Hi Everyone,

I just have a quick question. I'm booked to fly to IST from LHR in April. Both flights are scheduled to be on the 737-800. Any chance that either flight would be upgraded to a widebody?

I know it's not such a long flight, but widebodies are always more fun

They do fly quite a variety of types - indeed, almost everything they fly comes into LHR; usually the morning flight is a widebody and the afternoon flight, an A321; I haven't seen a TK 738 at LHR (although in fairness, I'm not there that often). Fingers crossed; you might be lucky! I'm sure one of our Turkish members can give you more accurate info, particularly if you ask closer to the date.

The 738s do visit but they are probably the least common visitors these days....the A321, A320, B773 and A333 have all visited over the winter...and occasionally an A332.

I read somewhere that TK sent over 100 of their A/c to LHR in 2010 making it the airline sending most unique visitors last year (after the British Airlines of course!)

Things might change for the summer 11 schedule and the 738 might be more common - who knows - but last year most of the am flights were with the 773s.

Hope that helps.

Quoting BY738 (Reply 3):

No....this winter is as follows (most days)

TK1979....varies - often A321, sometimes B773 or A333 and occasionally A343/A332/B738/A320
TK1985 usually A320 sometimes B738/A321 and occasionally a widebody
TK1983 usually A320
TK1987 usually A320 (night stops)

But the a/c do frequently vary.

1979 will be the only chance you get to have as a widebody, the others will be 738 or A32X

1979 can be an A330, A340 or B777



The only time there is too much fuel onboard, is when you're on fire!
