My wife and I are planning on going to EY in mid August.
Are there any issues with flying Turkish Airlines through Istanbul to TLV? I know that last year, after the whole flotilla situation, some prefered to stay off Turkish. Should there be anything about taking Turkish Air to EY that should concern me?

The reason I ask is because I am able to get a hold of tickets for Turkish Air that are 20% cheaper than Continental. Should I just take the Turkish Tickets?

Thanks!
I flew through turkey 4 times since the flotilla. Was great flight. One time even had wifi all the way from NYC -IST


I saw something in the news today about a woman from NYC got killed there this week. But I think the airport is more than okay

As Chaikel once said...

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 ::)

So if we've already booked tickets in April - would they be effected?  Or would tickets booked after March 1 be effected?

as a travel agent i hesitate to reccomend flying thru turkey
the link below from the israeli govt a warning to those flying abroad for yomtov  just reinforces my hesitations and should reinforce yours as well
your life is worth more then the few hundred dollars you save id think

No problem whatsoever.

To be safe, don't book tickets for 11 month in the future.

For now its all cool.

My brother traveled yesterday with a stop in IST with a yarmulke on.

No problem.

There is no danger in flying through Turkey. I recommend my clients to use Turkish as they often have low fares and their planes are new and comfortable. I have also flown through Turkey 4 times without incident. Their economy comfort product is also outstanding and affordable.

It is not an issue. Istanbul is a large western city rich in culture and history. It is not dangerous.
