Scoot adds Berlin, El Al adds San Francisco, Iberia 25% off wards, your own private plane exit, Turkish Airlines resurgin

Posted on January 7, 2018 by in Travel Deals, Turkish Airlines Review

Scoot is coming to Berlin (from Singapore) in 2018 – a great win after the airport lost lost of flights with the Air Berlin insolvency

Iberia still has the 25% award sale running – from the East Coast to Europe this can be a good deal (and reasonable fuel surcharges)

El Al is adding San Francisco to the list of destinations with their new 787 – redemptions are expensive though using their own program

– this Ryanair passenger simply opened up the emergency exit while the plane was taxiing and tried to made a run for it

I waited a full one hour yesterday waiting at Oakland airport after a 12 hour LEVEL flight and I was considering the same 🙂

– Turkish Airline is resurging and expects a massive 74 million passengers in 2018

By the end of 2018, Turkish Airlines expects a passenger load factor of 79%-80%; ASKs are predicted to rise 5%-6% to 183 billion compared to 2017.

Capacity is expected to see year-over-year (YOY) increases of 10% in Turkey, 9% in the Middle East, 6% in Europe, 6% in the Far East, 4% in the Americas and 3% in Africa.
