After a long 6 hours transit due to my flight being rebooked, time to board to Beirut.

The agent wanted to double check my visa on arrival so I boarded last on the airplane (She wasn't convinced that I get the family visa on arrival).

 Now we are ready for the short flight to Beirut (1:50 minutes).

The plane is the A350. Its impressive that such airplane is used for such a short flight.

 It is very modern and classy and more than comfortable for such a small hop.  My seat was 14K but a man was sitting there and refused to move so I sat on the aisle seat on row 14 (I hate when people take your seat, jeezzzz).

The even have a full IFE system. I watched Encanto and it was perfect.
  
Screen was vibrant and responsive.

Meal service started and we had a small breakfast. Great meal for 1:50 flight but again, I am underwhelmed with this meal since I heard loads about Turkish catering, but still not bad.

I didn't eat much because I had stomach pain due to the stress.

Conclusion

I liked the A350 on Turkish airlines for such a short flight and I liked it ore than their A321. This route is great on Turkish to be honest and I recommend it. I will be flying Turkish Airlines again if I had too.

    Very nice to have an A350 on such a short flight! Surprised about the lower quality of the meal compared to the previous flight, but I guess it's because it's a much shorter flight than BRU-IST. Still decent since it's fresh food and definitely better than any US/EU airline would have on a 1.5h flight.

    Thanks for sharing!

    I'm sorry but it is a really poor report, especially for such a rare type in TK fleet now - no details at all. Very carelessly.

    Writing a trip report is not posting in Instagram. As for my experience, I always do it with editing dozens of photos, making some schemes, screenshots etc. It is not about not giving a damn about the process and result.
