Turkish Airlines: Star Alliance Livery to Istanbul

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.


I’m not one to write a Flight Review for each time I cross the street. I skipped the airBaltic review from Stockholm to Riga because we survived the sturdy prop plane service. What else is there to say? The same would’ve been true of the business class flight aboard Turkish Airlines from Riga to Istanbul but for one factor: the Star Alliance livery of the plane.

Points nerds and frequent fliers alike get excited about silly things like livery. Since I had only seen but not been on board a plane with non-traditional design (no Hello Kitty yet) I had to take a few pictures to mark the occasion.

Star Alliance livery!
