Turkish Airlines Catering Master Thread | Photos, Menus & Reviews ( 2019 onwards )

Dear Folks,

As we all know, one of the best points about flying Turkish Airlines is the food that they serve onboard, so I have found it useful to create a Master Thread for catering as we could place menus, images, opinions about the food served onboard.

Also, the WIKI would give essential information about the food that would be served onboard in terms of flight time and service class. For your convenience, shortcuts for posts with images would be added to the WIKI.

When sharing a photo please add the flight number, departure time and the route so it would be possible to list them accordingly.

My credit would go to the British Airways and the Qatar Airways forum were there is a huge database of onboard catering reviews.

All FT members are welcome to share their recent meal photos ( up to last two years ) with us so this database could be useful as possible. I would also encourage you to take photos of the meals onboard on your future flight and share with us.

I would start sharing some images that I've taken about onboard meals.
