I think management in THY should throw away their buddies in Worldfocus and kick their two cripled airplanes out. There isn't a week that goes by I keep reading some horror stories about this airline that should have been dead long time ago.
The latest incident involves trying to land in now closed Samsun Airport which is really hard to mix with the new Carsamba airport.
The reputation of Turkish is being tarnished so that the Aydin Kiziltan and company can have some kind of a cash flow in their hands. No personal or political relationship should be higher than the image of the entire airline.
If they are really short of airplanes, you can always get the -400s from MNG that shut down its pax operations.
