After immigration and a stamp on my BP , i can start to explore the terminal D

Now let's go to the lounge , but the question is …. Which one ??? As i have plenty of choice in terminals D/E/F. Finally i read the reviews on internet and choosed the "gallery lounge" , located between terminal D and E

It's a new lounge located over gate 32 , it's not so poshy but i like it


The offer is perfect for a breakfast/lunch , that's perfect in my case cause i'm hungry




Just few pixs to help you understand what's available

And now enjoy the restricted panorama, thats the weakest point of this lounge

FIDS in the lounge , awesome because the lounge is between two terminals , so gives you infos about flights departures from terminals D, E and F

8 o'clock , time to go, before boarding i need a walk . SVO looks like AMS but smaller

The shocking fact about this airport , its how many people are sleeping on the floor

At gate 28 , boarding already started

Here is what's left after me , sorry i forget to take a pix before , cause things went so fast

It's raining on SVO , next to us another SU and then china eastern or southern

Flight is full , but boarding was quick

While taxing we met another AF

And a OK to PRG

Today's flight will be 3h40m long



Take off , and 10 mins later , over the clouds , here are the moon and the sun together

The pitch was awesome, my knees don't touch the front seat ! Nothing else compare to the 777-300er of AF in high density's configuration (see my first trip)

Time for drink and food , meanwhile the FA called me by my name and greeted me for flying with SU , even as a FB silver. Such things are dedicated for gold/platinium with AF/KL

Let's check the food , its quite basic , not awesome but not aweful neither

Service is done , i cam open my tablet and finish my series/clips

When we started our descent to IST the captain made an announcement , because of this i yelled in the plane like a **** , i was so happy : 2-0 ! France won against Germany

Welcome to TK land .

i have only hand luggage so i can rush to immigration . I heard that queues were huge lately , because of aid/bayram , finally it was empty

Here i'am again in istanbul . I missed the last shuttle to city center , so i shared a cab with another cab (30tl/around 12€)

That's all folks
