From Chicago O'Hare, LY 27 will operate twice a week on Mondays and Wednesdays. It will depart Tel Aviv at 0001, arriving in Newark at 0520. It will then depart Newark at 0710 and arrive in O'Hare at 0900*. It will turnaround as LY 28 back to Newark at 1030, arriving in Newark at 1340. On the ground for only one hour, the flight leaves at 1440 and gets into Tel Aviv at 0805 the next day.
*Seems to be a little mix-up in the schedule. It is scheduling the EWR-ORD/ORD-EWR legs as if they were EWR-MIA/MIA-EWR legs.
From Miami, there will be two schedules. LY 27 will operate on Sundays, leaving Tel Aviv at 0001, into Newark at 0520. Departs for MIA at 0710 and arrives at 1000. The return, LY 28, leaves MIA at 1130, into Newark at 1420, on the ground for an hour until 1520, and then off for an 0840 arrival in Tel Aviv the next day.
Tuesday flights will operate as LY 1 leaving Tel Aviv at 0100, into JFK at 0605, leaves JFK at 0805, into MIA at 1055. The jet will then sit at MIA until 1905, when LY 8 leaves for JFK at 2155, and leaving for Tel Aviv at 2355 with an arrival the next day at 1715.
All flights will be 777-200s.
O'Hare and Miami spotters, how nice it will be to see El Al back on a regular basis!
