I have highlighted the value of Air France/KLM Flying Blue Promo Awards on many occasions, though the latest promotion illustrates the deal is not what it once was. With no discounted business class redemption this time around, the value proposition is less, but there are a few economy class redemptions worth considering.
Air France/KLM tends to release a lot of saver space to its own Flying Blue members, not just on many dates, but multiple seats per flight. With diminished fuel surcharges in economy class (about $200 each way), traveling families wishing to conserve miles will find great value in these economy class promotions – with Europe (and Israel) only 25K miles r/t from the saver cities.
This time around, four North American cities are on sale –
- Europe to Cancun – 50% off Premium Economy on Air France
- Europe to Chicago – 50% off Economy on KLM
- Europe to Houston – 50% off Economy on Air France and KLM
- Europe to Washington Dulles – 50% off Economy on Air France and KLM
