Consolidators for Tickets to Israel?

Hi, does anyone know which consolidators are the best? I'm thinking of flying to Tel Aviv.

I live in NYC.

Thanks.

Buy a copy of the Village Voice or open the NYC Yellow Pages - lots of consolidators. However, El Al often has competitive prices, depending on when you're traveling.

Check www.kayak.com to search for carriers who fly the route, non-stop preferably. You'll get an idea of prices for your time of travel so you can compare with consolidators.

Hi, I've been Kayak for Memorial Day weekend. So far cheapest is Continental for $1751 -- leave Friday and back Monday (but flight arrives Tuesday early morning). Seems way too high for Israel.

El Al may not work because I don't think it has flights that leave NYC Fridays.

Lots going against you to find a "deal".
- holiday weekend
- weekend, which has surcharges
- short stay

Check the Village Voice for consolidators.

Thanks. I'll check it later in the evening. I can't access personal e-mail from work. Ah, the tyrannies of a day job.

I didn't go to Tel Aviv, by the way (to keep this somewhat on topic), but I flew to London for Memorial Day. The weather sucked. It rained a lot and it was cold. Since I bought my ticket so late the only reasonable ticket I could find was on Air India, which I survived. The flights were delayed both ways but otherwise not as bad as I had feared.
