Interesting mix of airlines (El Al and Philippine Airlines) for travel between Israel and Australia (Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane), all in lie-flat seats but with some long layovers in Manila. The mileage earning is complex and some connections of just 80 minutes might be legal in DXB but could be hard with extra El Al security, still this seems to be significantly below other Israel-Australia fares on Swiss/Singapore or Emirates.

Mileage wise the El Al segments credit nicely to Alaska at at 125% EQMs and 200% RDMs or 3316 EQMs and 5304 RDMs. The Philippines Airline segments only credit to their own program Mabuhay Miles or All Nippon Airways Mileage Club at 125% RDMs of Distance so for Sydney (20440 miles), Melbourne (20514 miles) and Brisbane (19732 miles).

El Al Business Class Boeing 789

Philippine Airlines Business Class Airbus 330

Philippine Airlines Business Class Airbus 321
