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.

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.

Different markets. MIATLV boosting to 4w later this year.

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.
