    Ataturk airport in Istanbul impressed me when I passed through a year ago, as did the Turkish Airlines flights from/to Manchester, though I was not connecting to Manila.

    Nice food, both on the flight, and in the airport. :like:

    Wife hated both flights from Manila and Istanbul with Turkish airlines, and she said their food was terrible.
    That was in November 2016.

    I've avoided Istanbul mainly due to poor connections and hours of stop over but also as it was a target of the last attempted coup.

    There was also a major terrorist attack at Ataturk not that long ago, or was that linked to the coup?

    yeah, security is very high. They even stopped and checked her luggage at Manchester airport when she arrived from Istanbul.

    They only found 3 litres of local gin, and said go on take them to your husband, bless her.;)

    When I flew from Manila to Singapore, we all had to go through the metal detectors and xray again. Never had that before

    There is nothing worst than that especially when you are pushed for time, it can make the journey more stressful.

    I prefer 2 to 3 hours to change flights, gives me more time to stretch my legs, and just in case the first flight is delayed gives a chance to catch the next flight.

    Last time I checked that out with Malaysia or Thai, (I forget which), it would have been cheaper to have booked Business class in the first place.

    That was for a short haul KUL to BKK, eco was fine. :like:
