Re: Turkish Aviation July 2019

Given the pretty big negative reaction to the 787 Business Class seats... what are the chances/how feasible is it for TK to fit their future 787s with a better business class seat plan?

Or how likely is it even for TK to change their plans with their business class seat plans?

What does the future plan of IST look like right now?

I can only find construction plans going a quite a few years back but they don't resemble the current plan much anymore, so the airport's plan has obviously changed.

Do we know where the new terminal or runways are being built?

I'm not surprised that there is operational hiccups with the new airport. It would be extraordinary if everything went smoothly.

With that being said, I think companies like TAV, who actually have decades of experience running airport ops, would be better suited for running IST.
