Getting there

There are no direct flights from Zurich to Asghabat – thus changing planes in Istanbul … unfortunately with a six hour wait which was considerably prolonged due to a bomb threat. This meant that everyone had to get off the plane, go back to the gate, go through security again – while all the luggage was taken off the plane to be searched. We finally left Istanbul with a three hour delay, a new crew, but the same plane – arriving in Asghabat just in time for breakfast.
