    I already booked a TK flight and i'm flying next week, AMS to KUL via Ataturk booked in Q class. I wonder if I qualify for this.., and how many extra miles I will get and/if it only applies to flights to and from Istanbul Yeni airport.

Only the new flights to/from ISL.

Makes sense... apart from #avgeeks who would want to fly that route when Ataturk options still exist...

Doesn't this depend on perspective? Useless for you maybe. Certainly for me too but they need to fill those "extra" flights so this just might help.

@kerjaansei AFAIK, yes, you do! Steal: well, it depends on your perspective and also, if you have loads of flight to/from ISL to the above places!

So IST(ISL should be similar)-GYD is 2,225 miles x 5 = 11k~ round trip in economy. How is this going to play out in business class AND with Elite status??

TK has had some stonkingly good promos, though not always implemented smoothly

This one will work well for some, though clearly not for you.

Nope not usless.
Antalya and Ankara as example are flown once a day. A return flight in business class would normally earn you 2000 status points, but with this promotion you will earn a total of 10000 status points for every return flight.

In order to get Elite Status at Turkish Airlines Miles&Smiles program, equivalent to Star Alliance Gold, you need to earn 40000 points.

So 4 inner Turkey business class flights will already bring you the Star Alliance Gold status with this promotion. The prices on these routes can go as low as 79, but realistically you will pay around 140. Best way to find prices is via Google Flights.

Presumably it's 1 or 2 aircraft at ISL. Has anybody looked into the combination of routes that would have you flying all day and picking up at least 4, if not 6, segments? Ankara is midday IIRC.

cmiimw but i dont think it's possible. ankara and antalya are midday and connecting is only an hour i think. adb-isl morning, isl-adb afternoon.

Yeah, the Antalya flight flies into ISL and back out to Antalya. Ankara starts at ISL and returns there. Both around midday. Different aircraft therefore.
