On TK's website just now, 11/22 CPH-IST-GRU-EZE return 11/30 $1550 in J (Business Promotion.) Doubt it's an error.

Base fare of Copenhagen-Buenos Aires R/T in Business class is 5.990 DKK (approx. 810 EUR) excl. taxes so I don't think it's an error.

Of course it's not. TK is clearly advertising it on their website. You just have the find days where it's available.

Are all of the planes used for the hop to IST simply European style business class or are some proper business class too ?

Afaik Turkish only has proper business class even on its smaller planes.

Btw, since someone here mentioned the long layovers in IST: Worth noting that Turkish offers free transit hotel if the transit time is unavoidable due to the flight times. http://liveandletsfly.boardingarea.c...transit-hotel/

I've just realised that it's much more convenient to search for those promotional fares on old version of TK's website.

SuperFlyBoy Aug 26, 17 4:32 am

As per the initial advert on the page, the only departure points for this sale for BOM is from BLL.

However, TK doesn't price this on the website and most routings go through CPH, probably on an SK metal flight, codeshared with TK.

Anyone able to price this out?

I am looking in September, also with google flights, but nothing seen...

Great tip. The direct URL is http://www.turkishairlines.com/en-se?returnoldversion btw.

Availability of these promotional fares is pretty low it seems. But I just found CPH-EZE rt Nov22-Dec 11 for 9642 DKK.

ITA Matrix shows phantom availability.
J is the lowest booking class and there is very little availability.
My travel agent only found something with GRU-EZE on waitlist, and 1.5 days in IST on the return. The stopover in IST increases the price, so it's not really worth it for me.

Anyone know a good other way to search for availability that ITA Matrix?
With ExpertFlyer, you have to search for each segment seperately, right?

It's a pretty lengthy "hop" from Copenhagen (3+ hours), or many other European cities (something over 4 hours on my MAN IST trecks).

Most premium cabins are 2x2 "armchair" style seats. Catering has slipped, but it's still at the top of the game.

The downside is that IST can be a bit of a zoo and quite daunting for new users: though on the other hand there are creature comforts in the splendid lounge.

If your connection time is over a certain length and satisfies some other conditions (it does so on both directions for CPH EZE), then you'll get a hotel. Free tours of Istanbul are another time-filing options.

Look for more information in the Flyertalk TK forum.

Turkish Airlines apply Married Segments so the availability you can see on ITA Matrix is not reliable.
You have to use a tool like ExpertFlyer and have to search like Copenhagen-Buenos Aires (via Istanbul), rather than searching Copenhagen-Istanbul and Istanbul-Buenos Aires separately.

If I search for CPH to EZE (via IST), will ExpertFlyer automatically find the segment through GRU?

Doesn't TK always fly to EZE via GRU?

ChocolateFactory Aug 26, 17 7:53 am

Yes, that's why I asked...

SuperFlyBoy Aug 26, 17 9:39 am

Even the old website states that it cannot book for BOM! :confused: :eek:
