    It depends upon the destination. According to the Washington Post:

    "For example, round-trip fare to Cairo starts at $735, including taxes, for travel Aug. 11 through Oct. 31; fare is sold out for most summer dates, but is widely available for October departures. Fare to Cairo on other airlines starts at about $850 for October travel."

    But is the $735 less than what TK was charging last week? Plus there's the part where it isn't particularly available.

    Airlines are very good at announcing "sales" for flights. They're less consistent about having the fares be lower than they were before the sale was announced.

    Isn't this a problem throughout the industry - is TK borrowing from the UA/DL/AA playbook???

    Yes. Which is why I posed the initial reply I did.
