I'm making my first ever international trip in December. I'm flying from LAX (Los Angeles California) to Izmir Turkey..I have a layover in Istanbul it looks like my layover is an hour and a half long.
I've heard how terrible this airport is, how rude people are to the Americans, and seriously delayed flights.
Please help me figure out this leg of my travel after I land in Istanbul. How far do you think my connection flight will be from my incoming flight.
Should I try to rebook my flight with a longer layover?
If worse case happens can I catch a train from Istanbul to izmir?
What do I need to know to fly international as an American? I have my passport already. Its brand spanking new so that's good. But I just feel so under prepared for this trip.
