I fly to MNL a couple of times a year anyway, so this to me is one return home, then one roundtrip to USA, then one outbound to MNL. Just need to add a couple of cheap IST-TLV-IST in there.

Usually just a roundtrip to USA (using Lifemiles) costs me around $2400. So this is a heck of a deal, especially when you get back some $350 in earned miles.

Could you post an example, please? I'm having trouble recreating this.

I believe $1396 does not include any stopover at IST. $1435 comes with stopovers at IST both ways, the ~$40 or so difference is only the additional taxes incurred due to the 2 stopovers, so no change of fare...

The dates I booked are no longer available, however this is how I found it.

I found MNL-IST to be not available on a couple of Fri. So avoid Fri.

Then the easiest was to search for IAH/MIA as the destination. Find the dates that are available at this fare.

Switch the return from IAH/MIA to SFO/LAX. Even if Google flight does not show the price, just go to TK website, and play around with the return segment dates.

I found the SFO route but hesitated when I saw the positioning flight to MNL from AMS was too pricey. And now it's really dry - can't find anything under 1800 USD. It's a really long trip but such a cool route.

Credit to TK Miles and Smiles and you'll get a ton of miles, then if you have a Citi TYP card then just transfer over a relatively small amount of miles and you'll have enough for a lot of longer business class (saver of course) award flights.

Did you see the fare with CZ in business for 1250 EUR? 787-9 & A350 very comfy seats.

Thank you, I did. But on the dates I needed (which was to make the trip 1 week or under, they were much pricier.

I can't find the TK fare anyway so all the wondering and thinking cost me the trip.

The fare is still there, I recommend using google flights for fast availability search.

I tried that but it reprices when you go to the TK website. Google just didn't update their inventory.

I just tried AirCanada881's link and went from there to the payment page on the TK site, and the total remains as seen on GF. Good luck!

Sadly it does look like the price went up for me too I guess availability is drying up
