If the Government of Turkey was run as efficiently and effectively as the national airline, the E.U. would be inviting the Turkey to join the club at the earliest opportunity rather than just discussing the possibility. Turkish Airlines not only dominates the domestic skies of its home country but is used effectively by many international travellers transiting through its Istanbul hubs to reach a far-flung destination for very reasonable price. If Turkish airlines comes up as the cheapest option on our price and availability display we urge you to consider it as a safe and comfortable alternative to other airlines which spend more on image marketing and less on getting their basic product and time keeping right.
