Better let TK double up at DEL, BOM and connect the metros and 6E connect mainly non metros to IST.
Yeah I don't see the point of 6E flying DEL/BOM-IST. In my opinion BLR is the prime candidate to be connected to IST. We could expect something like a CJB-BLR-IST on 6E and IST-XXX on TK
Would be interesting to see how transfer traffic will work for say a XXX-IST-YYY (non-BOM/DEL) routing. TK is essentially full service international carrier. BLR/HYD/MAA would be about a 7-8 hour flight from IST. So how are they going to price the tickets, services like meals etc., if a pax is getting on to a LCC for the next 7 hours?
