I had a quick look at the LH A350 J (2-2-2 layout, with the seat similar to their A380 J). It looks like a new plane, however LH didn't do anything special for the J cabin, which seems to be their existing product.

Swiss has a very interesting staggered 2-2-1 layout on their 777 which looks to have more privacy...

Appreciate any opinions on the cabins as well as service/catering etc.

How much expectation setting needs to be done when flying these carriers vs the regular SQ experience he is used to?

He was also exploring TK via IST. Any opinions on that appreciated too.

I personally will take TK i the price is right. IST- MAD is 4 hours flight. ZRH/MUC-MAD may be lesser (3 hours?), but you wont get proper biz class (economy with empty middle seat?). I definitely prefer wide-body instead of narrow body. Even if TK is narrow body, it should be proper biz class.
