I think there is no need for cucuotto to change anybody 's mind. Speak with any expat and you'll see he is not even the more pessimist or negative. The company posted a massive loss in first quarter if the trend does not change ( and seen the geopolitical situation I cannot see how it could) I think we will be discussing of something else in the mid term future..

THY president and CEO is a puppeteer of the Turkish government, they brag about obeying Islamic law, but there is nothing more hypocritical than that on any Turkish citizen, watch RT television about Turkish dealings with ISIS in Syria, they are contaminated, as their wicked spirit.
THY has surpassed 300 aircraft, they brag about a new airport and English level 5 for recruitment; You will be surprised to find a crippled management who cannot reach English level 2.
Check PPRuNe on comments about former pilots who present work and worked for that outfit, make sure you do not out this airline in your resume, apathy and dismay, the traits of a wicked society under siege by a regimental system that supresses the freedom of speech.

Incidentally THY pay scales stink, compare with professional outfits in the Middle East, India or China, they double your salary and benefits, and provide a more pleasant lifestyle.

It looks like THY has used you like an engine: drained you, squeezed you, bang and blow everything out of you. You look more like a politician than a pilot.

Absolute rubbish

Since there is no country called Kurdistan, naturally, employing people who have such a passport will be very difficult. If you mean kurdish people you are wrong. Many pilots in TK are kurds and several are or have been occupying management positions.

@wisepilot: I do confirm. I know a lot pilots, cabin crewmembers, flying chefs, technicians, managers, office workers, other groundstaff with Kurdish roots.

@dignified: I'm just wondering what kind of association you have with Kurdish people, or in general. I think you don't have any clue. Just do better research

Many right comments about so many things except the Kurdish thing.
There is not a country called Kurdistan, so you cannot hold a passport which is assigned to Kurdish people. Kurdish is not an official country(yet) but just a race.
There are minimum 10 million Kurdish who are living within the borders of Republic of Turkey. All of them have got Turkish national identification and Turkish passports(of course people who hasn't applied for a passport doesn't have one)
Since your race is not written on neither of them, you cannot identify a Kurdish. There are so many of them married and having kids with other races living in Turkish Republic that you cannot even imagine.
60-70% of the parliament of the Republic of Turkey is Kurdish race somehow(either son/daughter or grandson/granddaughter of a Kurd). 19th prime minister ,then 8th president of Turkish Republic is Kurdish(look him up: Turgut Ozal). Under these circumstances it is clearly impossible to ignore or not recruit a Kurd in this region.
There are many military pilots in the Turkish Air Force whose mother or father is Kurdish, after retiring they go to Turkish Airlines and other companies in Turkey. Have flown with a lot of them and they are in general kind and professional.
I strongly suggest that you get your facts straight and do not rely on what other people tell you since you are one click away from Google. Other things you say are mostly true but this racist comment you did really irritated me, with many other people in this forum.
We have got bunch of cabin crew in all of the airline companies in Turkey, coming from Diyarbakir. This is a city where Kurdish population is more than 50% of the total population. I think the last number was around 70%.
I hope you apologize after reading this post and make your research for that racist comment of yours.

FOs. your is one of the best self analyses ever. I would summarize generally nice people with an horrible management and this both for the country and THY. You should react.. Kurds are like Basque in Spain many other minorities across EU..give them a bit of autonomy problem solved. The doubt is that this problem is most probably filling the pockets of someone son in law defense industrialist anyone ?

No one wants to give away 25-30% of their land just like that, hence the interest conflict.

Claiming that kurds are discriminated is nonsense. There is no problem as long as you aren't convicted of certain crimes. I understand some of the guys frustration about TK but let's keep the accusations a little bit more sensible or your demagogy will be hard to be taken seriously.

Sorry guys i think i am misunderstood.
I am not talking politics now. My point was to get the facts straight and do not get into politics at all on a pilot forum. I thought it is a pilot forum, isn't it?
Basque is something different. They didn't kill thir own people to get their support against the government, so that is an entirely different subject...

B777 salary for capts are about 38000T.L (averg.) before tax (5%)..
A nice 1bedroom apartment in a nice neighborhood should not normally exceed 3000T.L (avg. 2300TL)

Having flown and lived in all continents,I can say that Turks have been the kindest people I have ever met.
On a side note,the few daddy kids in here,puking their blatent racism in a constent and repetitive manner,aimed to comfort themselves that their dream carreer attempt simply failed,is not reflective of expat pilots.
Expat work is not for everyone,and one to succeed needs to grow a pair and take it upon himself rather than crying the daddy golden spoon hasnt followed them there as well.

Thank you guys for the information. And another question:
