Turkish Airlines / Layover at IST

Jump to last reply

I posted this in the Airline Forum but I don't have any responses yet so I will give it a try here. C'mon Turkey experts, I know you are out there. :-)

I am considering a flight AUS/IAH/IST/CPT. I was reading some reviews of Turkish Airlines on other boards and a couple of posts stated that TA turns a blind eye to smoking on the plane. I am a lifelong non-smoker who has suffered serious lung disease and there's no way I would even consider a flight with an airline that ignores smoking, especially if it's a long haul.

Assuming the answer to my question above is that smoking is strictly forbidden, then I would like to know about the facilities and smoking situation at IST. I have flown into IST but I did not have a layover, I was just in and out so I don't remember if it was smoky. This time I would have 8 hours in the airport so I need to be sure I won't be exposed to very much smoke if any.

I'm really hoping I can go this route as it's quite a bit cheaper than my other options.

Another question about facilities, I will be in coach so I'm wondering if there is a place where I can shower. A shower would be great but it's not as big a consideration as we the well-being of my lungs.

Thanks in advance.
