20 Israelis on plane that made emergency landing in Tehran

There are a lot of things I will do to get frequent flier miles. There are also things I won't do. One of them is to fly Turkish Airlines (or the national airline of any other country that has cordial relations with Iran) on a flight that overflies Iran or any other enemy country.

20 Israelis should say the blessing that one says after arriving on an overseas flight with a lot more fervor this morning. Overnight, they were on a Turkish Airlines flight from Istanbul to Mumbai (probably to save money because it's cheaper than flying El Al non-stop from Tel Aviv) that made an emergency landing in Tehran to evacuate an ill passenger. Fortunately, that passenger was not Israeli, and the rest of the flight was allowed to leave.

But why take chances?
