  1. hi
    First of all good job! I found really useful information from your post. Even though I have flown many times with Turkish Airlines I never paid attention to the aircraft itself, I was more concerned about the services they were providing. :D. But as I see from your post, there is so many of them. Also I see that every of them is either Airbus or Boeing aircraft. I was wondering if they have aircraft from other manufacturer? So I did a little research on my own.
    The result was yes. In the past Turkish Airlines had 14 aircrafts from British Aerospace and 20 from McDonnell-Douglas. But none of them are flying today. From here we can see how powerful Airbus and Boeing are. They ousted every other competitors.
    Today more and more people choosing Turkish Airline, because of its good quality. Therefore the demand of bigger aircraft is increasing. I think in the near future they will have even bigger airplanes such as A380, or new big models.
    In the end good job!

  2. Hello, İçim. Your topic was quite interesting but there is not much topic to talk. Simply, aircrafts are part of our life. Almost 50 percent of the people have used the aircrafts. According this improvment firms must to produce specific aircrafts as u have mentioned. Producing aircrafts depends on the different demand such as economy,range,comfort,size,cost ,safety etc.Because of these there are lots of model that we can not know exactly.But nowadays safety and economy are most important things for demand.While demand is increasing firms are producing ecomomic,safe and huge models such as A380, B747 . I hope all of us will keep in touch with this sector.Thanks for your blog :)
