In my opinion, Turkish Airlines offers some of the tastiest inflight meals in economy class. Business class dining options are excellent too. If you want to check out my other stories about Turkish Airlines, check here, and here. Here’s a breakdown of what I recently received from Paris to Singapore (via Istanbul) in economy class.
PARIS TO ISTANBUL
With a flight time of just 2hr and 35mins, I was very impressed with the inflight food offering on this sector.
The cabin crew offered a choice of beef or pasta; I opted for the beef, which came with some vegetables and rice, an entrée of yogurt with peas, and a delicious chocolate mousse.
I loved the meal; the beef was flavourful and the quantity perfect. My only gripe is that my water and part of the entrée were frozen solid.
The airline provides proper cutlery in economy class and a good range of alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages such as fresh juices.
It’s becoming rare to see airlines offer meal choices and trays like this in economy class on flights under three hours. It’s great to see some airlines still offer decent service in economy class.
QUICK LOUNGE VISIT
I visited the Turkish Airlines lounge for Star Alliance Gold customers during my transit. The lounge offered an array of food and beverage options.
ISTANBUL TO SINGAPORE
On this 11-hour trip to Singapore, the airline provided two meal services, and snacks were available from the galley if required. The first meal service offered a choice of chicken or a vegetarian option. The meal tray seemed larger and included a fresh salad in addition to the entrée of hummus. (Olive oil was provided to drizzle over the salad).
For dessert, the chocolate mousse made another appearance, and this is one of the grips of frequent travellers on Turkish Airlines. The food offered inflight isn’t changed that often and many say this is quite boring. I like to think that the airline has perfected its recipes and prefers to provide something that’s tried and tested with no surprises.
About two hours before landing, the breakfast service began. I was offered scrambled eggs with toast, roasted tomato, a side dish of cheese and olives, and yogurt with cherry. I don’t believe I have had better eggs on a flight, I don’t know how they do it, but their inflight caterer Do&Co knows how to cook eggs for economy class passengers.

I thoroughly enjoyed my breakfast and food experience with Turkish Airlines, and I still think they have some of the best economy-class meals around. What do you think?
