Re: Turkish Orders 40 787 Dreamliners

I would have been very surprised if they would not ordered the 787, I would also be surprised if there won't be an A350 order down the road in a couple of years. It was one of the last large airlines that didn't have any orders for the next gen wide-bodies. Hopefully they will firm it up soon, then...

They recently ordered 4 more, in total 18.
