On Air with Turkish Airlines

Turkish Airlines caters two kinds of cabin classes: Economy and Business Class.

Turkish Airlines Reviews-EconomyEconomy –  there’s not much information online about their Economy Class, since the web page for the cabin information is malfunctioning. However, we were able to find out that this service provides seat pitches of 31-32 inches. The maximum recline of each seat is 6 inches, the seat pan adds an additional 1.5 inches with a total recline of 7.5 inches.

Official Website and Mobile app

Though what we’ve noticed is that they are promoting the movie, Batman VS Superman Dawn of Justice since it keeps showing hashtags to #FLYTOGOTHAM and #FLYTOMETROPOLIS.

But it’s noticeable that the official web page of the flag carrier of Turkey is not modernized. The font sizes are terribly small. Overall, it’s not user-friendly.

How about for smartphone users? Yes, Turkish Airlines has a mobile version of all these PC services. The mobile app is available in the App Store, Google Play Store and Windows Store.

Turkish Airlines Reviews of Customers

Turkish Airlines managed to gain a mixture of loyal and disappointed customers. According to satisfied customers, the in flight service was perfect with extra legroom, the flight attendants were attentive and the flight itself was fun.

The main complaints are directed to their food and beverage distribution. One couple was disappointed because their children were not given food at all during their flight. Is this true or is the customer just going out of his way to tarnish the airline’s reputation?

  1. Fantastic seat. Thanks for smiles of staff, great service and confort. I’m not always satisfied, but i have to admit that this flight was really good on the leg HKG to IST. The second leg, IST to BRU, was a complete other story – near the disaster. So bad that this airline is not stable to offer consistant, stable and without surprise good experience. Will write separate report about that connection flight IST to BRU.
