A THY Turkish Airlines Airbus A330-300, registration TC-JNI performing flight TK-30 (scheduled dep Aug 6th, actual dep Aug 7th) from Newark,NJ (USA) to Istanbul (Turkey), was cleared for takeoff from runway 22R at intersection with taxiway W but crossed runway 22R, lined up taxiway P (parallel to and east of runway 22R) and commenced takeoff. Tower cancelled the takeoff clearance advising the crew they were on taxiway P. The crew rejected takeoff at about 90 knots over ground, slowed to taxi speed about 1400 meters/4600 feet down the taxiway, turned right onto taxiway E, crossed runway 22R and joined taxiway B. The aircraft subsequently was instructed to taxi to the holding point runway 11 via taxiway W (parallel to runway 29), where the aircraft held for about 45 minutes to have the brakes cool down. The aircraft was subsequently instructed to enter runway 11 at the threshold, taxi along runway 11 to the intersection with runway 22R and line up runway 22R. The aircraft finally departed from runway 22R one hour after the rejected takeoff from taxiway P. The aircraft landed safely in Istanbul with about 100 minutes delay about 9:20 hours after the takeoff from runway 22R.

A passenger reported they were accelerating on a taxiway between runway 22R and 22L just after midnight when the crew rejected takeoff. The captain subsequently announced they had rejected takeoff for a mechanical problem. The aircraft subsequently taxied northbound, emergency services attended. The aircraft stopped for about 45 minutes to let the brakes cool down, emergency services remained in stand by all the time, then the aircraft taxied to runway 22R and departed without further event.
