This certainly won’t last. Per zoqfotpik on FlyerTalk, at the moment Turkish has some $1,200-1,400 business class fares from Atlanta to various destinations in Europe, including Barcelona, Belgrade, and Berlin. While you can use Google Flights to search these fares, though not all of them seem bookable directly via Turkish’s website, so you may want to use Expedia, Orbitz, etc., to book.
These fares have a Sunday night minimum stay, and a 50 day advance purchase requirement. You can travel through the end of the schedule, so they’re even valid for travel next summer. They book into the “J” fare class, so check out this page to see all the programs you can credit the miles to, and how many miles you’d earn.
Do keep in mind that some fares may have long layovers in Istanbul, and at the moment Americans can’t easily get visas to enter Turkey. However, transiting isn’t an issue, and there’s even an airside transit hotel at the airport, should you want to sleep somewhere for the night. Fortunately all of the above markets seem bookable with same day and short connections.
Turkish has a solid business class product with excellent food and a great lounge in Istanbul, so I’d highly recommend taking advantage of this fare if you’re considering going to Europe. But hurry, as I’m sure these fares won’t last (you always have 24 hours to cancel if booking through an online travel agency).
Anyone plan to take advantage of these great Turkish business class fares?
