Business class tickets will be 1,750 Matmid points one-way or 3,500 Matmid points round-trip. That’s equal to 87.5K AMEX points each way. Business travel normally costs 2K Matmid points each way (100K AMEX).

Travel is valid orignating in Boston or Tel Aviv.

Fuel surcharges and taxes add $160 for the BOS-TLV segment and $194 for the TLV-BOS segment.

fuel surcharges is a deal killer with El-AL

Avi

No big deal, 40k amex is worth about $600 plus $354 fuel surcharge tack on $100 to get to Boston and you’re paying $1,054 to fly to Israel in the winter with a stop.

So…Just to clarify before I transfer the point…If I transfer 7000 SPG AmEx points to El Al today then tomorrow I will be able to book to business class tickets from Boston and TLV for just the 7000 points? My only hesitation in transferring the points is if availability is gone by the time I get executive status tomorrow. Do you think that might be an issue? Is there any way to reserve the flights today and book tomorrow? We are traveling between 11/6-11/18

Thanks.

True.

@Avi:
Except you can fly back after Pesach or in the summer with this deal.
And some people actually live in BOS 😉

@Brandon Burchett:
SPG points don’t transfer to El Al.
