Hi all,

I have a question regarding transfering through Istanbul. I'm flying from Dublin to Tashkent (Return) through Istanbul in Sept. On the way out we land at 22.55 from Dublin and leave for Tashkent at 00.30, so thats 1.35 transfer time. On the way back we land in Istanbul from Tashkent at 06.00 and leave again at 07.25, so 1.25 transfer time.

Is this sufficient time to get through and make our connecting flights based on a.netters experience?

It will be my first time flying TK, so I'm looking forward to it!

Thanks all


I’m on that flight shortly with a similar connection. Looking at it last few days it seems to routinely be 30-60 minutes late landing in IST which is a worry!

Not great. But Dublin is increasingly congested on the airfield these days and OTP overall isn't great. Being peak summer and all. For me, I'm not too worried about it currently, I'll have a look closer to Sept when it will hopefully be a bit better, with kids back to school etc.

I hope you manage to make the connection, let me know how you get on!!

Has anyone seen this before? On the TK app it lets you select seats 100 days before departure. On the first day I selected a seat and that was fine, a day or so later I changed it but now when I go in it is locked and all other seats show the same way as pre 100 days and unavailable? Not a big deal as i have my seat but just curious why they would go unavailable again?

After his trip to China, the President said he made a request on behalf of TK to add more destinations there and the process has been started.

Assuming this is true and all goes well, what will the likely destinations be? Xi’an and Xiamen and/or others?

Also what about Shenzhen? I think it would definitely be on the list with its manufacturing prominence and 18 million population (with flights even to places like Tehran and Vienna) but I can’t be sure since the city is right between Guangzhou and Hong Kong.

INT or DOM ?
On my phone today, I was looking at my upcoming reservations for next month and I was able to select a seat for DOM flight. Not INT flight though.

I am sure there are others with better info but AFAIK, the windows are repaired on...
-LLA and should do the Trabzon flight tomorrow, followed by the AYT flights the next day.
-LLB is ready for delivery and possibly will be delivered next week :airplane:
-LLC should be ready for first flight in a week or so.
So, I would definitely not worry about the schedule and get a ticket for later this coming week to AYT.

One question: we not that TK is not anle to expand in India due to bilateral, how is the situation in Pakistan and Bangldesh, how are loads? I remember a news at Hurriyet 1 year ago which was claiming second daily flight to Dakka and an other city in Bagladesh after arrival of new planes. Any idea? If yes i think second daily should be a midnight departure but i am not sure about loads

saw the news that an increase of international departure tax for Turkish citizen is proposed at the parliament. Nowadays, Turkish people pay 15 TRY for every departure; the proposed tax should be as high as 50 TRY. The tax doesn't apply to foreigners as well as Turkish citizen living abroad.

Is there any other nation like Turkey more or less penalizing its own citizens? And what about business people, how come the parliament doesn't see the disadvantages on macro level? With current currency exchange rates, unemployment and inflation, it's the last stab to the wound of people. Majority simply can't afford any global travel anymore. Of course, with the lira so much devaluated the Turkish carriers bring in many tourists, so not so much impact on the overall aviation business; however, it's a pity that your huge economy and big population can't travel as easily as one would wish.

Please correct me if I am wrong since I have been living abroad for so many years that I forgot; was not that amount US$100, many many years ago when it was first implemented ?

Tax capture is low in Turkey due evasion so being able to generate funds via things like ticket taxes is effective.
Yes such taxes historically can hurt travel demand but the end result likely be net positive for state in ability to generate income.

Yes taxation of aviation is an easy target for governments.

Its good atleast they understand value of foreign visitors to the economy and wont be taxing them or transit clients.

I thought that might be the case. I've told in the past that on a 77W J you can enjoy almost 4 windows to yourself, on 787s, it could be as little as one. It is always a great feeling landing at night at JFK in Business Class, when you are sitting in the middle section and when you look to your right or left and when the plane banks, you could see the city unobstructed. On 787s you will not none any of that. That is one drawback.
The other one will be; not being able to sit next to each other for couples. On 787s, there are 16 windows seats for single traveling travelers. And in the middle only 4 rows have the "Married" side by side two seats. In TK's J class pax profile, that is not going to be enough to accommodate families traveling together.
Good thing that I will have a choice from JFK-IST. I hope to have at least one of the three daily flights to be on the 787 in the future.

I think it all comes down to diversity. There are different types of business travelers, some like the open space and being able to sit together, while others want more privacy, seclusion and a personal luxious space like on the 787. I think this is a good move by TK who are now trying to appeal to the more privated travelers who maybe disliked the old BC because of that reason. Its like a double edged sword. You are pleasing one passengers while dissapointing the other and vice versa. You get the best and worse of both worlds in a sense. And then I guess there would be people like me who dont really mind and like both.

Exactly, for that reason alone I always sit in the middle section of the 77W J class with direct aisle access seat and have only 50% chance that someone might want to jump over me to go to the restroom and bump into me. Now, as an anutter I can always get a window seat and not worry about it :)

I think it's going to be daily double flight.

But in the coming months (when the 789 fleet grows up...), the evening flights will be at later hours. Possibly, during the daytime one 789 will do:

Some random news.

o THY and Cuba Ministry of Culture and Tourism signed an agreement to boost tourism. In 2018 some 18,000 Turks vacationed in Cuba. In addition, Turkish tourism companies will be given the opportunity to develop facilities in 2 new tourism zones being developed in Cuba.

o As previously discussed TK increased CCS service on June 19th with two weekly turn around flights (not via HAV) due to strong demand. In internal TK news bulletin, it was posted CCS service has seen 87 percent load factor during first half of 2019.

o Sun Express will build its own maintenance facility and employ its own maintenance staff. Plans for hangar in AYT was submitted to DHMI. Currently, most overhaul work is performed by TK at IST/SAW or LH Technic. Airline says Turkey's big advantage in terms of labor cost prompted the decision by the carrier to invest in its own facilities. Hangar expected to open in 2021.

TK already advertises their Cuba route here in France. I am sure bulk of passengers are probably Europeans on these services.

Quite impressive. TK seems to be the expert at making challenging markets avoided by others work - Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Afghanistan, etc.

That is correct and they have been offering nett fares to European Tour Operators in a bid to increase sales from key markets Via IST. Seems to be working.

There is a AYT-AMS flight I want to book that says Involatus 8Q851. What does this mean? Is it still operated by Onur Air?
But when I go directly to their website, I cant select a flight from AYT to AMS but they have operated them on flight radar... I am confused

seems to me like a full-charter flight on behalf of a tour operator. never heard of involatus though...
the weekly flight can be booked via expedia, just tried it...

I booked the TK1952 to get on the 787 departing from AMS. Looking at the seat map.. what seat would give me a nice center wing view like this?
