Hi, I flew Turkish recently in Business Class on a long haul flight.
All in all it pretty good. The seats are flat doubles, with a fixed footrest at the end.
I slept very well on the two overnight flights I had on Turkish.
Food is ok, depends on the destination. The food is better on longer flights to business destinations
than it is to leisure destinations. I went IST to MLE (Male, Maldives) and the style of service was
their regional food rather than long haul food.
The do potentially have three different types of long haul business class seat:
(1) TC registered 777s. They will have the fully flat double seat with a triple in the middle.
Still the seat is very comfortable to sleep on.
(2) VT registered 777s. These are operated by Jet Airways, however, I think they will be gone in
six months time. These have a flat / direct aisle acccess business class seat which is good.
(3) A330-300s: They have the same flat seat as the TC 777s.
(4) A330-200s: They have a 60" pitch business seat thats not great
(5) A340-300s: They have a different 60" pitch business seat thats not great either.
85% of Turkish's long haul fleet have the flat double seat and that will only increase as
A340s and VT 777s are removed from the fleet.
