According to the Turkish daily newspaper Milliyet, an Emirates Cargo A310, and a TK 340 were stuck in snow. As of this morning 28 cm. of snow is on the ground and many flights cancelled, but snow is expected to taper off today. The article says TK 340 "Aydin" was on its way to BKK with only 139 passengers, and they were taken off the plane, fueled dumped to free the plane.
I would have thought the load factor to be better during this cold spell. Is this normal for this flight?
