We took off in a short delay of 15 or 20 minutes.

Movie was screened after takeoff but after few minitues the movie stopped and then map and ads was screened.

Choices for the dinner were beef meatballs(kebab) or chicken, both with rice.

The meal and beverages service started few minutes after takeoff but it took almost all flight!
A woman who was sitting in the emergency exit row stopped the meal cart for a long time because she wanted to taste drinks and wines and delayed the meal service for about 5 rows.
Some passengers didnt get drinks or buns and when the crew got to my row the beef option ran out, so I got the chicken option which was the only good thing about this flight.

    Great report! TK just seems hit or miss sometimes.

    A woman who was sitting in the emergency exit row stopped the meal cart for a long time because she wanted to taste drinks and wines and delayed the meal service for about 5 rows. -- Haha...did she think she was in Business class...how tacky.

    Nice bonus pics. Thanks for sharing!
