Turkish airlines business class

Has anyone traveled on TurkishAirlines in business class? How does it compare to Delta or United business class? We're trying to decide if it's worth the extra $. Thanks for any opinions!

I hope this isn't for some itinerary which forces you way out of the way to Istanbul first.

I flew it and thought it quite good. I've not flown Delta biz class, but have flown UA including their newish Polaris biz class. I think UA biz class is fine and have always had good service. I found Turkish air to be just as good. They made a big deal with the meal, but I don't recall it being great. I also like their Econ class...comfortable seats with footrests.

I fly Istanbul-Chicago and back once a year on business and I am quite happy with the all flat sleeping arrangement and the reasonable privacy. Food is acceptable, drinks are very good and service excellent.

If it is 2+2+2 seating, I prefer one of the middle seats. Last year it was 2+3+2 and I took a window seat. Had no trouble pushing my old and heavy body across my sleeping neighbor to take a few obstacle course walks in the aisles. Obstacle course because I kept on hitting the meal, drinks or collection services in economy.

I cannot say anything on the entertainment because I prefer to read, solve puzzles, play strategy games or write.
