It is evident that business class flights bear few problems if any in comparison to economy seats. I had several flights with Turkish Airlines both in economy and business classes. The long distance flights are usually on time and lounges offer wonderful time for waiting. Aircraft crew are very helpful and the flight cuisine is excellent.

Flights were on time, food was good and the majority of the...

Our family of 8 people took this flight for our Turkey Tour. It is a direct flight from Jakarta to Istanbul. We had good experience flying with Turkish airlines. Seat was comfortable and service was not bad.

Flights from / to Athens (El. Venizelos) / Hanoi (Noi Bai) via Istanbul (Ataturk) were very good. Food and drinks during flights were more than average. The only problem (as usual) was delays in Ataturk airport (without anouncement) and the bad condition of the amenities (really dirty and smelly wc).

Fly from Toulouse to Dalaman with an overnight stop in Istanbul. The airline offers very good baggage allowances. Check-in was efficient and pleasant. Boarding was similar. When it came to the choice of meal they informed me it was the beef only as they had run out of the chicken option. I told them I would not bother then with...

Many destinations, good variety in meal, inflight entertainment. But organization during meal distribution and collecting meal utensils, needs to be better organized (late serving, forgeting to collect. etc). It's cheap, so I may keep flying with TA. Ataturk airport is a very important factor to consider when scheduling flight.

Plane ex-Amsterdam was an A321 and connecting A330 in Istanbul Ataturk onwards to Dubai. We flew a 737-800 twice on the way back, transferring in Istanbul Sabiha Gochen. Attitude of the flightcrew was average overall. We left AMS with 45 minutes delay, and asked several crewmembers if by any reason our connecting flight in Ataturk could be guaranteed. Nobody could/wanted...

In Feb 2016 my wife and I flew from Manchester (UK) to Johannesburg via Istanbul and returned two weeks later. The whole experience was as enjoyable as can be expected.
