No problems

The weather in Istanbul was pleasant and warm. It was nice to see that it was just as beautiful in France. For this flight I was on an Airbus A320...

Systematic overbooking

Tried online check-in 24 hours in advance of departure - no seats available.
Arrive at airport 3hrs early - attempt self-service kiosks - no seats available.
Queue for 2 hours - no seats available.
Placed on standby - at the end of boarding no seats available.

Service from TA staff - rude and unhelpful.

Had to queue to get onto the next flight for over an hour again. Girl dealing with my request sat chatting on WhatsApp instead of apologising and actually engaging with me.

When I challenged her on it, her colleague told me that "they were humans too" - it's a shame TA did not apply the same principle to me.

Put in a nearby hotel - had to get up at 4.30am to catch my flight (which departed 45 minutes late).
All in all, about 19 hours of travel time.
Will never fly Turkish Airlines.

Avoid, avoid, avoid.

Just as unpleasant

The return flight, AF1591, was just as disappointing. The Airbus A319 was turned up OK… but packed out, with very cramped seats, and no in-flight entertainment available. The cabin crew were a bit pleasanter than on the outbound flight, but the food was pretty much revolting. The captain didn't provide any information during the flight. The baggage processing at arrival, by contrast, was perfect. I won't be using Air France to fly to Istanbul again, that's for sure!

Espace pour les jambes ridicule mais personnel toujours avenant

Le vol retour fut plus problématique qu'à l'aller. Les sièges étaient plus confortables niveau coussins, mais l'espace pour les jambes était...
