This is a typical 737 which is fine for short flights, but for a long flight like IST-JRO (9:25 hr), it is a killer. Turkish Airlines keeps the plane extra warm, so it is very uncomfortable sitting in a hot box for so long. It is cooler in the rear near the lavatories, but seat 18D in the middle section is much too warm. Also they do not serve cold drinks, even if you ask for ice, you only get 1 ice cube which melts right away. It may be better sitting closer to the rear of the airplane where you can get up and stretch and try to cool down. Be prepared to spend the next 9 hours panting because they seem to like it hot.
Don't pay for extra legroom on window or middle seat in this row. Very limited 'extra ' legroom. Isle seat is OK as you can stretch your legs into the isle
On my flight seat 26a was the last row of the aircraft on the left hand side. Seat pitch was great and was at least 32 inches, possibly 33 inches. I am 6ft 1inch tall and had lots of legroom. The seat had a full recline as the wall behind was not close.
Note well that 9A on 739 does not have a window... Just a vast expanse of sidewall plastic!
Business class seats are very comfortable. These seats recline more than 6 inch. They are nearly similar with Turkish airlines 777-300 comfort (premium economy) class seats.
Really good I like the entertainment systems and it was a good experience. IST-LGW
Seat 04A was so cool for me. Because You have 3 windows to look outside (Especially while you're eating your meal *-*). Also You can see all seats.
