$599 On LY, TLV-NY And $617 On Delta - Crazy Times

Tue Jan 27, 2009 5:51 pm

A year ago the cheapest flight to NY from TLV was over $1000 on LY, DL and CO.
Now because of lowered pax traffic and the low oil prices, there are HUGE deals on the lucrative TLV - NYC nonstop route.

Delta's new published fare is $617 for travel by the end of March and ,ust be purchased by the end of the week.

On LY the published fare is $749 , but its possible to book on the website some flights at $599.

On CO , TLV - EWR is $727.

In the meantime no special C/J class fares. Does that mean Business class is always still full?

This is going to be an interesting summer. I just booked SVO-JFK for $600 all-in round trip. I don't remember the last time I flew Moscow to New York for less than $1000 in taxes during the summer.

What now?

Very good year for international fares. Unfortunately, Europe is still quite expensive (at least from SEA), but I have noticed SEA-SYD for about $815 r/t, and SEA-SGN/BKK/HAN continues to hover in the $900 r/t range.

Wish I had time to take advantage of all these...

I was wondering that since JFK-TLV has a huge O&D market why havent DL put 2 of NW's B 744s to fly daily JFK-TLV nonstop rather than a B 772ER.

Surely a B 744 isnt needed for daily ATL-NRT nonstop !!!
