Hopefully this doesn't come at the expense of JFK service.
To me, it will always be:
- Bombardier CSeries
- Airbus A321neoLR and A321neoXLR
- EMBRACER ERJ-170, ERJ-175, ERJ-190, and ERJ-195
- MITSUBUSHI MRJ

Anti narrowbody-long range-twinjet gang. Long live the A380 and 747!

I was thinking the same thing. I’m sure this service will be successful

Turkish does do 2x Daily to New York. It is just an IST - JFK routing.

Sometimes a third flight, TK11, in addition to TK1 and TK3.

There is a Turk community in New Jersey, mainly in Paterson, but also the connections via EWR are great vs. JFK.

They did previously fly to EWR. They opted to consolidate at JFK.

Terminal 1 is also pretty much packed to the gills unless they were to come in at say before 9am and push back out before 11am.
if assumptions could fly, airliners.net would be the world's busiest airport

Saw this one coming for a while. It was bound to happen, if JFK is successful, mine as well start EWR as well too.

TK launched EWR in 1992. For the IATA Winter 1994 schedule (October 30th) it consolidated back to JFK.

Move was largely driven by Delta takeover of Pan Am Europe network. It was felt that TK would have a commercial advantage by offering something else besides JFK which DL also linked with Istanbul.

If memory serves me correct they served EWR from 1991-1993 with a A310.

UA doesn't play nice with lots of Star Alliance members. There isn't much advantage to EWR if UA isn't going to have connections available unless they are able to tap more of the NY/NJ O&D market.

From the timing, it is bit difficult or tight connection to S. Asian cities (India, Pakistan or Bangladesh). May not be the mkt they are looking for. JFK flight(s) connects well.
Maybe a good option on the US side to connect through UA.

TK launched JFK service in 1988 with an A310, then switched to IST-BRU-EWR which it operated for two years in late 1991, then switched back to JFK.

Oh gee, well maybe autocorrect on apple devices should get onboard with flagging it. No wonder why it went back to JFK with a stop in BRU, but nonetheless happy for EWR.

With EWR being added, Denver is now the only Star Hub with no TK service. Any chance of TK heading that way? Might be a better option than Emirates IMHO.

Good chance of it, TK has a knack for oddball non-Star destinations like ATL and MIA so DEN would be a walk in the park, especially without competition from QR.

What's the volume of Middle East and Indian O&D to/from Denver? O&D from nearby cities served by DEN that aren't also served by LAX? Liberal, Kansas; and Kearney, Nebraska?! :) More NYC is an obvious move; IMHO, DEN is not.

What an ignorant comment. There was a graph that displayed where DEN's international traffic originated from. Roughly 400 to 600 people travel between DEN and India/Southeast Asia daily. Denver has one of the strongest tech economies in the country with a growing Indian/Asian population. Combine that with a star hub at both ends. I bet you think Colorado is strictly weed and skiing.

ANA is primarily O&D TYO-JFK (like BA out of LHR - thats all they need) with NH connecting a 35+ million population with a 25 million+ NYC/Tri State area. Something that MANY on here forget about (or perhaps have never heard of). Interline agreements still exist, so a passenger is not required to stay within an alliance. With that said, Im sure there are healthy $$$ connections within and outside of alliances. I flew F on AA from GRU to JFK recently and half the cabin was connecting on to NRT.

I'm sure NH could end up at EWR if it saw a value.

There are tons of Middle Easterners in Colorado. I went to college in COS and there were many Turks, Iranians, Iraqis in school with me. If TK started to serve DEN, it would cut down on travel times immensely for folks wanting to visit back home.

I doubt the 333 can make that profitably, so I'd guess the A350 or 787 that's coming their way would do the trick, if they decide to launch flights there.
A350/CSeries = bae

Not that I don't believe you but do you have a link to the graph. I would like to look over that data and compare it with my cities to and from India/Southeast Asia daily. Thank you

Are you telling us that just in case anyone was interested in marrying one :-)

I like the previous post referring to Colorado only being known for strictly being weed and skiing, until recently I hadn't really thought of it but if anyone was to ask me I probably would have said the same but I'd probably mention the Rockies as well :-)

Climb the Rockies have a ski down the slopes and then head off to your cabin and get well and truly stoned, sounds perfect, Colorado here I come :-)

There's more local traffic between Miami and Turkey over the course of a month than between Denver and Turkey over an entire year (Miami is one of Istanbul's single largest trans-Atlantic local markets), while Atlanta is a significantly larger local market to foreign destinations than Denver and underserved by foreign airlines with respect to market size, which allows TK to carve a niche.

Not saying that DEN will never happen, but there is no comparison to MIA and ATL, which are hardly oddball.

There's lots of Eritreans and Ethiopians in Denver. And you can't throw a rock in the Denver Tech Center without hitting an Indian restaurant.

Americans love TKs low fares to western Europe via IST. If TK comes to Denver, I wonder what that means for Norwegian and Edelweiss.

With the volume of growth DEN is experiencing, I have to imagine TK will come eventually, especially since DEN may become UA’s second largest hub. However, TK at DEN is likely a few years off. TK’s biggest US hole right now is DFW and that need to be addressed first.

Forgot about SEA, they are a hole as well. I’d still put DFW just slightly ahead of SEA, but SEA is definetly far ahead of DEN. Nonetheless, I think all 3 are strong contenders.

There's more than what's on the surface, concerning SEA. Much like the previously mentioned DEN situation concerning Ethiopians and Eritreans, there are a lot in SEA, too. But there are lots of people that go to Moldova and Western Ukraine in Seattle, too. And they need either VIE, WAW, MUC or IST to have one-stop connections. Neither of those flights exist from SEA. Also EK had cut the DXB flight from twice a day, to just once, last year. So, you have a certain amount of Indians, who used to take EK before, needing a new connection.

Yes, SEA does have DL to AMS and CDG. But no KL/AF connections to Addis. Or to Ukraine/Moldova. Yes, LH has a FRA flight, but leaves in the afternoon, and gets in too late to make(usually double) connections to LWO, KIV, ODS, etc. You cannot count on them to have that many available seats. Nor, similarly, you cannot count on UA, AA, BA, etc. to have enough seats to cover the demand, either.

It's not so much about a local need for SEA-IST, but rather, the aggregate amount of people going to ADD, ASM, LWO, KIV, ODS, and India.

TK29 IST-EWR 1315-1720 A333
TK30 EWR-IST 2230-1515 A333




They did previously fly to EWR. They opted to consolidate at JFK.


When exactly? I can't find anything from 1996 per say...

If memory serves me correct they served EWR from 1991-1993 with a A310.


TK flew to EWR previously, in the 1990s and I think up to the early 2000s. They used the A340-300 mainly. They consolidated at JFK. UA flew EWR-IST in 2013 on a 767-300ER.

Will one of the major American carriers return to IST in the future?

I would think SEA first, over the other two.


Forgot about SEA, they are a hole as well. I’d still put DFW just slightly ahead of SEA, but SEA is definetly far ahead of DEN. Nonetheless, I think all 3 are strong contenders.

There's more than what's on the surface, concerning SEA. Much like the previously mentioned DEN situation concerning Ethiopians and Eritreans, there are a lot in SEA, too. But there are lots of people that go to Moldova and Western Ukraine in Seattle, too. And they need either VIE, WAW, MUC or IST to have one-stop connections. Neither of those flights exist from SEA. Also EK had cut the DXB flight from twice a day, to just once, last year. So, you have a certain amount of Indians, who used to take EK before, needing a new connection.

Yes, SEA does have DL to AMS and CDG. But no KL/AF connections to Addis. Or to Ukraine/Moldova. Yes, LH has a FRA flight, but leaves in the afternoon, and gets in too late to make(usually double) connections to LWO, KIV, ODS, etc. You cannot count on them to have that many available seats. Nor, similarly, you cannot count on UA, AA, BA, etc. to have enough seats to cover the demand, either.

It's not so much about a local need for SEA-IST, but rather, the aggregate amount of people going to ADD, ASM, LWO, KIV, ODS, and India.


I am not at all disagreeing with your points, I absolutely believe SEA deserves TK, but what you said about SEA can be said about DFW as well. And as a reminder, DFW serves an area that is almost double the population of SEA and does not have as many foreign flag carriers. There are a high amount of Indians (more than Seattle) and other foreigners in the metroplex that would use a TK flight.

Doubtful. TK owns the US-Turkey market, and security considerations probably add cost to what for US airlines would be a seasonal route, not a year round one. I think the FAA temporarily suspended TK from flying between the US and Turkey last year or the year prior, for few days. In short, it is a volatile market and not quite the tourist destination that it was until 2014-2015.

If a US Airline were to return to Istanbul, it would most likely be United, but it does not need to, given that TK is a Star Alliance member.

I just don't see Delta resuming JFK-IST. It probably does not see it as a hole in its offering out of JFK but if it did, it would fly it with an A330-300 or a 767-400ER.

If TK flies then from IST (Star Alliance hub) to both JFK and EWR (Star Alliance hub), what would the the odds for TK SAW - EWR ?
SAW does have a (minor) TK hub operation.

DFW, DEN, LAS, DTW, MCO and SEA could well deserve TK, however DEN does have being an Star Alliance hub on its favour.
I'm not on CM's payroll.

I highly doubt it. Despite millions of tourist coming to Turkey Dept. Of State still considers Turkey as a country that a non essential travel should not take place. It's a bit political move if you ask me.
