A good sale to Tel Aviv

A few of us on the team flew Royal Jordanian in January 2018 and February 2018 from New York to Amman to go checkout Petra and the Dead Sea, our experience was okay:

  • Do online check-in 24 hours ahead of departure to secure the best seat (if you have any Oneworld elite status, you can select it at time of booking for free. We have status and assigned our seats at booking, but we noticed that even 3 days out, a majority of seats were un-assigned and available at online checkin)
  • Bring your own food
  • Don’t expect much service
  • Inflight entertainment system is on-demand, but there wasn’t a whole lot of content
  • No inflight wifi
  • Checkin lines are long – if you don’t have status, show up early.
  • The planes are Boeing 787 Dreamliners in 3 x 3 x 3 configuration.

Here are some practical travel tips to Israel. And to Tel Aviv.

    I actually had a pretty good in-flight experience with Royal Jordanian flying another fare sale you posted last year, JFK-AMM. As you mentioned, flying longhaul in economy on a 787 is always rough, but beyond that, I found the flight attendants attentive and friendly – and the food decently edible – in both directions.

    That said, the most important thing to know about RJ is to *bring your credit card with you*. They will deny you boarding if you do not have your card that you used for payment, apparently as a fraud prevention mechanism. The card I had booked with had been used fraudulently, so I replaced it with a new one and tossed the old one. It was a problem on all four segments I flew on RJ, but AMM-CAI they told me I’d have to buy new tickets and wouldn’t get a refund for the old one, and after over an hour of waiting, the supervisor said the same thing. I finally begged him as a Oneworld Sapphire to make an exception, and he reluctantly did so. Flying home AMM-JFK, we waited over two hours and almost missed our flight as the check in agent had to keep calling their customer care until he could get a customer service person on the phone who would give him an exception. He told us they are unable to open your booking to check you in without physically swiping the card you booked with.

    @Aaron – we didn’t have an issue with the credit card, but we always carry the physical card we booked with after an incident similar to yours in Cambodia with another airline many many years ago.
