As airline prices surge, points and miles can make a big difference in stretching the travel budget. We experienced this when booking a great deal on a business class flight to the Middle East.
Our first stop on the Middle East trip is Israel and we wanted a flight we could book with points and miles. Turkish Airlines offered a one-way business class flight for 45,000 airline miles plus, $233.60 in taxes (per person). The business class flight departs from Dallas, flies to Istanbul, and then connects through to Tel Aviv.
Turkish Airlines is not an airline we considered much in the past, but in searching, we found other interesting fares with Turkish. For example, a one-way business class ticket from Tel Aviv to Dubai for 15,000 airline miles.
In a time of high-ticket prices, points and miles can make a big difference in traveling.
