The guy sitting next to me was annoying with his arms hitting me while he was sleeping all night. But it has nothing to do with the airline.

My husband and I are old and I was also sick. This we had ordered wheelchairs, but unfortunately we only got that service at the JFK airport and NOT at the Istanbul airport. So we had to walk a long distance within the airport to go the the gate where we had to take the next flight.

This airline is committed to becoming one of the top 5 airlines. It will be interesting to see how their trajectory evolves.

Flight was 2 hours delayed and we had to run all the way to connecting flight in Istanbul and nearly missed our flight . My brother and sister in law did miss their connection flight because of delay the week before. And they had requested wheelchair service and were very disappointed of the no service.
