Business class should have Veg meal options by default.
Turkish Airways setzt Standards, im positiven Sinn! 😊
Food is the best airplane food ever
Long drawn out boarding process with multiple delays and unnecessary security checks. No priority for business class passengers. Poor food for business class my remote stopped working mid flight and the attendant suggested I deal with it for the remainder of the flight even though they’re were multiple empty seats in the cabin. Flight crew barely spoke English which shouldn’t happen on a international flight. Overall mediocre for the money I spent. I will stick to Qatar Airways from now on for my travel needs.
Unterhaltung könnte besser sein
Super Verflegung / Service. Mit top internationalen Kinofilmen/Musik zum sehen oder hören während des Fluges individuell für jeden einzelnen Fluggast. 30 kg Gepäck bei jedem Flug inclusive. Sehr gute Preis Leistung.

Negativ: "The best Airlines All things werde perfekt."
Positiv: "Sitzabstand in der Economy ist gut. Essen ist gut. Sehr schönes Holzspielzeug für die Kleinen. Staralliance Lounge (wenn man Zugang hat) macht die Reise nach Istanbul wert."
Negativ: "Ätzende 5 Stunden Aufenthalt im Flughafen Istanbul... Nix zu tun, nichts zu sehen. Kein Spielplatz für Kinder (ausser in der Gold-Class Lounge). Boarding auf dem Rollfeld und über die Treppe sollte bei Linienfliegern nicht sein. Häufige mutwillige Zerstörung meiner Rimowa Aluminumkoffer durch das Bodenpersonal: Dellen, Löcher, Kratzer (was zu langen Auseinandersetzungen nachträglich führt)."
Positiv: "Hatte einen Comfort Sitz und konnte zum ersten Mal meine Beine im Flieger gut unterbringen."
Negativ: "Leider kein Veganes Essen"

Positiv: "Friendly crew. Plane well maintained"
Negativ: "Delay, poor boarding"

Negativ: "10 Stunden Verspätung in Entebbe, 2 Anschlussflüge in Istanbul verpasst! Crew von Entebbe desinteressiert und muffig.Keine Entschuldigung und Entschädigung!! Crew nach Stuttgart besser und freundlicher. In Stuttgart Ankunft 23.15 anstatt 13.55. Beide Maschinen veraltet, Unterhaltungstechnik von Entebbe funktioniert gar nicht, kein Bemühen der Besatzung, auch Bordtechnik im Airbus nach Stuttgart völlig veraltet! Keine Weiterempfehlung!"

Negativ: "ENGE SITZE, Unterhaltungs-Angebot an meinem Sitz relativ instabil (stürzte zweimal ab), außerdem keine Fluginfos zu sehen, da Bildschirm zu schmal... Zwei Ausstiegs-Treppen wären hilfreich gewesen, saß ganz hinten. Boarding könnte schneller gehen, wenn man die Sitzreihen aufteilen würde nach Reihen."
Positiv: "Flugpersonal hilfsbereit, Essen nicht so gut (Nudeln mit viel Sahne-Pamp - arme Vegetarier!"
Negativ: "Enge Sitze - Und: ZU VIEL WERBUNG AUF DEM BILDSCHIRM!!! NERVIG!!! Auch der LEGO-Film ist zu laut und nervt irgendwann - warum machen das nicht mehr die Stewardessen? Dann kann man schauen oder NICHT, wenn man das ganze schon kennt! Zwei Ausstiegs-Treppen wären hilfreich gewesen, saß ganz hinten."
Positiv: "Entertainment package"
Negativ: "I paid extra money for the upgrade to sit the exit but only to be told after boarding that due to my size and age that I can’t sit on the exit aisle. Then I said okay, I’ll move if I get a refund and the the flight attendant said that they will. So then I swapped to a middle seat by the attendants directive all the way in the back. After the plane takes off, the flight attendant said that can not refund me the upgrade. I was extremely frustrated and felt discriminated because of my age and size. I demanded to sit back to my original assigned seat but they refused. Not to mention, the flight was delayed!! Unpleasant experience and a rip off."
Positiv: "food was good, and my business class seat was okay."
Negativ: "First flight (to Istanbul) delayed, and nobody cared to help with making connecting flight booked on the same Turkish Airlines (THY)! Different THY employees sent me to three (3) different places (with two suitcases in hand) at opposite ends of the huge Istanbul airport before finally pointing to the Business Lounge and causing my missing the connection. Had they directed me correctly and cared about my first delay, I would not have missed it. I lost the first-night pay at the hotel of my final destination, my friends lost their time and money on making trips to pick me up, my ailing relatives were in pieces worrying about me, and so on. In sum, a fun trip (NOT!) ... If you care for some details, here you go... They did not inform their own connecting flight about my delay. Despite issuing me a boarding pass, nobody was looking for me or announcing where I should go. I spent an hour running around the airport at THY employees' misdirections. Business Lounge revealed I was already issued a ticket for next morning's flight (without informing me via my email they had or otherwise). I then looked at their own monitor and saw a much earlier flight the same night on a partner airline. I had to point to that flight, and they issued me a ticket there. No apology, no offer of any compensation. I understand that flights may delay, and I could forgive an honest mistake in misdirection. But this was a wide-spread incompetence and utter unwillingness to help their own business class (!) customer. I can only imagine what pains the economy travelers had to endure! Just to give you a flavor, after realizing that my connecting flight was boarding (when my delayed first flight arrived in Istanbul), I asked the crew to direct me to the best route to my connection. They pointed to the gate personnel. The gate personnel who greeted us DID NOT KNOW about my connection and sent me to the opposite side of the airport without notifying the connecting flight to wait for me. No help/transport was offered. When I made my way to the connecting gate with my luggage, the flight was gone. Nobody to be found from THY around the gate. A neighboring THY gate's employee directed me to the "Care Point" desk far away. A sizable line emerged there, with only two agents working it. I asked one of them if business class was served there. They said, "Yes, get in line, please". After 30 minutes in that line, I approached a "Care Point" agent (a cruel name for no-care-whatsoever service) who told me "You need to go to the business class desk upstairs. Economy only here!" No apology, no expression of concern, yelling "Next!" when I told her that I wasted 30 minutes of valuable time in line at their direction and would appreciate her doing something to help or making sure I reach the right person. Off to the "business desk" I go... another 15-min. run in a different direction with luggage in hand. That desk could not help either...ARGHH. Do I need to continue?.."
Positiv: "Food, service, movie selection, wine selection, seats in business class."

Positiv: "Das Essen war gut. Bequeme Sitze und gute Beinfreiheit."
Positiv: "Turkish airlines gibt sich Mühe, in Economy an Business Class Standards heran zu kommen. Rosen auf der Toilette, Speisekarte, viele Filme und Musik zur Auswahl... Leider bleibt der Platz aber doch eingeengt, und die Sitze eng. Aber der Preis ist gut! Ich kann Türkisch Airlines nur empfehlen."

Positiv: "Toouch screen yeaaa :-)"
Positiv: "Attendants were very nice."
Negativ: "The seats were so close. It was like riding on a transit bus. An 11 hour flight would be nice with just a few more inches between seats.. I don't expect real comfort in economy class but just two more inches would have been nice."
Positiv: "Everything on the plane was good. For once, we flew business class and we enjoyed the experience."
Negativ: "The food was great."
