Absolutely NO leg room for passengers. Food had no flavor.

Reasonable flight chosen because it was cheap. We were going to Catania Sicily so we had to spend the night in the airport. I didn't like that, but will put up with it as long as the price was low. As Americans we couldn't go out of the airport. There should be a cheaper transit visa so we don't have to pay $80 for a visa for the privilege of sleeping in a Turkish hotel.
