Negative.
I was going to go to Eilat, crossover to AQJ, and then fly AQJ-AMM-JFK.
I am however thinking of flying from TLV as I do not have AA miles.

No problem.

I actually once booked TLV-AMM on RJ, AMM-FRA-EWR on LH F, but then TLV-FRA became available last minute, so I changed it to TLV-FRA-EWR.

FYI. Taxes and YQ are higher ex-AMM than ex-TLV.

Can any recommend the best way to travel from AMM to Petra, leaving around 2 AM on a Friday morning, and then Petra to Aqaba several hours later?

Even if you can't recommend a driver or car service etc., do you have any idea how much a cab from AMM to Petra would cost at 2 AM? (That part of the trip is more important, as I assume it will be harder to get and a lot more expensive, than the Petra to Aqaba part, as the Aqaba segment is shorter and will be in the middle of the day.)

Headed to AMM now- two issues
1) they refused to gate check out stroller saying the Amman airport doesn't have the ability to - is this really true? Don't know what we're going to do in AMM without out stroller and car seat (which snaps into the stroller)
2) I know people have had issues with EY and boarding passes- they refused/weren't able to print out EY passes in TLV and we couldn't print them online. We have a 6 hr layover in Jordan- anyone know a way of getting around getting stuck in customs?

1) beg them to let you take it onboard, that flight is usually empty with plenty of room.
2)they can technically get you into the lounge if you give up your passport where you wait until the EY desk opens for them.

1) crap- should have thought of that- probably would have fit but they already took it under- they said perhaps it would be waiting on AUH- yeah right...

2) I'll try but even so I figure I'll probably lose an hour arguing - uch

DDF travel ain't for the faint of heart

Too late for you now but I did it the day before. I tried taking it on board and they refused but in AMM the manager at the transfer desk got it for me and gave us a transfer pass so we could go to the lounge and told me to come back at 11:30 to get the the EY boarding passes. When I came at 11:30 he said he will send someone to the lounge to organise the boarding passes. The guy came later took our passports and disappeared for over an hour and then brought the boarding passes. It all worked out all well - the lounge was roomy and empty.

Same thing happened / transfer slips- some guy disappears with your passports, you know...

No luck wth the stroller- was an absolute nightmare and that's in the tiny AMM airport...need to switch to a Doona or convertible with a dolly

In contrast AUH with the strollers has been a dream... Gotta run for my lounge massage

As I wrote in my TR, the Doona was by far the best travel purchase I have ever made. An absolute lifesaver and worth every last penny.
