To avoid confusion which was around during similar offer in autumn 2016, this promotion is only valid for invited members, i.e. those who received the related email from TK.

Nice offer, though!

As one of the lucky recipients of this email, I wonder if the 2x/4x miles count only toward status, or if they are redeemable as well.

I doubt that the miles would be redeemable, although it would be great if they are.

Also, can someone clarify the conditions associated with this offer? Do flights have to be reserved within the offer period (8th March to 15th June) for them to be eligible or does this offer apply to previously reserved flights but flown between 8th Mar to 15th June?

Thanks.

Hey,

i have just talked to Turkish. Nobody knows really about this promotion there.
And i even called the istanbul office.

As i don't know if it has to be booked from now til 8th March, or from 8th March?
And if the miles are only for the status membership.

I have sent an email thru thy.com and to Facebook page.

Will let u know

Uff that would be great. I just need that! However I did not receive any e-mail from them, and the explanation on the page is odd.

Let's see...

Good luck in making sense of the wording of those rules not that my English language proficiency is any better, but one would expect a company like TK to make a more professional effort...

I'd honestly be a lot happier if I could earn 4x Bonus miles instead of status miles, but this offer would be great for those that don't travel much and want to achieve/retain status.

For a data point -
1 return flight in J from MNL to JFK gives you Elite+ status already. Seems a bit too good to be true..

Yes, you are right. But not many people fly such half way around the world...
Maybe TK wants to retain old FF and find new ones, this is a good way, at least they are paying and flying TK...

Also I don't understand the following:
Flights issued after flight is not valid. Miles credited after flight is not subject to this promotion.

TK's english is bad, bad...
Probably they wanted to say: Miles credited after the flight (if the card is not stated before) are not valid.

Turkish Airlines is so messy, I wonder if they have a system where they can check who has been contacted directly.

New message from THY´s Facebook, they did send a request to MilesandSmiles and they should contact me very soon, so will see.

So do i understand it correctly?

Flight - NYC - IST one way gives normal 8.000miles. Return is 16.000.
16.000 x 4 = 64.000 miles
so just 16.000miles short to become Elite plus member?

is this calculating right?

No, you are correct that all C+, E and E+ passengers earn 8000 status miles (160%) flying J (8,750 in fare bucket C & D at 175%) however I am assuming that when they say "4 times," they are saying 4 times the base status miles at 100%.

Just my assumption though.
