Turkish Airlines Arrivals Lounge
the Turkish Airlines Arrivals Lounge for some drinks.
Then, we approached the Hotel Desk located opposite the Arrivals Lounge and since we were eligible for a complimentary hotel (there was no shorter connection for Tallinn), we were asked to wait in the Arrivals Lounge. After 20 minutes or so, we were informed that we would be leaving for the hotel.
Renaissance Polat Istanbul where we stayed a few weeks ago.
Our flight to Tallinn was not until the following day so we decided to meet our very good Turkish friend (in Taksim Square) and explore a bit of the city.
From Taksim Square, we took a stroll along Istiklal Caddesi up to Galata Bridge where we had late lunch in one of the restaurants under the bridge 😉 Below are some of the photos we took.
Istanbul Ataturk Airport
After a good night's sleep at the Renaissance Polat Istanbul, we took the hotel shuttle around 7am and were at the airport in no time at all.

From the movie selection, I continued watching "Wizard of Lies".
Pushback was at 9:50am and moments later, Philips headphones were offered as well as the menu cards.

We had a nice take off around 10:20am and about 5 minutes later, one of the two flight attendants offered hot towels.
The flight attendants came to our seats to take our drinks order and when they came back, they served everything on a tray.
Around 11:50am, the flight attendants started collecting the headphones and an announcement was made that we would be landing at 12:07pm.
Landing at Tallinn Airport
This is another flight where I thought the seat, meal and service were great. I loved the fact that the seats are modern as well as the IFE personal screen and controls. Of course, with DO&CO Catering, nothing could go wrong. Also, the crew on this flight were really friendly and did their best to make sure we had an enjoyable time. Unfortunately, the lack of priority boarding and separate bus for business class passengers was still an issue and hopefully, this problem would be resolved when they transfer to the new Airport which is scheduled to open later in October. Overall, a very nice flight.
