I know many people who use Royal Jordanian – even citizens of the state of Israel are welcome on board. I flew Emirates myself and even walked around Dubai – I intend to do it again if the need arises.January 30, 2013 4:02 am at 4:02 am #925308

Ask your local Jewish travel agency.January 30, 2013 4:53 am at 4:53 am #925311em0616Member
Many Israelis are known to fly Royal Jordanian, as they offer cheaper flights to south-east Asia, where as El Al is very expensive, and takes longer flights paths, as to avoid flying over hostile countries.
Flying Royal Jordanian might feel awkward, as it mostly serves passengers transiting to various
Arab countries. I hear the terminal there is also quite shabby, although a brand new terminal is
supposed to open up very shortly.
Amman is a stones throw from Jerusalem, and Palestinians who do not hold Israeli passports, are prohibited from flying out from Ben Gurion and fly out from Amman instead.January 30, 2013 8:38 pm at 8:38 pm #925312midwesternerParticipant
And the Palestinians know the most about stones throwing!!January 30, 2013 8:39 pm at 8:39 pm #925313abcd2Participant
With so many airline choices why would you a)want to put yourself at possible risk over 100 dollars
b)While we don’t have much of a choice when it comes to filling up our cars and possibly other areas of commerce,why would you want to unnecessarily support sonei Yisrael?January 30, 2013 9:09 pm at 9:09 pm #925314dontbeagolemMember

for a few dollars even the jordanians become kosher
same jordenians that looted har hazetim and used the matzeivos for a urinal floor !!January 30, 2013 9:35 pm at 9:35 pm #925315
And the Europeans/Christians who destroyed the Beis Hamikdash and killed 6 million Jews in the holocaust, with 2000 years of crusades and pograms in between, their products ARE kosher?January 30, 2013 10:12 pm at 10:12 pm #925316snowbunny3318Member
The Chicago White Sox were anti-Semitic at one point, yet a number of frum organizations in Chicago gave away/ had events involving White Sox games? – I am personally a Cubs / Yankees fan.January 31, 2013 12:56 am at 12:56 am #925317abcd2Participant
Litvish kiryas..to answer your question I could never bring myself to fly Lufthansa or buy German products. And if having a choice I avoid products from poland france ukraine russia etc.. Many major German companies are around today solely because of the slave labor they used to get through the war years whether you are talking about mercedes or puma some of these factories actually had killing grounds on premise.
Additionally, except for Kevarim,many Rabbonim (Rabbi Reisman very recently)speak out against visiting Europe for pleasure.(they also many times will suggest spending the same amount of time and money in Eretz Yisroel)
Aside from possible Sakanos nifashos and difficulties that could ensue by flying with a bunch of Jew haters,if given a choice of where to spend money why directly support the jordanian government and antisemites?The op obviously had his/her reservations as people don’t post about flying on delta or virgin atlantic
Snowbunny- Jerry Reinsdorf is openly proud about the fact that he is a Jew and has owned the bulls and whitesox for at least 20 -30 years. He also gives heavily to Jewish causes across the spectrum what antisemitism are you talking about? If you are talking about racist comments by some players a few years ago, it really does not have a reflection on the organization.January 31, 2013 1:55 am at 1:55 am #925318Charles ShortMember

Is there anything an American Jew touring Arab countries with a U.S. Passport needs to be aware of or act differently than any other American touring there?January 31, 2013 4:21 am at 4:21 am #925320OneOfManyParticipant
