Turkish Airlines Istanbul, Turkey (IST) to Berlin, Germany (TXL) Business Class Review

Posted on April 2, 2013 by in Travel Deals, Turkish Airlines Review

This is a short 3 hour hop from Istanbul to Berlin. I flew Frankfurt to Istanbul last year in Business Class and was not impressed at all. It was an Economy Class product with a food item added and a couple of inches more legroom.

This A321 hoever had a nice new configuration. The Business Class seats were in a 2 x 2 confirguation and much bigger than Economy Seats. It very much looked like an American Airlines domestic First Class. It had plenty of legroom. But it was brand new!

It also featured an Entertainment system with a number of movies and TV shows. Pretty cool for a short flight.

Turkish Airlines also features a chef that serves the food and it very delicious – probably one of the best airline breakfasts ever.

My only complaint would be the limited recline of the seats.

The flight attendants were very friendly but again English wasn't their strong suit. I find that really odd – on almost all my Turkish airline flights the flight spoke attendants poor English. For an airline that advertises with 'Globally yours' a some English lessons for their new recruits should be no issue?
