay.com) might have blacklisted you after your payment was denied the first time by your cc company. Using a different card will not help. Use a card with a different name (family member or friend) and for good measure use different email address and phone number. Before you use their card make sure that the notify their cc company to expect the charge so that it is authorized already.

I’m been trying to book tickets from TLV-NYC-TLV and the price I’m getting is 515$, looking at the breakdown shows that the Taxes increased to 290$ Vs 190$ shown on the screenshot above (the fare remains the same 225$), is there anything to do about this?

cr

Taxes are increasing tickets asterisk now $660, but the fare is still the same $185, is there anyway to get the original $559?

Yaakov

Another question:
according to Transaero’s website you’re allowed 2 piece luggage only from / to USA but not on the connection flights (those are limited to 1 luggage – 20KG), does anyone know if you can take 2 suitcases also at the connecting flight to / from Israel?
otherwise the option of taking 2 suitcases is meaningless!

I trouble-checked with my credit card company (Capital One). The problem wasn’t coming from their end. Finally, gave up the double points and used a different credit card. Try that. Maybe it will work. It went through promptly and I got 4 tkts for $559. each. Thanks Dan !!

I tried booking 5 tickets on Transero for less than $500 per ticket to Israel in January, 2016, but was unable to complete purchase because the airline required the passport ID# which I don’t have as I am in the process of getting them now. Otherwise, the cheapest airline, El Al is more than $900 per ticket. Dan, any suggestions? Should I wait for prices to come down or book now? Many thanks for your advice!

Flew back from Israel on transeroe this past summer. Flights are fine, I think the seats are actually much wider than American Airlines in economy but don’t know for sure.in-flight entertainment & kosher food was a waste of time… There are three Moscow airports we flew into VKO it’s a big wide open terminal. The wifi is free but the login is confusing (you have to enter a code from the login page) we had a minyan for shachris of like 30 ppl which was nice. Think you need a converter like Israel for chargers. The real annoying part is no one speaks English! I spent a lot of time trying to find the one Priorty pass lounge but it seems like it is not accessible from a connecting flight since you can’t leave the terminal. In the terminal Turkish has a really hot lounge & I forgot which airline was the second.. Duty free is amazing there! Got glenlivet 21 for 90$ (in U.S. It’s over 200$) & the glenlivet 18 1liter bottle for 50$ (in U.S. The smaller bottle is over 100$)

Do you have to get your luggage from the first leg and bring it to the second flight, or does the airline do it for you?

booked ticket, then realized got wrong dates, canceled online within 24 hrs after cs told me to do so and rebooked correct dates. got an email saying first ticket wont be refunded. filed DOT complaint, what now? deny charge on cc? will that screw me over in any way?

Dan

@m65:
DOT should get back to you within a week.
Otherwise do a chargeback and submit the link from their site that says their refund policy.

I booked for Pesach earlier, but I found cheaper fares now for the same flights. I submitted a refund form for the 1st tickets but does anyone know if I can even rebook the new reserv. now or will it get cancelled out in their system until they refund me for the 1st one in a few days? Thanks!!!

When I went in summer I had the following happen; booked for 603$ (Tlv-JFK one way) but never got confirmation email. Few days late priced dropped to 450$ so after calling Amex & vayama & both saying no record of first booking I booked again for 450$ few days later the first booking was processed.. Went back and forth with transveroe & vayama (booked thru kayak) where they said they would refund my original ticket & then they reneged. I finally spoke to supervisor (Yana) at NYC office of transveroe& she assured me they will issue refund but I should cancel the first booking even though it’s non-refundable so that it’s clear to the processors which booking to keep & which to cancel. A few days after I did that I spoke to her and she said the Moscow office is refusing to refund the first booking and that she recommends dispute thru cc company.

I’m in middle of the dispute with Amex but is there any other recourse? Would filling a complaint with the DOT help??

Booked family and they charged me in ruble, conversion was over $40 more than quoted price and I was charged $53 AmEx transaction fee!
Anything I can do without putting the tickets in jeopardy?

Sam

I have been trying to book these tickets the past couple of days but it always prices out to like $2,500 for 2 adults.

Does it drop when you by the final page?

The Citi Dividend Mastercard gives back 5% on airfare through the end of September if you are registered for the quarterly bonus categories.

Dan you wrote to Steve above, that he can make up the i.d#? I dont have my passports on me bec im at work, are you suggesting i make up passport numbers and expiration dates? Thats not going to matter later on? I could wait till i get home later and get the passports……

Dan

@yosef:
It won’t matter.

Dan

@chulent:
On the US site?
Do a chargeback for the difference.

yosef

ok, taking your word, thank you!!

yosef

It says “remote system has denied your payment” whats should I do?

j7

I booked tickets on Wednesday for about $3000 now I got a pending charge on my credit card for 99.70 from jeunesse global llc. What in the world is this?

j7

And I know that the extra 100 charge was connected cuz haven’t used that cc in a while. Dan do u know what this is all about? Anyone else got this?

Martin Ginsberg

On the website, it ways each ticket can bring 2 bags from JFK. On the return from TLV, only 20kg. Is there going to be a problem?

Yaakov

I’m repeating my Question, since i didn’t get an answer and this is really important for me to know, so whoever can give a reliable answer I’ll really appreciate it:

according to Transaero’s website you’re allowed 2 piece luggage only from / to USA but not on the connection flights (those are limited to 1 luggage – 20KG), does anyone know if you can take 2 suitcases also at the connecting flight to / from Israel?
otherwise the option of taking 2 suitcases is meaningless!
Thank you

@u: they book the credit card without an address so the cc company thinks it’s fraud. U need to call the cc company and ask them to put it thru and then it will work.

justme

if i dont cancel within 24 hrs, is there an option of cancelling for a fee? if yes for how much?

Yaakov

@Yaakov: does anybody know the answer?
please help.

Dave

@Yaakov: As per their call center,8777471191, as long as you check it straight through, 2 pieces are allowed.

Yaakov

@Dave: Thanks Dave for the info.

danthecan

@chulent: Same thing happened to me. I think I might have booked tickets on the transaero.ru/en website without realizing it. But I did get an email telling me the price in US dollars and the price charged to my credit card was $50 more. Any luck getting the price difference and foreign transaction fee back?

danthecan

@Dan: Dan, what is a chargeback? Is that a dispute? Will Transaero monkey around with the reservations as revenge? Thanks.

shlomi

Is this deal still available? I have been trying to book a flight, can someone explain to me how to book a flight?
