Supposed to start on July 1st (5 x Weekly), when I try to look for fares, it says, flights don't exist.
So, I tried IAD-IST flight one-way and it is $1700. One way Y.
EWR will start very soon. in normal situations, why TK is going to start to EWR while it operates to JFK?? both are almost in the same place? My guess, main reason TK not started yet EWR was they can not get desired time slot. Since many of airlines cancel flights and some of them permanently; may ...Jump to post
I have some update, BOS and ATL plan to start First week of July. Unfortunately, no JFK yet but long rumored EWR will start very soon. Thanks for the updates MeCe :) I don't care about JFK if we can get EWR. Same distance from the city if you live in NYC and easier to get to and lot nicer arrivals ...Jump to post
Thanks for the replies. Do you have a date for when the July and August schedules will be released? Sorry I could not update, pretty busy today. Prediction is 19th June, MIA may be added. July and August unclear for now. And you were spot on for this one as well, MIA added to the schedule. Any info...Jump to post

Again, things are moving very rapidly. TK starts to sell IST-JFK tickets again, starting May 1st, 3 x Daily.

UK can deny shower attendants entrance as crew; if they are not part of crew simply they dont need have rest rules. So, they can leave with passengers, pass the immigration than go to hotel.

6th TK 787 is set for delivery on Sept10th. And that is the day when ATL and BOG-PTY flights to be performed with 787.

For instance the EU3 have only a minor overall representation; US and CA carriers non-existent; but most striking for me is the fact that QR and EK haven't upgauged to 380 yet.

Regarding of brakes; TC-LNC has brake fans and they can be switched on during taxi to prevent heat build up. 15 min cool down is little too much for fan equipped plane.
