Turkish Airlines recently celebrated International Cabin Crew Day at Birmingham Airport, by rewarding their hardworking staff with goodies on board a flight back from Istanbul.
The airline got into the spirit of the day by presenting cabin crew with chocolates, flowers, a book of Shakespeare's plays and a selection of Orchestra of the Swan CD's from Mozart to the lesser know Austrian composer Hans Gal.
Local children from the Birmingham area boarded the Boing 737-800 aircraft on Sunday 31st May, to surprise the crew with gifts just after it landed from Istanbul.
