Article in Polish about Turkish and A380 - "A380 isn't fit for their fleet".
http://www.pasazer.com/news/26277/tu...zej,floty.html

- too big in passenger capacity
- it can't be maintained by many airports
- fuel burn per passanger isn't sufficient
- too small cargo capacity
- delivery date is a factor too, they want first VLA in early 2016 when A380 can be delivered in 2017 at best
- high price comparised to 747-8, they said with order for 10-15 747-8Is price can be as low as 270mln USD

so order for 10 747-8I + 5 options during Paris air show 2015?

That article is ridiculous. They claim it's too big and fuel inefficient but delivery date was a factor?

With 2 x MH A380's available for delivery immediately I wouldn't be surprised if TK test drive the type prior to placing an order of 6 plus purchase the remaining MH birds.

Turkish Airline should but B747-8 because most of the worlds airport can handle B747 but not A380 it would look cool

Since when do the Pollacks have credible inside information about TKs future wide body fleet plans??? That source of information is about as reliable as the Polish Solar Powered Flash Light....

Actually, just last week in an interview, the TK CEO specifically said that they turned down that option.

Quote:
Skift: Letís switch gears a bit and talk about whether or not you plan to lease back any of the Malaysia Airlines aircraft?


Kotil: We said no to doing that actually. Of course 380s are nice, good aircraft but this isnít part of our plan. Malaysia is recovering, itís a good airline and Iíve flown with them several times. The second accident in Ukraine was really an unfortunate one and everyone blamed Malaysia Airlines for that but they were the victims actually. Hopefully they will continue to recover.
Now, TK has been known to say that they were close for a decision before, and that they have been "evaluating" for years, so whether this should carry any more or less weight is really up in the air. At the least though, it should mean that the polish article quoted earlier needs to be given the same consideration with respect to weight.

Original article here.
