Re: Turkish Aviation September 2020

TC-LSP, a TK A321neo, is now back in service, meaning TC-LSE is the only one left to return to service now.

TK's 21st A321neo, TC-LSV, has been delivered. I wonder if it's going to be allocated to LGW as strictly as TC-LSY was when it was first delivered.

I see there's TC-LSV and TC-LSZ to be delivered in the future along with TC-LTA, so it should be TC-LT*. Does anyone know why there isn't a TC-LSI?

Re: Turkish Aviation July 2020

I saw on Seatguru 2 A321neo layouts, one of which has 34 rows but the same capacity as the 32-row A321neo. Are any of these 34-row neos in service yet/are they due soon? They have the A350 seat map up too, which is why I'm asking if the aforementioned A321neos are due to be delivered soon enough.

I was just having a look at TK's European flights for the summer and saw that Kiev will be getting double daily 787s on TK457/8/9/60. I was looking at dates around the middle of July. LHR will also be getting them on TK1985/86 and TK1971/72 is blank, so I'm guessing that's an A350.

Looking at TK's schedule, it looks like all aircraft bar the 737-800s and the A330-300s will be grounded until at least April 17th (if I was to guess I'd say they would ground all A333s except one specific frame to operate Izmir?)
