Candlelight dinner and heart shaped desserts in the air….

I just returned from an incredible luxury adventure to Istanbul and flew Turkish Airlines‘ amazing Business Class service. One of the highlights are the “Flying Chefs” on each flight, who personally prepare and serve the meals. The dining experience is highlighted by fine china and even a (electronic) candle on your tray table. The food is amazing and it really is like dining in a fine Turkish restaurant as you fly through the air.

Take your Valentine to Istanbul for a romantic getaway that begins on your flight! Turkish Airlines, recently voted Europe’s Best Airline for the third consecutive year, is helping celebrate the holiday with sweet treats to bring the magic of love to the air. Business class passengers, after enjoying a romantic candlelight dinner (yes candles on board!), can indulge in desserts and Godiva chocolates with their special someone.

As a special promotion, from February 10 – 28, 2014, Turkish Airlines is offering a second business class ticket at 50 percent off, with the purchase of one full price business class purchase. The offer is valid for departure from New York, Chicago and Washington D.C. to Istanbul and other Turkish cities. (Valid for travel from February 10 – May 31, 2014.Subject to availability as there are limited seats reserved for this promotion.)

Once you arrive in Istanbul, there’s no shortage of activities to create the perfect Valentine’s Day. I recommend a romantic stay at the Four Seasons Istanbul at Sultanahmet and a night cruise on the Bosphorus.
