Today, Turkish Airlines has released a photo of its first Airbus A350-900 (TC-LGA) painted in full livery. As a reminder, Turkish Airlines has placed a firm order for 25 A350 XWBs plus 5 options.
TK’s A350s will also feature the new Business Class product (layout 1-2-1) which debuted on the 787-9 Dreamliner (see our trip report to Antalya and back). Made by Stelia Aerospace, the new Business Class seats have a pitch of 44 inches / 1,11m and turn into fully flat beds. Every passenger has direct aisle access, and the in-flight entertainment system boasts 18 inch / 45 cm full HD screens.
The A350-900s will offer 32 seats in Business Class and 297 in Economy. If all goes to plan, Turkish Airlines will receive 5 Airbus A350-900s in 2020, 4 in 2021, 8 in 2022 and the remaining 8 in 2023.
