If you plan to travel to and from South Africa, with Turkish Airlines….you have made a good choice….but… need to be very alert!!

Turkish Airlines are very good…their aircraft are new, the crew and attendants and excellent, the time table is very good …..but…beware of connections and airport operations . If you are connecting or changing aircraft at Istanbul, make sure you have AT LEAST 4 HOURS, to change. The airport is a total nightmare. Travelling to and from South Africa you will hit Istanbul middle of the night….the worst time!!
Just be prepare…and stay awake!!!

    i always find that the food on their flights is a bit suspect

    Can you explain what the problems are at Istanbul airport and why you need to allow at least four hours?

    Does this affect both ways?
