Hi,

thanks for info about such nice fares, particularly to EZE.
Do you know, if it's possible to make stopover in GRU in any direction?

flybranchen Aug 25, 17 5:10 am

Sorry, no idea about GRU stopover. I can see that it is a J class fare and the rules seem quite restrictive (ie. no cancellations), so I wouldn't be surprised if it is not allowed.

Mict Aug 25, 17 5:19 am

Unlimited free stopovers permitted on the pricing unit
2 in turkey
at any other point

TPJ Aug 25, 17 5:37 am

He he:

Luqa DKK 3,905
Tocumen DKK 9,106

TK Marketing :) Luqa is Malta, Tocumen is Panama City (they used airport names and not city names)

I'm sorry, but I don't know if I understand it correctly...
Does it mean that I could make a stop in GRU, let's say for 2 or 3 days and then go further to EZE?

Yes.

The change penalty isn't so bad. Less than $120.

Meneer Guggenheimer Aug 25, 17 10:14 am

To ZNZ is with a 737! from IST!

Has somebody managed to get dates for Buenos Aires at 1310€? Lowest I can find is close to 2000€.

Thanks,

Thanks,

I only managed to find some late november, for example 22/11 - 4/12.

It's a great fare, but seems there's no escaping a night layover both ways in Istanbul, which sort of kills it for me.

SkyTeem Aug 25, 17 11:49 am

Ticketed for New Years, but it was an interesting situation. Took some wrangling but it's ticketed. We'll see what happens next. $1550. (EUR 1304)

tropikey Aug 25, 17 12:25 pm

Earlier today I was able to find both destinations which I'm interested in (EZE, PTY) but now can't repeat it, although ITA Matrix still shows many dates.

FlyingFrZ Aug 25, 17 1:43 pm

Posted this in the other TK thread.

$1240 CPH-ORD rt

https://www.google.com/flights/?f=0&...0-21;sc=b;a=TK

I think thats a pretty smoking deal, especially for a decent business class product to the US

thierry Aug 25, 17 1:50 pm

It seems to have been an error fare since the lowest fares are twice as much, the fares shown on the link are probably OW only. In any case it's impossible to replicate

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.

Sisyphus1carus Aug 26, 17 2:48 am

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/

tropikey Aug 26, 17 4:04 am

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.

ChocolateFactory Aug 26, 17 5:31 am

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.

ChocolateFactory Aug 26, 17 6:08 am

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

EZEDoesIt Aug 26, 17 7:37 am

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:

Hi Flybranchen,

I am curious to know where you found the URL https://p.turkishairlines.com/en-dk/...tival-business. From TK airline website, I cannot find anywhere a link to this page and on google either.

Is it something you received through TK newsletter?

Many thanks

Thanks,

They give a complimentary hotel accommodation (both outbound and inbound) and for C pax these are good hotels.

imartin2k Aug 27, 17 3:07 pm

I've just booked CPH-BOG (rt) for 1600 USD end Oct till end Nov, no overnight in IST necessary. Booked through Orbitz to have 24h to decide whether I'll keep it or not.

I noticed that availability on the Turkish website (even the old one) is not really accurate. On some dates this fare might be available on OTAs but not on Turkish's own site.

vincewy Aug 27, 17 7:31 pm

Looks like all of the deals listed recently are J special out of Scandinavia, purchase by Sept 20th, complete first direction by March 2018 (forgot exact day).

I am also seeing HEL-PEK 1350 Eur, OSL-YYZ 1350 Eur

You will have to go to the Danish language part of the TK website. Scroll down a bit and you will find the Business Class campaign: https://p.turkishairlines.com/en-dk/

Can someone give a newbie a tip on how to book the free stopover in GRU when travelling CPH-EZE?

The price soars when I try to use the multi-city function using dates that initially only cost 1300 EUR.

Thanks

the problem is that while it is theoretically possible within the fare, TK limits the availability on the stand alone GRU-EZE-GRU segments as they have 5th freedom rights and sell them locally. Thus I did not find a single day with J class availability on that segment.....

I just did (although as open jaw).
CPH-BOG Oct 26
EZE-GRU Nov 17
GRU-IST Nov 20
IST-CPH Nov 21
Bookable on Orbitz for 1626 USD.

I guess there are more. It's just quite time consuming to find them (and aggregators such as Momondo or Kayak are not showing this fare).

Unless a full fleet overhaul took place since Dec 2016, it is not the case. Flew IST-PRG in "Lufthansa-style" C on a 320 last December.
