El Al mulls Tel Aviv - Florida (MCO) flights

The article says it all. I'm sure if it was added the flight would be 2x weekly and seasonal at most. I assume some hefty incentives would be included as well.
Huge fan of Tampa International Airport

Wouldn't this cannibalize their TLV-MIA flight?

That one's only flown 3x weekly.

Maybe it would supplement their MIA service.

Two completely separate markets for them, more like a comparison of JFK and PHL or JFK and BOS when comparing distance between markets

I doubt it would be more than once a week. Same strategy to their new LAS service, fly in on Friday, leave Saturday night, use the same crew, sell vacation packages to Israelis.

A lot of international tourists combine Orlando / Central Florida (Disneyworld / Kennedy Space Center) + Miami / South Florida / Keys. So providing the flexibility of using MCO + MIA should work fine for them.
