(Guest Review) For a major international transit hub, the airport is way too small to accommodate the passengers it handles. You see people sitting on the floors, in all restaurant and coffee shops.

(Guest Review) Istanbul airport has everything you cou,d ever wish for in an international airport - easy directions, comfortable seating, excellent local and reliable transportation. The business class lounge is to die for with several delicious food stations, showers, free massage tables, fresh fruits, vegetables, drinks, quiet ares with comfortable lounge chairs which fully recline, free wifi, over 50 TVs with translation headphones - maximum comfort. The Duty Free shols are plentiful and everyone is just ultra friendly.

I told them no, and then explained to them, in turkish, that I had heard the awful things they had said and that they would have to kill me before they got to them. After getting our visas and getting out of customs, to police officers where outside waiting for me.

(Guest Review) I have had cause to transit through this airport thrice in this year and on each occasion, my plane experienced at least 15 minutes delay in landing. This is usually spent circling around over the Marmara sea. A waste of time. Landing and coming to a stop is always too sharp for my liking and I reckon it is because the runway is too short. On every journey through this airport, my plane spent an additional 10 - 15 mins on the tarmac at a standstill waiting for a parking spot before passengers disembarked. Taking off for my connecting flight was always an uncomfortable bus journey to a plane located somewhere way off the main terminal building, in the heat. This airport has no free wifi. There is insufficient seating for those waiting for flights and the crowd is always huge. The toilets are always occupied even for use of continued >>
