Unhappy Video-report: How TK flights + turkish airports look today = COVID-measures in place

That's how Ankara airport and medium haul flights (ESB-FRA) look today with COVID-measures in place, personal hygiene kit and "new" catering standards (oh how I'm going to miss the awesome meals even on short hauls)...
Video from security + waiting area + on board a TK flight taken yesterday (with turkish audio commentary, but the pictures speak for themselfs) - click the twitter link after the small plane icon to open the 3-minute video (on twitter, account from a German news agency):

Is this a Turkish Airlines plane itself? I see no IFE plus seat type looks very different

Yep, one of thoose with old seats you hope not to receive on a fligth any more... I usually try to get an A330 to FRA/DUS to receive IFEs + just two seats in a row in Y (2-5-2) (I've never been to ESB, only IST/ADB/AYT/SAW).
I just realized LH is not selling first class any more for the next few months so they can use smaller / more uncomfortable planes, too :-(

To clarify this aircraft is not one of the older 737-800's of TK.
It is one of the aircraft leased from Norwegian in order to replace the 737-MAX aircraft while they are grounded.

These aircraft are generally used on AnadoluJet routes and the Ankara-Frankfurt route is now operated by AnadoluJet instead of Turkish Airlines.

I also have a review on this type of aircraft and it could be found here;
