If you are Israeli I would be very careful in Turkey. Russia level or more. If they have any excuse they can turn you into an international incident.
Of course if you don't leave the airport it's better but I would still be nervous.
There are literally thousands of Israelis traveling through IST every day.

If you book United metal with Turkish miles and use United Mileage explorer card to pay taxes I am assuming you get the free luggage benefit?

also can citi points be transferred to another person's Turkish miles account?

dont book cash tickets to israel until you know you can get in

only elal where you can get voucher easily. or maybe american booked directly through aa, you can switch to cheaper flight and get voucher, united there is also workaround to get full cash refund if booked directly through them but more complicated. delto imk is hardest to get anything but trip credit for yourself

What is the most hassle-free way to cancel an award ticket that can't be cancelled online?

Call center is unable to process the $25 cancelation fee over a month now, in person ticket office is not really an option.  Are there any known good ticket office emails or numbers to try?

managed to cancel / refund by phone, took around 7 huca

Yes

you entered your Mileage number at the time of booking or afterwards on United site?

Must be done at time of booking. United much stricter than AA regarding cc holders getting free checked bags.

online on Turkish you can add united number I don't see option?  or you booked over phone?

I have heard if you pay the taxes with United card you can add mileage number later?

Had the same issue 2 weeks ago. Drove me nuts trying 3x times and then again on different computers and my phone. Apparently it's a known issue and it hasn't been fixed since July! I was able to book over the phone with their main call center after 3 HUCAs.

The confirmation number from Turkish can be used as a PNR on the United website. From there you can get the United PNR and associate it with your MileagePlus account, pick seats, etc. Not sure if United CC benefits follow but everything else is almost the same as if it were booked directly with United.

i have booked united tickets using turkish miles, both over phone and through email.

some differences:
1) booking over phone does NOT allow for mileage plus number add-on
2) phone reps have access to less flights 
3) is faster over phone if get someone that speaks english

disagree on point 2, many flight do not show online and agents ca book it. you just need the correct rep
