Please don't call Tk or Expedia or anybody else. I'd like for this one to live longer than a few hours.

Here's TK's Comfort Class product: http://www.turkishairlines.com/en-INT/comfortclass/

By the way these are the penalties for this full-flex fare (seem to have lost in the previous rules post):

16.PENALTIES
CHANGES
ANY TIME
CHANGES PERMITTED FOR REISSUE/REVALIDATION.
CANCELLATIONS
BEFORE DEPARTURE
CANCELLATIONS PERMITTED FOR CANCEL/REFUND.
AFTER DEPARTURE
CANCELLATIONS PERMITTED FOR CANCEL/REFUND.
NOTE - TEXT BELOW NOT VALIDATED FOR AUTOPRICING.
FOR CANCELLATIONS AFTER DEPARTURE THE REFUND GIVEN
WILL BE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE FARE PAID AND
THE APPLICAPLE FARE FOR THE JOURNEY FLOWN.
APPLICABLE FARE FOR THE JOURNEY FLOWN IS THE ONE
THAT SET AT THE SAME RBD WITH THE ORIGINAL FARE
PAID.
IF NO FARE EXISTS FOR THE FLOWN JOURNEY
ON THE SAME RBD WITH THE ORGINALFARE
ANY FARE SET ON A HIGHER RBD WILL BE ACCEPTED.
Note that given one way fare exists, you are even eligible to refund part of the fare and surcharges/ taxes (which are huge) in case you only use 1/2 of the ticket.

Hee hee, from the TK FAQ:

The average comfort class fare on a route is midway between the average economy class fare and the average business class fare. Exceptionally attractive promotional level fares are currently available for comfort class.

That same link that shows the Comfort Class seat notes that the service is being rolled out gradually on 777 aircraft on certain routes. The HKG route is shown as being fully in place by September, 2011. Note that the fare is currently good through EOS, and allows for a long stay.

Sorry, Both A and U are Premium Economy or only U? Orbitz won't cough up U but will give me A...

You should book economy, not 'premium economy'. Note that stuplid TK site charges EUR 65 of serivce fees for a stopover. So it is better to make changes after departure (though some may say this is not safe to keep the fare from repricing in my view this is perfectly OK with IATA rules).

Orbitz did not price TK for me at all. Try XP. Don't book A if you can book U at USD 50 extra. A is sometimes not available while U is always unless fully booked.

MP still lists 'A' as First Class with 150% rdm... So it might be better for some.
