Need 1000 miles on TK

Hi everyone,

I need a bit more than 1,000 miles on TK Miles&Smiles within the next 1.5 months in order to extend my status in the first year. Because it's the first year, buying status miles unfortunately is not an option. Who knows a cheap option to get those miles on a weekend in Europe in April (preferably departing ZRH)?

Things I've already tried:
  • Weekend flights with SAS / SAS Plus Saver are too expensive (nothing under $300) in April
  • LH doesn't yield any miles in K and L, also only 25% in T
  • TK too expensive, again nothing under $300
  • the only option I have found: same day returns with LX in Q, V, W or S (600 miles each way) within Europe. <$300 possible.
Would anyone have a cheaper / more efficient option? Thanks!

144 to WAW

Then upgrade for CHF 123 during booking. Not sure if this works

Can't think of anything. As you probably know, you only earn 25% at best on the cheapest economy fares.

Oddly enough, you'd probably be better off needing more miles since you'd be more inclined to pay for a J to or via IST.
