Hi,
I am flying to IST from London's Heathtow Airport on 19/12/05 at 07:55 in the morning. Is there any chance I will be flying on the new 737-800 TC-JGG. Any insiders who can check this ? If I do I promise to take pictures and post it on here  Smile

Final equipment routing assignments are not planned that far ahead. Equipment is shuffled all the time particularly amongst the many aircraft that remain overnight at Istanbul.

By the way, I just checked on Amadeus and it says that the GLA-AMS AMS-GLA legs of my flight are going to be on F100s. Are KLM likely to keep to this? Are they more predictable with aircraft than THY?

I must say I am suprised that the 737-800 is used on such a high profile route like LHR-IST. I would have expected the old A310 or even A340 on that route. LHR is a key destination for TK and I would have thought the capacity of a wide body would be used.

They use whatever makes sense lead wise. I have been on a 737-800 LHR-IST squeezed by 2 other people in the last rows. I have also took the A310-300 on a Monday morning flight with lots of Britons spending the weekend in IST.

Once in a while you will also get a 340 to serve to route. I even remember seing 340 in the IST-MAN route. I was told this was due to a very profitable one time cargo load that dictated the use of the biggest aircraft.

Hi,

Not totally related to the subject but does anyone know when the A332(s) will start flying to JFK?

I'll be on a TK bird on the 26th of this month and have my fingers crossed for a A332 (though A343 is what appears in the timetables).

Thanks.

IST-LHR is served 3x daily, with two of the services normally operated by the 738s and the 3rd one by an A310. THY is quite adept at swapping capacity to allow for larger aircraft as required by demand, hence why the A340 is seen quite regularly at LHR.
As comparision BA operates 2 daily services on the route, an A320 and B767.
