The journey from Paris to Istanbul was wonderful. The price was, in my opinion, good value and worthwhile compared to other airlines. The staff were very friendly, helpful and extremely respectful of your guests. They always had a big smile on their faces and handled the requests and concerns of their passengers with great interest. I also arrived in Istanbul on time, as the departure and landing took place according to schedule. The timetable was therefore adhered to. The catering was excellent, as the meal consisted of unique and delicious Turkish dishes. In addition, the air-conditioning was perfect and there were no temperature fluctuations. There was also the opportunity to enjoy the breathtaking view through the windows. However, the films, series, music and games for entertainment were not up to date and I didn't have much choice. The hygiene conditions were unfortunately poor, as the toilets, composting toilets and seats were not clean and tidy. In addition, the seats were not cosy and comfortable. I had no legroom. But overall the trip was great because of the price, the catering and the excellent service!
Pro
IconDelicious food
Cons
IconRude pilot
The journey from Paris to Istanbul was pleasant. The flight took off on time and my seat in Business Class was comfortable. I particularly liked the way the seats were furnished. The wifi was excellent, but there was no power socket. Food and drinks were often served. The aircraft and the WCs were clean and well maintained. The service was friendly and attentive. The price-performance ratio was reasonable, but the pilot was very unfriendly and annoyed.
