This was first time flying with Turkish Airlines, the plane was clean and tidy and the staff very pleasant, the in flight meal was a little disappointing but it was better than some airlines, My sister-in-law said they had a brilliant meal on the same flight 3 weeks earlier. The seats had built in screens so you could pick your...

I was most impressed that the Ataturk Airport opened again for business five hours after the suicide bombers attacked recently.. Such professional spirit. Having been in the airport on the night of the attack, it seemed strange to me, at first, to return two nights later in order to fly out. Everyone was calm and polite, all systems go, all...

Great airline! Great on board service. Little menus to chose from. Free drinks, snacks, etc. I travelled with crutches and the airline went out if their way to make sure that I was wheeled in and out first to make me more comfortable. They even checked on me several times during the long flight to make sure I didn't need...

I'm not sure if I was lucky or what. Let me explain a little... before I flied, there was an attack at Atatürk Airport where my transit flight would be. A lot of Turkish Airlines flights were canceled or delayed, with many people stuck at the airport. I was thinking about changing my flight but decided eventually to go with...

We flew to Israel via Turkey in business class, It was an amazing flight, Starting with the plane itself was new and beautiful with free WiFi and ending with the service, the stewardess were all so friendly!! The flight from Istanbul to Tlv was a two hour flight on a much smaller plain.

The flight attendants were, so polite and attentive. They walked by with a drink cart every 6 hours. Free wine, for the wino's. I had a very pleasant flight. Istanbul, Turkey - Ataturk Airport (IST) is Massive, make sure you're close to your gate! I was there in the winter and it was freezing.
