KLM having crazy sale to IST from anywhere in Canada basically,
YVR,YYC,YUL,YYZ from $700, YEG from $750...

Great deal to IST, availability from Oct 2012 until May 2013.... Connection in Amsterdam of course

EDIT:looks like it books into the lowest lowest fares so it earns 25%... Please move to good deals thread[/QUOTE]

Books into L or N so earns 100% Skypesos.

Maybe, but don't be surprised if its a T fare, nixing any chances of using it for a MR!

I can't get this to show up on ITA, but it works on klm.com. You can also book a stopover in AMS. I have family members that are probably going to take advantage of this - thanks OP!

Any way to make Matrix pull this up?

I was able to pull up a variety of fares YVR-AMS-IST for between $700 and $750 CAD on klm.com (~5cpm), and I can furthermore confirm that matrix won't pull these fares up.

Which is unfortunate, because KLM's search tool is pretty bad. Anyone know of another flexible search tool like matrix that can price these fares?

Edit: Forgot to say, thanks OP, this is a solid fare.

This was part of a Facebook contest that KLM Canada had where people could vote for what destination they wanted to go on sale for $750 roundtrip after taxes.

The nominees were Istanbul, Amsterdam, Dublin, and a couple of other cities. It's going to be on sale until June 14 at midnight.

You can read about it on YVRdeals.com, YYCdeals.com, YYZdeals.com, etc. That was the guy who got everyone in Canada to vote for Istanbul.

It looks to be valid from quite a few Canadian cities, even smaller ones like Kelowna and Saskatoon.

Quick question,
Do you earn miles for the WS portion of the flight? for EX from YEG-YUL flown on WS even though WS is not on skyteam?
