Live: First revenue tk 787-9 flight - trip report

Today I would be flying on the first revenue Turkish Airlines 787-9 flight from Istanbul Airport to Antalya Airport. I would add live photos and comments onboard the flight ( if onboard Wi-Fi works without an issue ) and at the airport(s) for lounge, departure and arrival experience.

I have created this few hours before departure. I would be leaving my place in 1 to 2 hours and head to the airport.

I hope you enjoy the detailed review of the Business Class cabin of the Turkish Airlines 787-9.

Yesterday, Monday morning, the journey had started with an OLCI error and I was unable to check-in for my flight to Antalya and respectively for the return as well due to a technical error. I called the Turkish Airlines hotline and they told me that there is nothing to worry about as my seats were already allocated and the issue was a general issue not specific for my case.

Sad to say that TK started cost cutting

Thanks a lot for sharing! So it seems 8A and 8K are not ideal for viewing.
Do you maybe have some photos of 2A/K, 4 A/K or 6A/K?
