I can tell you from experience that many security agents around the world dont know what tefillen is and sometimes take them out and ask about them
I dont want to tell you how to raise your children, but IMHO running to accusations of anti antisemitism isn't wise
In ZRH I had an agent stop us and ask if they were "the urim v'tumim". No clue how someone knows of that, but not tfillin...
Memories last forever, make them while you can.

Just had a very pleasant flight ORD-AMM seat 1A (1C was empty so that was nice)
No issues at immigration (I wanted the stamp)  or at security.
Sitting in the Crown Lounge now awaiting flight to TLV.

How did their business class compare to others youíve flown. Iíve seen availability on that route a lot. I actually booked Ord-TLV on Turkish instead because I though it would be better.

TK is definitely better than RJ in that there are by far more TK flights both to the US and to TLV. I once booked an RJ ticket on a BF sale, and had to give it up as changes would cost more than a new ticket, and even that would involve going via ORD from/to NY, as they alternate between AMM-JFK and AMM-ORD flights depending on the day of week (just like they alternate between AMM-HKG and AMM-KUL, though both stop in BKK).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

What are their load factors to TLV (or from TLV) I would've assumed they used a small plane but its a nice size jet for this short route...

+1
I only booked it because I'm  sitting on a bunch of worthless AA mes.
First off it's 6 across a 789. Although they are staggered a bit for privacy, other carriers only have 4 or 5 across.
I sat in 1a and had 1c empty so no privacy issues for me.
Row 1 foot wells are considerably larger and have more space in general.
That said , seat was very comfy, a  bit tight fit sleeping but I did sleep about 7 hours.
I davened with my tallis and tefillin and had no issues.
Meals were from Emunah and nothing to write home about....

I've seen anything from an E190 (IINM) to a 787 on that route.

TK definitely better overall.
I was the Best,still the Best, and will always be the Best.

Once you fix it, you need to take off my "IINM" qualifier, as presumably, you fixed it with a level of certainty.

They operate 3 flights a day...one with the E190 and the rest with the bigger planes.
