This is about as cheap as you will find to a major European gateway from the West Coast. The fare is literally $151 per person plus all the taxes and fees (Europe still has their fuel surcharge). The total per person comes to $699 roundtrip, all taxes included.

Sample Itinerary:

January 12, 2016: SFO-IST-FCO
January 20, 2016 FCO-IST-SFO

Base Fare: $151
Taxes/Fees/Surcharges: $548

TOTAL: $699

Good Luck!

TD for your original title - why in the world did you originally post it this way. From my Deal Alert:

"$151 SFO-Rome Roundtrip per person, plus taxes/fees ($699 Total) on Turkish Air"


So misleading....

I mostly posted it that way because that's how deals are posted. The cost of a flight is $151 and then you pay all the taxes, fees and surcharges on top of that. That gets you to $699 total.

SFO to Milan was $476 earlier today. Gone now though.
$700 is not a slickdeal.

You mean like when you buy something for $50 and it comes to $54 with tax? Maybe it's just me but if I was buying a PS4 for $150 and with all the taxes and fees it came in at $700 I would think putting $150 in the title isn't gonna make you a lot of friends hug

I actually know several people who are routing through Turkey because it's such a cheap option right now. The other carriers aren't offering a deal at all so while it's a good deal I know many people will chose to not fly through Turkey at the moment.

Dude, congress passed the law 2 years ago that airfare prices must include taxes. Your post title actually violated the law.

Dude, do I look like a travel agency or an airline? Rather stupid that the airline industry is the only one that is required to advertise prices with all taxes included, but that's a subject for another discussion.

Airline taxes are federal so it is always same price no matter what state. 99% of other items very by ship address

Airline taxes depend on # of stops and different airports have different charges. Taxes account for a significant portion of the ticket, this is why people used to get a nasty surprise when purchasing tickets. This is why including them was mandated. There is nothing wrong in telling how much will a customer pay right away. This is actually the right way of doing business.
