Re: Turkish Aviation August 2020

Flew TK on the A321Neo from AMS. I hope TK brings back their regular meal service before too long, the sandwich is hardly edible. There were maybe 50ish pax max. Most rows only had 1 maybe 2 people. I was surprised because the B777 flight from 6 weeks earlier was completely packed. Interestingly the...

Re: Turkish Aviation July 2020

I noticed for the past week that all planes flying to the east (around Turkey) are going +/- 200km/h faster than planes heading west. For example a KLM B777 and TK B777 are passing each other in opposite directions. KLM going back to base with 776km/h speed and TK going 1033hm/h to Bishkek. Also not...

Supposedly because Anadolu Jet TK7151 took a hit from a foreign object and returned back to the gate so incoming planes diverted. But the runway is cleared now.

Is it more profitable and cheaper to send 8 smaller AC like 737 and 320/321 a day, instead of let's say 2/3 widebodies to AYT? They still send a B777 to Izmir but not to Antalya anymore. What is the logic behind that?
