This report has been added to the FLASHBACK SERIES as this FR doesn't include much detail as my regular reports. In this series of flights, I would share reports from flights that I've flown before registering this website. Just a quick reminder that I am the same human being with "turkishflyer1" on flyertalk so the reports posted can be the same as posted there.
Regular up to date reports would be continued to be shared shortly after the flight date.
List subject to change due to photo availability, dates are estimated and changes can occur. As these flights are reported you would be able to click on the sector to see the FR. Not reported flights would be written in italic.
Was quite easy and simple but the bad thing was the seats were assigned to you by the system.
Entering the Airport:
After a 5 minute wait at the enterance security checkpoint as in Turkey you are screened twice at airports. One for entering the airport and one for your flight.
Quick and fastly made. It was interesting that XQ had special check-in desks for families and for passengers who needed assistance. No other airline has this service in domestic routes.
No lounge for my first report on flight-report.com
The aircraft & boarding
TC-SUV was going to operate today's flight to ADB. The boarding was made at gate 208B and on time.
The seat was comfortable and the legroom was OK for a very short flight on a charter airline.
Some plane spotting. Sorry for the bad photo quality.
Today's XQ flight to AYT was going to be operated by Onurair.
PC 801 to Brussels-CRL ( TC-CPB )

TC-JDL getting ready for his retirement
TC-AAO flying to AYT
TC-DCG getting ready for takeoff.
PC 212 to Ercan ( TC-CPM )
Takeoff was a little bit delayed because of the air traffic but it wasn't a delay.

There was no free meal. I could have ordered my meal online but I didn't and the cafe prices were very expensive.
Water was ?7.50. In supermarkets the same water is worth ?0.50
No monitors on board, only a magazine and a duty free catalogue for international flights.
Landing 20 minutes late of scheduled time. Airport from the air.

SunExpress is a good choice for short destinations in Turkey and it has low fares. This flight had the half fare of TK at that hour and SunExpress is a joint venture of TK & LH.
