TK took delivery of their 13th A321neo TC-LSO on the 24th, it entered service yesterday Also I noticed TC-LSB to Vienna was diverted back to IST, any idea why? Another question is, do TC-JMM and TC-JMN have some sort of special configuration? They appear on the morning Manchester flight a lot of th...Jump to post

Another 321 for TK. I lost count, TK was supposed to get 15 this year, but there was a slowdown. What is the actual number now? 12???
After stop ticketing and temporarly grounding, I do not believe Atlasglobal will restart flights. They should have a new investor, long-term business plan and probably also new planes. As of now, still 2 A330 and 2 A321 in the fleet. Both A321 are flying selected flights to Teheran or Baghdad. One A...Jump to post
Flights are suspended until December 21st. For some reason the FB page doesn't say that but their Twitter does. Also, did they just straight up disable their website? Yes, all bookings stopped until Dec 16, 2019. On this date, they will do information about refund of tickets. Highly possible also a...Jump to post

Apparently TK is retiring their only 737-700, TC-JKO, quite imminently. It's odd how long they kept a single 73G for! https://www.ch-aviation.com/portal/news/82997-turkish-airlines-to-retire-only-b737-700-in-mid-4q19 Do you have access to the whole article? It will be scrapped or for sale?Jump to post
I think the biggest problem after this 737 Max issue will start after FAA gives an OK. Will the crew and pax trust this aircraft anymore despite an OK from FAA? I don't think. TK should handle on this issue and order some A220s. Furthermore, the A321neo is also in delay. What about the configuratio...Jump to post
TK awarded additional India service point - Ahmadabad for cargo ops. Will launch Nov 10. The visit with an indian man brings some fruit. But clearly a beginning.

If I was a director @TK I would cancel all 737 Max orders with delivery from 2020. Convert them to B777/B787 orders. So stay with grounded 24 737 Max aircraft and yes, order many A220s. A220 would open new markets and fits also for domestic. A220 would also be a good replace for A319/A320/B737 and t...Jump to post
