..but they don't tell us what..  Smile

ISTANBUL, Dec 31 (Reuters) - Turkey's flag carrier Turkish Airlines (THY)
(THYAO.IS) said on Wednesday it had decided to acquire 19 new aircraft and
lengthen leases on existing planes.
The company said in a statement to the stock exchange that it had authorised
its purchasing board to start work on acquiring the 19 new planes and
additional options on three regional aircraft.


With the leases on some aircraft expiring in 2006, the THY board has decided
to lengthen those on eight Boeing 737/400s and not to renew leases on two
Boeing 737/500, the statement said.

It did not specify which new planes it would acquire.

THY General Manager Abdurrahman Gundogdu has previously said the company
planned to use leasing for some 60 percent of its planes and buy the rest,
to keep the fleet's make-up flexible.

The airline now has 65 planes and expects to need around 100 to meet flight
demand in future. But it plans to maintain a conservative stance and remain
just below this total.

The current Turkish Airlines fleet consists of 12 Airbus (Paris:EAD.PA -
News; XETRA:EAD.DE - News) aircraft, 42 Boeings (NYSE:BA - News), as well as
three RJ-70 and eight RJ-100 BAE Systems (London:BA.L - News) regional jets.

I wont be surprised if there is a sizeable Airbus A 330-200 order coming up for TURKISH AIRLINES.

If its 19 planes then obviously 7 will be for long-medium haul for replacing their A 310-300s. So 7 A 332s is a good option for that. However they might order an extra A 340 for more nonstop flights to Far East Asia-South Africa and USA-CAN (YYZ starting in May 3 times a week). So ideally, they should order 2 A 343s + 5-6 A 332s.

As for the rest, a combo of 12 Boeing 737-700 + -800s are likely to be ordered...I would say 4-5 B 737s and 7-8 B 738s!!!

I also predict the 332, perhaps 1 addl 343 and a short haul type with the 73G, 717 and EMB-190 in the running.




Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.
