Have you ever been sick on a flight? Not the sick bag type, but the type where you need a doctor?
I admit, I had a terrible flight one time from Jacksonville, Florida to Tampa, Florida where I got sick. The flight was one of the bumpiest flights I’ve ever taken.
This flight was back in early 2000s on a quick flight from Jacksonville with the then Continental Airline partner who was flying King Air Turbo Props. There was a huge storm over all of Florida that was causing really bad turbulence. As we approached Tampa, we could see the wave of rain approaching from the west. The pilot cockpit door was open, this gives it away that it was pre-911, and I could see straight through the front window of the aircraft. We approached landing, but just as we crossed over the highway, the pilot pulled up and turned right to divert to Orlando. Once in Orlando I almost kissed the ground. Instead of flying from Orlando, I got my back and rented a car for the quick 1 hour drive back to Tampa.
But I’ve never been sick enough to need a doctor’s attention. Turkish Airlines Miles & Smiles program is incentivizing Doctors to fly with them by providing 5,000 bonus miles for signing up to the Miles & Smiles program.

I’m thankful I’ve never been terribly sick on a plane flight. If I was, I’d be grateful for a Doctor onboard.

I just wonder if this promotion becomes really popular if Turkish Airlines flights will start to look like the video below.
