I guess 3 weekly nonstop might be less attractive for business travellers who can now fly any given day. What could be done is have 3 weekly nonstop and 4 weekly via JNB. As demand picks up more nonstops can replace 1-stops.

Certainly a daily flight is needed for Johannesburg, attracting business travel, but for Cape Town which is more leisure orientated I don't think it's that important for daily flights. Considering that they can't carry any pax on JNB-CPT, they must be losing money on that leg of the route, I doubt that more than 50% carries on to CPT. Otherwise if they could do CPT via another African city and get 5th freedom right to carry pax between CPT and that city as well, good possibilities could be Kinshasa or Lusaka...both routes where there is no airline flying nonstop to CPT, and not taking away from Star Alliance partner SAA.
People are really not fond of the more than 1 hour stop in JNB, with many of the pax onto CPT is also connecting in IST.

Booked a ticket on Turkish. Their website is buggy as hell. Half the stuff doesn't work. That's unacceptable for such a big airline!

It probably has to do with the fact that Turkey has some of the lowest levels of bureaucratic red tape in the world and therefore it must be very easy for them to set up new routes quickly and make them operational.

Looks like Turkish Airlines is planning to start non-stop service from Istanbul-Atatürk to Houston.

IAH will soon offer flights to Turkey

So that will be TK's 5th US destination once operational next year...

Currently they're flying from Istanbul and Ankara to NYC, Chicago, LA and DC.

Rumor has it that Turkish Airlines is also planning to start service to Boston, Atlanta, Miami, and Detroit as well, so potentially Turkish Airlines will serve nine US destinations in total if Turkish Airlines decides to serve all of these markets.

It looks like there will be a Turkish order for the big widebody's at next months Farnborough Airshow. It doesn't matter if they go for the 747 or the A380, it will be a big step in capacity for Turkish Airlines.

Quote:
Turkish Air May Order 15 Airbus or Boeing Jumbos Next Month

Turk Hava Yollari AO, or Turkish Airlines, will order at least 15 jumbo airliners valued at $4 billion from Airbus SAS (EAD) or Boeing Co. (BA) as early as next month as it adds routes and seeks acquisitions in emerging markets.

Europe’s fifth-largest carrier plans to purchase Airbus A380 or Boeing 747-8 planes for delivery after 2014, Chairman Hamdi Topcu said in an interview in Istanbul.

Turkish Airlines is looking at jets bigger than Boeing’s 330-seat 777, currently the carrier’s largest model, as it seeks to lure transfer traffic between Europe and Asia away from rivals Air France-KLM Group, Deutsche Lufthansa AG (LHA) and British Airways-parent International Consolidated Airlines Group SA. (IAG)

-
-

Neo, MAX

While the emphasis will be on adding bigger planes, the carrier is also interested in the Airbus A320 Neo and Boeing 737 MAX narrow-bodies, the executive said.

full article:
http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-0...ext-month.html
There's also a mention of interest in the NEO and/or the MAX, but that's not really news of course. Their current narrowbody fleet is split between the A320 and the 737 families, a follow up order of the newer versions is only logical. It will only be news if they will choose only one of the newest instead of a split order.

The unofficial state "embargo" on French products due to political tension between both states has been finally suspended couple of days ago. This might be a step in favor of the A380.

Btw, here a great picture:

Can someone know what type of aircraft is used by TK for the Algiers - Istanbul regular flight ? With some photos, if possible..

You can check yourself. Just fill in the dates you want to fly and click on "detailed information" and you'll see what airplane they use. I have checked some dates and 70% they were using A 330 and 30% A340.

A 330


A 340

Two armrests in the middle, that's pretty generous!
