Here is my FR for this weekend in IST last summer (now with correct links to the English versions for each segment)
(SU 2001) - WAW to SVO :
(SU 2134) - SVO to IST :
(SU 2135) - IST to SVO : here
(SU 2000) - SVO to WAW :
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.
check-in , there is no one , because our flight is scheduled at 01h55
Then immigration , and 20 minutes later i'am done
Boarding starts at 1h15 so i have 30 minutes to visit the airport
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
After a long walk , i reached the door.
Boarding will be delayed but quick
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"
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
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
