New York to Tel Aviv for $400 round-trip?

A great airfare surfaced on the Israeli airline El Al and consumers started to snap up tickets between New York (JFK) and Tel Aviv (TLV) for between $330 to $460 round-trip, including all taxes and fees. Some of the tickets savvy travelers gobbled up included stopovers in Europe.

Were these promotional air fares or were they “error fares”?

Typically, round-trip air transportation between New York (JFK) and Tel Aviv (TLV) normally starts at about $1,000.

Air fare or error fare?

El Al has confirmed the fares were the result of a mistake made by a 3rd party, but provided few details. According to consumers who have contacted FlyersPulse, some have been told the fare would be honored only to be told it is on decision 24 hours later.

If one thing is certain, numerous travelers are uncertain about the future of their airline ticket.

Will the El Al Fare between New York and Tel Aviv be honored?

In light of recent “error fares” earlier this year, such as tickets on Korean Air between the United States and Palau, which were not honored, The United States Department of Transportation (DOT) adopted new rules prohibiting air carriers from increasing a fare once purchased.

Just recently, United Airlines had a glitch selling frequent flyer tickets to Hong Kong for as little as four miles + taxes. United Airlines did not honor this, aside from those who already had started travel.

According to a number of sources, El Al sold nearly 5,000 tickets between $300 and $400.

It’s been said El Al will make a decision this week as to whether they will honor the fares. We have reached out to El Al, but have yet to receive a response.
