The best way to spend the 9 hours stay between flights is with free city tour provided by Turkish airlines. Very efficient service that includes 4 course lunch and stop at some of cities main attractions. If you don’t feel like visiting mosques , you can just have a Turkish coffee and sweets at some nice local place (as we did;). The guide had precise information about the traffic, so he shortened the tour in order to not miss our flights. The only downside actually was quality of service on Turkish airways flights – poor level of English and lack of politeness.

Turkish is a good airline for connections as they provide good service and offer information on the gates for your next flight on the screens situated on the seats in front of you. That is especially handy when you need to find your way at the busy Attaturk airport in Istanbul. The airport is where the issues arise. Although we landed from Sofia on time, they held the aircraft on the apron for too long. When they finally attached it to an air bridge, the boarding for the flight to Vilnius had already begun and I almost missed it. Fortunately I arrived in Vilnius on time, but my baggage was not so lucky! Since Turkish airlines do one flight daily to Vilnius, my bag came next day, which caused a lot a lot of troubles. Attaturk airport is simply way congested than it should be for a smooth transfer!
