Well, this is a first for me. Turkish Airlines has FREE internet service on their airplanes. So here I am sitting in seat 43C, somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean, able to browse the web, check my emails, and even write a blog post.
My body is still on California time (which is around 3:30 Wednesday morning) but I am not able to sleep.
I have been quite impressed with Turkish Airlines. The seats are comfortable and the service has been quite good. Each seat had a clean blanket (sealed in plastic), slippers and a pillow.
The flight attendants then passed out toiletry kits with a toothbrush, paste, earplugs, lip balm and eye mask. I have received these kits in first or business class, but not in economy before.
Then came a small sweet treat, warm wash cloths, and a tasty several course meal and some fairly decent complimentary wine. Some of the best in-flight food I have had in some time.
Sounds pretty nice for economy. I wonder what they get in First Class?
Penny, sadly, I somehow doubt that I will be experiencing their first class service any time soon to make that comparison. Even though the flight was quite long, we were pleased with the quality of economy service.
