TK should be sending an A321 to Bishkek (TK344/5) on the 25th! This route is very strictly 737 operated. I've only ever seen 2 A321s on it, both were A321neos sent last month. This time, if there's no swap, it should be an A321-231, so an A321ceo, my first time seeing an A321 on the route.
That's not to mention where some of the old TC-JFx/JGx aircraft have been (Khartoum, Malaga, Marseille, Cairo) and A330s to places like Dublin (not as rare as everything else mentioned), Bordeaux and Strasbourg.
I wonder if the MAX groundings have some role to play because I've also noticed that the Africa routes that usually get TC-JYA to TC-JYJ have been getting TC-JYL to JYP and more 737-800s than usual.
There's also a 77W scheduled for Vienna on August 27th. Interesting times indeed.
That route has developed quite nicely, a while ago it got upgraded to A332, now it's A333 and soon B77W.
In other news, Pegasus is moving its Kiev operations to KBP.
