I was wondering if any of these aircrafts could make one of the following flights:

Tel Aviv - Sydney
Tel Aviv - Buenos Aires
Tel Aviv - Honululu

It can make it to the western coast of Australia. Perth is the largest airport in that region. It cannot make it to SYD, MEL etc.
I had a reply about LY 772's flying to Australia, remember?
I'll try to find the info about the other two (I doubt it can make it to HNL, though), that would take some time, cause I'm not on my home computer right now and I need my Favourites. Someone else will probably come up with an answer by then.
Hope it helps!

I think it can make HNL because it can make LAX.

HNL could only be done with a very light load (7517nm)...and thats not considering ETOPS restrictions. Buenos Aries can be flown (6607.38 nm) but not Sydney (7625nm). The range of the aircraft is about 7500nm

Actually, TLV-EZE would be about 13500 km (7300 nm) long. That is due to the fact that the direct path goes over the airspace of countries that would not allow an LY jet to fly over their territory.
According to Boeing's website, the 772ER's range is "between 11040 and 14260 km (5960 to 7700 nm)". It probably varies according to engine choice and the load of the aircraft. That means that a 772ER flying TLV-EZE will not be able to have its maximum load.
TLV-HNL is 13957 km (7536 nm) long, that complies with ETOPS 207 rules. That is stretching the 772ER's range to the limit. It would be able to carry even less payload than on TLV-EZE.
TLV-PER is 12221 km (6599 nm).
BTW, TLV-LAX is 12176 km (6575 nm) long, also complies with ETOPS 207.
