$589 with ukraine?


When searching on Chase.com, it also returns Aeroflot for $651. Which airline would you recommend?

Feb 12 – Feb 17


Going through Russia adds a few hours to the trip. It is not really on the way.


“Highly rated”, shmighly rated…
If you miss your flight’s check-in time by even one minute, you can kiss your thousands of bucks goodbye. Those Ottoman anti-semites won’t book you on another flight even on standby. No standard decency like on American carriers. They won’t refund you a penny, no matter what good excuse you can come up with and they won’t let you on the next flight even with a fee. It’s like you never had a ticket.
They’re cruel.

Good luck if you book with them and go to the airport EXTRA EXTRA early!


Had same issue with tap


Why must we refer to them as “Ottoman anti-semites”? Very immature


Because they are. הלכה היא בידוע…


Is it truly totally safe? everytime they’re mentioned in the news, it’s always in a bad way toward Americans & Jews.

If you are looking to fly through Europe, there are very few clean hands. Ukrainian collaborators aggressively assisted in the Holocaust and some Poles were more than happy to assist the Germans and take over their property (watch the documentary Shoah). Same with French Vichy collaborators who went above and beyond what the Germans asked in deporting Jews. Turkey did not “fight” in WWII and permitted its Jews to emigrate to Israel in the late 40s.


Make sure you have enough time to connect. The new airport is beautiful, but huge, and transiting from US flight to the TLV flight(s) isn’t smooth.

new yorker

How much time you say is needed for connection?

Aryeh Shulman

Return flights to Chicago are terrible, 25-30 hours unless you want to pay an extra $200


What do i do with my infant. Priceline says they dont support infants on international flights?..

new yorker

Is it worth paying $325 more to go direct with united? People who did both please give opinion, thanks.


I’ve flied myself and with a stopover.’When flying myself I think I would rather save the extra $325 and do the stopover.
However when flying with my children I would pay extra money to get there quicker with less time spent on the plane.

new yorker

If you used points to pay for the ticket would you also do the stopover?


I personally would because points=money.


Thanks Dan! I booked this flight. Do you know if there is generally a minyan on these flights? (Obviously you have no idea about my specific flight just asking in general is there usually at least a handful of religious ppl). Also is it safe to be dressed outwardly Jewish in the airport? Or better to wear a cap? Thanks


Usually There is a nice few Jews dressed Jewish


If you fly during peak jewish times, there should be plenty of yidden on your flight. No need to disguise . You will be fine .


People say that Turkish has a lot of cancellations on their TLV flight. Is that true?


Cant find anything under 63608 points for april 20-29 from jfk to tlv?

Somewhat related

Flying my family from EWR to TLV. United and Elal are the same price. Will be flying economy. Any advantage of one over the other?

Somewhat related


new yorker

Elal will have more jewish people onboard probably, interesting almost always united is more expensive


United >>>>>>> Elal .

Jacob Fried.

Hi Dan,
I’ve just tried booking with my chase reserve points jfk-tlv may 10-13 cheapest comes up Turkish for 54.7k points

Where did you find those 42.6k deal?

Scott stein

How about tlv to ny any deal there?


Do you need to pick up your baggage and check in again at the stopover??? And is 1.5 hours long enough?


What about Amex points for this deal?


i’snt kiev a more safe airport fo jews
