Stumbled on this gem yesterday and had to share. Play around with dates and you'll find even better deals. Mine came to $2033 for the same routing, Sep 26-Oct 6. Dates through September and October. I've seen coach tickets from the East Coast to TLV for $1500 regularly, this is a steal. Lie flat business 777 seat on the top European airline. Similar pricing from BOS and ATL as well.
Search Google flights, Kayak, or direct from Turkish. Also applies to Ukrainian Air.
Flying business class through will allow access to the top notch lounge at IST, could be worth it to extend the layover at IST.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.
