Do not remember any of my flights in the last 2 years taking off on time. There is always a delay and funny enough they can send you message saying your flight time has been changed to 30 min earlier and after that delaying for 75 min. The only plus they have I think their food and beverage service that...

The #1 reason to fly Turkish Airlines is the business class lounge in Istanbul: to paraphrase Crocodile Dundee if he were talking to any other airline brandishing their lounge, "That's not a lounge, THIS is a gourmet restaurant with theme park!" The lounge covers an acre or more, with numerous centers for different styles of food, plenty of comfortable seats,...

It felt like flying in business class in the old days before 9-11. Excellent service and perfect food, served by a chef who looked like one. This was absolutely a level above any other regular economy flight. Comfortable seats, but with relugar legspace. Departure and arrival on time.

JFK to TLV via Istanbul. My first experience of Turkish. Check-in at JFK's grubby Terminal 2 was fast. The A330 aircraft was clean and the journey uneventful. Meals were tolerable though they ran out of choices right at the start (why bother with a menu?). Istanbul transit was crowded, messy and claustophobic. Turkish Airlines' transit counter was singularly unhelpful and...

I flew with Turkish Airlines for the first time in March and was very impressed. The flight from Birmingham to Istanbul was 4 hrs and the plane had tv's in the back of the seats showing a good selection of films, games and music.
