They don't make magic carpets anymore, and if they did you'd probably have to pay a fee for each suitcase and extra legroom. It's a long flight from San Francisco to Istanbul, but it worth every minute of stale air and leg cramps. We left SFO on Monday afternoon, changed planes in Munich, and landed at Istanbul Airport on Tuesday night; our driver from the Sultanhan Hotel met us outside baggage pick-up. We had arrived on time and with all our bags, quite proud of ourselves and grateful to our travel agent, Anji Grainger of Panorama Travel."
