Oh my...
What happened to summer, it is all gone now!!

Greetings again Turkish Aviation fans from a mild Istanbul evening.
Yes, more work and I am stuck here in Istanbul for another 3 weeks.
It is always interesting to take a look at our conversations daily though.

- I hear TK wet-leasing a 330-200.
- Very interesting debates on TK wide body seating configs.
- I will ask it again, where is the presidential 332???
- Any more news on GRU-EZE?

Thanks as always for being a part of this community and keeping our threads informative, fun and free of personal attacks or political mumbo jumbo.
I will try to be more involved once I have some free time.

Thanks for the new thread. Although I didnt contribute much on the last I was following  
Quoting TK787 (Thread starter):
What happened to summer, it is all gone now!!

Indeed cant believe where its gone but then again if you were in the British Isles we didnt get one  

It seems TK is still having issues with the ground product. I read on another thread an alarming experience from two J class passengers on a trip to the Far East. It seems out stations are also an issue . I wish they could get those sorted out as it degrades a really nice overall product.

Hey TK thanks for the new thread as always.
Presidential plane is still in outfitting (LH Technik?), last I heard. It is taking a long time, as it should, plane was delivered green, and they are going to blow about 50-75 million dollars in furnishings, technology, etc. takes time...,

As for TK widebody configs I don't think its right sized. I think the allocation to comfort class is overdone, and the J class is suffering in size, it is getting very hard to find a J seat on North American flights especially JFK, And LAX.
As for the J config; 2-3-2. The experience of someone flying on the -2- seats side wont be same with 3 in the middle, as my mom just flew to LAX with my sister and they were on window side, she said very comfortable. However return was from JFK in mid secion and she said its a battle for elbow room in the middle seat. It shouldn't be that way. I am not totally against the 2-3-2 J, but it should be executed better I think. Just my 2 cents.

Yes 1st THY half numbers were rather good and beat the market forecast.

Some details:
Revenue - 6.7bil TL (+36%)
Passengers - 18mil (+20%)
ASK - +19%
RPK - +24%
Load Factor - 75.2% (+5.7%)

39% of passengers flying TK were transfers clients.


In other TK news - for those that are tired of the hazelnut snacks on TK, they will begin offering packs of dried Malatya apricots later this year as well.

Additionally TK is in the process of researching a corporate sensory logo - a signature brand scent that will be used on aircraft and lounges. Recently 2000 cabin crew and passengers participated in survey comparing different smells - everything from jasmine to ocean to pine and lots of different combinations.
While many might laugh at this, branding a scent has been proven to influence brand perception and effect consumer behaviour. For example such scents are employed by hotels, shopping centers, auto dealers, and other airlines.
From what I hear the scent will likely be a flower based one as its seems to have gotten the most favorable results in the survey.



And lastly - MNG last week took delivery of its first A330F.

As I had previously mentioned will be interesting to see how MNG utilizes this aircraft. Unlike the older A300 fleet, this costly new aircraft needs to stay busy to pay for itself. MNG has stated its seeks to pursue more scheduled service operations, however in the past it has had a difficult time often having to returns to ACMI and charter flying instead.

Turkish soccer/football club Galatasaray will apperantly fly in style (hopefully on the pitch as well  ) this season. The image in the article suggests a 737 with winglets. Apperantly Airplus aviation is doing the paintwork and refurbishment with a reduced seating capacity for 78 pax. Can't wait to see the real thing...

Agreed looking at image the scheme does look uninspiring. AFAIK, such lease arranegements are popular in the U.S. with sports teams ( 2012 Ncaa Football Charters (by flySFO Aug 29 2012 in Civil Aviation) ) This might be part of a sponsorship deal. I would think this is for all their away fixtures both international and national.

Yesterday was the first flight for Djibouti, which replaced Khartoum as the stop en route to Mogadishu. And today - just days after Nouakchott as a new destination - TK has announced Aden in Yemen. The flights will be routed via Sana'a. There it is: http://airlineroute.net/2012/09/05/tk-ade-oct12/

Further, SHGM has signed a new civil aviation agreement with Gabon. We can expect Libreville anytime I guess. The agreement gives "Turkish aviation companies" (read TK) the chance to use Douala and Port Harcourt as stops en route to Libreville as well as Pointe Noire, Brazzaville and Luanda as tag ons with full 5th freedom.

Finally, DHMI has published figures for end of August. IST still growing like crazy, AYT stagnating, ESB and ADB as well as SAW growing slowly. Source: http://dhmi.gov.tr/istatistik.aspx

I am really curious if these destinations have a future or if they are served just to collect destinations. In long term this will work for sure, but in short term... Time will tell us. BTW it was reported that TK now is 5th in number of total destination in the world and 1st in europe and 2nd in the world in terms of destinations from a single hub, overtaking Air France. Only Delta has more (maybe in ATL?).

Brazzaville? Isn't it just opposite to Kinshasa on the other side of the river?? Does this make sense? (Also Air France is serving both airports)

IST already has overtaken MUC and FCO and has become europe's 6th busiest airport. With growth keeps stable this year at 21%, IST will have had 45 mio. pax in 2012 ! Another 10% growth in 2013 and IST will become one of the lesse than 20 airpots in the world serving 50+ mio pax/year... What is the capacity after increasing runway capacity ?

Regarding all the African destinations, I believe its important to remember all markets already have established traffic flows to Europe, and new growing traffic demand to Asia.

THY is not trying to create something new or be the first one to plant a flag in any market (except maybe Somalia), but instead wants to simply divert the existing traffic to route via IST versus historic gateways like Paris.

But these two citites are the capitals of two different countries! And they are not in real good terms also, if I remember correctly. So traffic wise, these two cities are probably different markets altogether.

Still, TK going crazy in Africa. This is a lot of routes ... China maybe a new source of traffic, but all these cities all around the continent? I wonder if Kotil even knows how many cities he serves in Africa

I don't think IST terminal can exceed 50m. It already looks like a zoo in there. And compared to the airports of the last decade with high ceilings, skylights, large waiting areas and better layout (think new BCN, KUL, LHR T5...) it is severly outdated IMHO.

I know that. One is french-Kongo the other one belgian-kongo.
They are even closer than Buenos Aires and Montevideo (also separated by a river / bay), but Montevideo barely gets served in contrary to Buenos Aires.

Turkish economy itself is growing in Africa. There are also rumours that they just open that destination of the Gulen schools...

BTW Airex in Istanbul begins this Friday. Maybe some orders this weekend ?

Well, Topcu of TK mentioned two years ago that TK wants to double its destinations in Africa to 35. I guess we are almost there. Anyone counting?
TK is doing all it can, from;
-Serving everywhere from IST up to 2-3 hours with single aisles.
-Serving what it can with its current LH fleet to Asia and N.America.
-Utilizing 739s at off hours at IST to long haul destinations, for connecting pax in mind.

Regional jets and 787/350 type service come to mind next. That is easier than bunch of 77W/330 or bigger service and competing with EK, LH and others in a world economy the way it is.

I think that's a smart move - especially utilizing the night hours to get Africa services going.

yes - a 787/350 strategy would be a better choice to make TK more efficient and opening new doors than go head-to-head with the Manatee flyers! even if not for that ... atleast to appreciate the long waiting a-nutters like us
