Ataturk Airport International - Place to shower and change

I am flying from Los Angeles and have just 2 hours and 10 minutes layover at this airport before my connecting flight to Delhi, India. I don't know how big the airport and the who long it will take to get to the next gate. so, if someone who has been on the airport can please share how big it is and how long it might take ?

Also, if possible I would like to shower and change before my next flight. I found few suggestions about primeclass lounge but it's around $80 for 3 of us. Don't know if that is worth for just 30-40 minutes that we would probably have. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Dev13LosAngeles, Ataturk Airport is large but easy to use. I recommend a minimum of two hours between two international flights but in your case since you will check all your luggage thru Delhi at LA, you do not need to leave the transit lounge. As long as you have the boarding passes for the Delhi flight, you simply remain at the transit lounge and go from one gate to another, and enjoy the excellent duty free shopping center.

On the shower issue, unfortunately there are no free showers, but you can use one of the pay lounges that can be accessed from the transit lounge. Here is the map of the departure level: "ataturkairport.com/tr-TR/…gidis.pdf".

good luck,
