Hello fellow A.netters,

My partner and I are planning to go on holiday in Egypt this September. We have found a great deal on both LX and TK. But, we can not decide which airline is better to fly with.

Do you have any suggestions? We look foward to hearing from you soon.

Cheers,
Suryo

Where are you flying from? Netherlands?

Frankly if its all intra Europe flying, I'd say Swiss while a good product is rather bland.
I'd opt for Turkish for the sake of a more exotic detour via Istanbul and much better meal service particularly outbound from IST.

Good part is you can collect Star Alliance miles on either carriers.

Dont forget to post a trip report either way!

I would go with TK, as I would have more chance of flying Swiss more in the future, as it's closer to the Netherlands (or Norway for me)

Hi, I've never flown with TK and only one short segment with LX so I can't really recommend one over the other. This said, if the fares are similar I'd go for the best schedule. Then, even if a stop in IST should be exciting I would also look for the aircraft type flown on the route... Have a nice trip !

I just did TK PEK-IST-CGN, and was deeply disappointed. Even the business class was grotty and dirty. They advertise the A330 as their "flagship" in terms of seats (you can see it on their website), but my seat was so sat through that I had the wires in my behind. I had to take a blanket and sit on that. The A320 was so dirty I didn't want to touch anything! I was on a miles redemption flight, but if I had paid real bucks for the business class ticket I would have been majorly upset!
A few years back I did TK IST-ADB, and that was not excellent, but much better than my recent experience!

Just did FRA-ZRH-BKK on LX last year, and they were excellent. Business class seats were dated and TV was small and malfunctioning, but the rest was great. Great service, great FAs.

In short: I'd take LX over TK any time!

Cheers

Hi guys,

Thank you very much for the useful comments and suggestions.

The die is cast. We will be flying with LX. In term of schedule, LX is more convenient than TK. In term of the aircraft type, our journey will include some firsts. So, I am excited about it.  bouncy 

Cheers,
Suryo
