Few things to look forward to in 2015:
-AnadoluJet is to get 3 Ejets from Borajet. Hopefully RJs become a part of the bigger TK family once again.
-TK to start SFO, MNL, Taipei, Abuja, CPT, Luanda (the ones I can remember) in 2015. I have a feeling MEX, and Latin America routes start in 2015 also.
-Pegasus to get 2 x brand new 738s
-AnadoluJet to get 2 x brand new 738s and 3 x 739s for the first time in 2015
-TK to receive 7 x 333s, 7 x 77Ws, 5 x 739ERs and 13 A321WL this year.
-Is this the year we see 343s saying farewell to TK, or with the low oil prices they keep going for another year
-Is this the year we see new uniforms?? (After that mishap with leaked photos it is all quiet)
-Is this the year we see another big LH order 330NEO/77X or 350/787??
-Istanbul and TK will have to deal with crowded IST for how many more years? The new airport will be on track?
-Which will come first? Another US airline to Istanbul or another Turkish airline to the US, or TK using SAW for widebody ops?
-Let's see what problems the low oil prices, turmoil in Ukraine and low Ruble will bring to TK?
And a fact check:
-In Dec 2014, TK predicted it will have 204 single aisle, 54 twin aisle, 9 Cargo planes at the end of 2014 for a total of 267frames. Also predicted that TK will fly to 259 destinations.
-In Jan 2014, TK predicted it will carry 26.2M pax domestic, 32.3M international pax for a total of 59.5Mpax
And TK's 2015 goals:
-214 single aisle, 68 wide body (343s staying?), 11 Cargo for a total of 293 aircraft at the end of 2015. 777F??
-25.9M domestic, 36M int. pax for a total of 63M pax in 2015. Why the decrease in Domestic pax no.?
