I'm an Israeli expat living in Europe (proper residence etc. but no citizenship/passport). I intend to travel from Europe to India, and I'm considering using an airline based in a state without diplomatic relations with Israel, which may or may not be somewhat hostile to it (e.g. Emirates but not just them).
- Will I have problems with my specific choice or can I just safely book the ticket?
- More generally, how can I tell which airlines might be problematic for me to fly with, using an Israeli passport, and assuming I fly between places through which I can pass with that passport?
- Please do not interpret this question as trying to legitimize or smooth out issues stemming from problematic Israeli policies; I have strong political opinions (dissenting by Israeli standards) on these matters which I will obviously not go into on this website, and am not passing judgment this way or that, for the purposes of this question, on airlines not taking on Israeli passengers.
- Answers regarding transit stops are relevant.
