I hear your rant
Yes, I've been to TZX few times, took the 330 there also, crowded lounge. I hear all that.
About the bussing at IST and long taxi times. I think runway 3 is going to help the Domestic flight taxi times, not the INT flights.
One thing you don't see very often at IST is empty jets being moved around between gates and remote stands. Instead of bussing people, I wonder if they can have the pax disembark at a gate and then move the jet to Domestic or International Pier while empty, where ever it needs to go??
I remember spending long hours at FRA or JFK for a connection and you'd be surprised how many jets are being towed around, don't see this being done much at IST old or new. Probably much easy and less liability to bus people around than move 250 million $ aircraft, but others do why can't TK? I don't think transfer pax love the bus ride after 14 hour flight from the other side of the world they should make it user friendly. Just my 2 cents
