Re: Flying the 777-300ER on a 200NM trip

Hello Warnernub, Thank you for your kind comment, glad you enjoyed it! IFE is never active on domestic flights they just keep it off. Business cabin seating is 2-3-2 on the 777. There is no premium economy though,only business and economy. From what I experienced flying economy on the 330(wide body ...

Hello dear friends, I had the chance to fly on the 777-300ER in business class between Ankara and istanbul Ataturk. The air distance according to Skyvector is 197NM, having flown this route previously on narrow body planes I expected the flight to go even faster on the mighty 77W but it was almost i...

Re: 3.5H delay + "fake" business class on Turkish.

As the captain stated it was due to very bad weather at Istanbul and crew but I don't know what it was about. Infact bad luck has been following me throughout this trip, the DUS strike, 3.5 delay to Izmir, 1H delay on my 777 flight etc. I think the biggest reason for me being dissapointed quickly wi...

3.5H delay + "fake" business class on Turkish.

Hello Dear friends, Part of flights I had recently was TK2354 to Izmir. As you know Turkish mostly flies 2-2 configuration on narrow body planes however some of their older 320&737's still have the "european style" fake business class seats. On that day flight was operated by TC-JPL, an 11years old ...

Finnair A350 to Tokyo

Hello Dear Friends,

This time not a "review" but more an avgeek video to share with you.
The Airbus 350 is amazingly quiet and comfortable to say the least.
Winter OPS were in effect out of Helsinki and we had a perfect sunny arrival into Tokyo.
Hope you enjoy!

Flying from Dusseldorf during the strike to bad weather in istanbul

Hello dear friends, I have recently flown on Turkish with their A330-300 and I must say it was a lot more than I expected in many ways. Infact the strike hit and the airport was crowded with travellers. There were very long queues to check-in at different airlines, at Turkish however it all went smo...

Re: On 25 February 2009, Turkish Airlines TK1951 crashed during landing at Amsterdam Schiphol

Yes indeed it happened at slow speed. Not the first this happens either they had the same incident somewhere in Scandinavia a few years back with the same type of aircraft, an A321 in the mud at IST as well as many I can't recall. It is not an issue in such places but I would hate to be out of runwa...

Hello Aviation 24 friends, I would like to share this wing view video for avgeeks who like me break their neck to watch that wing in action over and over every and each time! I have flown more than 100 times on the 737 but still can't travel like an average passenger. A window seat is a must and wat...

Re: Turkish airlines a320 business class domestic

They will transfer once for all. That is the main reason for them to postpone the transfer everytime they want to be fully ready once for all. On the other hand they simply cannot sell a ticket which does not mention there would be some sort of commuting in between airports.(would mention BRU-IST->I...

Re: Turkish airlines a320 business class domestic

Hello H.A. Yes they report on every and each flight prior to take off and landing. Infact there are a few flights operating out of ISL already for a few month now to include Baku, Ercan, Izmir,Antalya and Ankara to start with. Last I heard on the Turkish media was they expect the "big transfer" mid ...

Re: Flying from an Artificialy made island airport to Brussels

Infact, I just realised I should not call this an island but I think we all got why I called it so. André your picture is stunning! Flying Turkish very often and on various destinations, I see they are good but maybe lack a standard.(still growing? Growing too fast?) For instance some flights you ge...
