They had major changes in flight ops department back in 2018. Now it seems the new ones give priority to friends and family. Of course before that we had also cases like this. But now it has reached a new level.

Failures and anger.
I have been flying for THY since 10 years by now. Trainer skipper on Long Haul fleet.
Let me tell you: almost all those who spread anger and bad comments about the airline are just people who failed and cannot reach the grapes!
iI am not a turkish national but I have been accepted and treated like one of them.
Rostering? Just like any othe major competitor.
Salary? Yes TL going down against euro but company increasing salary to accomodate the exchange rate re-gainn as much as they can.
Flyiers, there is no paradise on earth. If you claim that Emirates, Qatar, Korean are MUCH better you simply make me laugh with my bottom. Plenty of EX Emirates, Qatar and Korean coming nowadays. I personally trained many of them.
So be realistic: aviation is NOT anymore a piece of cake. Flying is hard everywhere. Turkish is offering a decent salary, an excellent commuting contract (C/C confirmed tickets) and a warm human contact to foreigners.
You are free to choose.

So, if they added some good commuting in the last few years, glad to hear(some examples please).

About the "decent" salary we might have to discuss. Really depends WHAT/WHERE the center of your life is and in which currency you need to pay your bills. Fact is that at least 2 loco in Europe are paying better(depending on the country of your base and local taxes of course, but let's not forget that includes retirement as well).

EDIT: (a few hours later): I THOUGHT SO. But all complainers failed the soooooo hard interview at THY. Yeah. And goats can fly(actually they can - in Doha , another fantastic place, crappier than THY - and yes, I was there and can tell - pay is higher, on the other hand costs are as well)

SELCALCHECK.... That was the most spot on post on this entire thread! I was with TK as a 777 DEC in 2015 for a few years. I truly enjoyed it... the flying, the rostering, the camaraderie with other expats and the 10 days off with a confirmed seat to pretty much anywhere. I had been at a very slave like airline operating in Dubai and coming to TK was such a breath of fresh air... and the people at the airline were the most lovely I've ever encountered... ever!

As Selcalcheck mentioned, there is no perfect airline out there, but this one... in my own opinion of course, was really enjoyable.

Having said that, I have to be honest that the reason I left was not because I didn't like flying there anymore, but rather the political situation. After a decade of flying overseas, it was simply time to come back to my home country to fly. But to this day, I still think of my time at Turkish very fondly and if I see a Turkish 777 jet taxiing out for takeoff, I try to get in a "iyi uuşlar" to the crew.

go to widebody

hi everyone

Quick question for a curious mind, is there any chance to go from A320/1 to A330 or even A350 (soon) if you join as a captain on the 320 fleet ?

Cheers

Going to WIDEBODY

Hi guys! Selcalcheck, I completely agree with all you said above. Can anybody say , how long does it take to expect in queue prior to going to widebody fleet? Is it DEC? And is it possible ever? Is the queue transparent? For B737 Captain to B777 for instance. I would really appreciate your answers! Thank you.

As a joining 737 capt , you basically have zero chance to be a skipper on LH....with expension it takes minimum 8 years...those who joined in 2012 are starting to upgrade.
Expension ends 2023...do your maths!

If you joined today, youd have roughly 1300 captains in front of you without counting all the LH rated who are joining.
For the fleet expension, info widely available on the web.

It's the bit between expansion and expulsion. The word core same as in "expendable".

see post #969. Nothing ever came from him. And I would have liked to hear that I was wrong with my feelings at the THY sim check and their instructors. But I guess I took the right decission NOT to join. Maybe a gig for some north americans(especially coming from the regionals), not europeans(bad exchange rate). What I do hear and see from THY crews on SH flying in the same airports we do agrees with my observations during the sim check(with this trainers no wonder).

Need a job, of course, join(needless to say). Leaving your (european) company for them, think well. No offence intended, but my honest observations for anyone interested.

tomuchwork.

I think the aviation world is getting sick of your constant whinging. You had a problem with Qatar, a problem with Turkey, and a problem with Korean (well you didn't into Korean, but still complain about them). Maybe the problem is you?

Please tell what wonderful job you have now, so we can come and join your perfect airline.

The company publishes the seniority list every year, and it includes the information how the list is being prepared.

Hi there,

Apologize if I am on the wrong thread, but I am looking at some info on pass travel with Turkish. I am looking at going to YYZ from IST on Turkish next week on standby passes. Ive heard that sometimes THY will deny standbys a seat even with space available in order to accommodate more cargo. Is this common for flights to YYZ or other North American cities?

Thanks in advance!
