I wrote a couple of weeks ago about Delta adding a 2nd daily flight between JFK and Tel Aviv.

That flight is now available for sale for flights starting on 6/16/19.

The new afternoon flight from JFK departs at 3:45pm and arrives into Tel Aviv at 9:35am. The new morning flight from Tel Aviv departs at 11:35am and arrives into JFK at 4:50pm.

Delta now matches up closely with United’s 2 daily flights out of Newark and takes away a big advantage that United held over Delta thanks to the extra daily flight.

You can now book these flights for 43K Delta miles each way:

 

 

You can also book for just 29K miles each way with Air France Flying Blue miles. You can transfer points from AMEX, Barclays, Chase, Citi, or Marriott to Flying Blue. However availability is not as good as with Delta miles.

 

 

 

Flights are also bookable for 40K Virgin Atlantic miles each way and there is a 30% transfer bonus from AMEX or Citi. Plus Virgin Atlantic allows award holds for 72 hours. However you must call Virgin Atlantic to book award travel to Tel Aviv at 800-365-9500.

Do you prefer the afternoon or evening flight into Tel Aviv and the morning or evening flight back to JFK?

Dan, does Delta have a limited inventory for mileage tickets per flight ? Or as many tickets there are open there will be availability ?

Bostener

On the new flight you don’t have to daven Shachris on the flight to Israel.

Shmul

Landing at 9:35 then comes the whole entry experience and customs and bags … you are looking at 10-1030… most would have wanted to have davened already

Dav ?

No business class ?

Can’t I call air France to book over the phone if it’s not visible on there site but are on delta.com ?

Ari

Seriously, is flying blue’s points better / worse than dl?

Opinion

So does this mean that there will be more possibility availability on United on both United and Aeroplan on the TLV Route?

ruvi

newbie question
is there a simple way to see delta availability through flying blue
right now all i see are air france flights with stopovers and high fees

Sad

When I search Air France, all of the tickets have ~$90-130 fees

Off topic.
Dan, do you have a post about best ways to fly to South America?

Not necessarily off post. Delta to TLV as described here. Then the forthcoming LATAM flight TLV–GRU 🙂
