First of all Thank you very much to the DDFers that helped me out planning this trip.
And especially to the one who was supposed to come  8)

This trip started out 4am motzai tisha bav on an hour of sleep heading to TLV.
We made a pit stop in RBS to pick some beef jerky that got sent in from USA.
After getting interrogated by israeli security "so your going to jordan for the day and then dubai for one day and then Hong Kong for only a day and then Phillipines..." we stopped in a glorified sitting area called the Dan Lounge.

Prob the best you can do with 30k AA-that's 22CPP!

Good luck! It's not that complicated. The arduous part is choosing the pictures.

I had read online that you can get a 24 hour transit visa for free but when we got there they insisted on charges us $57 for a visa.
Maybe I should Dispute?
Our first stop was the Royal car museum. Apparently king Hussein became king at 18 and was a crazy car fanatic.

There was one other group of ppl there.
Tourism barely exists in amman.
Our next stop was the citadel. It's an overlook on the whole city with some roman ruins.
After that we went to the rainbow street area. We shopped for some souviners and looked at some giant hookas.
We went to a souk there that reminded me of machane Yehuda except all the screaming was in Arabic.
After buying some fruits we were off to the airport. They have a decent size lounge in AMM. And we were off to Dubai. More coming soon....

+1. Kind of sounds like a call to prayer, just rougher.

I know this is a real noob question but how does one book a ticket like that... Can that be done online just using a multi city function ? Do you need to call ? Only 30k AA miles ?
