My kid was born in Jerusalem. You should have seen the excitement on their faces when they read her passport. They'd thought they'd met real life Palestinians. Same in Malaysia

btw, I am starting to see that flight availability from Israel is verrrry scarce!

They are indeed! From TLV with Star Alliance you can either stop in IST or SIN if you want just a 2-legs flight (and SIN is out of the question since it is an extra 10 hours travel time...) so it is basically IST and they have only one flight every 2 days!

Hence why you have to plan flights to these places before planning hotel stays.

Though as I learned that doesn't work too well either all the time :P

MLE is doable, especially because you can fly elswhere in Asia (CMB,BLR,BKK) and buy a cheap flight. PPT is very hard

Yes I saw that too but to get to BKK or CMB from TLV is the issue especially if you want to use SA or OW awards.

If Srilankan Airlines joins OW in 2013 as expected (and before my trip) then that would be great as I would even save on those $300... but still that is an 11 hours flight to BKK and then a 6 hours flight back to MLE... for a 4 days trip I don't think I can do that... The IST option is exactly 11 hours including connection (Agreed that it's not J but...)

But I mean, if there is no availability on SA, what other choice do I have...
