An idea for you to fly ELAL

An idea for you to fly ELAL

  1. Daniel Seidenman

    Hey Ben

    there is a way to plan for you to fly with ELAL in business class to Europe and from Europe continue on KLM 787 to China (i know you wanted to fly to the USA).

    If i am correct, LY has upgrade options with CASH to First class (even with the purser). its similar to what you did with Xiamen Airlines. so if you take such a ticket with at least 1 segment with LY you could try to upgrade to first. if not so try business class which is basically the same.

    i can see LY operating 747 during AUG. so give it a try

    Option 1
    TLV-AMS: LY 747
    AMS-CTU CZ (OPERATED BY KL 787)
    CTU-AMS CZ (OPERATED BY KL 787)
    AMS-TLV LY 747

    the above will cost you USD 3216

    Option 2
    TLV-AMS: KL
    AMS-CTU CZ (OPERATED BY KL 787)
    CTU-AMS CZ (OPERATED BY KL 787)
    AMS-TLV LY 747

    the above will cost you USD 2389

    Option 3 (this option will mean you dont fly ELAL but fly alot of KL product and can get many miles)
    TLV-AMS: KL
    AMS-CTU CZ (OPERATED BY KL 787)
    CTU-AMS CZ (OPERATED BY KL 787)
    AMS-TLV KL

    the above will cost you USD 1561

    all these tickets are under China Southern ticket stock. so
