    It is a shame. I paid for Comfort Class because it was a reasonable compromise for me / my client. They didn’t notice my slightly higher travel costs and I got a less exhausting flight from LAX-IST. There aren’t many companies willing to “put you in business for all international flights” anymore, at least in my line of work!

    Agreed, a real shame in general although I wasn’t too pleased with that middle seat either, but made the new IAH-IST flight much more pleasant.

    Agree, flew IAH-IST and thought the seat was great, same spacing as Biz. Shame, marketing fail.

    I loved comfort class and it felt like other carriers’ biz class — so many are copying this PC now like AC and LX — wonder if it will work for them? I will miss the TK comfort class!

    They “killed” first class and now they kill comfort class. Too bad.

    Having flown this cabin several times it will be missed. I found the seats as comfortable as any outside true premium cabins, and would say combined with the excellent meals (albeit dubious wines) it rivalled UA’s old C product! I know some complained the pitch and recline wasn’t great but I found it comfortable. Of course, on all the occasions I flew CC, the cabin was hardly half full and upgrades were being sold for a reasonable $275 or so (each) between HKG-IST and IST-LAX. In my case, I flew these segments on an extraordinarily good fare ex-HKG to LAX via IST as a MR, a fare less than normal economy, so I can see from the airline’s point of view the cabin was just not generating the $s anticipate.. My other TK flights have been in business, trying both 777 and 330 versions. I suppose it will take some time to phase out and the TK ticket office across from my condo has not removed the huge CC posters from its window!
