The van picked me up from the hotel at about 2 hrs. before dept. and the ride took a good 1 hr to the airport. Kayseri airport is small with a dedicated area for intl. flights. I did not feel comfortable taking pictures of the airport because there was some kind of military base next to it and wanted to avoid attention just in case.

Once again, I had to pass through security and have my bags x-rayed before entering into the building. Once inside, I proceeded to the Pegasus counter to check in for my flight. The agent seemed robotic and at the end wished me a good flight. Before heading to the gate which was almost next to the counter I had to go through security one more time. It was not necessary to take off your shoes and the whole screening process was carried out efficiently and in a dignified way.

Boarding soon began and we boarded from both the front and rear of the plane. Today's flight was full and took my window seat quickly. The pitch felt very tight, but for a 1:20 min flight it was fine. About 10 minutes after take off, a smiling male FA approached me with my pre-ordered meal and asked for my drink of choice. I requested some sour cherry juice and it was brought up right away. My meal was the chicken leg in thyme sauce and it cost 24.98 TRY which is a bit pricey. However, the quality of the meal was very good featuring chicken pieces with rice and vegetables, warm roll, salad with beans, chocolate cake with whipped cream, crackers and cream cheese.

We arrived as scheduled on a sunny day and made my way to the Havas bus to take me to Taksim Sq. Once there, I took the funicular to Kabatas where I connected to the tram to Sultanahmet.

Conclusion

Although the seat pitch was tight, the friendliness of the flight attendant, generous pre-ordered meal and on-time performance more than made up for the shortcoming of this flight. Pegasus is in principle a low cost carrier, but their extras like inflight meals are a good value for your money and if you happen to buy one of their excellent low fares, then you can't help but feel like a winner.
