Review: Turkish Business Class A330 Seychelles To Istanbul

The last time I flew Turkish Airlines was back in 2013, so it has been over five years. I can’t believe that’s the case, given that they fly to more countries than any other airline in the world. I was looking forward to seeing how the product has held up over the years.

We boarded through the second set of doors, where we were greeted by the cabin chief and pointed left into the business class cabin. Turkish Airlines has 62 Airbus A330s, and they have very little consistency across the fleet — some A330s have forward facing flat beds, others have angled flat seats, others have recliner seats, and then some have herringbone seats.

We were lucky to be on one of Turkish Airlines’ A330s with herringbone seats, which are their only A330s with direct aisle access from every business class seat. If the interior looks familiar there’s probably a reason for that. This is a former Jet Airways A330, so it’s similar to the one that I’ve flown on Air Serbia between Belgrade and New York.
