Getting on-board my connection flight in Almaty International Airport (ALA) to Istanbul (IST), the aircraft serving me was P4-KDE, a newly delivered A321neo.
The flight was fully-loaded, most of them were connecting passengers.
The cabin was clean, every passengers were given an amenity kit, though it was not a red-eye flight.
The in-flight meal was generally great. The main course was fried fish with potato mash, with a side course of a middle-east styled salad. The main dish was hot enough with perfect taste. However, the salad was weird, probably was not my cup of tea.
The modern and sensitive in-flight entertainment system gave a pleasant flight experience on-board, although the choice of movies are quite limited and not too updated, but luckily I found an interesting movie for my time there.

It was generally a pleasant flight, with a comfort seat and legroom. The meal was great, but the cabin crews were not friendly enough.
