Turkish apparently cutting Premium Economy in favor of Business Class

In a shift which seems to be counter to the industry trends Turkish Airlines is apparently cutting their Comfort Class Premium Economy product currently offered on their 777-300ER long-haul aircraft. I say apparently because I only have one source so far and it is in Turkish and I don’t know its reliability. But the report is out there. New deliveries will not have the Comfort Class product and the existing planes will see the seats removed as they cycle through maintenance in coming months. The reconfigured aircraft apparently will have larger business class cabins based on customer satisfaction with the flat bed offerings there.

I’ve only heard good things about the Comfort Class product. A shame it is apparently going away.

  1. Seth….hopefully they will release more seats for Star Alliance award redemptions….they sure are stingy with their awards seats.

  2. I purchased TK’s Comfort Class for a flight earlier this year and loved it. It’s a great compromise as it eliminates the legroom limitations of economy class.

  3. It is ridiculous for them to drop a product, when they have just received major awards for it. The only reason I opted to fly with them and route my trip via Istanbul was because of their affordable comfort class. I asked yesterday on their facebook page if the rumours were true and was asked to phone customer service in Istanbul. So it seems there is something in it.
