ANKARA, March 6 (Reuters) - Turkish Airlines is still in talks with both Airbus and Boeing over plans to order narrow-body planes and has not yet made a final decision on the number of aircraft it will buy, Chairman Hamdi Topcu told Reuters.

The world's fastest-growing major carrier plans to expand its fleet of smaller planes this year after buying billions of dollars worth of larger models in 2012, making it a key client for global plane makers.
