At the end of May, I will visit London for a long weekend. Flights and hotels booked already. My schedule is as follows:
IST-LHR May 22 TK 1979 08:00 - 10:05 AM
LHR-IST May 25 TK 1980 11:25 AM - 17:20 PM
This is all perfect but I am looking to regain my Elite status with TK in the next year or two. While looking at random flights, I realized there are a lot of cheap flights to USA ex-London in late May. So I was thinking I could do a mileage run only to make miles towards my new goal
I am thinking of flying to US on May 23 Saturday and returning on May 24 Sunday. Could you help me with finding the best deals on Star Alliance carriers to USA ? Please keep in mind I am looking at gaining the most miles possible.
P.S: I could also look at NRT-ICN-SIN-HKG and so on as long as the price is right.
P.S 2: I am not a big sleeper on planes so IFE is crucial
P.S 3: Price would possible by less than 600-700 USD.
P.S 4: Hotel is free of charge so no problems at changing my itinerary in London. I could also possibly extend my stay in London for another day with a penalty of EUR 40.
I have a couple of things in mind (such as LAX or SFO on UA) but I would like to hear your suggestions too.
Thank you all in advance
