Re: Turkish Aviation July 2019

Besides TC-LLC, the 4th TK787 TC-LLD is marked for delivery. Maybe they will do a tandem delivery flight this week.

Already a new youtube video from the first DPS-IST 787 flight in Y. The beginning is slow, so start from 4:00 minute mark. Looks like there is a new TK safety video (with new FA uniforms) and special printed menus for the inaugural flight and new amenity kits. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kpnLaNG...

Also the 3rd TK 787 TC-LLC is now ready for delivery.
First INT flight with a 787, to Bali, is tomorrow.
Do we know why AYT, why don't TK try other domestic stations for these training rotations? Thanks.

Re: Turkish Aviation July 2019

I agree. If your flights are on time, that is more than enough time to make your connections. The longest distance between your gates will be about 2km. Try to get a seat in the front fo the plane and plan that most people on your flights will be making connections :) Bon Voyage.
