Hi
for Manila to Houston via Istanbul the Turkish website only states 6384 status miles.
Cannot find the booking class anywhere on their website but it doesn't seem to be J (anymore).

Don't want to book for 6384 miles only.
Found it... it's only visible on the flight selection screen, not on the second screen of the booking process, and it's still J.

Regards
Fabian

The fare was valid until 30th November so no surprise there

This fare is gone.

I feel the best airline to get miles on this ticket is turkish miles.

TAP gives 200% but it has crappy awards.

Don't know if anyone is still following this but I've been unable to book the stopover hotel - Philippines not on the allowed list of departure points

Corona virus

My departure from Mnl is march 23rd and currently thinking about delaying the trip due to Covid19 risk. Does anyone know what the original rule was in terms of valid travel date? Was it 1 year from purchase date or from departure date? I know changed fee is $200. Thank you

Ticket validity is a year from purchase, not departure, as I understand it. Either way, that's not necessarily the same as valid travel dates (travel may be limited to specific timeframes within a ticket validity). More importantly: if you change the first leg, it's not just the $200 fee; the whole ticket will be repriced at current fares. So it's important to fly the first leg as originally booked. Luckily, that was two days ago for me. Hopefully TK will declare a special waiver if the situation continues. If they do, you would be able to change travel dates with no fee and no recalculation of fare.

No cancellations allowed either.

I'm not traveling til April, but it's beginning to look dicey. Given the Philippines are blocking entry to people who have transited multiple ports - it's getting harder to position to start these flights.

I've decided not to book any non-refundable accomodation for this one just yet!

Looooong wait for a phone agent. Finally got through and easily got our IST-MIA-IST legs moved from April to June with no charge, per the Corona exception. We already flew MNL-IST. They also allowed us to move the October leg IST-MNL to another day in that month.

Thanks for updating. I haven't started the trip yet so am looking at a hefty fee to change dates.

You should call TK and ask if they would let you change with no charge. You have nothing to lose by asking. If their exception rules are as confusing to agents as they are to me, you might have a good chance.

Went to Chicago TK office yesterday. Theyre offering one time change free of charge no reprice. Didnt have to pay anything to change it to later in the year.

On a side note, the deal is back. Little more expensive for $1850. Available to most of major airports in US as well as Canada.

Ive called TK twice and I have no idea what to do first agent said i can rebook whole trip before may 31 for free, I did not at the time as I wanted to change my re-positioning flights first

second time calling after three agents I was told the may31st for free thing is wrong and any rebookings the change fee only is waived and I still have to pay the fare difference, which is astronomical like over 2000-3500USD

I can rebook the same trip now for 400 USD more than it was on this sale.

They also say no refunds

Any suggestions??
