Their aircraft undergo regular safety checks as defined by ICAO standards

I mean as far as stopping over in Turkey...

The Airport in Turkey is brand new, I don't suspect it will collapse anytime soon

I believe there is some sort of shul in IST

Thank you both! I read online that there are separate men's and women's prayer rooms.

Looks like it's near B1? Is that right?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Nice!
Quote
The Jewish community began to address the issue and as of today, there are a few options of fresh Kosher food. "The airport management installed a vending machine in the terminal with sandwiches, drinks and cakes under the supervision of Chief Rabbi of Turkey Isaak Haleva".
The second option will be offered to travelers who have access to the business lounges. Chitrik reveals that "The lounge will have hot food wrapped in two layers (for Kashrut reasons) therefore can be heated in an oven."

From looking at the pictures and this map, I would say it's probably next to the Duty Free which is opposite C4. But I'm sure a quick message after Shabbos to Rabbi Chitrik can help get the exact location.

Tried booking star alliance award on united with turkish miles. It is telling me that I must book a ticket first for the account holder and only after for other travelers. Problem is that the account holder is DW and she is not traveling. Any workaround? Can the ticket be booked and then cancelled with the points being redeposited?

You need to call in.Turkish can’t book United for 3rd party online, only over the phone.

According to Rabbi Chitrik, besides the vending machine, there is kosher food available in the IGA Lounge, which is on the priority pass network. No advance reservation is required, just ask any waiter.
