the history of aviation is full of fast expansions. I wish them well for their IST
flights but going head to head with DL
will not work. Granted internet sales are not the highest percentage of delivery media of tickets in this route, but they will still work really really hard on customer service.
Now, if they had actually made an alliance with a partnership, like SkyTeam and put a DL
codeshare on their flights, that it would be a different story.
How about IAD
and making a deal with United? Can you pass this question to Tuncay when you see him ?
