We have booked via Turkish Airlines for a flight in September, from Stansted to Ercan, only to find out that the flights have been cancelled, they as yet have not let us know, we have found this out from a third party, the flights they are now offering are completely different times, and from what we can understand we would have to fly to two different airports in Turkey before reaching Ercan. This is the second time this company have changed our flights, the first time was in December. Has anyone else had problems with this airline, and if so what happened, and do you think we could get a refund. We booked direct on the internet.

Unfortunately this airline is renowned for cancelling/altering their scheduled flights if they have not reached the capacity that would make the flight financially viable. Our travel agent will only use them as a last resort.

Jayne, we had similar problems for our flights in April and July. They wanted us to fly from Stansted and return to Heathrow or have an overnight changeover in Istanbul



I phoned up and we are now flying from Heathrow for the two flights



Call them, they were fair with me

My dad also booked flights via Turkish Airlines last December, flying from LHR to IST, after paying his fare and a week before his departure he received a phone call from TA informing him that they have moved him on to a AnadoluJet flight from a different airport (STN) at a different time and provided him with a new booking reference.



I've always found that shouting works best with Turkish companies, so I took his details and called TA's London office, the machine like woman at the other end told me that it was for operational reasons but was unable to give me an exact reason for the change of flight times and departing airport. After insisting for almost 20 minutes and a few insults later, she finally agreed to re-book my dad back on his original flight! What annoyed me the most was the fact that TA expect the customer to be inconvenienced more than themselves, Just remember at the end of any decision they make is an idiot, you just don't need to be a bigger to accept it!

I agree Lesshaw42. Some people just like doing things the long way round, because it's definitely not cheaper! Just been checking Pegasus flights for 22 July-07 August and they're quoting prices like 696 each (doesn't include on board meal / drink and only 20Kg luggage)!!! I thought the extra time was for stopping over in Turkey but at these prices it looks like they fly via Los Angeles! Just booked LHR to LCA with BA for 330, good times, with meals and 23Kgs.

Had a booking for the may half term for Anadolujet from Stansted that had already had two lots of schedule changes. Just made a casual check last week of the booking to notice that it's been changed again to go Stansted-Ankara-Istanbul-Ercan. What a joke! Emailed for a full refund which has been done, but had no email confirming so.



I've sung the praises of Turkish in the past, but this is an absolute farce. Seems that they are driven by announcing how many destinations they fly to, and change desitnations at a whim to achieve this, irrespective of the consequences to booked travellers. "Hey, we fly from London to Ankara now!" Whoopee.

Warning - if you have a booking with Anodolu Jet, I suggest you check you spam box. I have just found an email from them saying my flights had changed in with the spam!



Also when I finally got hold of THY they were intending to send me on a two day trip via both Ankara and Istanbul! With persistence I am now booked on 'real THY' civilised flights from and to Heathrow. I have always been very happy with THY but have never tried flying with their Anodolu outfit before and will not now be doing so in the future.

Msg 12

Anyone who thinks Stansted is London needs to go to Specsavers and the PR people who came up with 'Stansted-London' need to be shot!

It happens all over the world.... book a flight to New York and you'll probably fly in to Newark in New Jersey (not even in the same State), it goes for all the others too.. London Luton (Bedfordshire) London Gatwick (West Sussex) etc etc

Your flight with TA will still take you to Ercan. They will inform you of the change in schedule, perhaps a change in the time also and give you alternative flights on the same day. Which has just happened to us, (Not the first time.)



So we still fly the same day nearly the same time from the same airport (Stanstead) but we now change in Ankara insead of Istanbul, so no problem as the transit times are nearly the same. They do sort things out as it has happened 5 times over the last 2 years. Which has not been a problem.



Plenty of leg room and the food OK. Luggage hasn't been a problem it arrives with us at Ercan.



Once you contact TA and make the new arrangements, you just pick up your new tickets at the TA office at Stanstead. 2Hrs before your fight.
