I checked SeatGuru before I booked this flight to make sure it had lie flat seats. When I went on the mobile site, I didn’t see the description that confirmed this to be true. Could this be another equipment change like Lufthansa (see Lufthansa Equipment Change: BRU-MUC)? I waited in angst to see if, post a night in Barcelona (see For One Night Only: Barcelona Party Guide), it would linger on.
My anxiety was for nothing. I quickly saw the beautiful sight of pod seats. While the upholstery could use some work, I paid it no attention as I prepared for my slumber.
One tiny one.
I was freezing but was too tired to ask for a blanket. Graciously, the flight attendant wrapped me in one as I slept.
The chef walked by and greeted everyone. The hat is silly.
The mezze wasn’t as good as I recalled it to be on a previous Turkish flight (see Turkish Airlines Business Class: IST-ICN). It was nothing compared to Emirates (see Emirates Shower Class JFK-DXB: One More Time).
The Turkish meatballs were decent. Still, business class food seems to be going down hill.
Even with no mattress pad, I slept like a hungover baby.
Besides the kind woman bringing me a blanket, the service was impersonal. It could be the language gap but, “You? Drink?” is too brash.
We landed on time but we taxiied for an eternity. I took two mini naps and we still hadn’t reached the gate. It was at least twenty minutes of taxiing. Good thing I had hours to go in the Turkish Business Class Lounge.
I came for sleep. I got it. That’s all I wanted.
