Mistake fare – South Africa to Switzerland in Business Class just $474 (one-way)

Posted on June 21, 2013 by in Mistake Fares, Turkish Airlines Review

On the heels of the Seychelles mistake fare comes this fare from Turkish airlines. It's $474.30 for 5,736 miles flown in business class from South Africa to Switzerland.

Cape Town and Johannesburg work for the departure and Geneva and Switzerland as destinations. For every month until mid next year I was able to find a number of dates each month. There is even availability just past Christmas/ New Year which is prime season in South Africa.

Apparently the fare is best bookable using united.com. So far tickets have been issued and not cancelled. Verify that you have received an eticket number after booking.

The A330 that operates the route from Johannesburg to Istanbul has a new business class lie-flat configuration. It does fetch good reviews. Turkish Airline also has excellent catering.

As usual:

– Use ITA Matrix 30 day search to find availability
– Please don't call the airline! Wait a couple of weeks for seat assignments.
– Be aware that the airline may cancel tickets. Each mistake fare is handled differently by each airline.

This fare was originally posted in the 'Good Deal' Thread on Flyertalk.
