Amazing Business Class Fares US-Europe From $1230 Roundtrip

Turkish Airlines is selling Atlanta – Europe roundtrips from $1230, and they’re available most days that flies — Turkish Atlanta service is 5 days a week.

Here’s Atlanta – Berlin for just $1230 roundtrip, which is incredible. You can credit the miles to United’s MileagePlus if you wish (you’ll earn 100% of flown miles).

To give you a sense of how cheap this is, the base fare is just $292.50 each way for business class, that’s less than the fuel surcharge for the fare.

Key details of fare basis JV3BRO50:

  • 50 day advance purchase
  • Saturday night stay required
  • Stopovers are permitted in Istanbul, but getting a visa is cumbersome for Americans currently (transiting Istanbul is not an issue)
  • Friday/Saturday outbounds cost $10 more, Saturday/Sunday returns cost $10 more
  • Tickets must be issued by December 14, but there’s no way the fare will last this long
  • Non-refundable, $200 change fee, $400 no show fee

Hat tip to One Mile at a Time who notes that you’ll need to book using an online travel agency site like Expedia or Orbitz, these fares don’t seem bookable on the Turkish website.

Other cities like Barcelona and Belgrade are available as destinations, probably others as well.

Final tip, when making small talk with your flight attendant and you’re asked why you’re flying Turkish, don’t tell them you’re a Gülenist.

  1. Hey folks, a quick word of advice, if you use the link on Google flights to go to TK website, the booking comes up to TXL and it shows it as an Economy Class for the same price. But get the dates you want and go to on of the OTA’s like Expedia and it is OK, comes up as J. Thought I would alert just in case you miss it in the excitement

  2. A330s are proper lie-flat. One of the best TATL Js. The only negative about traveling TK is the total ops mess that is IST. Sudden gate changes, clueless airport personnel, useless signage. But do take a stopover and visit the city if you can. TK puts J passengers in pretty nice hotels for overnight, and it’s a $20 taxi ride to the city center. Having a non-US passport helps, but even if you need a visa, it’s just $20 advance or $30 on the spot.

  3. No way am I flying an airline from a country that in-prisons journalists and political adversaries. Even if Turkish Airlines paid me I wouldn’t fly them.
    Sometimes holding on to liberal democratic principals has a personal cost to it, you fly a different airlines that costs more money. I would no more fly an airline out of a country run by this despot than I would Satan Airlines.,
