We flew back two days after the attempted coup and they were giving out free drinks and sandwiches at the airport.

As stated this was not a good trip. I found the staff on board to be rude and not at all friendly. If you asked for a drink they hardly ever delivered one.

Turkish Airlines is always our first choice. The service, food, comfort, available fights, and cities are exceptional. We flew from Wash. DC to Istanbul, Turkey, to Tehran, Iran.
