Flying the 777-300ER on a 200NM trip

Post by etopsflyers » 16 Jan 2019, 16:59

Hello dear friends,

I had the chance to fly on the 777-300ER in business class between Ankara and istanbul Ataturk.
The air distance according to Skyvector is 197NM, having flown this route previously on narrow body planes I expected the flight to go even faster on the mighty 77W but it was almost identical, under 1H.
We only climbed to FL260 and did not take too long before we started our descent during which we had great views of Istanbul.
Here is a video of my flight.
Enjoy!

Impressive right?
The economy service is amazing as well with more than 200PAX to take care of.

Hello Warnernub,

Thank you for your kind comment, glad you enjoyed it!
IFE is never active on domestic flights they just keep it off.
Business cabin seating is 2-3-2 on the 777.
There is no premium economy though,only business and economy.
From what I experienced flying economy on the 330(wide body so comparable to the 777) one could fly long haul in economy with no problem, seats are good however legroom is average I would say not premium economy but not bad either.
(You can check in 24H before departure time and choose an emergency exit free of charge if you want more legroom).
.
Please stay tuned to our channel if you like it as we are going to post more flights of Turkish as well as other airlines :)
