This time I want to show you what I consider to be (according to my parameters which may not be yours), which are the best seats in economy class on a Turkish Airlines Boeing 777: 11K and 11A. Due to the bulkhead, this row has more legroom than the standard rows in coach. Seats at this row can only be assigned at the airport, because they are reserved for families with babies or people with reduced mobility.
Today I’m flying from Buenos Aires EZE (Ezeiza – Ministro Pistarini Airport ) to Sao Paulo GRU on TC-LJH, a Boeing 777-300ER delivered to Turkish Airlines in May, 2016.
Bear in mind that the wing position on the 3D image that TK shows on its site to select the seat is wrong (it starts in row 12 approximately).
I had one hour to spare at the Centurion Lounge. Check out the video through this link for a more detailed review: https://youtu.be/lkkWqYqTdGI
Some comments about the video:
There were many empty seats
Safety announcement featuring Zach King
Star Alliance 20 th Anniversary video (This time I included the actual music downloaded from YouTube)
Morgan Freeman’s Superbowl 2017 and Turkish Airlines announcement (Audio downloaded from YouTube (the video has already more than 16 million views). Click on the link to watch it: https://youtu.be/p_gv6fRejLM
This plane is equipped with 2 x GE90-115B (watch and hear the engines being started).
The GE90-115B is the largest and most powerful jet engine flying these days
This flight is possible due to the fifth freedom, which allows a foreign carrier to transport revenue passengers between two foreign countries (Argentina and Brazil) as part of services connecting the
airline’s own country (Turkey). Two other similar examples are Qatar Airways on DOH-GRU-EZE, Emirates on DXB-GIG-EZE.
Tip: in your reservation you can select your preferred type of meal (i.e. sandwich). If you choose “fish only”, you will get a smoked salmon sandwich which is much tastier than the standard “cheese-
and-something sandwich” that you would get otherwise.
The flight was quite empty
I don’t know what is the BELF (breakeven load factor) for this flight, but for sure the actual LF was well below it.
As of 2018, all flights to neighboring countries (excepting Uruguay) will be moved from AEP to EZE. That will be highly beneficial to TK.
There’s my seat
One of the best (if not the best) wines that I’ve had in economy class Ancyra. Turkish Wine – Cabernet Sauvignon)
There’s a window in the toilet. In many airlines this toilet is for business class passengers.
São Paulo, the largest city in South America and we flew right over the city.
Today we are flying a shorter approach to GRU
