How to fly from Tel Aviv to Mumbai in the longest, most expensive way

  1. Book a flight at Orbitz.com that leaves from Jordan. (10 minutes)
  2. Drive to the Jordanian border and pass the border (6 hours)
  3. Wait for the taxi (“ten minutes” in Jordanian taxi language = 1 hour) + Drive to Amman airport (2 hours)
  4. Wait in line for check-in just to be refused to get on the plane because you are Israeli (45 minutes)
  5. Look for another flight and argue with Orbitz.com, who won’t give you your money back because it is the airline’s fault  (1.5 hour)
  6. Drive back to the border (2 hours + 5 minutes the driver needs to buy himself coffee even though you tell him you are in a hurry)
  7. Find out that you missed the closing time in 5 minutes (but at least the driver got his coffee). Beg from the soldiers to let you in anyway.
  8. Get refused and look for a hotel for the night. (1 hour + 1 whole night)
  9. Eat breakfast. Drive to the border, pass the border, sit with your laptop and buy new tickets from Tel Aviv. Get there by a very expensive taxi. (3 hours)
  10. Fly to Mumbai with a connection in Istanbul, Turkey. (10 hours)

Total: 48 hours and about 1500$. Oh well.
