    Has anybody flown on TK in business class on the 340. It says on there website that it is only the 330 that has the lie flat seats. What about the 340?

    Thanks for your post yahoo1000 – we have contacted Turkish Airlines for confirmation of your query, and will post a response as soon as we get it.

    Business Traveller replies:

    Turkish Airlines has confirmed that both the A330 and A340 aircraft feature lie-flat seats, with a 159 degree angle of recline. Hope this helps yahoo1000.


    thanks businesstraveller for the above.
    they should really update there website . people will avoid flying with them if they read the business class seat info on there website.


    I will be flying business class with TK from IST to JNB. Is it a good service ? Any comment on the service / food / comfort / crew ?


    Hi everyone!!

    As for flying with TK to JNB–you would be flying with A330/340–the C seats are a lie flat angled version of Sogerma. If you are lucky–you might find a good angle for your sleep–otherwise the seat is good for lounging.

    Regarding food service–the quality and quantity are great–presentation is good and F/A strive to give their best–the service with the trolley during dessert and digestiv service remembers of the old F class service–very nice. I would says It is one of the best C class service at the moment

    Regardng safety procedures–here is the nemesis of TK–often the crew lacks professionalism and consistency. In this point they have to improve themselves as they are not in the same level as LH or SQ.

    About communication on board–the F/A are in general not frequent in speaking English( well for my flights they definitely struggle )–but just talk to them directly and they will give their best. Often they tend to communicate with Turkish pax more than with the foreigners-but do not get initmidated–just tell what you need and they tend to it.

    Wish you a great flight !!
