Hello again to the next chapter of my report for attend summer course at one of German university not so far away from Berlin!
So If you're not reading the first chapter on CGK-IST section you should visit that one too! Just in case you lil bit curious with TK's services and so on.

After survived on Jakarta to Istanbul flight without proper sleep on this report: Jakarta (CGK) - Istanbul (IST) on TK 57 since I can't decided where I really want to stayed during transit so I just walk here and there and always makes sure that's my TK 1721 flight appeared on the FIDS.

ISTANBUL to BERLIN


So after couple hours hanging around and make sure my flight wasn't cancelled, Finally about one hour prior to departure time the FIDS showing that 308 will be my gate for TK 1721..

Boarding pretty slow with such a light load for Berlin bound. The IFE was pretty old looking and the Map wasn't working entire flight.


Safety video played and taxing to the runway right after that.

Not so long after take off the breakfast services came. The taste way better than the previous flight.


After the breakfast services done I'm pretty sure enough I was slept for most of the flight, then before landing announcement. Berlin pretty cloudy and chill that day.

BER sign at TXL. I was hoping that my visit this year will be arrived at BER but sure enough that didn't happened HAHAHA. I was also surprised with how small is the baggage collecting area and the conveyor belt was jammed caused by some luggage falling and stuck and lil bit chaos. My partner came along from Prague, Czech Rep. was also surprised with Berlin Tegel Airport.

From Berlin to Frankfurt (Oder), Germany and Słubice, Poland me and my partner need to ride regional train first, so we heading out to Berlin Central Station.

During couple of days we stayed at hotel located on Słubice, Poland, so I can easily move out to the student dormitory after that. The hotel wasn't so far away from the bus stop near post office, Lidl, bars, restos, etc. the rate was okay too.

Conclusion

The meal catering way better than previous flight so I'm happy enough for that. The cabin crew is something that not so special for both of my Turkish Airlines flight From Jakarta - Istanbul - Berlin routing. Those empty seats were just my main happiness for sure, where I don't need to share my seat and having difficulties to just go to the lavatory and everything.
