Looks like TK might be showing an interest in li'l ol' IAH..

The Turkish foreign trade minister was in Houston yesterday. He met with
executives from top US firms and attended a dinner that included a HAS
representative. Here's an article on the visit and here's the last sentence of
that article:

During the meeting, Caglayan phoned Turkish Airlines (THY) Director General
Temel Kotil and told him that THY should start direct flights from Istanbul to

Well, it does kind of make sense considering that it would connect two Star hubs, plus TK could try to skim some oil traffic heading to the Middle East, despite having to compete with nonstops. They could probably do it with a A330-200 if they wanted, but I would have to guess that a 340 or 777 is more likely.

Either way, if TK really does want to try to become the next Emirates, IAH wouldn't be a terrible place for them to start.

The actual translation of the Turkish article states that THY does not currently have plans to start Houston in the near future (2011/2012), but it is something that THY is not adverse to considering. Los Angeles and Miami are "in the budget" (LAX already announced).

That is funny. It is how Google translates the ministers name "Caglayan"... literally.

You can always find this kind of info at "Turkish Aviation" threads.
