With so many options for long-haul international Business Class, it can be hard to stand out from the crowd. There are only so many ways to offer a flat bed, good food and fine wine. Turkish Airlines separates itself from the pack by offering a true foodie experience, especially on their long-haul international flights. Each flight carries a flying chef, complete with chef's toque, who consults with each Business Class passenger on the menu, then prepares and helps serve the food. And that food is a tantalizing array of Turkish delights, including hot and cold mezzes (appetizers) and restaurant-quality main dishes. All this is paired with a respectable wine list, excellent service and seats that turn into flat beds.
Here's a look at the mouth-watering array of food offered during my recent flight from Los Angeles to Istanbul.
