Turkish Airlines – $910: Boston – Male, Maldives. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

A few months ago, we mentioned how Turkish Airlines is launching service to Istanbul from Boston in June, 2014. We are beginning to see fares to the Middle East, Africa and the Indian Sub-continent becoming much more competitive from Boston. In general, we do not do Turkish deals because their cheap fares are non-mileage earning with all their partners. You can get miles with Turkish. We think the Maldives for $910 is worth the exception to do a deal post despite it being non-mileage earning.
