I'm glad they dumped the political nonsense.

I think TK is about to make this thread obsolete. Yesterday I saw that at the entrance to the lounge there are new terminals that dispense a wifi password after scanning a boarding pass. This password looks pretty random, so I think it's personalized for each user. For now there are still the pieces of paper with the universal password available and they still work, but it looks like TK is preparing to make a switch.

I can confirm the above, I had to scan my boarding pass to receive a piece of paper with my personal log on details.

One can still use TK / ISTANBUL2017 also, which is on the good ol' white notes littered all over the lounge.

As a side note The personal user/pass one receives is a random password, but username is prefix+PNR. I guess the prefix is randomized somehow, otherwise I don't know how they deal with multiple persons on the same PNR.

Ha I did not even notice this but you are right, there's a 1 letter prefix followed by the PNR.

IST Lounge WiFi changes

The bits of paper with the WiFi code have gone from the lounge at IST.

There are now electronic stands where you scan your boarding pass or mobile phone and it prints out an individual user name and password time limited for three hours.

Iíve seen two stands so far downstairs by the stairs beside the pide station and the tea garden area. Iím sure there are others as well.

This is well documented in the IST lounge Wifi thread.

Mods, suggest merge.

Does your personal code expire after 3 hours ? Can you get another one?
