SkyTeam: SFO/Others-IST RT business ~$1500

Plenty of dates in autumn, seeing SFO, DCA, IAH, EWR, ORD... to IST around $1,500

Thanksgiving dates also available

Not sure how the situation with the flights between Turkey and US will play out, but some nice fares...

Looks like some of these fares are already selling out. I switched SFO to IAH on the dates at OP's first link, and the least expensive fare was $3,800. I also moved the departure date up a day, and while there was a ~$1,500 fare on KL, it requires a 13-hour layover at AMS.

I noticed (and posted about) the cheap IST fares last night, and I still have no idea why they're so much lower than anywhere else in Europe - barring the unlikely possibility that it was a panic-induced fare drop resulting from the attempted coup (and Ataturk being shut down for two days).

No, it's not - this fare has been on sale several times already in the past 2 months, and even cheaper.

Fare looks dead now. Best "deal" is $2500+ rt. Still not bad, but not $1500.
