Turkish Airlines Business Class: IST-ICN

0

This is part of the Trip Report Welcome to the Cold where I went from NYC to:

If you’re just tuning in now be sure to read how I ended up with this unique itinerary by checking out The Original Plan: The $77,000 Trip Heard Round the World, the subsequent Change Up: Riga, Latvia? and the Mongolia angle: IGLOO-GER: The Helsinki-Ulaanbaatar Trip Report.


When I fly domestic, I prefer nonstop. When I fly business class, I prefer multiple segments, long layovers, and top notch airlines. Also, when one is going to a destination that is known for its cold and smog like Mongolia, he will not be in a rush to get there. Though there was a more direct route from Istanbul to Ulaanbaatar, I opted for a more inconvenient way.

The next part of this never-ending life report is flying Turkish business from Istanbul to Seoul. In my blogger opinion, a picture is worth 1000 words, so there won’t be a text play-by-play of the entire flight. There are these great photos showing the unique touch of flying Turkish which makes it one of the better airlines I have flown.
