I had 4 hours to burn until my flight so I entered to TK CIP lounge with my 1K UA member. I was there few times so nothing were new for me. It was a dark and rainny outside so I'm sorry that there's not spotting photos…
I wanted to play but it was close:
All you can eat:
You can see flight radar of IST airport on a big screen:
I left the lounge and went to my gate at 8:40AM, our gate was in the oppsite side of the Terminal, gate 210. I was pretty sad to left the lounge and back home…. Aegean A320 and more (and only) Turkish Aircrafts. How much planes did you count?
Last photos form IST:
My ride for today: Airbus A320 (Changed from A319), TC-JPB ex-2005.
All passengers to Tel Aviv had to get a sign of IST airport on their boarding passes from the boarding counter, more security on the way to Israel. I passed the boarding line as I used my 1K card as a Business Class member. Cabin was nice and clean for 2 hours flight:
Flight was 100% load, It was after Hannukah holiday but most of the passengers weren't Israeli/Turkish, they went to visit Israel and Bethlehem for the Christmas or doing business in Israel. A short leg for today flight:
It was rainny outside since 5AM:
British A320 taxing:
Pitch were decent. not as the tighter seats on the A330 (I'm 1.76m)
She also wanted to arrive to Israel!
We had been waiting for 1 hour on the taxi runway for giving an Issue for departure
I don't want to be on this flight, hope that Iraqian citizens are ok!!!

Finally, at 10:22AM we got the issue for departuer, more than 1 being stucking on the plane!!! Take off:
Cursing over Antalya, on our way to Israel:
I was full from the breakfast that I hate in the lounge so I didn't asked for that. The meal was some of cheese, chicken, vegtables and a cake. I studied for a test in Math durning flight. Approch started:

Turkish Airlines Lounge
Istanbul - IST

TK is a great airline with a cheap prices. TK is better than airlines that I've flown like UA,LX,LH,OS,AR,AC,TG,LY and more. Great meals, nice cabin crew but seat pitch can be tight. But I'll continue to fly with Turkish Airlines. Destantions that I flew with Turkish: Johannesburg (2 times) Cape Town (2 times) Shanghai Singapore Istanbul Kathmandu Lagos New Delhi Planes that flown with Turkish: A319 A320 A321 A330-200 A330-300 A340-300 737-800 737-900 777-300ER
