I know this must sound stupid to some or maybe it was already asked in another post I have no idea, but I wanted to know if anyone here has ever booked their flights to Turkey 2 months in advanced?

I never did in all the time that I was visiting my husband (at the time fiance) in Turkey, I usually did my bookings 2 or 3 weeks before my actual travel and already fares are so high as it is for me to travel to Turkey from the USA. I don't want to pay more then I should and with the way the airlines changes prices all the time it's disgusting, one day it can be $800 USD and next week it can go up to $1,500 USD and back down again.

Anyone, your feedback will be greatly appreciated as I will be looking into flights to Turkey in August.

I think there was another post regarding this and someone gave a tip regarding this and mentioned that also the fares are the same 2 mons in advance as 2 weeks in advance. I looked and booked fares from CA usa to IST and got the same amounts ranging from 800.00 to 1500.00 as you posted and they fluctuated from day to day amazingly enough.

What online travel websites are you using to check for airfare?

I am checking
kayak.com
expedia.com
priceline.com
travelocity.com

They all seem to be in the $1500-1900 range for RT.

I saw in another website where they recommended using ASAP (http://www.asaptickets.com/), so i posted a question about if it was better to use travel agent or buy tickets online such as through this or other sites... so far, thier tickets (ASAP) seem to be the lowest, But I'm keeping my options open.

From what city in the US to Istanbul and on what dates you want to fly? I just checked an example on a Dutch website from Washington Dulles Airport (1-15 August) and you can fly for 997 euro.

much much to expensive. cheapest cities to fly from our NYC and Chicago. THY uses America as a partner if coming from another US City. I have flown as cheap as $699 USD roundtrip from Minneapolis.
KLM is sometimes reasonable but they are the worst airline in the world. Rudest staff on the ground and in the air by far!!!
(Go direcly to THY website. This will be your cheapest fair)

Hey, did I say it was with KLM? Actually this flight is with Alitalia. And indeed, THY is cheap and KLM is rude.

I pointed out KLM because like I said, they are 2nd cheapest from the US, sometimes Delta too I think. No other reason.
