For those of you who follow me on instagram, you already know that I arrived in my motherland, Tanzania last week. I will be here for a couple of more weeks for a
short long vacay. The internet is not the most reliable, so I wont be able to have my regular posts and will definitely not be able to upload any videos until I get back. But I will be popping up on the blog whenever I can with my travel photo diary. I will only be able to resume regular posts when I get back in November. In the meantime I hope you enjoy these random travel posts.
To start with, I wanted to share with you guys my experience on Turkish Airways. This was my first time traveling with them & I was quite impressed with their service. I usually have very low expectations when it comes to airline food. Especially with most airlines now skimping on food and even making passengers pay extra for meals.
French Green Bean Salad With Yoghurt
A choice between:
Stuffed Eggplant with Minced Beef tomato sauce / rice
Chicken Skewer with Arabic Spice sauteed leaf spinach / rice
Oven fresh bread selection
Cheese Sandwich & Sour Cherry Cake
I must say Turkish airways exceeded my expectations, the seats were very comfortable, the entertainment was great and the food was truly delicious. The quality of food was very close to what you would expect in a restaurant.
Now for the negatives…The International Airport at Istanbul where we had to connect flights was super busy and I was really surprised at the amount of people that actually travel in October.
It was super packed and hot! Most of the passengers waiting for their connecting flights had nowhere to sit. Hence lots of them opted to sit down on the floor as they were waiting.
I really think the airport can not handle the capacity of all the planes coming in and out. If they could expand it, it would be great, other than that it is really beautiful and has a lot of great dining areas. Including Starbucks and Popeyes for the coffee and fast food lovers.
Another thing that wasn’t so pleasant traveling with Turkish Airways was the fact that the plane arrives in Dar-Es-Salaam, Tanzania at 2:00 AM on a Tuesday. This can be really inconvenient for hosts picking passengers up, especially if they have to show up for work in the morning.
I’m now very curious and would love to know about experiences on some of these other less popular airlines. What are your experiences with some of these airlines?
Thanx so much for stopping by ♥,
Much Love & Stay Blessed,
