    Baby is wonderful and your readers will have a great time there!

    However, obtaining a visa is an ordeal and people should allow extra time for processing.

    Thanks for this one…was going to use miles to get to Baku next August. I’ve been wanting to go backpacking in the Caucasus mountains since I was a little girl (maybe I still am). Maybe the fare will come back, who knows!

    Have just checked flexible month search on ITA for Feb/Mar 2014.
    Airfare a/i on Turkish JFK-GYD RT is $681.

      @Michael – Good find. This fare is United/Lufthansa’s response to the Turkish fare. We publish the LH fare because Turkish fares are non-mileage earning except with Turkish. Spending an extra $40 would mean earning 11.8k+ miles on United which is significantly better than saving the $40. 11.8K miles is just just 700 miles away from an domestic one way ticket or could be used for a larger award ticket.

      From an editorial standpoint, we do not do Turkish fares except when they are great (qualitative measurement vs a quantitative measurement of 6 cents per mile) because their fares are non-mileage earning with United or US Airways. An example of great that we recently posted is New York to the Maldives for under $900. Our decision to not feature Turkish fares can be found here: http://www.theflightdeal.com/2013/03/02/turkish-airlines-mileage-accrual-changes-with-united-airlines-and-why-we-will-no-longer-feature-their-fares/
