Is it safe to stop in amman jordan?
« on: September 26, 2015, 08:57:11 PM »
I pulled up an itinerary  that has a stop in Amman on the way to Israel - is it considered safe to stop there? (without leaving the airport and with an american passport)

I would do it again in the right situation.. Not my ideal choice only because there are so many options to get to Israel.. But no issue when I was there

Did you leave the airport?

Can't find the quote from AJK but pretty sure it goes like this:
"Since they stopped allowing RPG launchers in the airport it became safe to travel through"

it was chaikel
I've seen more arabs in TLV and EWR. And they no longer allow ppl to bring RPGs into the airport, so it's pretty safe ::)

I stand corrected.
BTW they may have changed their RPG policy since I was last there.

I'd have no problem connecting in AMM, though getting DW to agree would be another issue. Has anyone convinced their DW to connect there?

Have you heard even one incident that would make you think otherwise?
