It's very likely.
When you say "it is presumably the best card for Israel", you mean only Israel or for any airline tickets ?

As in the rocks hitting your car may move you to leave the area
I am making an official protest about this הוצאת שם רע. While I will not deny that it has happened, I don't think it is common, since it is not permissible on Shabbos.

Just imagining the sight of a taxi driving down Meah Shearim on Shabbos being beaten by rocks, the passenger sticking his head out the window begging for his life:

On a more serious note, no way you're going to Israel without visiting the Wall...

DW loves to shop. She can spend all day at a mall. She also wants to float in the Dead Sea.
Open to any and all suggestions.

If she's looking for some different kinds of shopping experiences, she might want to try out Machne Yehuda, the marketplace in Jerusalem old city (Muslim quarter IINM), and IMHO some of the large chain supermarkets are just something different than the type of shopping one would experience in the US (though Bingo in Boro Park brought some of the latter to these shores).
