Every month Flying Blue releases a group of cities that offer reduced mileage requirements for travel on Air France and KLM. If you’re thinking of booking a trip, this is one of the most attractive promotional periods to do so. This month, we see some large market North American cities with significantly reduced rates. Note, that you must book these deals between Feb 1st and Feb 29th, but travel between April 1st and May 31st, 2020 Details here
A look at the deals to/from Paris and North America
While we don’t have deals like we have in the past ( Chicago for 58k roundtrip in biz ) flying one way in econ for 11.5k out of Boston and 45k in biz to/from Toronto is nothing to scoff at.
I was lucky enough to use Flying Blue to travel in Business Class last year from Paris to Washington D.C. aboard their 777-300ER. This specific plane features their flagship, reverse herringbone, lie-flat product. One of the best in the sky IMO.
Flying Blue is one of the easiest mileage currencies to accrue.
It’s partnered with several credit card programs that allow flexible transfer straight into Air France.
- Capital One
- American Express
Here’s a list of cards that we like best and a little overview of their benefits. Each is listed on our top credit card picks.
