TK to down gauge India

Fri Mar 29, 2019 12:33 pm

Just noticed that from q3 2019 Turkish will replace the 777-300ER to Mumbai and New Delhi to A330’s and 787’s. Does this mean Kq are taking them back?

5 DEL and 19 BOM rotations are surely not anywhere near of an indication of downgauge nor the return of 77W to KQ.

6E is adding 14 weekly flights, and they are in partnership. I would call it more of capacity rationing.

I would bet that it's because KQ will receive their 777s back. They have already stated they will be getting back their 787s from Oman and 777s from TK sometime this year.

Comes in conjunction with IndiGo's entry into IST - keep in mind.

I thought the 777s were to big for KQ? KQ should just outright sell them to TK since TK could put them to good use on select routes when the new airport opens up

Really not news. One aircraft will be down for maintenance for the period, hence the aircraft sub.

In the broader picture, all 3 KQ birds planned to return in 2020 at the end of their leases.
