    i’m no DL fan but they also fly JFK-TLV, albeit at the lowest capacity and frequency among EL AL, UA, and DL.

    Yes. A330’s are supposed to be 8 abreast and 18 inches wide in economy, not 9 and 17 inches.

    @askmrlee a year or so ago 9 a cross and 17″ would have had XL in a bad sit , however UA uses its 773 on the night flights to TLV 10 across and 17.1 So XL isnt out of line unfortunately. The unknown is the pitch most carriers into TLV is 31″ in reg Y

    OT 1 reason I moved my Asian trips away from UA is all too often its their 773 or 772(UA) where its 10 across and 17.1 Ouch, So even thou theres more pitch to E+ its still 10 across and 17.1 not for me

    If XL prices it right I can see them getting the biz as many folks would prefer the shorter trip via Paris (and maybe a stop over to boot) over Aeroflot or former USSR countrys carriers that adds needless hours to the trip, or Turkish for that matter.

    Correction; the 773 is 17″ just like XL, and Im positive UA charges alot more for its tkts

    Thanks for sharing this update, seems LCC on long haul is a viable alternative to the traditional offering. Regards, Alastair Majury
