I've never been to TLV and therefore I need your help:
I will be flying from FRA via PRG to TLV with CSA Czech Airlines. My arrival is at 4:30 am.
There will also be a friend of mine, but he is arriving from Paris with Strategic Airlines (he's not such a airline freak as I am, lucky him to fly such an airline!!), and he's arriving around 11 am.
So here is my question:
Since I have a Priority pass and I will be tired after the night flight, can I remain in Transit in TLV although not having any connecting boarding pass, just go to the lounge, get a nap there and meet him at his arrival guide or in the arrival hall at 11 am and go together with him through Immigration then?
I know a lot of airports were this would be no problem at all since on arrival you can stroll around the airside departure area without an onward boarding pass as long as you don't exit the airside area, but I'm not sure how TLV is built. And not sure if the lounge will accept me without boarding pass (but I guess this should be fine since I have the PP), and also not sure if this may cause problems if I pass immigration 7 hours after my arrival, but I guess this should be fine too.
Any thoughts? And if I can remain airside, is there anyhting nice to do for 7 hours waiting for my friend to land? I'm arriving at Terminal 3, and I guess he does too since he's on an international flight.
