    What is the best way to get Turkish miles from American Express?

    Do you need Turkish miles specifically, or you just want to travel on Turkish?

    American Express Membership Rewards can be transferred to ANA (round-trip bookings only), Aeroplan and Singapore. Your best bet would probably be Aeroplan, which can be used to book a flight on Turkish.

    This post may be a good starting point for you:

    Need to fly from SFO to JED end of November. Trying to get business class on the way out and ok with economy on the way back. Any ideas to get this done as a member of American Express Platinum card but under 80 000 miles per person please?

    80k total, for the round-trip? That's not really a ballpark range for using Amex points to the Middle East if you want Business class in either direction. One-ways in business are in the 80k-100k range with most programs, I think.

    If you're going to use Aeroplan you'd need to check using their website. But booking this close in it's quite possible there's no award availability.
