Turkish Airlines: Los Angeles – Nairobi, Kenya. $1,028. Roundtrip, including all Taxes and Fees

[Update – There is a current State Department travel advisory out for Kenya (while on the topic of travel advisories, Mexico also has one). With all travel, take common precautions and stay away from the real trouble areas — in this case, the border with Somalia.]

Sample Date:

  • November 8th – 19th. Valid for travel until March 31st, 2012. http://matrix.itasoftware.com and flexible month search to find exact availability.

  • 19,636 miles  or 5.2 cents per mile. Turkish Airlines is part of the Star Alliance and are partners with United and US Airways — however, only United credits 100% mileage.
