Hi All,

I was thinking...

Now that Jet Blue and Aer Lingus are working together, perhaps El Al should consider a similar arrangement. Here's why:

- Most of LY's NYC flights are in and out of JFK, B6's ever-expanding hub.
- B6 has many early morning flights that could be well fed by LY's red-eyes from TLV.
- B6 serves Chicago, which LY is leaving, as well as many Florida airports, SFO/OAK, PHX, BOS, and WAS - all of which have populations that travel to and from Israel regularly.

Thoughts, anyone?

Yes, Delta would be pretty p!ssed off, considering that they enjoy an active codeshare with LY  Wink .

LY has no serious reason to code-share with EI as there is no big demand between Israel and Ireland.
As for the potentials with B6, it could work as LY could be bringing feeding traffic to JFK and pax would have a seemless travel anywhere they wanted to in the US with B6. However, as DAL767400 said DL would not be happy with such a move by LY due to their current codeshare agreement.

I d really like to see LY moving to one of the three big alliances though.  Smile

I see B6 making deals with smaller/less established airlines like VV or TA at JFK or ET at IAD, but historically bigger international careers have preferred majors rather than low costs.

HUH?? Are you serious? I don't disagree on the latter part, but B6 doing deals with Taca and Ethiopian? Like why would that work?

They don't have any deal right now, but I could see ET passengers getting the option to continue on to Floriada and California, BOS and JFK on B6 and not on UA, as well as TA offering onward (mostly short-haul) connections via JFK, BOS and IAD.

I could see El Al working but that would get Delta pretty mad. If they weren't involved with DL it would a be nice match, but for now, nope. Sounds good though.

This is an excellent thought! It would be a win-win situation for both B6 and LY. Such a move would help facilitate the ever important and increasing need to further solidify US-Israeli relations at every juncture.

I wouldn't call it a win-win. A DL-LY linkup gives LY a lot more options than a DL-B6 linkup - not only do they get access to ATL as well via the DL-LY codeshare, but also a lot more options for domestic connections; a vast amount of connections on B6 at JFK are also available on DL at JFK; for the other ones, ATL is always an option. End of the day, more destinations, more access to more passengers and more non-stops between TLV and the States are available with DL than with B6.

They did have one, but IIRC, that was dropped when the codesharing started. From what I remember, as the time LY and NAA cooperated, NAA was still operating 2 MD-83s which were later replaced by 738s, alongside one 757. Flights from JFK were timed to connect to an from LY's TLV flights, going to ORD, MIA and LAX.
