A few days ago I was tipped off by a friend in ATL that the start up date of JFK-IST would be moved from 24-MAY-13 to 27-APRIL-13. So it's now starting back up about a month earlier than planned which is always good news! it has been loaded in the timetables:


DL 72: Depart JFK @ 1705 and Arrive IST @ 1015 (+1)

DL 73: Depart IST @ 1215 and Arrive JFK @ 1650

Flights will operate with 767 aircraft.

Actually its delayed further.

Resumption was to be March 3rd when it was pulled originally for the winter.

Was March 3rd, then the Oct 17 OAG thread it showed pushed to May 24th. Now its I guess back to your April date.

But still almost 2 months passed the original resumption date.

So basically this is another summer Europe tourist service by Delta.

As a DL non-rev wanting to get to and from IST for a cruise, it is frequently cautioned on Deltanet that due to weight restrictions non-revs may not be boarded or downgraded even if seats are available. Is this seasonal or year round?

Anyone have any experience with this? I thought I had better get some ZED tickets to AMS as a back up.

Appreciate any info.

You should not have a problem Eastbound. Westbound it is pushing the range a little bit. I wouldn't expect as big of weight restrictions as SEA-PEK has, but you could see some.

Since ZED tickets are refundable, that's always a good idea.



If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

Nope, missing a zero there....Resumption was supposed to be on March 30, 2013 (the start of the summer schedule), but was pushed back to May 24 about a few weeks ago, and now is being brought forward to 27 April.

I suspect that these dates also need to account for the current throughput on the modifiocations to the 763 fleet including lie flat and the international wi-fi.

Since we are on IST can I sidetrack and ask if IAH-IST is still on for 1 April with Turkish?
