With TK50/TK51 restarting next April on 3x weekly, could we see it being switched to HND, with NH picking up the other 4 days (accounting for the 0.5 slot).

Until 2014, Turkey saw more Japanese visitors than Koreans even though Korean Air and Asiana both flew to Istanbul while no Japanese carrier did. Japanese passengers will typically pay more to fly on a Japanese carrier than a foreign one, adding to prospects for ANA.
Lufthansa initially rejected ANA from cooperating with LOT Polish Airlines since Lufthansa would have preferred any ANA-LOT passengers to fly ANA-Lufthansa. Even though LOT is part of ANA and Lufthansa’s Star Alliance, JVs take priority. Turkish is also in Star Alliance, but has an especially constrained relationship with Lufthansa. Turkish is a rising connector airline, akin to the Gulf superconnectors that also challenge Lufthansa’s connecting traffic.
