Turkish Airlines To USA

Turkish Airlines To USA

    It is not only irresponsible but shameful that your forums posts have not revised or at least put an “invalid” about Turkish Airlines flights to USA. Googling Turkish Airlines to USA brings up a blog by Tiffany with most of it being invalid after July 19th. I read the blog and was concerned about my travel plans for August 7th, only to realize that the information is not valid anymore.

    Please fix the blog so that people like me do not get concerned about old information.

    Cheers!

    Hi [USER=2166]@harrydada[/USER], and welcome!

    In general, we don’t revise old news articles (though do post updates at the top of posts when it makes sense). We can’t control what Google finds, but I think we’ve done a pretty thorough job of covering this situation.

    The most recent articles are below, if that helps, and we’d be happy to answer questions if you have specific concerns:

    Tiffany,
    Thanks for your reply. Both the links indicate that the ban has been lifted. No offense but the information was also available on the other websites. Here is what my issue was:
    Your update indicated that “Since the time of this writing, [URL=’https://twitter.com/FAANews/status/755108018338103296′]the FAA has now removed the ban on flights from Turkey[/URL], and flights will resume operating as scheduled in the coming days. [B]The below information is still applicable, though travel waivers will likely not be extended beyond the current date range[/B].”

    Note that the second sentence (bold) of the update creates an issue – that the information is still valid and waiver terms will not be extended – implies that the FOLLOWING INFORMATION is applicable.

    For a layman, who does not know what a waiver is, it is confusing. All a person needs to know is that the flights resumed and the conditions of the article “do not apply (hope I am right)”. So a reader does not have to read the entire article.

    Anyways, good job for educating general public!

    Cheers![I][/I]

    Point taken, but here’s the thing — the information is still applicable because it gives out the options.

    Like, if there’s a waiver, you get X. If there’s not a waiver, you get Y. If your flight was booked by another airline, call A versus B, etc.
