American Airlines is putting Israel back on its destination map with non-stop daily service to Tel Aviv from its hub at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport starting September 9.

The Fort Worth-based carrier discontinued service to Tel Aviv in 2016 although that route was from Philadelphia, and had been inherited from US Airways in the merger.

The airline will operate the flights using Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft.  American’s 787-9 Dreamliners have 30 seats in the Flagship Business business-class cabin.  Each seat has a width of 21” and extends into a 77” bed.  The aircraft also has 21 seats in the premium-economy cabin, which offers recliner seats that are 19” wide and have 38” of seat pitch. There are 36 seats in the premium-economy lite section and 198 in coach.

American originally announced the Tel Aviv flights in August as a thrice-weekly service. Tickets went on sale in October
