We are headed to Istanbul in 2017!

Last week, Skyteam had a huge Business Class fare sale from the Bay Area to Istanbul!

Skyteam and Oneworld were in a price war for business class seats last week to certain locations in Europe, including Istanbul.

Istanbul is known as the city where the East meets the West and separates Asia from Europe.

But, how did we get round trip Business Class tickets on KLM for $882.26 per person?

Good Question!

Here is what we did:

  1.  We found the dates and flights that we wanted on google.com/flights
  2. Then went to AirFrance.com and found the exact same flight for the same price and purchased it

A Few Tips:

On our American Express Card we had an offer from Air France for $200 back on a purchase of $1,000.

We used that Amex Card to purchase the tickets.  Soon after, we saw the statement credit on our card!

Bringing our total to $882.26 Per Person!

I’m super excited to be flying on KLM’s new 787 Dreamliner and even more excited to get our KLM Delft Blue House (a complimentary gift to all business class passengers).

  •  7 days in Istanbul
  • KLM business class on the new 787 Dreamliner
  • A KLM Delft Blue House

All for $882.26, how could we say no?!?

Have you flown business class on KLM?  How was your experience?
