Anyone know which airline is preferable to Israel between aeroflot and Turkish airlines?  they're both roughly same price..
Tia!
Turkish by far.
Always praying for delayed baggage.

Youre directly supporting terrorism instead of supporting the Russians who support terrorism...DidIgetthatright? ;D

Better service. Cleaner. Shorter flight time.

Only issue is if someone has a hard time walking, the gates are usually far apart on turkish.

I would add "greater frequency" which can help in case of missed connection.

Are gates farther apart true for the new IST airport?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

5 pax, staying in BH.

CLE-MIA AA F, 15K Avios (Sitting on a bunch from AMEX 40% and Iberia, effectively 10.7K with 40% bonus. Only $5.60 to cancel.)
CLE-FLL UA Y+, 10.5K UA miles (Probably get 2/5 upgraded for free...which isn't very useful. Best service in case of irrops due to GS. Free cancellation.)
CLE-FLL B6 Y, 5.7K B6 points (Still sitting on a bunch of points from pointmatch)

If AA is 772/W, or 757 do AA, if not do B6, if for you do AA regardless, cuz you ain't running out anytime soon.

It's an RJ175, which is basically flagship F for AA in CLE  ;D
Actually a great plane for F with 5 pax due to 1-2 configuration. But renting a car in MIA is never fun.

I'd do B6, it's the cheapest and flying into FLL is just easier.
ETA: especially if you can get even more seats on B6, I don't see the need for F on a regular 1.5 hr flight.

I don't find that a pain TBH, but I forgot the time question with AA...

Won't have Mosaic next year, so no EMS. Plus most EMS doesn't work with carseats.
