Not every airport has a first class security line and likewise not every airport has a TSA Pre. BUT you will still get your TSA Pre perks at these airports, but not first class perks. Of course if you only fly from major airport to major airport then there maybe no benefit. I have TSA Pre plus other priority options and usually just pick whichever line is ...

If you enter security through the first class line, you will not have access to TSA Pre-Check. The TSA Pre lane is a separate lane and only there you can not remove belt, shoes, jacket, liquid bag, laptop. You can not exercise your privileges in another lane.

This is specific to Istanbul (or maybe Ankara to). They want to make sure you don't have an obvious problem to enter UK or US for the cost of crossing their boundaries, kind of over helping but actually saves some people.
