Home > Turkey > Miscellaneous Travel Notes
Every once in a while, we found Turkey to be considerably more confusing
than most other places we've visited. Some inexplicable complication,
inefficient way of doing things, or general chaos would crop up.
We would say, "The Turks have a plan, and they are sticking to it!"
No sense in changing anything. We have a plan, and we're going to stick with it.
Note that there are few JetWays in Turkey. Virtually all planes load out on the tarmac.
One of the better Turkish plans was to have all checked baggage lined up on the tarmac. Before boarding, each passenger located their luggage and touched, not pointed, touched their bags. Only the pawed luggage was loaded onto the plane. The rest was probably "destroyed systematically," as the announcements repeat, endlessly.
