My wish has been granted!
Beginning March 24, TK will have decoupled the Dhaka, Bangladesh flights from a [rather useless] stop in Karachi, Pakistan. So, now instead of the midnight IST
routing ... the flights leave IST
early evening and reach Dhaka early morning. GREATLY reducing time from the connections. So, instead of the 30+ hours JFK
routing I did in October 2011, I could soon do the same trip in 18 hours with less than 2 hours in transit ... and about 20 hours total on the way back. Amazing ... kudos to the planners!
[Note: I was checking flights options for June and ran into this by accident. And then checked each month and found that the new routing starts March 24. If any of you have seen the official release, please share. Thanks!]
Hope this is the sign of loads picking up and future daily flights!
Here are new flight times ...
TK712 IST1820 - DAC0500 333 1457
TK713 DAC0620 - IST1155 333 1256
