The first Westbound TLV-KEF is in the books.

3,375 mi = 2932nm
What I find odd is that it only too 6h39m, while tomorrow's flight is planned for 7h45m.

Perhaps unsurprising. Israel is a very different market to Western Europe. I'm not sure that the majority of people travelling to and from Israel are the same target demographic as the majority of 'WOW' passengers (i.e. young backpackers, looking for a bargain basement flight with no regard for comfort or on board service). Full service carriers like United and Delta have established themselves well in the Israel-US market, but even with the Icelandic stopover, it is a long way to go without full on board service.


KLDC10, you are absolutely right. However, there is another segment of the market that will eventually fill more seats on WOW's flights to TLV, though it is more likely that this will happen beginning next Spring. The segment of which I write will be made up of tour groups, people who will be very thankful for affordable transportation to & from the Holy Land.

KEF-TLV: 04NOV - 27MAR

A321neo => A320neo

The reason are very simple: Very low yields (a big amount of cheap tickets on USA->TLV v.v. for 139,99 USD or 149,99 Oneway plus Baggage-fees) as well as low loads (70-75 Percent) on this route.
