I was watching the World Cup in my hotel room the other day and saw this advertisement, and thought it was awesome!! Feel like they did a good job with this one, just the right amount of cheese, unlike their Kevin Costner ads.

"We are Turkish Airlines, we are globally yours"

Hehe I have seen this add like 1000 times on CNN over the last few months. I like it, definitely agree that it is a much nicer add then their add with Costner. Its great to see TK getting a bit more global recognition, the tune is very catchy as well.

TK is planning to use another star in a new ad. Rumors point to Charlize Theron.

Haha woops, slipped my radar. The tune IS catchy, I've been humming it all day! Friends are looking at me oddly, I'm cabin crew with Emirates yet I'm singing a Turkish Airlines jingle!

That might work out better, given that she's a more timely star than Costner whose career seems to have gone by the wayside. But I still feel like celebrities doing endorsements with airlines can go either way - that said, it can be done right, a la BA featuring Rachael Weiss to showcase their new First Class.

Cool. I see that TK is an official sponsor; do they provide transport service to the team as well, at least during Champions League trips?

Damn they are spending lots of money on their sport sponsorships! Taking a page out of the Emirates book. I wonder if EK would consider doing a similar commercial, featuring the Arsenal team?

Thanks.
I presume these are charter flights, correct?

Do we know how much, even ballpark numbers?

From what I know, TK 77W flew FC Barcelona to a couple of games. There were some problems though. Spanish FA didn't give the rights to TK to pick them up from Barcelona and fly them to a destination in UAE, IIRC. They had to do a stop in IST, very inconvinient. I hope this will be solved next year.

For FCBarcelona it is $12 mil for 2.5 years. For ManU $12 mil for 3 years. For Kevin Costner $1 mil.
