Pass this on.
I am, although I haven't checked the website.
Delta Airlines has a frequent flyer program and a website which tells you how many miles one must have to get a free ticket from one place to another. With regard to the Middle East, the site is:
On this site, there is a chart which begins as follows:
For Travel From the Middle East:
Bahrain; Egypt; Iran, Islamic Republic of; Iraq; Israel; Jordan; Kuwait; Lebanon; Occupied Palestinian Territory; Oman; Qatar; Saudi Arabia; Syrian Arab Republic; United Arab Emirates (composed of Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai, Fujairah, Ras El Khaimah, Sharjah, Umm Al Qaiwain); Yemen, Republic of; Kazakhstan; Kyrgyzstan; Uzbekistan.
How dare they write: Occupied Palestinian Territory!
Not only that, but in this table effectively Delta says that if you want to fly from Occupied Palestinian Territory to another place, you need a certain number of miles.
I didnt know that Delta flies from Occupied Palestinian Territory. It flies from Ben Gurion airport in Lod. Is that Occupied Palestinian Territory?

American Airlines just started a direct flight from Dallas to Dubai.
They do a commercial for it on the same station that Airs Rush Limbaugh
Why in heck is a flight from Dallas to Dubai controversial to you? Is no American airline to fly to the Middle East at all? And why did you capitalize "Airs?"
Gaza International airport serves the Palestinian Territories. SkyMiles codeshare partners fly there.
There are no operating airports in the West Bank or Gaza.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
If you go to the link you'll find Delta flies many places in the middle east. If they haven't changed it by the time you get ther, the fly to
Middle East >Bahrain; Egypt; Iran, Islamic Republic of; Iraq; Israel; Jordan; Kuwait; Lebanon; Palestinian Territories; Oman; Qatar; Saudi Arabia; Syrian Arab Republic; United Arab Emirates (composed of Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai, Fujairah, Ras El Khaimah, Sharjah, Umm Al Qaiwain); Yemen, Republic of; Kazakhstan; Kyrgyzstan; Uzbekistan
You can book a flight on Delta to Israel, just where they fly you in the palestinian territories is unclear, there being no airports.
You’re putting me on.
Be careful before booking a flight. Irrespective of whether they still have a code, Gaza International, actually known as Yasser Arafat International Airport, has been closed since 2002. Runways are in bad shape.
Wow. Slight flight delay to be expected. Did we do that, or did they?
Why do you get to use "irrespective" in a sentence and I get in trouble for using "irregardless"?
The good guys with the big American bulldozers. The euros were very upset. They’d have to rebuild it to fly in arms.
There’s a whole lot of concrete going to waste there. Can’t they alleviate suffering by recycling it for building houses and hardened bunkers?
Thanks Eleutheria5. It is true that Palestine is occupied — it’s occupied by the ethnically undifferentiated Arabs squatting on Israeli territory, but calling themselves Palestinians.
