Hello dear photogs, Recently I ran into a youtuber that’s been downloading photos from this site and others, cut out the watermark from the ones that it has them and then use them on his video. Unfortunately YouTube only allows the individuals that have the copyright to issue a copyright claim. Is t...Jump to post

I know the title sounds odd but it came up during a conversation with a friend. Can a runway be constructed as 1/3 concrete and 2/3 asphalt surface ? Would this be detrimental on breaking ?
I tried to look up the AC150 on FAA but I got lost in all the technical stuff.
Flew then ICN - PRG last year in Business. Service was Ok. Not at the level of Korean of course. Despite the millions of tourists we get here in Prague there isn’t much of them flown by CSA. I think doing a codeshare with DL and running flights to JFK might work for them. There will be a lot of A330...Jump to post

Yes, in recent news it was announced that the 3rd runway at IST might open in 5 months time but shortened from 3750m to 3000m. I am not sure if they will eventually extend it to 3750m. This will hopefully shorten the taxi times for the Domestic flights for the busy summer season. Hotels, IIRC, I po...Jump to post
Looking for some examples how a newly constructed airport killed the old airport and examples to the contrary.
- Denver international killed Stapleton
Incheon has been opened but Kimpo still operates.
Any other examples from the rest of the world would be appreciated.
Landed on the new airport last Monday and will fly back to Prague this coming Monday. My arrival experience was very positive. Shot some videos as well. I will try to do the same on departure and see if I can put together a video with my personal experience. Because I mentioned my positive experienc...Jump to post

Will one of the major American carriers return to IST in the future? I highly doubt it. Despite millions of tourist coming to Turkey Dept. Of State still considers Turkey as a country that a non essential travel should not take place. It's a bit political move if you ask me. Sent from my SM-G930T u...Jump to post
I think the Airbus order was a legacy from Continental. United are Boeing true and true... I guess that explains all those A320s that United had. To be fair, I think the A320's were all bought for TED and were just shunted to mainline when that operation went bellyup. But I do believe that post you...Jump to post
For a country that has global expansion ambitions, why isn't Turkey training more pilots? Global demand is off the charts and it is a surefire way to get unemployment down. I know training pilots is expensive, but the return on investment is massive as well. Training pilots is not like opening up n...Jump to post
None of the posters are talking about the shortage of crews in TK.. Management is totally clueless about the impact of the devaluation to the pilot salaries.

Few notes here as I flew TK a lot in last month. GVA-IST : Part of IAD-GVA-IST on UA mileage ticket going on vacation. IST-GVA: Part of IST-GVA-IAD ticket purchased. Both flights were non eventful.

Excuse my ignorance in this matter, but isn’t this the same airline that crashed a 747F in Bishkek this january? The runway being relatively short should be no excuse for an overrun. A correct takeoff performance calculation should guarantee a safe stop before the end of the runway. Lets hope the i...Jump to post
Heard a rumor for upcoming 350 orders. Flew business BRU-IST , IST - BAH, AMS-IST. The latter was on a A340. It showed its age.

As far as I heard, QR 787s do not have crew rest area We talked about it last month. If I understand it right, crew rest are not mandatory. Blocked seats is also possible. What kind of an airline would order 787s withouy a crew rest. If TK gets these birds they will be used on some long thin routes...Jump to post
Was doing some research for an article that I was going to write for Kokpit and came to a shocking surprise that THY is one of the few airlines that has 9 abreast seating on 777. Looks like pretty much everyone and their mother switched to 10 abreast seating. I am surprised that this feature is neve...Jump to post
Flew BRU-IST on Business last week. It was one of the new 321s with sharklets. (sorry I was tired after flying non stop for 3 days). The food choice and the service was mediocre at best.

KLM will reduce AMS-IST as of September 4th. Flights will be reduced to 1 daily after this date. KLM does this every winter.

What I really would love to see is a return of the US Airlines to IST. DL272/273 was a suspension in 2016, hopefully to return soon if these numbers are coming back up! Not in near future.

One last thing to mention. Toward the end of the flight, I was about to use the front lav and the co-pilot was standing there.

I was just checking flights and I'm amazed that on popular routes such as IST-DLM or IST-BJV the (almost) absence of KK and 8Q is astonishing. Especially on weekends in summer, those flights fill up themselves easily. Instead, TK is charging 350 TRY oneway fares in a more or less monopoly. Differen...Jump to post
