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.

Well it looks like these flights probably won't happen now, but El Al is flying to Perth today (for a one-off repatriation flight).

Wow, seriously? How did my mum's travel agent not know about this. She is flying back to PER from TLV today. Having to go LY to CDG and then QR via DOH to PER.
