Pegasus can develop ESB as a secondary hub may be until SAW is restricted this can help add additional potential for growth. Pegasus may also well look into acquiring some wide body a/c (i.e. A330) on ceratin havy demand routes and can increase pax without additinal slots, a wide body in a high density configuration would work well in SAW BJV, SAW AYT, SAW ADB rotations actually.


I also agree that Pegasus can easily fill up a wide body like a330neo for summertime routes like SAW-BJV, SAW-AYT, maybe even SAW-ADB / SAW-DLM but what the hell can they do with those wide body frames (say 3 to 4 planes) during the winter time table? Also the turnaround time of any wide body will take pretty much longer than a narrow body... But it might be more on their behalf to convert some of the future coming a320neo's to a321neo's.

If and when AnadoluJet ends up with a fleet of 57 738s, the average fleet age will be around 13 years. (I am assuming they will inherit most of the aged 738s in TK's red tail fleet).

Do you really think they can adequately compete against Pegasus's much younger fleet (now aged around 5 years) and formed by 320/321neo's?


Anadolu Jet may suddenly end up with 75 brand new 737MAX, then TK would be MAX free. :)

Baha, I imagine you are referring to the existing runway pairs as 4 total runways. (34L, 34R, 35L, 35R)
In fact, they are two runways with two back ups. We will never see 34L and 34R being used as simultaneous operations for example. Or 3/4 of them at the same time.
That is why this first runway being completed on the East side of the terminal will be the 3rd runway (Runway C) and it will not have a back up runway next to it.
That is what I gather, please correct me if this info is wrong.

A first at New IST:

A Thai AW (TG) a380 diverted to IST today morning, while en route from Bangkok to Frankfurt due to a medical emergency.

The suffering pax and his two companions stayed in Istanbul and he was hospitalised immediately.

TK will be reducing frequencies from IST to Bologna, Dubrovnik, Ekaterinburg, Gothenburg, Naples, Pisa, Riga, Samara, Tallinn while Stockholm will have the A330 replaced with A321.

Anyone know the reason for these cuts? Could there be more financial pressure on TK?

TK does not have endless supply of widobodies so are shifting a/c between destinatinos depending on the demand in my opinion, also TK is quite famous with last minute equipment change and will not be surprsied to see A330 being used in some these routes on occassion.

Quite an suppoort form Government to make IST work and sanction SAW pawing the way for TK to concentrtae on IST flights, wish more regional flights were commenced with a/c like A220 to Greek islands (Mykonos etc.) as well as nearby niche markets that has tremendous potential in the summer month. I flew Aegean (Olympic) from ADB to ATH last summer and on both ways the flight was 100% full.

TK is trying to save $250M this year.
I think moving to IST and cost related to that is one major part of it.

That's quite a sum! So you think it's all related to the move to the new airport? I read in various sources that the new airport is quite expensive to maintain and operate out of, don't know if you have more information on that?

Yes.... and from what I see on other sites; a combination of things like; not having Do&Co on site, have to deal with combining Cargo ops between IST and ISL, even the longer taxi durations at IST, losing the Domestic pax to SAW/Pegasus and probably the biggest reason is the overall state of the Turkish economy.
Just about 24 months ago USD was 3.81TL, today it is 5.90TL.

Ouch... but why haven't they moved Do&Co to the new airport? I mean it has been quite a while since they moved there, same with cargo.

Very simple: for budget reasons, for "political" reasons and for timing reasons. Specifically for Do&Co, there has been a period when THY and Do&Co (Austrian parent company) started a battle and discussed (seriously) to part their ways. Even THY came to a preliminary agreement with SATS. Then they reached a supposedly "happy end" for the next 25 years! :?

But, in any case TK first set up a line maintenance hangar at IST. They also setup a satellite catering center (where stuff have been received from Do&Co at AHL, and loaded aboard TK planes), also a small commercial cargo handling facility (for the belly cargo) and a big, hi-tech crew terminal and command center. These obviously had priorities. The new and pretty big/modern Do&Co facility is under construction at the moment. A cargo terminal is being built in the Cargo City Area. A second big MRO hangar is erected and will be enlarged/supplemented in the specific area allocated for base MRO activities. Furthermore, THY's new HQ Building will be built and finally (but after several years...) a gigantic MRO hangar/facility will be built opposite to the present day Main Terminal (T-1) -- on the Black Sea looking side, instead of the Satellite Terminal shown in the original plans.

Mon Jan 20, 2020 2:52 pm

The New York Times published an article a few hours ago about the TK1951 crash in 2009 titled "How Boeing’s Responsibility in a Deadly Crash ‘Got Buried’". I remember the Turkish side claiming some of the things mentioned in the article but these objections were treated as biased.

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/20/business/boeing-737-accidents.html

After a Boeing 737 crashed near Amsterdam more than a decade ago, the Dutch investigators focused blame on the pilots for failing to react properly when an automated system malfunctioned and caused the plane to plummet into a field, killing nine people.

The fault was hardly the crew’s alone, however. Decisions by Boeing, including risky design choices and faulty safety assessments, also contributed to the accident on the Turkish Airlines flight. But the Dutch Safety Board either excluded or played down criticisms of the manufacturer in its final report after pushback from a team of Americans that included Boeing and federal safety officials, documents and interviews show.


"Turkish Airlines disputes crash inquiry findings on stall recovery"
http://archive.is/steYU

But cockpit-voice recorder analysis shows that the captain also called that he was taking control, just as the thrust levers had been pushed halfway forward. "Assumingly, the result of this was that the first officer's selection of thrust was interrupted," says the final report into the crash.
Crucially, as the first officer relinquished the thrust levers to hand over control, the still-engaged autothrottle immediately retarded them again to the idle position.
"Directly thereafter, the autothrottle was disengaged," says the inquiry report. "But for a period of seven seconds the thrust levers were not moved forwards from the idle position."
While the investigation could not determine whether the captain had placed his hands on the thrust levers, it says that nine seconds passed between the activation of the stick-shaker and the movement of the thrust levers to maximum.
By this point the aircraft had already stalled and the remaining height of 350ft was "insufficient for the recovery procedure", it adds.
Turkish Airlines says the autothrottle "kicked back unexpectedly" and that Boeing "had not mentioned", in its documentation, a need to disconnect the autothrottle during the procedure.
The carrier also describes the relationship between the left-hand radio altimeter and the autothrottle as "error-prone", adding that it was not explained in Boeing's documentation for flight crews until after the crash.
While acknowledging that disengagement of the autothrottle is not described in the recovery procedure, the Dutch Safety Board highlights the problems of incomplete knowledge of the aircraft's interdependent systems. It points to the crew's suffering from "automation surprise" with respect to the autothrottle's behaviour - during both the original loss of thrust on approach and the attempted stall recovery.
Turkish Airlines also claims that simulator tests show that a height of at least 500ft is required for the 737-800 to recover successfully from a stall, and that the ill-fated jet was already below this level when the pilots initiated the recovery procedure.

787, not sure doing AYT any longer, doing some domestic trips but very minimal. Because, besides the usual Long Haul routes I saw 787s performed CMN, TLV and ATH. But if you are looking a few weeks into the future there will be one or more 787s joining the fleet and AYT might be in the mix. There are 3 x 787s almost ready and 2 more about to come off the line soon, which all of them will join TK by mid March. Bon Voyage :)

Turkish tourism is still trying to close the gap from TC. Good job for Corendon. I wish they opted for A320's and not max. Same goes for sunexpress, they will suffer heavily this summer

Just had 2 flights with TK this Week. Log the 789 at the 3rd try. From AND. Economy class was 50% full. Food and crew very good and damn im an Airbus man but 789 is great. Return the next day in business to FRA. So lounge was like always very good. But the walk beetween gates too much really even i found a really good place for spotting. I catched one of the ex 9W 332. Please stored them. This seats are showing their age for sure. Monitor didnt came out and others minor things. Anyway food and crew also very good . Pls keep so go on TK

Today I was on TK/EK combo for ESB/SAW/DXB route, all on business. TK flight to SAW was completely full. People were applying for waiting list while I was checking in. TK management has to do something about poor connectivity between ESB and SAW.

Food on TK domestic service was way better than EK. I also don’t like EK’s rude FAs.

EDIT: Finally, it is off. It was majestic.

I guess this is the full YouTube Live video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_cont ... e=emb_logo

But here's an interesting point: Watch carefully the shooting starting minute 17 (17-18-19). There you can openly count three (not two) TK 789s in line. But at the time of shooting this video, TK's 7th Dreamliner (the TC-LLG) had already left for IST. So there seems to be the 10th TK 789 (presumably TC-LLJ) on PAE, at least fresh out of the production line. Maybe one frame is not already fully painted! :?: :?

Any comments?

Hamburg to get a daily A330-300, I wasn't expecting that.


Why?! Already in 2019 HAM was daily Airbus A330 - so nothing new for HAM!

There are posts, that KK suspended their ops until February 09th 2020: https://simpleflying.com/atlasglobal-suspension-again/

However, according to flightradar24, operations are being to normal: https://www.flightradar24.com/data/aircraft/tc-agg

Any more info please?!

I was at PAE on Jan 18th and there were 3 painted TK 787s, so might be a 10th one?

It was supposed to have 4x A332s and 3x A321s on that particular flight. Now it's going to have a daily A330-300, that's a decent-sized increase if you ask me.

The two remaining A330 flew to SNN yesterday, TC-AGD and TC-AGF, TC-AGL was already flown to MPL earlier last year.

Only 2 A321, TC-ATF and TC-AGG, are left in the fleet, and operate to Teheran, Baghdad, Tel Aviv

Somewhat strange to see that Basaksehir is the only Turkish team left in international club football this season. But at least they will leave a mark on flight radars etc, using an A330-300 of Turkish Airlines for their round of 16 trip to Lisbon next month:

And, which version of the 333s in TK's fleet? The ex-Skymark ones (7 frames, with "recliner" type of J seats), which are mostly used in regional routes actually can carry 305 pax., more seats than the other 333s can do.

Corendon to fly during the summer between Munster/Osnabruck and Zonguldak according to airporthaber.com
I don't know the schedule but imagine it will be 1x or 2x per week, and at very off-peak times
