I mistook the S19 for $19. Thought for a moment is was a fare error.

Some Google Translate work:


The additional daily flight departing from Tel Aviv will be a daily flight so that you will complete the current daily flight that takes off at night and will provide additional choice for the company's customers - whether to make a day or night flight. The new flight leaves Tel Aviv at 11:35 and lands at 16:50 in New York. The company said that in light of Delta's increased activity in Israel, more than 4,000 seats will be added each week on flights on the Tel Aviv-New York, New York-Tel Aviv route.


Both flights operate on an A330-300 aircraft with a capacity of 293 seats.


The flight starts 6/17/19.

UA has shown there's plenty of demand with a U.S. carrier out of NYC.

For the love of God at least bring TLV to ATL back seasonally. So many tourist from the Southeast go to Jerusalem.

I miss seeing the 747 at JFK on it's way to TLV. But this is a nice alternative!

Are they originating (in numbers) from cities that don't already have Delta non-stops xxx-JFK? I doubt it.

Smart move.

I would love to see DL's A350 in TLV but guess they have other missions for the 350s. The completion on NYC-TLV route is heating up with UA Polaris and LY new 787s, so the new Delta One suites could help. Does DL plan to fit the suites on A333s?

With EWR-TLV twice daily, makes a lot of sense for DL to offer twice daily from JFK. With JFK being a stones throw away from heavy Jewish populations on Long Island and in Brooklyn this is a great move.

In addition to this, LAX-CDG and LAX-AMS go daily. The DL EWR-CDG rotation has been moved to JFK, and PIT-CDG has been canceled.
