A Monday piece with a little flight tip as an extra – sitting in 9G in a Turkish Airlines A340 that will shortly begin its descent into CPT: Cape Town.
It’s been a long one – started at 6pm yesterday in Copenhagen and had a three-hour layover in Atatürk airport in Istanbul. Let me just say that 02:25 departures never will be a favourite. A surprising number of Danes and Swedes on the plane here – at least there is a Danish group here for a 10-day wine trip.
And as for the tip: If you ever fly Turkish Airline’s A340 in the Economy section, try to pick a G seat. All the 7 other seats across have a smaller or larger entertainment box underneath the seat in front of you, reducing your leg room. You’re welcome 🙂
The week has since offered flights to and from George and then on to Joburg. Homewards haul from JNB via IST begins this evening – after a good week here with the loveliest colleagues I’m quite content and happy but it’ll also be good to get back!
