Thanks schley for the response!

Anone else spotted an error with the itinerary that is emailed after booking on the TK website.?

Flight TK 010 shows Dep LAX 17:55 and arrival in IST 17:10 same day. Surely this is next day arrival...???

In the fare rules it sais that: "UPGRADE TO ANY HIGHER FARE IS PERMITTED". But how does it work? Do I have to pay the upgrade from $802 to $5XXX or is there a fix amount I have to pay from U class to J class? That could be cheap

Mine shows next day arrival for this leg of the return trip. Strange, something I would look into further.

To book = to purchase a ticket on this fare, provided TK won't pull out this fare.

I booked HKG-IST (3-day stopover)-LAX-IST-HKG and a o/w HKG-IST-LAX, so adding a o/w from the US to Asia, I'll have two trips to Asia, in early July and late October. I usually use miles to book C to Asia, but I think this premium economy will be fine for me, although I do like the lie-flats in C.

Thanks a lot, OP.

It's simply a mistake in the confirmation mail. TK10 arrives next day at IST.

For those who're looking for some "real life" pictures of the Comfort Class, there's a nice trip-report in the German forum: http://www.vielfliegertreff.de/turki...tml#post394012

It's written in German of course

Booked 2 return tickets for me and wife in Nov for a week getaway in Socal.

Booked one more in end of March next year for a MR (with the 2.5 hour turnaround) just in case I dont have enough miles for *Gold. I am not a US citizen so still worried if I can make it in time. Will have 8 months to think about this MR and whether to cancel or not.

Booked one of these for late October which came to C$722 a/i. However, while booking process referenced COMFORT Class, my final confirmation says ECONOMY/U. Anyone know if there are showers in the LAX STAR lounge? Glad I have Global Entry to get through Customs at LAX quickly.

how did you get this to 722 canadian? Even with the exchange rate, the return 802 USD doens't translate to 722?

Oops, you're correct. Copied wrong set of numbers. It's C$784 from Euro574.
