If you or someone you know is looking for European options this Spring or into mid-Summer out of IAH
/ southern US, Turkish Airlines is currently running a new service promotion to Istanbul for as little as $599 r/t (taxes included)!!! The fare seems to be good right now for April into mid-July time frames that can be seen right now. This is arguably a great option to get into Europe on the cheap if one is targeting W. / C. Europe (ie: Baltic / Adriatic countries, Greece, Italy, Germany, Ukraine, Russia etc.) or continuing West toward India.
