Amex 25% transfer bonus to Air France/KLM Flying Blue
Amex has been running more and more transfer bonuses as of late, and the newest addition to the list is Air France/KLM’s program, Flying Blue. Flying Blue is a dynamic award currency, but contrary to my worst fears, the program still presents an enormous amount of value especially if you can hit during a transfer bonus, and/or stack it with a promo award – see below. Essentially, up to 999k, you’ll get 1250 Flying Blue points for every 1000k Membership Rewards you transfer.
Here’s a look at the 25% transfer bonus to Air France/KLM FlyingBlue
At this point, there isn’t a end date announced.
Some cool options for Air France/KLM Flying Blue?
Using Air France to fly on Air France Business Class
I think Air France offers one of the very best business class products from the US to Europe. One thing to note…avoid the A380. Other than that, especially with equipment upgrades, you’ll get a stellar product to fly flat and experience some tasty champagne and food in flight. One thing to note – Air France uses dynamic pricing which means there is no table, but if you can book biz between 50-72k you’re getting a solid deal. I booked the 77W in business class and you can read the full review here.
Using Air France to fly Virgin Atlantic Upper Class
This is a great use of American Express points that takes advantage of the partnership between Air France and Virgin Atlantic. Air France doesn’t throw as many taxes and fees on bookings vs what Virgin puts on their own award flights. You should be able to book Virgin Atlantic Upper Class starting at 61k + $200 give or take.
Don’t forget there is the classic herringbone styled Virgin Atlantic Upper Class seen below on the A330.
But also the new Upper Class featured on the A350
This could certainly be valuable to you when combining it with a FlyingBlue Promo award
