This was the first of two flights on the day, and honestly the one I was least looking forward to. I was just personally looking forward to our long haul flight back to Boston a little more. It’s also a short-haul flight and European carriers are known to use a EuroBusiness model, which is a glorified economy. That being said, I did have a great experience on my short-haul flight with Turkish Airlines last month. They have a proper business class on their 737, instead of the one seat blocked off cabin like most other European carriers.
I had been looking forward to this flight since I booked in back in September. Turkish Airlines is highly regarded as one of the best airlines in Europe, if not one of the best in the world. They’re particularly known for their food, and believe it or not I actually enjoy airline food. To be fair though, there’s not a whole lot of food I don’t like. Did the flight meet my expectations? We’ll see!
I loved our two months in Taiwan, but I would be lying if I said I wasn’t excited to leave. Not because I was sick of the country, but because I had two business class flights on Cathay Pacific to enjoy. Not only that, but Breada and I had our “tour de lounge” planned for Hong Kong International Airport and I was super excited about that as well. Needless to say, we had quite the day ahead of us.
