So what's the concensus then?
a) Not bother to ask for bags to be checked through, collect bags at IST, pay the 10 visa thingy to enter Turkey, and re-check for the IST-HKG flight??
b) Ask at MAN for bags to be checked through and risk having to pay APD? I'm guessing there is no real benefit to this other than not having to collect bags, they won't make themselves liable for a mis-connection surely??
It's not clear whether you are travelling on two separate tickets - one ticket for each sector.

If it's a single ticket, MAN-HKG connecting in IST then you should already have paid APD bundled in the taxes and fees.

If you have two tickets: then is this a paid flight + a redemption flight: or two redemptions ? and are they both on TK?
