Turkish Business Istanbul Beirut Flight Review is part of the ANA, Take Me ‘Round the World Trip Report.
One more plane until I arrived in Beirut. This time there would be no lie flat (see Turkish Business Barcelona to Istanbul: Glad to Lie Flat). Granted, the flight was only two hours, but the lack of lie flat puts a damper on the Booked! ANA RTW: 22,000 Miles in Glorious Business booking.
Nicer than the dreaded 737 but nothing special (see Ethiopian Business JNB-ADD: The Worst Flight Experience).
I’m convinced that Turkish’s service isn’t intentionally poor. It has to be the language barrier. Like my previous flight, I was curtly asked, “You?, food?”
How many calories do you reckon I’ve had on flights alone this trip? Surely, it has been more than my entire time in Sardinia (see Travel Anxiety Sucks: Can It Be Prevented?). I went with the Western option and had more food than I needed.
Call me spoiled but business class, especially short haul, does nothing for me. I could go back to Peasant, put my head against the window, and care less (see The Kama Sutra of Airplane Sleep: Surviving a 17 Hour Flight). It’s the ground product which includes quick check in, fast track security, and lounge access (see New Turkish Airlines Lounge Review: I Miss Chuck E. Cheese), that makes business worthwhile.
Now that you read the Turkish Business Istanbul Beirut Flight Review, read all of the ANA, Take Me ‘Round the World Trip Report. Your boss won’t care.
