The premium economy class was definitely worth the small increase. The seating was spacious and comfortable. There was a menu to order food. We were given hot towels.The air hostess was polite and professional. Certainly worth the few extra dollars. Economy seating on the other hand is cramped up with little leg room and there is a marked difference in...

I was flying by myself on an 11 hour flight after a very long and exhausting trip and was looking forward to sleeping the whole way through. Little did I know I would not get even a minute of sleep on this flight. From the outset everything seemed okay, very standard, but went downhill very fast. I had requested a...

No doubt the best flying experience I have had since I can remember. The courtesy, the food and snacks, and the amenities such as a steamed towel for the face, blankets and slippers, and a small lovely tin box filled with things like ear plugs and eye mask. It was a long flight direct to Istanbul, but Turkish Air made...

My husband and I took direct flights (roundtrip) from DC to Istanbul and back on Turkish Airlines. These were 12 hour flights in Economy and the first overseas flight either of us had taken in 20 years. Both flights were very crowded which made the cramped Economy seating very uncomfortable. We got up to walk around about every hour or...

Initially was hesitant to book our flight on Turkish Airlines, but I'm so glad I did! My husband and I have nothing by good things to say about this airline. The flight staff was quite attentive, food/drinks were excellent and everyone received their own 'bag' of goodies for the flight. Would fly Turkish Airlines again.

The flight itself was excellent - on time departure in both directions with early arrival going and coming. The airline has comfortable seats, great entertainment systems at each seat and good food (for airline food). However, as with many carriers, the line and wait at the ticket counter seems interminable. The staff at the counter is very pleasant once you...

“If continuing beyond Istanbul you might consider an over night stay. Marriott Courtyard in the airport is very reasonable and excellent..”
