Hello, I need some help on London-IST Flights Flight TK7799 (AnadoluJet) STN-SAW has been flying everyday for the last 2 weeks for as far as I can tell. Have your relatives looked into this flight? Thank you 767Forever, they totally skipped Anadolu Jet and will check that. SAW works much better for...Jump to post
Hello, I need some help on London-IST Flights We have relatives who want to come back to Turkey but their mid-july TK flights are being cancelled and re-instated again. What I hear is, if a flight gets full or good enough load at a specific day, they open the flight as a repatriation flight and go o...Jump to post

I have a question about new Istanbul airport's coverage in Flightradar24
I used to see airplanes taxiing from gates to the runway, but I cannot see any ground traffic now. I can see landing aircraft and airplane taking off, I was wondering if they limited the coverage for the airport ?

There was a runway incident at SAW this morning where a Pegasus 737 skidded of runway. I think flights are cancelled till 11:20.
Are the incoming flights diverted to the New Airport ?

Congrats on the new 787 ( it is a nice coincidence that we share the same username LLA) I wish TK opted for 2-4-2 like JAL ( I know it is not feasible) but with these big windows I want to sit by the window yet at long flights I tend to go to bathroom a lot and therefore always an aisle passenger on...Jump to post
How is the new airport for spotting and photography? Are there any locations around the airport that can be used for that purpose and I wonder if there any offical observation decks or places? Nothing for now. However if you do some offroad, there are great hill top locations. Another option is to ...Jump to post

Does anyone have any update on the big move to the new airport ? ( I am assuming this weekend is out of question at the moment) Also if the big move happens ( as the whole airport is transferred in two days) do you have any location recommendations for spotting the ground traffic? And a video from t...Jump to post
15 years ago I always thought big airplanes will rule the sky, back then I really did not understand why Boeing did not pursue a proper VLA ( proper meaning not a double floored 747 but a new aircraft), well it is good that I am not in airline business or I would certainly loose money :) I am sad th...Jump to post
I never flew A380 but if the rumors are true, it is sad to hear production end so quickly. I like the look of quads and trijets, and just to see tubes with two engines on the side all the time is quite boring for spotting.Jump to post
I'm not sure, but I would assume that the date of travel would be considered which in your case is still within your current status. I would compare it to retroactive mileage crediting which also shows the date of travel and not the date of crediting on the account. At the end of the day, your &quo...Jump to post
TK just announced today 5x status miles for all flights to/from ISL until the end of this year. Great and actually pretty cheap way to collect some desperately needed miles if you ask me. So, if you fly ISL-GYD business class (J) next month round trip you will earn 17,800 miles at a cost of $500. W...Jump to post
I love quads, I wish we had more quads on the air, even if they don't need 3rd and 4th engine, I wish they placed dummy engines just for aesthetic reasons ( just like the 4th funnel on Titanic ) Yet, twin engines and probably at the end of the century single engines will be the dominant type in the ...Jump to post
I don't know if this is true but one TK and one Atlas pilot had a go with each other over the radio at Ataturk Airport. There was some confusion or mistep by one of the airplanes and pilots argued who crossed the line or not, at the end one of them asked to meet at the gate ( to probably argue in a ...Jump to post
The only possible explanation of this order would be political, order 8 passenger aircraft and then convert 2 to government VIP use, it sounds much better than ordering just 2 aicrafts for VIP use. It reminds me of much needed CH-47 order for the Army finalizing but at the last moment one of the ord...Jump to post

As QR is banned using air space of Gulf Countries, this new situation may create new opportunities for TK.

So what does this mean for FedEx, UPS, and other air freight services? Doesn't Qatar get a lot of food flown in on freighters? I guess they'll run out of fresh fish like tuna in just a few days time.

I envy people who said they flew Concorde. I know quite a few people who flew with Concorde, most of them flew once or twice and when I asked about the flight they never mentioned the seating.

I have two questions regarding the ban for all airliners
1- I understand cameras are banned as well but are the lenses included in this ban or just camera body?
2- Is there anyway to insure all the laptops and cameras checked inside baggages?
As Bahadır said, it will affect the business side of TK a lot but I think for the first two months, the effects would not be much since a lot of people already bought their tickets to US. However if the ban goes further on it will be a big hit for TK. Total value of my tablet,laptop and camera is ar...Jump to post

Wow, 25 years, I share similar memories with a lot of members here. I was a kid back then, a 747 fan, but I had great time flying with TK 343s many times.

I am a person who goes to toilet a lot ( 3-4 times during long haul) and with 2+4+2 seating I have a chance to sit at an aisle and not be too far from the window plus there is only one person instead of two that will go to through me. So if I have a chance I try to choose A330/340 for my long hauls ...Jump to post
If these planes keep getting longer, we will need little subways or small golf carts in the cargo deck to get from one end to another

Yes, check some of the replies before yours.
