World Record by Turkish Airlines
Basketball players and fliers by Turkish Airlines must be well aware of the world’s fastest and highest basketball game being played in the sky, which is a world record. It was Turkish Airlines that sponsored this National Men’s Basketball, supporting the team on a commercial film made by Rabarba Digital Agency and directed by Emre Sahin. Kayseri was the city where the basketball game was played at an altitude of five thousand meters with the fastest dunks being shot with the speed of 250 km. The weight of the basketballs was fixed at seven kilos and 84 basketballs were used in total. A camera each, all imported, was placed on the parachuters’ helmets for the recording. The last scene of shooting was done in Istanbul with the participation of prominent National Basketball Team players. It is only Turkish Airlines that has developed such an exclusive idea of such a spectacular commercial film on air. If you are planning to go to Turkey, book your flight by Turkish Airlines and enjoy the trip; the airline also covers a number of international destinations.
Flying by Virgin Atlantic and Air China, especially by availing special offers, can prove very cost effective for both frequent and non-frequent fliers. Both the airlines cover all major worldwide destinations. But if you prefer flying to their base countries; for example China for Air China and UK for Virgin Atlantic, the airfares can prove cheaper than the normal air tickets. Both Air China airfares and Virgin Atlantic airfares have been blueprinted to suit the pocket preferences of all classes of travelers.
Besides availing the low Air China airfares, you can experience self baggage check-in, especially if you are flying from Beijing to other domestic cities. The process involves using CUSS, the self check-in device, to check in onto a flight. You can enter up to three pieces of baggage; soon you will get the boarding pass and the baggage tags. The tags need to be attached to your baggage and handed over to the baggage counter. Long queue at counters to check in your baggage is thus spared.
