What does that have to do with ORD not having a flight to TLV?
Not enough higher-yielding traffic, unlike SFO. United has that all to itself on SFO and now LY wants some of it back.
Still not understanding this. Because ORD has a lot of B6 connecting traffic at JFK to LY to TLV, they don’t need a direct flight from ORD?
That's basically the logic. For example, JetBlue routes a lot of traffic from Detroit on to Emirates' BOS-DXB flight but Detroit's probably not next in line for service from Emirates. With its recent adds, El Al seems to be going after leading cities for life sciences and high-tech, hence Boston and San Francisco.
