TK "A" Fare Sale (Premium Economy) NYC/LAX - Europe/Asia/Middle East/Africa

This isn't a complete list. Most routes are available in regular economy for several hundred $ less. The A fares are a nice way to finish off any 2011 EQM in style! TK has a new lounge in IST too.

TK "A" fares earn bonus EQM/RDM when credited to certain programs (again, not a complete list):

CO: 150% EQM, 125% RDM
UA: 100% EQM, 150% RDM
US: 125%
AC: 110%
BD: 100%
A3: 100%
TK: 125%

Since CPM varies by mileage program I will list CPM on base miles only, followed by crediting to CO. OnePass will cease to exist at the end of this year so assume that UA accrual rules will apply for travel after 12/31/11.

Remember this is for premium economy, not regular economy. I won't make a separate thread for the economy deals (4-6 CPM). All prices are all-in and include base fare, YR, and taxes for a roundtrip itinerary. Most fares include one free stopover in IST with the opportunity to purchase one additional stopover for $50.

Destinations with a * may include some segments on equipment without premium economy. In these cases that segment will book into full Y, which credits at the following rates:

CO: 150% EQM, 100% RDM
UA: 100% EQM, 100% RDM
US: 100%
AC: 100%
BD: 100%
A3: 100%
TK: 100%

Fantastic

Thanks!

Silly question. Must I buy a RT? or can I do for example ORD - IST - HKG but just the one-way?

UA/CO may change the earning at any time, since A used to be fare code first discount first class, but it is now premium economy.

there is some risk on expecting the bonus EQM.

Too bad I have re-qualified this year already (and I have a non-MR ticket to HKG next month).

But it seems like the deal go beyond end of 2011. So it is not bad if you want a early start.

Exclamation Good deals ex-PRG as well - AWX6MRT

Just checked and played with ITA ex-PRG (I am M&M), got similar values:

PRG-IST-PEK in YAAY (Y earns 750 miles on shorthaul, A earns 150% on longhaul) for 1074 USD
2 * (750+(4405*1,5)) = 14715 Status miles with M&M
Roughly 7.2 CPM EQM and RDM varies based on status.


PRG-IST-HKG for 1220 USD
WAW-IST-PEK for 1142 USD

Maybe it hasn't been long enough since I woke up but Why a Canadian Fare Sale? Can I get a better deal for being in Canada?

As much as these are out of my usual MR range, I need a good chunk of miles and I've heard a lot of good things about TK's PE. I think I may just take the plunge. It'll balance out the absurd deals I got earlier this year.

Thanks for posting all of this! Now, to find myself a ticket to LAX!
