BE Lounge Access in ISTANBUL

I am traveling to Istanbul, Turkey on DL 72 from JFK and returning on DL 73 to JFK at the end of August. Has anyone taken this trip? If yes, does Delta offer any type of lounge access in Istanbul with them or a partner airline? Thanks!

Yes if you are Travelling in BE you get access to a local lounge service which serves many different airlines. In fact it is preferable to the BE lounges in the U.S. IMHO. THere is a variety of food available and some of it is prepackaged so you can take it on board if you want. The only deownside is that the restrooms are located directly outside the lounge. But I think that is a minor incovenience based on the food and drink selections. You will get a Pass to the lounge when you check in at the BE counter. Enjoy.

last. Last time I was in IST BE PAX were given invitation to the BA Lounge, which I guess has changed since October of last year.

Which IMHO was very nice repleate with bathroom inside the lounge.

I should also add that IST Attaturk airport has free WIFI.
