what cabin class?
Can talk only about a number of TK medium haul flights DUS-IST yet, have used both eco and biz.
The very best I can say about TK is the outstanding quality of meals, also in eco.
Seating in eco is okay (mint leather surface) - but in Biz many cabins still come with angled seats; which was okay in a 4 hrs leg, but is a big drawback to me for long hauls - even since their european based geo-pricing is not amongst the hot deals often.
No clue about TATL hauls, but in my DUS-IST flights they were more often delayed [1-3 hrs] than in time.
Overall rating: If you can get a good deal, no worries to go for it.
Thanks for the feedback. It would be in economy and on a long haul flight.
thanks for the link
Just flew them from JFK to IST roundtrip last week and found them to be very good. Assuming the flights, fares and schedules you're comparing are comparable, I would definitely go with Turkish over a US based carrier. The inflight service was very professional and friendly and the food was plentiful and quite good. The aircraft used was a 777-300 with individual IFE monitors at each seat with VOD. Check-in process at both JFK and IST was a bit chaotic and boarding was first come first served after business class was called. Departure from JFK was on time and a slight departure delay from IST, but an on time arrival. Have you checked El Al non-stop from JFK or Newark? I found their service on the ground and in the air to be very good, but their IFE not so great.
interesting review and nice read.
Thx for sharing
Thanks for this thoughtful reply.
We did LHR-IST-AYT recently in economy and it was really good. Short / medium business class isn't worth the premium.
I do not fly with them often because our loyalty program is with another carrier, but I have never had a poor experience. I am very impressed with the service on the flight. Food and service are much better than US carriers.
I have had some small problems booking from the US. For some reason I have difficulty finding customer service people who speak English. Online reservation system works well.
If you have a good price for your flight I would certainly take them. My experiences have been excellent.
