If you don't know, Istanbul Airport has the best business class lounge in the world, so we started there
Final Thoughts: Turkish Airlines is one of the best in the sky. The service, food, and cabin is exquisite and their lounge in Istanbul is unrivaled (there's a golf simulator with a coach!). The food is their specialty and they do it well, so do consider a stop in Istanbul on your way to Europe. If your layover is long enough, Turkish Airlines will even give you a free tour of the city!
