My flight was TLV-JFK
On the connection in Amman before boarding the flight at the gate, they emptied every single bag including my hatbox and teffilin.
It was just a hassle and they seem to be enjoying it.
Other than that, there were no issues whatsoever on the actual flights. They were very friendly.

The only "scary" part of AMM is going through security, once you get through there is nothing worrying.
I got a full inspection...even though I was just connecting from another RJ flight... They inspected everything, ncluding emptying my Tallis bag. Other than the hassle, that was the only issues I had.

No different than any other airline. For safety

Can the JB biz card be added to a regular Barclays login? I only was able to set up an account on but that site is very outdated and doesn't even allow autopay
One of the worst websites I've visited.
Outdated and confusing to use

If I wanted to status match from Wyndham to M-Life, which M-Life hotel (in Vegas) will I have the best chances?
Will one hotel give me better odds than another, as I'll probably only get one chance to try.
Any advice?

Even if different itenerary and different airline?

Booked two tickets
JFK-YYZ on Delta first
YYZ-TLV on KLM business

Baring no delays in my first flight… is this doable or am I taking too big of a risk?
I have a Delta flight from JFK to YYZ landing at 17:59.
I have to make a second flight (not a connecting flight – purchased separately) on KLM leaving 22:45 from the same Terminal (#3) going to TLV.
I have to collect my luggage by Delta, go through customs/immigration, then check back in on my second airline - KLM.
I do have Global Card – if that helps.
Is 4 hours between flights enough time or am I taking too big a risk?
How far is Delta arrivals from the KLM departures (check-in) in Terminal 3 of YYZ?

Any restaurant that would deliver to the airport?
Did you get any responses?

I'll going to be at the Hilton AMS airport for a few hours between flights and would love to order in some food.....

Can you share? I may also need to change an award ticket. Thanks

Loong story... ill try my best to keep it short

I had ordered from red heifer 4 shabbat meals (for 2 people) and like half of their reg menu for shabbat, i got confirmation... Thursday  they said they got the order and will deliver with hot plate. Comes Friday morning i call to see when they will come no answer i called about a million times emailed left msgs no answer.
My in laws are good friends with druk, so I tried them and they gave the owners # (who only speaks Hebrew) back and forth they Couldn't find my order, so he told me that he will send 2 shabbat meals and hot plate... half hour later i get the food and it looked like it went thru a war no challa no hot plate barely enough for 1/2 person to eat 1 meal which was good because the food was literally unedible...(rant rant rant...) so if haven't noticed i was fedup with red heifer.
Now on to ember grill,
Went 1st time moitzei shabbat they are officially open but they had some kind of event so the kitchen was pretty much closed for customers, they did offer us a few dishes which were really tasty fresh and good (we were the only ones in the restaurant was pretty cool) they could add some more wine tho...
Went again Sunday night ordered pretty much everything and it was all really good ( ill send pics and my favorites) being a crazy steak guy they had to make it twice for me, it was decent nothing to compare on what u get in US ( wasn't expecting that ).
Thanks for the detailed report

Went mid-February during the week, so not addressing Shabbos or winter vacation madness. Visited each restaurant once.

Red Heifer - was somewhere between good to great in terms of food, everything else was nice. Price was fair.

Ember - the food was a bit better than RH, and price was fair, but the service was an absolute disaster. Ignoring us, bringing wrong items, long wait, despite not being overly busy. It was bad enough that I regret going there.
