Searching via Skyscanner.com reveals that Trip.com will book New York JFK to Israel for less than $300 roundtrip in May and June. Hat tip to Secret Flying who sees $277 roundtrips on Air Serbia via Belgrade, here’s a $293 itinerary:
At this price tickets are non-refundable and change fees are greater than the cost of the fare. That means no changes. Since Air Serbia doesn’t do basic economy the fare includes a checked bag, and inflight service includes choice of hot meal and free drinks.
Secret Flying warns that this price is so low (compares to over $800 on other airlines) that i could be a mistake. I disagree, it looks like a deep discount sale to me. However the airline could get seller’s remorse so it’s a good idea to wait several days before making plans around these tickets.
