Award Availability Alert: SFO-TLV in Business on United (Polaris)
If you are looking to fly at the pointy end of the plane to Tel Aviv from the US, there are plenty of seats on the SFO-TLV route in Polaris (Business) Class. It’s 2 x 2 x 2 seating (not the awful 2 x 4 x 2 configuration on some United planes) so this is really a great way to get to TLV. The availability really kicks off in July 2018.
The cost is 75k miles each way. If you aren’t going from SFO, a connection is included, provided there is saver availability from your home city.
Total cost is 150,000 miles round trip and $49.02 in taxes and fees (slightly more if you connect to SFO).
Remember that your Chase Ultimate Rewards points transfer instantly to United.
