Does TK Send The A330 To FRA?

Wed Aug 17, 2011 2:07 am

Hey guys,

I've been looking for possible connections from FRA to IST and one of the options I found (SEP-25-2011) TK 1588 / LH 7062 is listed as A330 equipment in multiple booking sites such as Expedia/Orbtiz/Kayak/, however, in the TK website it's shown as B737-800.

Does anyone know which aircraft will actually operate this flight? I'm crossing my fingers to get the chance to fly Turkish A330 in business class!

TK sends everything to FRA. If they had the 747 or A380 they would do that also.

THY is very aggressive in managing capacity on a day to day basis, with equipment moved around based on demand.
Schedules are built with generic model types, with swaps occurring (often multiple times) the closer to departure day.

For reference 1588 in the past 3-months has been operated primarily with the A321, about a dozen times with the 738. a few times on the A320 and twice on the A340.

Only TK1592 (afternoon flight) has seen widebody action in the past two weeks, and that was A343.
