The long New York-to-Tel Aviv run turned out to be a short run for Israir, the upstart Israeli air carrier. Two years, to be exact.

The carrier said the route was generating little profit in current economic conditions.

The financially strapped airline had filed for bankruptcy protection just two months ago.
