The Turkish airline aircrafts are not comfortable and much smaller on the African routes (long flights) then on the shorter European legs. It should be the other way around. The connecting time is very limited (only 1h 15min). As most of the time the Khartoum flights leaves with delay, connection is lost, and I have to wait for the next flight, which is very tireing and annoying.
There was delays in Khartoum airport for more than hour , therefore, I couldn’t catch the connecting flight to Athens Airport. This is happened to me for the second time within less than a month
It could be 5 if I got a free hotel in Istanbul as promised for the schedule changed
That was gut organized flight.
It was on time no delays
I’m satisfied with my trip and with the price
very nice trip
