Thank you A330Inter and TK787
What a coincidence that I just received an email from TK this morning regarding a schedule change for my ticket.
it says departure time moved forward by 5 minutes on the same day. That's great. I guess it's happening.
You are welcome. But I do not think that is a guarantee that the flight is happening. (fingers crossed)
Now, you have to deal with the schedule change, which is one of my problems with TK.
-You do not automatically get a message/email about the schedule change. My last two tickets I did not. I had to find out on my own. Keep checking periodically.
-Online you are given three options, "Confirm", "Cancel", "Change" your new flight.
-When I clicked "Confirm" on one of my tickets, it asked me to call TK hotline. Second ticket, I wanted to "Cancel" it gave an error message, but few minutes later my flight was gone. The next day I got an email about a refund. Never easy.
This is what I learned; if the schedule change is longer than 15min. the passenger needs to be contacted and confirm that they are OK with the change. (It doesn't explain why you got an email with only 5 min change) If you do not confirm, you are not allowed to check-in online. Happened to me in Dubai few years back and I was really upset, with the help of the hotel in Dubai I was able to call TK and verbally OK that my flight will be taking off 5 minutes later than the scheduled time.
How about this one?? Same thing happens, when only the arrival time is changed. Really??? You still have to confirm that it is OK that flight takes off at the same time but now arrives 5 minutes early.
I really, really do not like to deal with these tiny changes
