    This should become the norm for them. They are always full out of BEG.

    So every wednesday the A333 will operate the route. JU has JFK on that day so BEG will have two widebodies that day. Widebody flights in May will be 1x TK, 3x JU and 2x SU.

      Plus TK Cargo A313 and that Belorussian B742 from China.

      Exactly the same initial thought on my end as well :)

      Or maybe they applied for Bodrum and Antalya so that the directorate has to give them the widebody permission. Also IST-BEG was always TK's playground so I doubt they will block them.

      "Ko ume njemu dve" ... I am not sure how come JU can't fill a 319 daily on a regular basis (often they are sending the ATR) while TK and even SU can fill in widebodies!?!

      JU does send widebodies to SVO just as charters. IST is more challenging because there is more competition, there is also Pegasus.
