Hello again and welcome to the second part of this flight, TK800. For those people who hadn't seen the other one, I come from Bogota, Colombia, but the flight makes an stopover in Panama. Boarding started quite after cleaning services of Tocumen Airport left the plane. Cabin crew in this sector was new. In this sector, today the flight was almost full. Before take off headsets were given by the crew and safety video was played again. The touch of magic which is given by TK to create attention.
Here's the flight today
So, we made the pushback
The TV have some cameras located at the gear and the front part of the aircraft, so you can watch out, but the quality is quite poor. So we took off, at 1PM, to the pacific ocean, ready for a 13h flight and then we headed to the south for some minutes before turning to the caribbean Ocean. Here there are some pictures which were made by my seatmate (thank you!).
Bye bye Panama.
Even the clouds take off was very smooth (well, all the flight was very smooth). After seat belts signs were turned off, cabin crew started the party. First, we were given the menus, later the kits, which were excellent, and after that a hot towel.
An hour after take off they came with a drinks round. Some water to refresh
And after 2 hours lunch, dinner or whatever it came. There were two options, salmon with "rissotto" and vegetables or chicken with rice. I choosed the first one. Rissotto wasn't good, but fish and vegetables were perfect. We also had a chicken salad, hummus and a chocolate cake. Overall it was a good meal, but please, improve that rissotto haha.
Here was the meal
And of course a coffe later
By the time we were flying over Cuba
This new PTV was very good. There also were lots of options for enterteinment on board and flight map was the best I've seen in my life. It also reminds me FSX hahaha
After 4 hours flying it was sun started to set down and windows were closed
During the night I was watching film, tv shows, playing games, reading and listening to music. As the flight is to the east and we took off at 1PM, most passengers weren't sleeping so the galleys and corridors were quite cramped. The cabin crew requested to please not disturb there. In this flight they were not so friendly. At the galley you can find sandwiches (the same which were given on the BOG-PTY sector) muffins and drinks
Halfway there, reaching the Açores Islands
And we reached european coastline over Lisbon
Then I felt asleep and when I woke up, after an hour and a half, breakfast service was about to be served. The flight map had stopped working so I didn't knew the position but we should be over Italy. Breakfast was served about 1.5 hours before landing. After 10 hours I was quite hungry. And of course, an orange juice after 2 months without it… was delicious
After breakfast cabin crew offered coffee and tea and after that they started preparing the cabin for landing. We started descending in Istanbul about 30 minutes before landing. My seatmate took me some pictures. It was a nice sunny day in Turkey
So we landed after a flight time of 13 hours and 16 minutes, just after 10 o clock in the morning local time. Landing was very smooth. We parked on the terminal and disembarked the plane where I've been for the nearly last 18 hours.
Taxiing to the gate
Cabin after landing
Bye TC-JNE, see you soon?
I went to the security control and after that I went to the bar and
That's the best think you can do after being 18 hours flying :D :D
And then I started waiting for my next flight, the last one, which had to take me, finally, to my hometown.
Tocumen - PTY
Istanbul - IST
This long flight with Turkish was much better. I appreciate the fact of the airline to give Kits for long flights, and also the catering was very good. Overall, a good flight.
