I pick off from my last report and we rush to make the connection to our next flight after a long queue at security at Ataturk. Having just been on an 11.5 hr flight, I'm definitely not in the best condition.

Ataturk is not the most modern airport and it felt kind of confusing at times. Not much in terms of amenities.

Making our way to the gate, right at the corner of the airport. It was quite a distance from where we were.

A small flight but still full. Managed to snag a window seat for this flight so I'm not too concerned but I was separated from my travel partners. Again, boarding groups are strictly enforced here.

Boarding the plane. It's a small plane so you can barely see it's nose poke out.
