Looking in from an outsider’s perspective, I’m more surprised that Turkish doesn’t already fly to these destinations. These are two hubs, especially so with Dallas, so for them to announce that they’re intending to operate there definitely surprises me, not in the way that you’d think at least.
wait… WHAT?? First Air France and now this? Awesome! I hope they announce specifics soon! I hope they do succeed as they are a star alliance partner with United, and with that, that should provide a lot of opportunities. Great to hear that DEN is recovering still!
y did no one tag me these matters are important geez
As another IFC member mentioned to me in chats, Turkish seems to be trying to going head-on against Qatar. It’s like, TK is trying to be the one of the central Middle Eastern carriers (Although LTFM is in Europe, Turkey as a whole is considered part of the Middle East).
So far, Qatar & Turkish seem to be on path to recovering quickly & expanding as compared to Emirates & Etihad (suffering from previous losses & bans on target markets). It’ll be interesting to see what goes forward.
Qatar doesn’t serve Vancouver, Toronto, Newark, & Denver (these are airports TK currently flies/will fly to). On the other hand, Turkish doesn’t fly to Seattle, Charlotte, & Philadelphia (which QR flies to).
