Can it be? New York [EWR] to Istanbul US$525 RT, nonstop, including taxes? For those Americans who would rather travel the globe than preside over the killing and eating of a big bird in order to celebrate Thanksgiving, you are in luck.
The travel wire is hot reporting that United airlines is offering fares from New York’s Newark [EWR] airport to Istanbul for $525 round-trip, nonstop, including all taxes. The only stipulation is that you must stay over a Saturday night.
Instead of eating that Tapioca, go to Topkapi Palace. Instead of eating that Basil Stuffing, go to the Basilica Cistern. Instead of eating a Turkey this Thanksgiving, fly to Turkey!
