Landing at Istanbul Airport
Since I've taken this flight a lot of times in the last years, I knew more or less what to expect. Just like with my past flights, the service was friendly, the meal was great and the seat was comfortable. Unfortunately, the flight delay and not having a passenger bridge upon arrival in Istanbul were not so nice things. Still, a very nice flight 😉
