We rode on Emirates Airlines in Going to Amman Jordan, on our first leg of our middle eastern jaunt of 3 weeks since emirates offers the best rates and with excellent service, even for economy. they have twice daily flights to and from amman fro their hub in Dubai.
Emirates Airline is the largest airline in the Middle East, operating over 3,000 flights per week from its hub at Terminal 3 of Dubai International Airport, to more than 130 cities in 77 countries across six continents. Emirates is one of the most sucessful legacy airline carriers in the world (since it is heavily subsidized by the government) and has the third largest in terms of passenger volume and is not a member of any airline alliance such as Sky Team or One World or Star Alliance. Emirates operates an exclusively wide-bodied aircraft fleet, composed of three aircraft families: the Airbus A330/A340, Airbus A380 and the Boeing 777.
Emirates has one of the best cabin of all the airlines of the world and their ICE entertainment system is top notch.

The Best way to come to Jordan is via Royal Jordanian Airline. It is just an okay airline. Not at all as bad as KLM is !!! I hate KLM because their aircrafts are old and very unreliable. But RJ is fine and getting better day by day. The service is fine too. They give you a lot of facilities as beign their passengers. If you have your next flight next day then they will give you a room in 4 star hotel and with all 3 meals !!! and in this way you can see Amman as well. But it is better to get the Visa before going there.
Avoid th airport rush and head to Royal Jordanian's 7th Circle City Terminal, where you can checkin your baggage and receive your boardiing pass up to four hours prior to departure.
Shuttle buses will take you to Queen Alia International Airport, where you will be whisked through a special gate directly to immigration and off to your departure gate. This service is available exclusively for passengers on all RJ flights to all destinations from Amman. Passengers flying to US destinations can check in no more than 24 hours prior to their flight.

I flew to Amman (via Abu Dhabi) from Johannesburg with Ethiad Airways. It was my first time to fly with this airline, and had a good experience.
The staff is very professional and service is friendly. The in-flight entertainment and food was more than satisfactory.
I will definitely fly with them again.
Amman International Airport is served by several airlines including Royal Jordanian, Emirates, Gulf Air, etc.
The airport is located around 40 km outside the city in the middle of the desert, however there is a lot of development going on at the Airport road, ie the road that takes you from the airport to the city.
I flew with Jordanian airways from Rome to Bangkok and back, a definitly nice,cheap and safe company.On our way back home, as we had a stop over of 5 hours, the company provided us an accomodation in a hotel close to the airport, so after getting a transit visa, we could have a shower and rest a few hours free.
