I’ve had my eye on Turkish’s new 787 business class for quite some time, and finally pulled the trigger. The reason? Turkish has been running a 30% off sale that ends on 12/31/21 which meant my flight on their best 787 business class was just 31,500 miles. Absolutely nuts. Full retail would only be 45k miles, but every little bit helps.
Currently, I’m planning to do just a quick weekend trip with my buddy Dave who has Istanbul at the top of his bucket list. We’ll keep a close eye on the ever evolving Covid restrictions as well as the plummeting Lira and what instability they could cause. Fingers crossed we’re able to make the trip without a hitch.

A few years ago I visited Istanbul and stayed at the Grand Hyatt. I’m heavily considering a return trip, but would also be open to suggestions if y’all have any favorites. There is a part of me that really would love to stay at Ciragan Palace, but not sure its worth the price if we’ll be doing a lot of touring.
