LOT or Air Canada?

Hello. I am flying from the East Coast to Israel this summer, and the tickets for LOT and Air Canada are about the same price. I am leaning towards Air Canada because it's only $100 more for 1-stop instead of 2 on LOT. I've never flown either but will use LOT if AC's service is really bad or LOT's is phenomenal (enough to warrant an extra stop). Any input is appreciated!

AC without question

LOT is ok/good but not worth the extra stop.

btw, can you give us the routing for each?

I'm curious as to how you got 1 connection with AC and 2 connections with LOT from the east coast?

AC flies nonstop YYZ-TLV. LOT would be (e.g.) XXX-EWR-WAW-TLV or XXX-FRA-WAW-TLV, etc. - probably on a codeshare as far as WAW.

I agree with AAFF. The return flight will have a nice feature in the new wing of T1 at Toronto. You will get off the plane from TLV and, without clearing Canadian customs/immigration, clear US customs/immigration and then arrive in the US as if you were on a domestic flight. The US customs/immigration officers are never busy when I go by them after getting off an inernational flight in Toronto. That, and saving a connection is well worth $100 to me.

I have never flown with LOT but do fly AC regularly and think you find the experience to be quite acceptable.

Thanks for all the info. I will definitely go AC.

The AC flight is from Cleveland to Toronto to TLV. POL is from Cleveland to JFK to Poland (forgot the city) then TLV.

Another vote for the AC flight.

YYZ is much easier airport to transit than JFK and the US immigration is much speedier in YYZ, too.
