Hello,

This report will be talking about my flight on Turkish Airlines from Brussels to Istanbul on the way to Beirut.

Brussels airport I find it efficient and nice to fly from (based on my experiences) . The flight was delayed 1.5 hours and then with only notice on screen, they changed the gate.

After a long boarding process, we proceeded to the airplane.

The bird for today was A321. It is an older plane but well maintained.

The seat was normal economy seat. Legroom was good but nothing exceptional.

The flight was full and had several destination travelers but that normal since Istanbul is very  international transit hub.

The IFE has a great selection on movies and music. The IFE works while still on the ground even. The flight attendants forgot to put headsets on my seat, I took the ones of the lady next to me.

45 minutes into the flight, Meal service started. I ordered the vegan meal and I got it served. 

The meal was Beans in Tomatoes (just like how my mom prepares it). It was yummy and satisfying. The appetizer was also same meal which I found it weird to be honest. 

To be honest, I kind of feel a bit underwhelmed by the catering after all the buzz that I heard about Turkish Airlines Catering, but still ok.
 
After we got a Coffee or Tea service. Its ok.

The rest of the flight was relaxing and I was watching "Death on the Nile movie".

Conclusion

The flight was nice but nothing sooo memorable. I liked my flight, comfortable seat, great IFE selection and good food. I feel it can be better but still better than most European airlines for sure. I will fly them again and maybe I will try their business class because they offer reasonable prices between Brussels and Istanbul. Will repeat.

    Nice report once again. Catering looks good as always on TK. The overall experience with IFE and hot meals is definitely better than what you'd get on a European carrier, as you mention. Thanks for sharing!
