My journey started on a sunny day at the quiet Bodrum Airport.
Turkish Airlines premium passengers have a special entrance that directly leads into a private small check in area and separate security check. This is very convenient and all was handled quickly.
Directly after the security control you head up some stairs and end in the Turkish Airlines Lounge which has a nice and cozy feeling. It is on the dark side but some wall imitations and wood separators provide a nice and calm atmosphere.
Some nice snacks and non-alcoholic drinks are nicely presented on a buffet.
Just a small snack for me.
Once you leave the lounge you end up in the normal shops zone of the small Domestic terminal. Soon bus borading started with all guests onto a main bus and we were driven to our Airbus 321 waiting in the sun.
I was pleasantly surprised that the used Airbus had a comfortable and separate Business Class cabin. The seats are very nice and provide perfect comfort for such a short flight.
They even have fold-out TV screens in the center armrest.
Once boarding came to an end, a selection of welcome drinks were offered which is very nice.
Even a printed menu was provided describing the warm lunch to be served on this 1 hour 15 minutes hop.
Drink choices for the lunch service airborne were also already take on the ground.
We powered into clear skies with some nice views of the coast.
Quickly the nicely presented lunch trays were served by hand from the galley followed by a warm bread basket and the ordered drinks.
Everything tasted fine and was perfect for such a short flight.
Cabin crew was ok but did not ask for drink refills or coffee etc. So the flight soon ended with approach into IST.
We passed a lot of interesting aircrafts before parking at the International terminal. Thus resulted into deboarding via stairs where a dedicated Business Class bus quickly brought us to the Domestic Terminal Arrivals area.
Thanks for reading,
A great short Domestic flight with a perfect cabin & meal.
