Turkish Airlines Lounge, Istanbul Airport
Landing at Istanbul Airport around 11:30pm and parking in a remote stand, it was already 12 midnight by the time we reached the lounge.
Boarding, Gate 704
Aircraft, Boeing 777 named Ortaköy
Unfortunately, the IFE control was not working so I informed one of the flight attendants about it and I was told that they would reset it.
A few minutes before 2am, one of the two inflight chefs came to offer the menu card and beverage list.
At 2:15am, the inflight chef working on our side of the cabin came to take our main course order and I chose the seafood meal. It was my first time to see two inflight chefs working in the business class cabin (they only had one a few weeks ago on our flight to Panama) so I had to ask him why they were two on this flight. I was told that one inflight chef is not enough. It makes sense since the business class cabin on their Boeings have more seats than on their Airbus we flew on to Panama.
As this was a Boeing, there was also wifi connection 👍
Moments later, headphones, amenity kits and newspapers were offered.
Take off went smoothly at 2:40am and moments later, we were airborne.
Moments later, hot towels were offered and then, our table was set up.
To end the meal service, bottles of mineral water were offered.
Landing at Singapore Changi Airport
Around 5:12pm, the captain came on the PA to give us updated flight information and that we would be landing in 20 minutes.
I've been flying quite often with Turkish Airlines in business class lately and just like my previous flights with them, there are good and not so good things 😉 The food was phenomenal as always, thanks to DO&CO catering. The free wifi and the seats that turn into fully flat beds were also very nice. Unfortunately, the IFE controls were not working, the breakfast main course was not the one I ordered and they also forgot to serve my winter tea. Still, it was an enjoyable flight overall since our economy class ticket was very cheap (about 3400SEK where we used our Elite Plus voucher to upgrade in business class) and we got to enjoy a great business class product out of it 😍😉
