Turkish Airlines Business Class (Many Routes)

I'm back from a whirlwind trip to Dubai, Oman, Glasgow, London, and Amsterdam. Ya know, a typical relaxing vacation. It was great trip and I was even able to meetup with a couple of STTP Premium members in Amsterdam.

It's good to be back at it with the newsletter though, so let's dig into it!

I'm seeing business class award space on Turkish Airlines 4 on a bunch of routes. Each route at least has space from October through January of next year, though some have space starting in July or even as early as May.

I'm also seeing space on routes that utilize the Boeing 787-9 with Turkish's latest business class seat/cabin. Still, even on the older business class product, it can be a great way to get a family or group of friends on the same flight.

Now, let's get into the award space!

Flight Experience

The star of the show is the inflight catering and the lounge in Istanbul. While inflight food can be tough to get right, Turkish has a rep for doing just that.

On the Boeing 787-9, Turkish offers 1-2-1 seating with lie-flat seats. Overall, it's a nice seat. If you're like me and have wide shoulders, it might feel a little snug up top but it's still a comfy seat.

On the Boeing 777, you'll have 2-3-2 seating. I generally only suggest this for couples and families or groups of friends as only some seats have direct aisle access. Of course, if you have it, then someone has to climb over you.

On the Boeing A330, you'll find 2-2-2 seating. Slightly better than the 777 but still not quite as nice as the 787-9.

Still, both aircraft have comfy seats and you still get the same great catering and lounge access.

Bottom Line

I absolutely loved Istanbul and highly recommend a visit, especially if you're a history nerd. There's also plenty of great food to try, great views to take in from a rooftop bar, and make sure you enjoy a full Turkish breakfast.

Happy booking!
