Turkish - any views?

Anyone had experience of Turkish airlines.

Now that I have realised that I can be creative in my routing I may give them a try for an award flight (in C class).

How do they compare with SR and SN?

Is there are online resources that compare and contrast the servcie in the Qualiflyer group airlines?

Beware, TK has left the Qualiflyer group (not the program), so they are no longer combinable for redemption http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/frown.gif

Actually they have left "the program" as they sent out Miles and Miles Cards (their FFP) to all Travelclub members.

You can still earn miles with TK on Qualiflyer but no club miles any more. And you can redeem miles for award tickets from TK.

As I wrote before it is always a pleasure to fly with TK. http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/smile.gif

have flown a few times last yr, long haul, with TK...

TK is pretty decent (though the veggie meal sucks. they seem to think that veg and vegan are one and the same)... http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/wink.gif

flying TK you would go through IST... a bit of a language trouble, if you are not quite gifted with turkish. quite managable though. see if you can get a stopover in IST....

SR is deff better, but then nothing quite
compares to SR... http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/smile.gif
