Airfare to Israel

There are 4 of us and we are looking for REALLY cheap airfare from CMH (willing to travel to Chicago, Toronto, PHL, etc.) to Israel. We don't need hotels, rental car, etc. as our cousin in Israel is tour guide and she will make all our in-Israel arrangements. However, she doesn't do air travel. Please advise on web sites or charters for REALLY cheap airfare. We would like to go in June for 2-3 weeks. thanks!

I'm walking in your shoes too, looking for San-Francisco - Tel Aviv. Sigh...

Aliska, were you able to find the airfare?

Usually on Wednesdays (early am) the price goes down, I made my reservations today for a bit less then a week ago.

Make sure you're checking each Wednesday very early (or stay up late on Tuesday)

One thing I would caution you about is flying Israir. We just flew with them to and from Tel Aviv and it was the most uncomfortable long flight of my life. The seats are so close that the bottom of the tray touches your knees.
I couldn't even pick up my purse from the floor without pulling on it to fit it through the tight space.

As the plane settled down at Ben Gurion airport, the voice of the Captain came on:

"Please remain seated with your seatbelt fastened until this plane is at a complete standstill and the seat belt signs have been turned off."

Few minutes later:

"To those of you standing in the aisles, we wish you a Happy Chanukah."

"To those who have remained in their seats, we wish you a Merry Christmas."

Note that Delta Air Lines will be starting a new flight from Atlanta to Tel Aviv coming in March. Might want to check with them as sometimes the airlines offer specials on new routes.
