Update: It looks like there is a match 02/04/13 in Amman at the International Stadium with Al Faisaly vs. the UAE Team. Does anyone know if tickets to a match like this are impossible to get or cost prohibitive?

We are looking for the cheapest flight from Amsterdam to Cairo and back. Royal Jordanian Air gave us a good price with a lay over in Amman. Now Petra is a destination we like to go for years and we are thinking of skipping the flight from Amman to Cairo in order to go to Petra. We will arrange our own trip to Petra and from there to Nuweiba. Than to Cairo and from Cairo back to Amsterdam on the ticked we booked previously. I have tried to book a single trip to Amman and a single trip from Cairo to Amsterdam but this will cost me 4 times the amount the return trip from Amsterdam to Cairo via Amman will cost. What will happen if we skip the flight from Amman to Cairo? Will our tickets still cover the return trip Cairo- Amsterdam via Amman? Read more: forum.virtualtourist.com/dis...

Is it correct that on Saturdays, most if not all shops are closed in Jerusalem? Buses and taxis as means of transportation do not operate on these days? Does that mean the entrance to Holy Land is closed on a Saturday? Thanks for any information and advise.
