Turkish Airlines Deploys Boeing 787-9 On New York Route


From the 10th of August in 2020, Turkish Airlines plans to adjust its popular Istanbul International to New York JFK route. Specifically, the previously A330-300 operated TK003/004 service will now be operated by the very much lauded Turkish Airlines Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.

What is the difference between the 777-300ER and the 787-9?

At first, there might not seem that much of a difference in service between the two aircraft.

For economy, both aircraft have the same configuration (3-3-3) and the same pitch. The screens on the 787 are slightly bigger than the 777-300ER, and passengers might enjoy the bigger overhead bins, windows and LED mood lighting onboard. These are simply benefits of a newer aircraft.
