Re: Turkish Aviation July 2019

Has anyone seen this before? On the TK app it lets you select seats 100 days before departure. On the first day I selected a seat and that was fine, a day or so later I changed it but now when I go in it is locked and all other seats show the same way as pre 100 days and unavailable? Not a big deal ...

On the way out we land at 22.55 from Dublin and leave for Tashkent at 00.30, so thats 1.35 transfer time. On the way back we land in Istanbul from Tashkent at 06.0...

It'd take ~half the narrow body airliner production out of the market for ~five years and lay waste to lots of airline's plans.



Would it? Would they not just sell NG’s again, not ideal but can’t see them not producing /selling anything?

Re: Boeing 737MAX Grounded Worldwide Q2 2019

In all seriousness, I wonder if IAG is now having 2nd thoughts about the LOI for 200 MAXs... Why would they though? It’s only a LOI, even if the plane never flies again it means they have leverage with Airbus and it doesn’t cause them anything. Upside is they might get a better deal with Airbus but...

Re: Boeing 737MAX Grounded Worldwide Q2 2019

I wonder how long Boeing can continue producing the MAX at the current production rate? Surely there will come a time when the costs become unmanageable- even for a cash rich company like Boeing. Wondering the same. Their MAX related expenses amounts to 4B per month. Last time I checked they had le...

Re: EI Regional (Stobart) - Transfer

Does it really matter if you are unable to book a return ticket? I assume that Aer Lingus only has one-way pricing anyway? Another thought: Maybe it has something to do with the conditions of the PSO? I’d imagine the desired benefit isn’t necessarily price but checked through baggage and connection...

FR24 hasn't switched the airport codes, so all flights appear to be going to Ataturk but actually land at the new airport. A bit confusing, but I guess these details will work themselves out in the coming few days. Another problem is that Flightradar doesn't seem to have anyone that lives close to ...

Re: Istanbul new airport - latest pictures and discussion thread

According to Wiki, BA and Qatar are moving on March 3rd. Assume this is rubbish? BA did cancel their flights on Mar 1 & 2 to plan for the move. Assume they will have to cancel again on the two days prior to the April scheduled date.

Thanks - how do you phase it in gradually though with such a huge part of TK's business being connections. Unless you moved TK first and all other airlines a week later or vice versa.

Re: Why create Level and not stick with Vueling?

Another factor is that Vueling has a Spanish AOC, so pilots must speak Spanish. It would be easy to get around by setting up a Vueling English language AOC elsewhere though but WW references it at the Nov capital markets day.
