what does it mean

It means what it says, that kosher food option is really for passengers only flying British Airways and not elsewhere.

Thanks for sharing!

I tried to surprise my wife with a trip to TLV lounge etc. not even to fly. I could not get info how to get past security. I tried Amex Concierge but they were worthless. I did not want to buy refundable tix. Any ideas?

Keep up the good times!

how on earth would amex concierge be able to help you? you dont want refundable tickets, neither to fly, just a visit to an airport gate/terminal? hey and buy me some duty free stuff to whilst your at it, not gonna work
and the Dan lounge would be more of a dissapointment than a suprise.

How would you play that out with passport control also.. Then customs to come back in again, I'm confused?

And all that, for what?...

Love me or hate me. I still love you.

I assume that there is some security pass to get through, like in JFK with UA (?)

Amex could have tried to look into it. I do not know. What do you want me to buy you in duty free?  ??? (flying in a week) I've been to the lounge so I know what you mean, depends on what time. I thought it would be nice to walk around. If no one here has info how to get in and I find out, I'll try to update. I was there today but did not have time. I think it is possible.

The Elal lounge is quite nice.

  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Thanks JJ, I understand. I assume they must have a security/press pass option, like employee passes. I will try to check it out next week if I have enough time there.

If I tried that my wife would have heart failure. & she would be upset about all the little things she didn't know to bring along.

I was referring to the 2nd part. The 1st part was interesting and humorous but my wife would not appreciate it.

2nd part would be fine minus family popping out of nowhere.
