Earlier today we shared a fantastic business-class fare from the US and Canada to Israel priced from just $1,885 round-trip in Turkish Airlines' excellent business class. Now it appears that Turkish is offering discounted flights to Europe as well — but only from New York City. You can fly one-stop from JFK to London, Paris, Rome, Prague and other cities starting at just $1,856 round-trip, including a stopover in Istanbul. So you can visit Western Europe and Turkey on one trip for less than $2,000 in lie-flat business class.

You can also skip the stopover if you'd like, but those fares will price out closer to $2,000 round-trip. Note that you'll be backtracking by routing through Istanbul to get to Western Europe, but you'll be earning extra miles and saving quite a bit of money in the process.

Like with the TLV flights, these fares appear to book into the "J" fare class, which means you'll earn 100% elite-qualifying and redeemable miles on United. These fares are available all the way through the end of the schedule in March 2017, including the peak summer season.

You'll have a lie-flat seat across the Atlantic in Turkish business class.
