Turkish Airlines

Could anybody who has recently flown with Turkish Airlines confirm their baggage allowance and do you get a meal on-board?

Also do you need to provide Advance Passenger Info?

We booked through Expedia and their confirmation is not very clear.

Thanks

According to Turkish Airlines website (easy to find) the allowances are 20kgs for domestic and international flights.

I will be delighted if it is 23kgs. But.....

Weight depends on the type of ticket you have ie economy both international and domestic is 23 kg with no restrictions on hand luggage as long as it is cabin sized. Good meals on international flight and all drinks free, on domestic flights you get a cold picnic type meal with soft drinks or tea/coffee. We always try to travel Turkish even with the wait at Istanbul airport we find it less hassle than the charter flights.

I've always brought 23kg and fly Turkish Airlines at least four times a year. They are also less strict than others and tend to turn a blind eye to slightly overweight bags.

You need to provide advance passenger info to Turkish Airlines. You should be able to find reference number for Turkish and you can add necessary info through their site.

They are not as strict as budget airlines for weight.

We just flew Turkish Airlines last month - international to Istanbul then connecting domestic flight to Ankara. Our luggage allowance was definitely 23kg for both flights with unrestricted hand luggage.

Hi,

We always take 23K baggage with Turkish Airlines. Never been questioned. Also one time took a big square carboard box (instead of a case) containing a nest of coffee tables. Again no extra charge. Comfortable seats with plenty of room. Food and drink included....and I tried my best to drink them dry of red wine...but failed! They never refused to replenish my empties.

Cheers, Mx.

Hi mossiefeeder, it must depend on what type of ticket you get and who you book through (direct or otherwise) as our confirmation definitely states 23kg. Here is a copy and paste from the e-mail (I've amended the name obviously.)

Sel. 2352116933212 TK1994 meal : Vegetarian Lacto Ovo Meal Free Baggage Allowance : 23 Kg

Although we only flew last month, we did book quite far in advance so maybe they have changed it since then?
