This is a fictional trip report for entertainment purposes only, the flight was flown on a Turkish Airlines 777-300ER flight TK9 and took over 14 hours



Arriving at the New Istanbul Airport at 3am for our 5:30 departure

After spending some time in the Star Alliance lounge, I made my way over to gate F16 which is the furthest gate at Istanbul Airport. Here my plane awaits. This is TC-JJL a 12 year old 777-300ER built in 2011 and equipped with a 2 class cabin and 349 seats.

While, I was boarding the flight crew was nice enough to let me look into the cockpit.

Good bye Istanbul.

My brother who works in airport operations got this beautiful picture of my flight departing.
