This is exciting news for travelers to Israel but from a frequent flyer perspective, it will be interesting to see whether we will be able to redeem Qantas points for this route. Personally, I would like to see Alaska Airlines start opening up more opportunities for passengers from Australia to use mileage plan and this would be a great one. Thoughts?

This sounds great for a trip in a couple of years time.

When I was booking my flights to Europe, through Qantas site, there was more FFQ seats on El Al than any other airline. I would assume that due to the direct partnership agreement between El Al and Qantas, this direct flight will be eligible to be redeemed with Qantas points.
