Re: Is IST the world's busiest airport to use separate runways for arrivals and departures?

The only exception for IST is that the landing and take off runways are not parallel, and as a result the overall capacity is lower than airports like DXB or LHR with parallel runways. I fail to see how this is the case. Take-offs at IST are usually from 35L/R and landings are usually on 05--and 05...

Re: Turkish Aviation September 2017

So I guess I should drop my dreams of IST-KIX being reinstated? Very sad :(... actually, it is so strange, because TK has an actual aircraft (the retro-livery A330-200, registered TC-JNC) which is named after the Japanese town of "Kushimoto" (I think, the only TK aircraft to not be named ...

Re: Turkish Aviation September 2017

KIX was long time loss making (and was dropped previously once). 2nd NRT flight only started in late 2013 and only operated till early 2016. It had poor connection timing at IST (arrived too late back from NRT in the evening to make most Europe/regional connections). So I guess I should drop my dre...

Looks like pretty much everyone and their mother switched to 10 abreast seating. I am surprised that this feature is nev...

Boeing 757 replacements? Seems like the A321 is the closest aircraft specifications-wise to the 757--even more so with the new A321neos?

Turkey imports around 6B$ goods from India and exports only 600M$ to India annually. If you look at custom taxes, Turkey applies a few percent on Indian goods. On the other hand, Turkish goods receives up to 100% tax at Indian borders. Now please tell us which way to go? Apply 500% tax to Indian go...

Japan is very Tokyo centric when it comes to longhaul travel demand.

Same reason many longhaul carriers walked away from Osaka. This is the 2nd time KIX was dropped by TK.


What reason is that? High landing fees?
