U.S. to Europe Business Class for 45k Miles

Redeeming miles for a business class ticket on Turkish Airlines can be a great way to enjoy a comfortable and luxurious travel experience. By using the United Airlines rewards chart, you can find award availability and redeem your miles for a Turkish Airlines business class ticket.

Turkish Airline recently released a newer business class product on their Boeing 787 and Airbus A350. Beware of flights with the Boeing 777 as their business class product is outdated. However, regardless of the flight, they all provide an incredible value and comfort to your next trip to Europe.

Turkish Airline has a set rewards chart as shown above. The prices are for Turkish Miles Round Trip, hence one way being only 45,000 miles. This is a great way to fly to Turkey or different parts of Europe for only 45,000 miles.

Check the United Airlines rewards chart: Head over to the United Airlines website and navigate to the “Book a Flight” section. Select “Use Miles” and enter your travel details, including your departure and arrival cities and dates. You will then be able to see the available award options and the number of miles required for each ticket. We recommend you search one-way tickets since it is the easiest way to search for award availability. After finding one availability, you can always search the opposite way and marry the tickets together. Why United for Turkish Airline? We use the United Miles since both United and Turkish Airlines are part of the star alliance, allowing you to find award availability for Turkish air on the United webpage. We found out that the United webpage is the best way to search for award availability due to their flexible dates. We recommend using the older United search tool that can be found here.

On the United page, we want to find award availability that is shown in green. To make sure you are getting the best value, we need to check for 3 things: Make sure it is a flight operated by Turkish Airlines, the class fare ticket should be Business class (I), and finally the airplane being flown should be the Boeing 787 or Airbus A350.

Finishing the booking After we found the award availability, head over to Turkish Airlines to complete the booking with the found dates. Transfer your rewards points from Capital One, Citi ThankYou and Bilt Rewards to Turkish Miles & Smiles for Turkish Airline.

If the search doesn't appear in Turkish Airlines, you should try giving them a call and have the agent book for you instead. You can also call the airline and have them put your award space on hold before, then transfer your points to Turkish Airlines, and then call them again to complete the booking.

Once your booking has been confirmed, you will receive a confirmation email from Turkish Airlines. You can then make any necessary arrangements, such as selecting your seat and adding any additional services, such as baggage or meal options.

It is important to keep in mind that the availability of award seats can change quickly, so it is best to book as soon as possible once you have found availability that works for you.

By following these steps, you can successfully redeem Capital One, Bilt Rewards, and Citi ThankYou points for a Turkish Airlines business class ticket for 45,000 miles. Enjoy your luxurious and comfortable travel experience with Turkish Airlines!
