Re: Loyalty to Turkish airlines

5,000 points = 5,000.00 TL so you can Use the points to pay for anything up-to that value, the option to use points is given at some point during the booking and paying process.

You can also redeem them for goods bought in their online shop. I had some about to run out last year and got myself a kettle.

Not really oldfogy.

I've just booked my return flights for March, Antalya-Kathmandu return by cashing in 20,000 Air Miles due to expire by end of 2018.

The flights are listed at 3,744T.L. and I'm more than pleased at not having to pay the 715 that I would have had to pay if I'd not been part of Miles and Smiles.

I love THY. Meals, choice of seat, 30k luggage + hand luggage all included.

Re: Loyalty to Turkish airlines

Just booked with Turkish Airlines from Gatwick to Izmir out in May/back in June with a short stop over in Istanbul for 298.57. return for the two of us. Much cheaper than direct to Bodrum (which we would have preferred) but the return times from Bodrum were extremely early in the morning. Very happy with our booking.

Sounds like an excuse to have a fish lunch at lake Bafa to me. Enjoy!

Re: Loyalty to Turkish airlines

I think about 3 years, it will tell you on your statement how many will expire 31st Dec 2018 etc, those are the ones that you need to cash in.

Pegasus fly direct to Izmir on a Saturday, just the one flight of the day and always at the TOP of the list when searching so very easy to miss it and lets face it's only a extra 15 minute and 2.50 transfer time and shuttle cost

EDIT
Sometimes in the summer they have also been known to fly direct on a couple of weekdays.
