Sorry, icenspice, I though the most interesting bit of my travel “to” was the CIP service on arrival!
I travelled to Iran on Turkish, economy, and then returned on TK again, this time in business. I was very tight for time at the end of the visit, needing to be in Glasgow before the afternoon, the day after we finished the work. The agency I was working for fixed the only possible connection, IKA – IST – EDI, and then the bus to Glasgow. The TK flights were all good, the IST – EDI leg being enlivened by Scottish football fans returning from Tbilisi.
