Title: Turkish Miles and Smiles
Post by: MilesNpoints on September 19, 2014, 10:21:45 AM
Applying for a new account and cannot figure out their application process.  There's a separate "city" box and "district" box that must be filled out.  The pull-down men of cities doesn't list my city, nor many other cities in the USA.  And we don't have "Districts" in the USA.  Anyone figure out how to get your address inputting correctly?

Any way for a non Turkish citizen to get miles other than flying?

The only other way I know is to buy them - you can buy up to 50,000 per year. Usually not worth it, but I needed 1-2K for an award once and this option came in handy.

Has anyone had any experience booking an award ticket with turkish miles? Ive read you have to go to the ticketing office to be ticketed personally.

I don't think so: I see 94K r/t.

Maybe you're looking at the upgrade chart or something?

Even so that means I can fly JFK - TLV in united, swiss,... business for only 47k one way. Thats a really good value.

If you find availability that is a good value. They do charge YQ though, even on United.

Tried a dozen dates for ORD-OGG and EWR-HNL that UA.com showed X space. TK couldn't find a single one, though they did find some connections via SFO.

Anyone actually book a longhaul ticket to HI?
