Also PEK (04:25), PVG (05:20), HKG (05:25) and CAN (05:50) 777 arrivals are in the same wave among other routes.

Yes, connecting from FarEast to JFK will be good, but in the other direction a disaster as the flights to FarEast depart around midnight and the last flight from JFK arrive to IST before 6pm. So 6 hours connection time is a lot, isn't it? How is it with other airlines?

This is incredible news for this NY'er. I wonder if UA will still go ahead with their plans.
I totally agree with Bahadir TK3-4 will beat the traffic both in IST and JFK, on the roads and in the air.

The timings are certainly different . We may see surprises about the popularity of this . Id say it will do well.

IST-GRU to be extended to EZE inclusive of 5th freedom traffic rights in June this year. Well I wasn't expecting this to happen so soon; considering the TAM deal. Great news though, looking forward to visit EZE.

QR flies the same GRU-EZE-GRU route. Any idea about the yields?

TK bird had 4 hours 55 minutes layover time at GRU. A little adjustment would do the job for TK since, GRU-EZE takes 3 hours 5 minutes and EZE-GRU takes 2 hours 35 minutes.

1 hr at GRU to disembark and board new pax, 3 hr to EZE, 1 hr (optimistic ?) to turn the plane around, 2.5 hrs to GRU, and 1 hr at GRU adds up to 8.5 hrs, this is 3.5 hours more than current layover. I don't know if they can pull back their departure from IST any earlier from 10:45am as it is now. Does this mean we will see departures from GRU moved from current 00:15 slot to around 4am? or maybe a morning departure? But that would mean arriving around 9:30pm, which means no connectivity.

they can not operate all the way to EZE with only one crew; therefore, the crew doing IST-GRU will operate GRU-EZE-GRU the next day.

Not necessarily. Eastbound flights depart after 23:00 (exception of NRT). Current GRU-IST flight arrives at 17:35 which makes it possible.

QR layover times: 1:[email protected]GRU, 2:[email protected]EZE, 1:[email protected]GRU. If TK can manage to have 1:15 turnover time at EZE, it all looks possible. They do manage 1:30 turnaround at NRT.

it is a tough one to turn the aircraft in EZE in 1:15h. also, you have to consider that QR uses the 77L with 259 seats wheras TK operates the 77W with 337. Doesn't really sound that much of difference, but 78 people to deboard and board also take some time.

If my memory serves right 777 has 100 minutes turnaround time in IST. I don't know about EZE dynamics, turn around time is mostly ground handling depended. If TK choose a good company and goes strong can be done . But in best circumstances whole operation will be like a paper tower. Smallest delay in IST departure can trigger whole 777 fleet a chain of delays.

In european stations the ground time remains the same whether the operating aircraft is A321 or B777, I've seen this aircraft being sent back to IST with only 50 min turnaround (full of PAX/cargo). However bear in mind fuel for these trips has nothing to do with the amount needed for IST-GRU/LAX, which fueling by itself may take more than 60 minutes...

Turkish Airlines will revise and increase its operations in Belgrade from 7 to 12.

New flights:

IST-BEG-IST
TK 1081 07:45-08:25
TK 1082 09:20-12:00

IST-BEG-IST (except Wed and Sat)
TK 1083 19:45-20:20
TK 1084 20:20-23:00

This means that there will be three daily flights between Belgrade and Istanbul this summer with Jat Airways increasing from 5 weekly to daily.

--3-5-7
JU 420 09:35-12:15
JU 421 13:05-13:40

Does anyone know what the names are on the Pegasus aircraft? Are they place names or something else?

TC-CPB name on official English docs shows as "Do?a" but the ? is probably a non-English character. Perhaps you natives you figure it out.

That is probably because initially Abidjan will be served via Accra. Basically Cote d'Ivoire has allowed TK to fly passengers between Abidjan and Accra.

Also this year;

Part of the work will be carried out by MNG Technic. I never knew MNG was a retrofit partner with Air Partners Boeing. THY has been, but never knew MNG was one.

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/Azerba...-Orders-prnews-3920354125.html?x=0

I guess maintenance capabilities and partnerships are expanding fast in Turkey.

And speaking of maintenance, the first phase of the new $500million HABOM maintenance complex at SAW including a 11-bay narrow body hangar and workshops will be opening this summer.

According to me, an additional runway in IST is the only way to go for now. It would probably solve the congestion problems at the airport for at least another 5-10 years. In that time, they would have more time to plan a future 3rd airport in Istanbul. The only remark I have on the proposal is: why make the proposed new runway 60m wide? The standard 45m should be more than sufficient and more economic as well.

On a completely different note. Does anyone know the yearly results for pax airlines in Turkey for 2011? Who ended up in black and who ended up in red? Turkish, Pegasus, Atlas, Onur, Sunexpress, Freebird, Tailwind, Corendon, Sky etc....

Area of purposed runway is already occupied with building etc. The cost of demolition and paying for their owners will be huge. This job will be end like 3rd runway, there will be runway but less useful. IST is in the middle of city, will be face off night closure in future.

If there is more time planning no one move his ss and wait until everything become a mess. Adding military section to civil airport is idea for 15 years but no one did it. Even simpler, small buildings around control tower can not move to make additional parking spaces. There is one solution, hit the axe, kill IST and build a new airport from scratch. But new airport should not designed; a working 100 mil. capacity airport should copy one by one or talks for design etc stucks everything 

On the other hand 3 rd IST JFK flight announced officially, will be available between May 28 and September 16, 2012. JFK gets double daily after 25 Mar.

it is again from the foreign exchange . Many firms with liabilities in FX have this problem . HOWEVER, year end rate was, if I am not mistaken, close to 1.90 whereas it is 1,75 today . Multiply the liabilities with the difference of the exchange rate you get the FX profit as of today .. Let's wait what the axchange rate will be on march 31st ...For the actual performance LAXintl's comments would be no match to mine ..

That's huge and eats the profit of the last years. But i don't think this will have personal consequences... Not in Turkey.
Quoting leftyboarder (Reply 95):

A huge loss indeed.. Let's see how 2012 turns out, hopefully better. Over 2bn in forex losses? What's up with that?

I also think that the size of the 2011 loss should have consequences. I know TK is growing and investing heavily and a loss was to be expected, but these numbers are disturbing.

It was also announced that Turkish Airlines will be increasing flights to Tashkent from 5 weekly to daily. Also the route sees new schedule, like most of the summer adjustments.
