Re: Turkish Aviation May 2020

My Turkish friend in London is desperate to go back to Turkey (Canakkale) ASAP. Does anyone know how this could be done? Don't know until June, but in June, a flight with Lufthansa to Frankfurt or Munich or Eurowings to Düsseldorf on the same day TK operates a FRA/MUC/DUS - IST flight is probably t...

Re: Turkish Aviation May 2020

IIRC, TK was up to 1500+ flights a day at IST. In terms of frequencies, the graph says under 1000 weekly International frequencies planned in September 2020. Just to give you an idea, TK had 50 each freqs to TLV and LHR, 21 to JFK and probably 40 to FRA. I imagine 1000 frequencies a week is less th...

Re: Rumour: BA A35K LHR-MEL Pilot Training

The article just says MEL is loaded on the OANS system. That doesn’t mean it would be a non-stop service. I though pt one of the problems with the current BA A350 config is lack of storage space in the galleys. So much so that it precludes a full second meal service for economy. I should think that...

Re: German Aviation Thread 2019

They are taking Eurowings out of long-haul operationally behind the scenes (i.e only SN and XG operated aircraft), but the brand will remain and there won't be a noticeable difference for passengers, as far as I'm aware.

Re: Air France will half it's A380 fleet

Any chance BA or LH would consider picking these frames up? Lufthansa has been shuffling around 5 of their A380s between FRA and MUC during the summer season, maybe with these aircraft they could keep their FRA A380 flights that they had previously and their new flights at MUC?
