The inflight breakfast served in business class was not up to the mark and the seat and leg rest was very uncomfortable .
Service was excellent and meals good except that the freshly baked and very tasty bread was too small. Take off and landing for both legs were excellent being a retired pilot myself.
2017/11/30 IST-AMS. Very little knee room and I'm only 5ft 6in (168cm). Pocket too small for even a small water bottle. Seat very narrow, so if person in B (and likely E on other side of aisle) is even slightly large-ish, they spill over into your space. View from window is good.
Terrible plane; not suitable for medium/long haul as my flight was. No entertainment and no space. Also my seat didn't even recline! These planes should be short haul internal use only.
Great service, best entertainment interactive screen and lots of movies. Great food. A bit smaller for leg room than larger planes. Still, way better than any other airline as a whole experience.
Vile business class - no tv - very disappointing.
Terrible business class seats!! Hard ! No space for my legs! I am 190 cm ! Could hardley bent my table! Food was great ! Not worth at all to pay business for this short distance from amsterdam to istanbul !
This aircraft at a "true" business class product. 20 Total seats in 2x2 configuration. (A320 earlier in the week had the "European Biz class" with middle seat folded down). I flew on 737-800 back in May and I had the "real" biz class cabin. I guess on the narrowbody fleet, you never know what you are going to get, but I find this carrier just great!
No legroom at all. I am not extremely large (1.82 m), but my knees got stuck against the seat in front of me. No fun in a 5.5 hrs flight DYE-IST (6 hrs including delay). No IFE either, just a few small overhead screens. My next leg was on another Turkish A321-200 (TK1957, IST-AMS), but that one was newer and MUCH roomier, and with personal IFE.
On flight tk1637 ist muc, seat 3A doesn't align with the window and you end up having to lean forward to see anything outside. Should be noted for window seats of this row. Aircraft was airbus 321-200
Awful seats in economy. Incredibly cramped. We were packed in like sardines. Sat for 3 hours in the heat on the tarmac because of congestion before taking off. Were not even offered a glass of water at this time. Asked staff for wine with my meal when it was finally served. Was ignored by three fdifferent light attendants. Awful seats, awful cabin, awful service. One of the worst flights of my life. Never again. Avoid at all costs.
Although the flight was pleasant and the service good , I didn't enjoy the trip so much as there was a bunch of guys who had booked about 8 rows of seats in front of me and next to me. They were noisy and really walked up and down the entire time. The airline and flight attendants themselves were excellent, just the passengers I didn't enjoy.
28F is a normal window seat on the older planes, but on the newer A321 (tailsign TC-JSN and onwards) there's a HUGE inflight entertainment box waiting for you to cut off almost half of the space originally designed to store your feet. So better avoid this seat if you have two feet and you don't want to sit misaligned for the whole flight and also forget about using the IFE box as a footrest, it has sharp edges and you will be constantly kicking the person in front of you in the back. The same applies to all window seats at least in the rear cabin (maybe to the whole plane, but I didn't check that out). But, there might be a way to produce relief yourself if you're seated behind an IFE box: The box seems to be attached to the seat with regular hexagon socket screws, so just bring a set of allen keys and the problem might be solved. Couldn't give that a burst so far but I'll keep you updated on that issue. Besides the problem with the IFE box I really like TK, they have a good on-board product and great catering, I'm only actively avoiding flights on A321s if possible.
Flight from TLV to IST. Had a different configuration from this seat map. Business class had 5 rows of 2 recliner seats on each side (not the 3 economy seats with 1 empty middle..). Pleasantly surprised. Quite comfortable for a short flight, good food (full meal-1st & main course) and good service. USB and electric port for each seat.
Best entertainment system i have utilized so far in economy class seating. Very clear, very interactive and very easy to open and stow. Also like to add in increased the interior aesthetics of this airline model.
This aircraft is very very cramped in any seat other than emergency exit if you are tall. My shoulders touched the passengers on either side of me. seats are very thin and so am I if you think it is down to my girth. This is obviously a new directive from Turkish sadly - my knees touch the seat in front. It is nit comfortable in any way shape or form. They use to use 737's which were far better.It definitely makes me want to choose another carrier..sad after 20 years
I Was Sitting In Seat 18D On An Airbus A321 From Heathrow To Istanbul. The View Was Excellent But The Stewards And Stewardesses Were Not To Friendly. I Wouldn't Recommend Turkish Airlines
I went on this plane one week ago i was in seat 24. I loved that seat because you can see the wing of the plane very well and a nice view the,lavatory's were not far and cabin crew walked up and down the plane so u can order anything u need as well as the personal screens I got.it was amazing.recommend that seat a lot.
Worst airline ive been on so far. My phones screen is larger than planes. Good thing i didnt pay the extra 2100USD for upgrade, business seats are exactly the same as Qatar airways economy seats.
Not bad everyone had a tv and the service was good.... Good job Turkish airlines!
