Sunday night , the final match of Euro 2016 take place now, but it's time for me to return to warsaw

Few minutes after midnite , i arrived at atatürk . No pictures of the first checkpoint , i think after the bombing its not a good idea.

Meanwhile i heard that portugal unfortunately scored during the extra time !

Last shopping in IST , i want to get rid of banknotes/coins

Oh , something new , and that's really nice , it wasn't there in 2015

Here is the skyteam lounge , ive never been there yet , curious to know if it worth the price

On the other side of the terminal are 3 independent lounges (hsbc,comfort and millennium) , i will try one of them next time in IST but today i don't have time

As usual night flight means bad pixs

Taxing and a long wait cause of traffic , le traffic is heavy in IST even at night , we had to wait 20 mins in stand-by , the flow of long-haul TK never stops , the 3rd airport will be welcome

Flying over the black sea , 1 hour later they started the service . I took pasta and beef . It was better than rice/chicken, now i know what to expect about catering with SU in Y

Slept for 1h30 , then the descent to SVO




On the way we met an AZ to FCO or MXP

2 AF side by side ! I expected a PA would say in french "welcome in Paris CDG we will arrive in terminal 2F"

photo dsc01048

Today paxbus , i don't know why the hell everybody needs to stand so fast , they are not going anywhere., the FA needed to tell people to sit before we stop

photo dsc01049photo dsc01051

Paxbuses in SVO are nice in spring/summer and for spotting , but its should be awful during winter and -15*C

Passport control again and 5 minutes later iam in the terminal again , 4 days after my inbound flight

Conclusion

Aeroflot = no comment

Millenium lounge = Maybe another day

IST = when its empty its awesome , airport is quite far from city center and during night there are less options also they difference between prices in TRY/EUR is quite big

SVO = paxbus , i had to wait more than first time , also airport is quite huge if you need to walk between terminals
