I am not sure how this happened, but we were just able to book (over the phone) 4 round trip tickets from Charlotte to Istanbul 6/25 - 7/5 for 50K each. I was sure the tickets would be 100K each, but we couldn't use the us air website to book this itinerary. Does anybody know if this is actually correct, a special deal (perhaps a mileage saver?) or what? Is there another place online to book these tickets using award miles? You can't book Istanbul on the us air website as an award ticket although you can as a regular ticket, which is strange.
