Hi everyone... In January next year, I need to fly to MIA from IST for a week (a cruise vacation) but I have very specific dates as I can not get more vacations from work... I tried a lot of possibilities but I was wondering if you could find a good deal for my flight...

Route: IST-MIA on 24 January 2009
MIA-IST on 01 February 2009

Points to consider:

1. I have a Flying Blue card (AF) and another transatlantic flight would possibly bring me a free transatlantic flight  
2. I also have a TK Miles and Smiles membership so Star Alliance also works.
3. I have no cards whatsoever from OneWorld group.
4. I am traveling alone so ideally I would prefer an Airbus for long haul and ideally with PTVs  
4. Again, ideally, a ticket for around 1000 USD max.

I know I am pushing my chances  

Thanks a lot...

Just seen that by selecting different flights with Delta (on their website), the price comes down as low as THY 1200.69  Smile

Quoting TurkishWings (Thread starter):
4. I am traveling alone so ideally I would prefer an Airbus for long haul and ideally with PTVs

Why Airbus? Just wondering... not starting a war. PTV's DL has them on most of their 767's.

Quoting Hywel (Reply 2):
THY 1200.69

Which is $950 for easy conversion so you don't have to look it up.

Otherwise the only guarantee that I can find for Airbus with PTV's is for US $1317.64 from KLM's website it is this:

IST-AMS
KL 1610 Dep 05:25 Arr 08:05 Boeing 737-700 (winglets) 3hr 40min
AMS-DTW (One of the USA's nicest Airports)
NW 67 Dep 10:20 Arr 13:45 Airbus A330-300 8hr 55min
DTW-MIA
NW 993 Dep 21:10 Arr: 23:59 Airbus A319-100 2hr 49min

MIA-DTW
NW 994 Dep 13:15 Arr 16:23 Airbus A319-100 3hr 8min
DTW-AMS
NW 68 Dep 17:35 Arr 07:35 +1 day Airbus A330-300 8hr 0min
AMS-IST
KL 1613 Dep 09:10 Arr 13:35 737-800 (Winglets) 3hrs 25min

OR from KLM I also found this for $1,163.80 US
IST-AMS
KL 1610 Dep 05:25 Arr 08:05 Boeing 737-700 (winglets) 3hr 40min
AMS-DTW (One of the USA's nicest Airports)
NW 67 Dep 10:20 Arr 13:45 Airbus A330-300 8hr 55min
DTW-MIA
NW 993 Dep 21:10 Arr: 23:59 Airbus A319-100 2hr 49min

MIA-CDG
AF 95 Dep 17:40 Arr 08:00 +1 Boeing 747-400 8hr 20min
CDG-IST
AF 1590 Dep 10:10 Arr 14:30 Airbus A320-200 3hr 20min

Don't bother checking AF's website, it says that there are no flight available haha.

However if you use http://www.sidestep.com you can find good deals.

Cheapest is $961 US on British Airways (I know no cards in that area)
Cheapest Skyteam is Delta at $977 US thats what Hywel found, and this is from Delta.com, or 981 for extra miles flying IST-CDG-ATL-MIA, then MIA-JFK-IST
Cheapest Star Alliance is Swiss at $1210 US

Goodluck!
