TK is merely one of many dozen airlines targeted by various animal rights groups. Here in the U.S, airlines wide has UA, BA, CZ, QR, have been fighting since last year a complaint to the DOT regarding transportation of animals used for medical research. Regarding Air France, someone a few years ago...Jump to post
My problem with the TK website is that I'm not able to do online bookings because the option to pay with Ideal, does not work for some reason. In the Netherlands, we mainly use Ideal for online payments, no creditcards. So people like me are very dependant of this method. On the TK app settings, yo...Jump to post
What are the reasons the first 787 delivery is in 2023 besides "Republic’s 100th year.”? Why wait 5 years? Where did you get that idea? 1st 787 arriving in 2019. TK will receive 6 frames in 2019. 1st A350 in 2020. Based on a quote, can't find the article anymore. it was something along the lin...Jump to post
Ease of knowing which aircraft you are looking at? IMO If one needs this kind of help finding an aircraft, besides the letters on the nose wheel door, the reg. on the wing and in the back, there's something seriously wrong with you. If you say so. Apparently you are not open to other ways of consid...Jump to post
looks amateurish Based on what? Have you considered it might be a legal requirement from Taiwan, or they may have a good reason for doing so, like having an ease at knowing which aircraft you are looking at from the tarmac as an employee? Well excuse me for sharing my observation and lack of knowle...Jump to post
Its the first of five ordered and to be delivered by the end of 2019. They'll replace one by one current 747F fleet. https://www.planespotters.net/airframe/Boeing/777/B-16781-EVA-Airways/x8R9cPJx http://www.aircargonews.net/news/airline/freighter-operator/single-view/news/eva-receives-first-new-b77...Jump to post

KLM will reduce AMS-IST as of September 4th. Flights will be reduced to 1 daily after this date. did that last year as well. winter schedule kind of thing? I don't think it is possible for any European airline to compete with any Turkish airline on price and frequency. It is better to codeshare wit...Jump to post
Can anyone tell me if TC-JJN (TK B773ER) is still in the Batman v Superman colour scheme? I have tried to search on here and the net but could not seem to find any photos of this aircraft in 2017! Sorry if it has already been reported. Also, if it has been repainted back to full normal cs, does it ...Jump to post
All that was needed was a gust or windshear at the wrong moment and this was the next CI642. KLM has forgotten the lessons of Tenerife, it seems, and impatience rules the day once more. Prudence would have recommended diverting elsewhere. The pax were going to be hugely inconvenienced regardless, w...Jump to post
As predicted by several of you in the last several months, the performance numbers being posted by airlines, airports, and economy recently in Turkey is fantastic. Congrats to all parties. Don't get me wrong, I'm extremely happy about the positive developments in the aviation industry of Turkey; ho...Jump to post
What kind of leak are we talking about? A major leak would be noticed by multiple persons.
If the leak was significant enough for it to be an emergency, i wouldn't have to do anything.
Makes me think of KLM taking off of a TW in 2010. whoopsJump to post
Why is the media suggesting she was holding the fence, in stead of just saying she was? Media is really a dead beat.
At 57 i would probably not be doing that. Was she jet-lagged? Drunk? Awful, especially if your half way around the world. and now was her time.
just saw this, a freighter connection to SP, yet can't find much authentication.
Unless i've missed something in the thread here, does anyone know more about this?

Well done UA! I've seen it once(PVG-AMS), that a crew member flew on ID90 dressed in sweats, disregarding the company rules.

Culture question: Are female Turkish Airline employees required or encouraged to wear head coverings? I've never been on Turkish Airlines. If you mean flight attendants, then no.

1) Unless you are flying to the US you do not go through preclearance. If you are flying to the US you are spending an hour+ off your free time no matter what. Preclearance just means you are spending that time in AMS and not whatever airport in the US you flew to. 2) You realize that not everyone ...Jump to post
I hope the preclearance gets banned. It's an hour or more off my vacation or free time spending where i am.
