But the airline is hoping to drum up business with a brief fare sale. The discount is impressive: Fly roundtrip flights to Israel from New York City or Los Angeles this September. Travelers can save up to $200 on certain nonstop flights. The L.A. Times Daily Travel & Deals blog found that sale fares "from LAX begin at $1,099 per person (including all taxes and fuel surcharges)" a savings of even more than $200.
It's first-come, first served, for this sale (which started this morning) and which lasts until Thursday, June 11 at Midnight ET.
You'll find the deal on on this special page on El Al's site.
