Turkish Airlines/UAL Question

Best deal I can find from IAD to FRA in the fall is on Turkish airlines through Expedia and Vayama. Although it's listed as a Turkish Airlines flight, it's really operated by UAL. However, I can't get this flight to show up on the Turkish Airlines website. Anybody know why? Also, has anybody had experience flying this code-sharing arrangement with UAL, and do you know if you book it as a Turkish Airlines flight, can you still get Economy Plus seats by paying extra? Thanks.

Turkish no econo premium I know of

does not work with codeshare.

Try for an exit in coach check on upgrade options

after you pay for coach FF miles or cash usually works

if you book cheaply with TAL check with UAL on checkin.

Booking through UAL will always be lots more.

Cheaper better than TA altough they lost my luggage one time

years ago they have good prices.
