Being a Brit, initially I didn't 'get' your Topic title - thought your really meant you were off to Turkey on a run! Doh!! http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/biggrin.gif
Anyway, since I'd already started this post I'd better carry on... In response to the recent terrorist activity in Turkey (another 2 horrendous, killer bombs yesterday (Thurs)) the British Foreign Office has issued a travel warning advising Britons not to travel to Turkey unless it's unavoidable. They don't seem to do that very often... I'm inclined to think that Americans are likely to be just as unpopular as us in that part of the world right now, so if anyone happens to be thinking of a run to Turkey on 'Turkey Day' or anytime soon, it might be wise to think again. Only my opinion of course.

Fare for that itinerary is now showing $189. Also, I've copied my posting from the AA forum here since it probably more relevant for mileage runners.
Looks like AA improved the terms of its Thanksgiving sale significantly. You can now depart on Nov 27 or 28, and return on Nov. 28, Dec. 3 or Dec. 4. The AA.com page referencing the sale appears to have been updated and indicates a ton of deals with fare basis "LTHXAA1N" on a wide variety of domestic routings. Typical example "DFW-MIA" outbound Nov. 27, return Dec. 3 at $189 roundtrip.
Additional material details:
Seasonality - "FOR OUTBOUND TRAVEL 27-28NOV03. SEASON IS BASED ON TRIP DATE RATHER THAN DATE OF ORIGIN. OR FOR INBOUND TRAVEL 27-28NOV03 OR 3-4DEC03. SEASON IS BASED ON TRIP DATE RATHER THAN DATE OF ORIGIN."
Eligibility - "TICKET MUST BE ISSUED BY 26NOV03. 27NOV03 IS THE FIRST DATE THAT TRAVEL MAY COMMENCE. RETURN TRAVEL AT THIS FARE MUST COMMENCE BY 4DEC03."

I think it was $189, but I paid the extra $$ so as to fly 777 in B/C seats both ways...that fare was not availble when I booked it on those flight, so since I am 6-7, I would have used 6 upgrade segments

Irrelevant to the topic, but curious, at 6'7" how do you fit in an Audi?

still not that great in terms of $/miles, is it? dallas to miami isn't really a boatload of miles and the fare isn't incredible, either.

A6 has lots of room, which is why I chose it over the 540i

I needed exactly 1593 miles to make AAPLAT. Didn't want to do anything up north that might have weather issues, and as I stated in my original post, I flew in the business class part section of a 777 without using the 6 upgrades it would have taken to upgrade to 1st, so the value of the miles, to me, were much more since I was so comfortable
