Re: Turkish Aviation October 2019

I just returned home after a couple of flights with TK (2x long-haul and 2x short haul, all in C) and wanted to post some updates: - Taxi at IST was 7-12 minutes per flight = very reasonable - Good temp at IST, not at all hot as it was in May - All flights were excellent, really no complaints what s...

Re: Turkish Aviation July 2019

I wonder if it’s too late to fix? Have TK execs even tried the seats before ordering??

Re: Turkish Aviation July 2019

Regarding b787 biz seats. I don’t get how anyone can be surprised that the seats have gotten bad reviews given that these are the same seats used by SQ regional. Those seats have gotten massively bad reviews from many good sources and I’ve seen a lot of comments on posts of TK B787 C that the seats ...

Re: Turkish Aviation June 2019

Does anyone know when TK will launch their new Versace amenity kits, announced early April?

Re: Turkish Aviation October 2018

Just wanted to say that I recently returned from ARN-IST-DXB-IST-ARN in business class (and will be traveling in TK C ARN-IST-IAH-IST-ARN starting this Thursday). Got a new A330 three legs and a pretty worn-down A321 but with nice recliner seats on the last. A couple of comments: - TK business conti...

Re: Turkish Aviation September 2018

Read two reviews now of the new regional C seats and both were unfavorable in terms of seat comfort and space. As expected (for me) but a bit sad... Sorry, but where to read those 2 reviews? I can't find one of the two tests now, but here's the other one: https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/turkish-air...

Re: Turkish Aviation July 2018

I had a recent flight IST-ARN-IST. Surprisingly for a 3hr plus flight, no IFE on a very aged 738. They had the new on board wifi installed but no power outlets on board and you apparently have to download the TK IFE app before you're on board so not much use. On the way back, this time a very old 3...

Re: Turkish Aviation July 2018

Is it just me or do these new regional C seats look like a huge downgrade from the current recliners?! The current recliners are IMHO super-comfy with huge pitch, while this new seat just looks like a typical intra-US ”first” seat with standard pitch?

Re: Turkish Aviation January 2018

Hi all! Long time reader, first time poster. Thanks all to this truly fantastic forum! I live in Stockholm, Sweden and my base is ARN. Since I really, really like TK C, I try to fly them as much as possible on flights to Asia and the US. However, I tend to end up in older A320s with a blocked middle...
