I am posting this from a very beautiful fall evening in Istanbul. I am sorry to cut the conversation short from the last months thread, about inefficient TK internet payment options, or the latest SKYFE. Please continue here.
By now, things should be calming down in Turkish aviation, not many frames arriving, planes being wet leased to other countries, numbers being announced for the busy summer season.

Here is my favorite Istanbul airport. Looks like there are 4 planes lined up for take off.
I love it, because using the TK Gold status entrance/security is a breeze. I wish the Lounge had a window to the tarmac.
Let's see what the coming years will bring to SAW with the new airport being built. Pegasus still has an order of few 738s coming next year, but 2016 is the year when they will start getting the 320s. ( a lot of them)
I wonder if TK will still have a presence at SAW after the huge airport opens up on the other side of town. Or Pegasus will seek gates at the new Istanbul airport. Whatever the case, it is a win win situation for the regular folks like us.
I am hoping for a JFK-SAW non stop in my lifetime.
I should conclude with more Pegasus news; they will start both Hurghada and Sharm el Sheik.
Welcome and please continue with your news, photos, rumors, and good old sense of humor.
