Turkish Airlines Creates Specialized Cabin Crew for Its Own Executives

Turkish Airlines Creates Specialized Cabin Crew for Its Own Executives
Ryan Boyd

After an unidentified Turkish Airlines official allegedly threw a tantrum while being served by flight staff, screaming “Don’t you know how I drink my coffee?” a special 100-person team has been assembled in order to make sure that Turkish Airlines officials do not get similarly upset in the future.

The specialized team will, according to Turkish aviation website Airporthaber, be trained to respond to the specific tastes and demands of airline officials so that nobody has to have the nerve to ask how somebody takes their coffee.

    This is NOT a real story, and should not be featured here. Ahval has its own political agenda, and is not taken seriously by anyone, and FT should not be promoting its “news”.

    You served me macadamia nuts in a closed bag rather than on a plate? What do you think this is, Korean Air?

    Yes another reason to NOT fly Turkish Airlines. What kind of stupidity is that?
    If the executive wants his coffee a certain, is it too much trouble to tell the flight attendant.
    Or, why not simply have it recorded somewhere reachable by the FA?

    Turkish Airlines is one one of my favorite airlines. When I fly east, I always try to make it happen on one of their flights first. Their planes have always been clean and comfortable and the crew is consistently pleasant and accommodating.

    With a worldwide population approaching 8 billion people. it’s not that hard to find a jerk Pretending you’ve done your job as a writer/journalist by writing about one indicates you’ve set an incredibly low bar for yourself.
