Thanks for the report!

I totally agree with most of your observations. I fly TK a lot, and this year I flew 7 J segments on their 77Ws and can not complain. I have to say, the soft product was even better couple years back, last year they started cutting back. There is a chance that they will raise the standards in the near future when they become more profitable.
Also, I am not sure if the switch from Do&Co to SATS is a done deal. TK wanted Do&Co to pay for the new facilities at the new airport, Do&Co might still do that. Whatever the case, I hope they will keep and raise their service standards.

You know, Austrian still uses the fantastic Do&Co....
...and offers ALL AISLE ACCESS! Well, at least in their 767s. The 777s just offer "Mostly Aisle Access."
I've been quite happy with it!
I flew TK's 50min DLM-SAW Business Class in August, and IST-PRG Business Class last month and it was on par with ER Business Class servings. Not sure what is going on with DEL, but even my wife was really surprised that we got an incredible full meal on a 50min flight.
I do not think TK will go to aisle-access from window seat or will get rid of 3 in the middle. Turkish Business pax, in my observations, tend to be mostly couples traveling together and not single men with laptops. That is why I always opt for aisle seat in the middle section and not worry about the views.
