No Booze on Turkish Airlines? And hey what’s up with those new uniforms?

turkish airlines

Yes, it appears that Turkish Airlines will stop serving alcoholic drinks in all its domestic business-class flights, apart from six destinations. Alcohol was already unavailable on domestic economy-class flights. Critics believe that this is further proof of an increasingly Islamic crackdown on this once very Western country. The latest ban was justified by officials on non-religious grounds. They said it was due to that alcohol service in business-class flights was being eliminated because of “low demand and logistical reasons.” Of 36 domestic flights, 16 offer business-class service.

Not what you want to see

This latest in what I see as a trend has got me thinking again that heading to Africa with family in tow is probably not the best idea right now.

So once you’re on them  you can settle back and enjoy instead of freak out like you would say on Bora Bora where a salad will put you back $50. I looked up the best time to … More…
