  • Royal Jordanian has multiple flight per day from Amman to Tel Aviv and yes, it is safe for Frum Jews to fly on them.
  • 2 free checked bags are included with this fare.
  • You can originate in the USA or Israel with this fare.
  • This R class fare earns 50% of the flown miles when credited to Iberia Avios. (5,806 miles earned from JFK, 6,304 from Chicago).

I spent Pesach last year at the amazing Pesach on the Mountain program in Whistler with comedian Avi Liberman and told him about Etihad’s apartment first (shower) class. He flew to Amman without buying a connecting flight from Amman to Tel Aviv and still managed to survive 😀

What’s the average stop over times for these flights?

Jack out of the box

From NY they have very good connection times.


Wouldn’t it be faster to just follow the link and check for yourself?


Actually would if I had good internet connection but to search for flights where I’m currently located now would take 10 minutes, in a basement of a building at this moment.


There are plenty of Norwegian flights through out the winter from JFK for $550 range


Are these upgradeable with AA? Saw them booking in RJ “R” class. Does that even make sense?


R class doesn’t “mean” up-gradable, Some airlines use R class as the upgrade class, some use it as a regular class, and some as premium economy (Ex: LOT POLISH)


how many suitcases per person?


So totally safe ?? For a family to fly ?


I did it last summer with ages 5, 4 and 1.


JFK – TLV is a 7hr 40 min stopover


I’m looking at Sep 16 only has 7hr 40 min available


if i book 3 tickets but only want to cancel one , can i?


Thanks just booked tickets for Chanukkah!!


It’s Nauseating,you have to advertise these Anti semites!


Dan aint advertising for them, he is simply giving people who normally cannot afford an Israel trip an opportunity to go!


That’s such BS!


Last week many were calling ElAl anti chareidim. Now you are calling this airline antisemetic. Pick one already please!


is it safe to stay overnight?


You need a visa..


How long do you have to cancel and get money back once ticket is purchased?


Is Royal Jordanian safe for Yidden?


I just booked 4 seats. Price went up to $688!!


So Avi Lieberman gets to hear your Etihad trip report but you leave the rest of us hanging? 😉


It’s advertising $558 but then it changes to $688


oh man too late. the dates i see on ita for $560 already went up to 800.

Rephael Chaim Simcha

ya but maybe with points it could come to a better rate you know what im saying


Avi Lieberman really did that he took a taxi to the border, can he write a detailed trip report


think its dead. Do you think if shabbos ends at 7:00pm that you can make a 9:40pm flight sat night?


How accommodating is RJ to men who prefer not to be seated next to women? Is RJ a good replacement for El Al, which recently announced that chareidi passengers are not wanted?

A Kellps

Since when is it not allowed to sit next to a woman?


Carry one of those full body covers as emergency equipment


Chareidi men are welcome on ElAl. If you act stubborn, selfish, and a chillul Hashem then RJ won’t be the airline for you either


With a shawl and a burka- I don’t think it makes such a difference anymore.


Can you still use AA miles to book RJ?

Touring Jordan?

Anybody know if Jordan is safe to explore as a tourist? For Jews?



could it be booked with chase UR points? thanks


where is the best program to credit these miles to? if you fly economy on this type of fare that there offering ?


Does anyone know (@dan or someone else)if it is safe to do a seven hour stopver there, or just 90 min is fine?


Flying BA
Best place to credit?
Abd if BA, do UK or Spain? Will have tot of 5500 st s time
Maybe will fly twice
Where best ti crefit pls?


Last year i did RJ with 2 Daughters (16 & 17) was very happy, will do it again, they use dreamliners, they arent hostile, U can daven in airport, and u can wear a Chasidishe Levush. Not crowded.


Be VERY careful to keep your boarding passes. RJ is NOTORIOUS for not crediting the jfk-amman flights! Look it up on Google. I took them to tlv in Feb and it was a multi month misery to finally have AA manually credit after RJ never did, and ignored requests.


make sure to check the KASHRUS of the food
the meal was not Glatt


He’s actually very funny!


They really use Dreamliners? What’s pshat?

booked on sukkos

i booked by mistake returing on oct 2 whcih is sukkos.
any way to switch??


24 hours to cancel- do it now!


I prefer other חברים on my flights


Can you fly into Jordan with an Israeli passport?


is justfly a normal site to book?


what about flighthub


is this still active?


is flight hub a reliable site

Jerusalem on the mind

Is there an additional charge to reserve seats?


i want to stay in Amman over night to catch a connecting Etihad Flight From Abu Dhabi. Any ideas where to stay safely for those few hours?


Eli Rosengarten

Seems like these are available for $560 for sukkos. October 6 from JFK returning Thursday October 24th
