Recommendation feedback - Pegasus Airlines
Second recommendation/info was for Pegasus Air; Apart from an hour delay at Dalaman (happens to the best of them) and misplacing our bag for 1 day on the Stanstead run, the airline was good, onboard service friendly and efficient, lots of smiling stewardess’s. The cost of the ticket was very, very good and with a baggage allowance of 25K with 8K hand luggage meant that a total of 33K was allowed, extremely generous. We only took 23K in total to London as we knew we would be fully loaded on our return with Christmas presents, Indian and Chinese spices and other bits.
The return journey couldn’t have been easier but we were 1K over at Stanstead and we were charged £8! Somewhat surprised as we were virtually on target but hey, rules is rules! We stopped over in Istanbul for 4 days with a couple of friends and we were able to use 25k of their allowance, we stayed at the Apex Hotel (TLF recommendation) in Sultan Ahmet but more of this later. The flight to Istanbul, as mentioned, included 25K plus 8K hand luggage allowance but the journey from Istanbul to Dalaman is only 15K. Luckily for us we have a friend in Istanbul who frequently drives down to Datca so we were able to unload a lot of our excess on him; even so we were still 15K over limit with some souvenirs and bits bought in Istanbul. It was with some trepidation that we approached the check-in counter for the flight to Dalaman as we had fully expected to pay excess charges but we were pleasantly surprised when the girl just checked us in and virtually waved us through without blinking and eye with the excess. Pegasus Air is highly recommended but book early to take advantage of their cheap fares.
