Turkish is one of the world's largest airlines, but it has far more internal drama than most of its global competitors.
There are still negative perceptions about the security situation in Turkey and this mild rebound could prove to be short-lived as the summer travel season winds down.
Turkish Airlines is almost 50 percent owned by the national government, so it's no surprise the carrier has been affected by Turkey's recent attempted coup.
Turkish Airlines has had a terrible month, but the airline could bounce back faster than some passengers might expect.
Considering the United States was the only major country to bar flights from Turkey’s airlines, it makes sense that that ban could be lifted relatively quickly.
Over the last eight months Turkey's people and its tourism industry have been under sustained attacks. It's leadership needs help (and guidance) from the international community if it is to ease the crisis.
With Turkey facing a major decline in tourists, its top airline is increasingly carrying connecting passengers who never step foot in the country.

Fortunately, Turkish Air has transformed Istanbul into a hub rather than just a terminal. Today's stock drop is more about the domestic political situation more than it is travelers' concerns about flying the national carrier.
