Nonstop Star Alliance Options
« on: June 11, 2012, 06:58:04 PM »
What are some of  the best options for a nonstop flight in BUSINESS or FIRST class on a Star Alliance carrier from LA to any European city and then on to TLV?

(Would like to avoid Germany, if possible)

2 Adults and one infant will be traveling.

Would appreciate any tips or suggestions!!

Thanks.

Anyone here ever flown Business or First on Turkish airways?

Are they good?

Is it safe for very Jewish looking people?

Thank you for the info.

Can you please elaborate though?

Is it good service? Do they offer Kosher meals? Is it typically all Arabs on board?

I went through Istanbul 5 weeks ago and I'm going again tonight. I wore hat but I was with a yarmulka wearer. Seemed regular, although I'm not gonna put on tefilin there, but that's my personal comfort,
 the lounge there is beautiful, I think staying in the airport should be 100% OK.  kosher meals are the regular kosher meal as on every plane. I flew comfort class, but I believe their business class is amazing
