Quoting Orion737 (Reply 7): agree with GKirk. Although TK do well at MAN, could do with using 310s because 738s are nearly always full
Actually next summer a A321 at a minimum will be scheduled for MAN.
Dublin, Ireland went up to 5x weekly. Chances are it will go upto daily soon. TK is very happy with the route.
Although not guaranteed, I know TK is pleased with its LF and yields in UK and Ireland. As far as I know they are studying GLA, EDI and BHX. Increasing frequencies to STN, MAN and trying to get a LHR slot are also looked into.

A fully loaded 321 to MAN at high weight and high temperatures in Summer at IST will be tight for range. That is the price Turkey have had to pay to stand a chance of EU membership, the unsuitable 321!
