I wish I had more time to do a recap of this last year, but unfortunately that have to wait.
But here it is; one of the more exciting news of this year:
Atlasjet ordering 10+5 CS300s and Pegasus might go for 100NBs, probably 737s;
Let's wait and see how this unfolds but congrats to all parties involved;

As usual most of the news come from TK;
-Out of the 3 remaining 333s left to join the fleet, 2 of them are almost ready.
-TK announced bunch of new routes depending on plane availibility; like, Abuja, Kano, Novosibirsk, Ulanbator, Bilbao, La Coruna, Mogadishu.....
-We are still waiting for Manila, or the proposed extension of IST-GRU route to EZE.
-Somehow YYZ frequency supposed to go from 3 to 4 weekly.
-One fact check; Hamdi Topcu of TK made a remark back in January 2011 that by the end of the year TK's fleet to reach 180-200 jets. Even that sounded strange, 20 frames is a lot of play room, within a companies 12 month growth plan. But now that we are in December that number will be actualized, probably around 182-184.
-Hopefully by this time next month TK 739ERs will be flying out of IST.
