E+ members receive two upgrade vouchers per membership year that can be used as system wide upgrades. Vouchers are not delivered to E+ status holders in physical or electronic form and only exist on the screens of TK agents.

Simple method for booking upgrade using E+ voucher(s)

1) Look for itinerary on TK.com which is selling J class. (not the FT shorthand but the actual "J" fare bucket, which is TK's lowest Business Class fare)
2) Put said itinerary on hold in Economy Class via "book and pay later". You will receive a PNR. You will have roughly 7 days to pay, although the fare isn't guaranteed.
3) Call TK 1-800 number in the US. Request that the agent confirm upgrade space for all flights you are looking to upgrade.
4) Request to put the agent briefly on hold and complete payment back on TK.com
5) Complete upgrade with same agent who confirmed the upgrade space.

You might be asked to enter a PIN number via an automatic system to access your vouchers - this is the PIN you use to log-on to your TK M&S account.

He didn't mention anything, just upgraded me, I only have 2 vouchers too,
small bus for C passenger, 20 seats, some room for some people to stay stand also, may be small in case of a full C cabin, they seemed to have a bunch of them, nice touch compare to the previous situation, didn't have to wait for the Y and Y+ pax.

Better late than never considered that even an airport like ISB ( 1 Gate ) was able to do so 1 month after TK started the route.

Maybe but only maybe,they will be able to organise priority boarding in the next 5-7 years

@ pvgman.For which route have you used your vouchers ?

I just booked SIN-IST-MAD and LHR-IST-HKG as a single booking with no stopovers with TK, first half was an 'E' fare and second half was a 'G' fare.

Called up 10 minutes after the tickets were issued, spoke to an operator, he checked availability for me and immediately confirmed that I was now in J for the SIN-IST and IST-HKG legs - an email came through straight away with that confirmation too.

He was a little confused when I was asking if SIN-MAD was counted as one voucher's worth of upgrades or whether it was per segment, but he was happy to upgrade the two long flights for me so I wasn't going to push the envelope any further than I needed to.

The only thing he mentioned was that it was a 20 Euro fee to revert back to Y for those flights - but overall it was extremely painless to get it all confirmed!

If they are asking you which segments,always tell them R/T.
Don't take No for an answer !

Tell them they've made a mistake and that the vouchers are,as usual,
valid for a r/t .

Have you guys received any miles from the tickets you have upgraded with these vouchers? Example Y booking upgraded to J would still earn Y miles?

Miles are originally booked miles.

This year I purchased comfort class, upgraded to business and got comfort class mileage. I wouldn't exclude possibility that there are other FFP that credit differently.

Today I successfully upgraded el-cheapo 4 segment flight with Elite Plus vouchers. G/V classes. Made sure in advance that upgrade J class is available.

Local office said that I could only upgrade 2 segments. Called Elite+ line and succeeded at first attempt. It took a little longer due to THY system slowness but was overall a pleasant experience.

I never managed to do it for my two segments, but then again, I didn't care that much that I bothered too much. I got my upgrades between IST-PVG-IST, which was important anyways. I called their Elite+ as well. It seems to be a hit or miss, depending on whom you talk to.

I booked LAX-IST-MAD/BCN-IST-LAX back in june for travel in April 2013 in W/G, made Elite Plus in October and then called for upgrade to J on all legs. Agent was very helpful, no hassles at all, even with the forced overnight in IST on way to MAD.
