hmm.. something interesting i just found for crediting miles. if you're able to confirm A class on these tickets, you could potentially get double RDM if crediting Agean.


According to Agean's website, Turkish "A" class is considered First Class which is 200% Accrual. + what's even better is that you only need 20K to get *Gold!!!

There's more...

"Once you have collected 16,000 miles within one year from the date which you qualified to the Blue status, you will receive the Gold Card."

So, if i interpret this correctly then you essentially need to fly 1 way from HKG-LAX to hit * Gold because HKG-IST-LAX nets nearly 12,000 miles * 2 for the bonus. Am I right? Could one really get *Gold for $400?

A sort of tangential question- Are people adding the $33 trip insurance offered by Expedia for this booking?

23.6k miles, Premium Economy (U fare), 150% M&M, 100% MP. Bookable on Expedia (ex: jun 22-30, restrict search to Turkish and Premium Economy). For some extra (~$950 ai) you can get UA B fare for LAX-IST. Book before/on May 18.

Credit goes to Away from YYZ.
to get U/A B fare do u have to do a multi city booking to get this? what site did u use. tried f.bomb but it routed me back to usa to get to hkg. did the b fare work both ways lax-ist and ist=lax? havnt tried expedia yet or turkish air

Just making sure, are changes and refunds both free if I book through TK's website? I'm seeing O/W HKG-LAX in A class for 283.86 Euro.

Thanks Keter for the reminder! I was more focus on how to get A2RTHK fare for HKG-YYZ-HKG at the time and didn't pay much attention of HKG-LAX-HKG when i first saw it.

Well, end up I got myself a HKG-LAX-HKG as well, now I am hoping to find a cheap LAX-YYZ-LAX later on. (The price is still not as good as HKG-YYZ-HKG on A2RTHK) But this one is good for extra miles...

Keep going until the last confirmation page and you'll see the price in Euros.

If I can book it in A class and I can get extra 50% eqm bonus with onepass, that's almost as good as a RT in U class, which only earns 100% EQM. Less flying but only 50% less EQM. I think I might consider doing a one-way.

I can't seem to find the non-stop TK flight from IST-LAX if I want a stopover in IST (this is for O/W). TK site won't show that flight and XP is displaying astronomical prices. Am I doing something wrong?
