Does anyone know if there is a way to get into the lounge in Istanbul if you are not flying business, any credit cards or lounge passes that will work? or do they let you in for a fee? TIA

Anybody ever do the TourIstanbul?

There are still travel advisories for Turkey; is it any more dangerous than the rest of the Middle East?
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

I booked award ticket on Turkish for flight on Sunday -- half family booked through United, other half through Aeroplan.  I want to (a) request Kosher food, and (b) request that we all be seated together.  Turkish continues to tell me (i.e. multiple calls) that they cannot access my reservation but I should make the request at the airport (which will be too late for the food), and United and Aeroplan say there's nothing they can do on their end, as this is a Turkish issue.

Any advice?

If they can't access your reservation that could be a bigger ticketing issue.
Get your TK PNR and request kosher meal on TK site manage my booking

Is there a lounge in JFK, IST, and TLV for someone flying J on TK? Does he need any particular cc/membership, or is a J ticket sufficient? Thanks.
