Anyone flown Turkish/Ethiopian?
Basically the options I'm finding at the best rates (business class) are both Star Alliance partners:
- Turkish Airlines
- Ethiopian Airlines
I haven't been to Turkey in a few years (last time was on a cruise) I have family members who have hesitations about flying via Istanbul. Haven't flown Turkish Airlines but see they are using the 777.
Ethiopian reviews seem okay- looks like a Dreamliner and a minimal connection via ADD. A few of us have been to Africa so no hesitations there but again some mixed reviews.
One member of our group found crazy cheap flights with Saudia Airlines (as in $2600 in business class flying via Jeddah). I know they don't serve alcohol which isn't a huge deal to us- the reviews though are horrible and given my relationship with Star Alliance I rather stay with them.
If anyone has direct experience with one or more of these airlines/this route please let me know. I have to coordinate this with 10 family members who are driving me crazy with different opinions.
