you have to arrange your own transfer & you will need a visa, depending which passport you have.
I presume that with the New Istanbul Airport that transfer takes longer.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

TK has saver space that sometimes shows only on their own website as well as Asian partners (such as ANA, SQ, etc.) that doesn't show up on European and American partners.

Just FYI, they often have 4-6 Business class seats to TLV out of ORD, BOS and Atlanta. I just booked J seats for Sukkot for my family. I know most of you are in NYC but lots of others arenít so make sure to check those cities. Only 104k RT PP from ANA in J  and yes some fees but so few points and enough seats for my whole family over Sukkot that it was a no-brainer for me. :)

I booked myself on TK for next week, hoping to be able to review the new airport, just to discover that the move was pushed off to March after I ticketed.  :(

Then I saw https://www.businesstraveller.com/business-travel/2019/01/23/turkish-confirms-new-long-haul-business-class-seat/ which is another reason to hope to fly TK some time in the future.

Thanks for posting this. I saw Lucky posted about this as well.  Have you seen anywhere about what routes will be getting these new planes?

The only thing I recall seeing is that they hope to start service to Australia.

THY.com seems to have issues. Not showing anything (revenue or miles) when I search JFK-TLV.

Is the weight limit on tk flights to the US the same 23kg as other airlines?
