Posted (5 years 9 months 3 weeks 3 hours ago) and read 29798 times:

Skyliners is reporting today that Jet Airways, for some time being rumoured of being keen on offloading some of its its Boeing 777-300ERs is selling or leasing 3 Triple Sevens to Turkish Airlines. I cant find it mentioned here on this forum so far so I thought its interesting news that an airline is indeed dumping 773s for the first time.

Cue a horde of DL fanboys claiming DL should get them!

Great move for TK BTW (if true).

Lovely plane in the TK livery, although I'll miss them at LHR. Best looking 777s around in my opinion.



What do you mean you dont have any bourbon? Do you know how far it is to Houston? What kind of airline is this???

Are these the three Wiki says they have on order, or are the canceling those and reducing their existing fleet from 10 to 7?

I'm guessing their traffic is either falling or never grew to the level they were planning?

This has been rumored for a while.
If this is true, I wonder where TK will use them, especially during the slow winter season, which will start in January. What will TK do with them till May, June when things gets busier.
This will mean another type for TK on top of;
A310, 319, 320, 321, 330, 340, B 737-400, 737-700, 737-800.

Realistically, that's only 5 types you've listed. If TK has plans to eliminate the 310 and older 737, that'd be three types, plus the possibility of the 77W.

You can make that 4 as the A320 and A330/340 family have similar cross crew qualifications. As you have stated as well the A310 and 734 will eventually be gone too, making the number of types just 3, including the 77W.

The A310s and 734s are on the way out anyway. How many of these do the still have? A handful of each?

-The 4th 310F just received by TK. Remaining 3 pax 310s might end up being Fs also. So 310s will be around in F form for few years to come.
-At least 6 x 734s leases just got extended till 2015. TK now has 9 734s flying for its LCC AnadoluJet. Last news 2 SkyEurope and 2 Asterius 737-700s to replace 4 734s

Jet Airways is in trouble and simply tries to reduce capacity which it increased too fast. The birds will find a new home immediately. We are talking about an airline problem here, not about a problem related to the aircraft.

Now if Air Canada, Air France, Cathay, Emirates, SIA or "dumped" any 77Ws - that would be breaking news.

They cannot fill them. If anything they need to consolidate the routes and drop to A330 service only.

 checkmark  Sadly, world wide demand is plummeting and with the over-expansion of service to India, there is no choice but to cut the offering.

Hi,

make that IST-JFK, IST-ORD, IST-AMS, IST-FRA, IST-LHR 3 weekly.
On holidays they can nearly fly to every city in Germany.

PS: But that are still rumours, no?

Good one, better yet any one of TKs domestic RTs to German cities.

More seriously, the planned GRU routed could benefit if it can be done nonstop with the 777.
As always JFK could be one option. More likely China frequencies could use this bigger plane since TK can't get more slots.

Also TK always wanted to fly to IAD and YYZ if they can get the rights. ORD could go daily being a Star hub.
Lets see how it goes.

I was thinking the same. In due time I assume TK will retrofit them with 2 class I guess.

Is there a holdup as far as the rights are concerned? With YYZ being a Star hub and the growing tendency for the Canadian govt to open up our skies, I would think this should be a logical move endorsed by both countries (and the major int'l airlines in each). Let's hope it happens soon.

Yes there is. According to info I read here at a.net from member "Laxintl" for years TK wants to fly to YYZ, but Air Canada is against that, since they will loose business to a non-stop. AC is happy with just carrying pax to Star hubs in Europe instead. I think Canadian gov. offers Montreal to TK.

That's unfortunate. I think AC could definitely benefit if they choose to code-share or alternate service. But AC is not known for its overflow of innovation at times. Knowing our govt, they probably offered Mirabel to TK.
