Every airline I have worked for has off loaded standbys to carry more cargo... I don’t think it’s just TK that does it.

Hi guys:
Does anybody knows what’s happening with Turkish Airlines recently??. I had an interview in the beginning of October and suddenly they told me that they’ve canceled all the hirings until further notice. Is it because of the MAX issues? Or is something related to the company?. If anyone knows something about it, will be appreciated.

Dear Valued Candidates,

First of all thank you for your expression of interest to be part of the Turkish Airlines family.

We would like to inform you that we have come to a stage where we have fulfilled our recruitment requirements therefore we will be holding off our screenings until further notice. Whilst we have requested some documents from your end as well as provided you with potential screening dates, it is with regret that at this point in time we will not be moving forward.

The successful recruitment drive that Turkish Airlines has been conducting in the last few years has resulted in a vast number of highly qualified and professional pilots become a part of the Turkish Airlines family. We are always on the lookout for experienced and professional candidates and would like to keep your application on file.

Turkish Airlines will be getting in contact with you if and when our recruitment drive commences to provide you with further information.

We thank you for your understanding and wishing you a pleasant day.

Please note that this is an automatic generated email and will not be replied to.

March salary was paid in full terms (inc. 3 months bonus, overtime, etc), for April an amount of 700-750€ will be paid from government funds for all pilots (expat, local, capt., fo). If you had duty in April, company pays some amount per day but quite negligable,

The best answer to all the critics out there. I've got many senior Capts and FOs flying for THY and the only concern (to a small extent, if at all) is the plummeting Lira which is obviously being compensated by the company in the best of its ability. Plus they didn't let any of the pilots go (as far as I've heard).

Check your info. There is a new update regarding your last sentence. TK will get rid of all expats very soon. Sad for our colleagues, but very happy that on daily basis, turkey is becoming less Europe and more what they really are by heart.

Does anyone know why Turkish airline was interviewing flight crew for A350 from 2018 ? They have not received A350 yet.

Love it ! Finally a sense of humour surfaces amongst the despair.
Seriously for a moment, I have heard only good things about the flying , the crews incl cc and general cameraderie in LH fleets .
The main issue was the depreciating currency and fractious political situation.

Sounds like a Nationalistic comment meaning only local pilots soon. My 10 liras worth.

Is the rumour true regarding removal of hotel accomodation due to COVID and flying 28h duty?

Is this note also for locals or expats only?

Since it states “pass tickets back to your country”, I assume they are only getting rid of expats
