It has been a long time since we saw a truly great set of Promo Awards from Flying Blue (the loyalty program dedicated to KLM and Air France), but it's worth flagging that this month, there are actually a couple of good transatlantic Business Class deals on offer.

As part of the first semi-meaningful Promo Awards that we have seen in over 18 months, Flying Blue (the Air France/KLM rewards program) is currently offering 25% off award bookings to/from Miami.

This Month’s Disappointing Flying Blue Promo Awards

We've seen quite a few good Promo Awards offered in the past 4-5 months and with last month's deals offering a couple of nice awards for travel across the Atlantic (and a good deal between Europe and the Middle East), I had high hopes for the awards released this month. My hopes were misplaced.

Air France's La Première First Class product is widely considered to be one of the best (if not the best) First Class experiences you can have, and it has long been one of the harder and more expensive First Class products to book if you're looking to use points. Well, it just got harder and more expensive.

The September 2019 Flying Blue Promo awards cover travel between 1 November and 31 December 2019 and while there'rs a real dearth of premium cabin options this month (you won't be globe-trotting at a discount with these promo awards), there are still a few very attractive deals for travel (in either direction) between North America and Europe.

Fly One-Way USA – Europe Business Class For Just 42,400 Points

I'm a big fan of the transferable currencies various credit cards offer and a major reason why I love collecting these currencies is that they help me get outsize value when I use them for premium cabin travel. Right now Citi is offering a 25% bonus when you transfer its ThankYou points over to the Air France/KLM Flying Blue program and this represents a very good opportunity to book some great Business Class cabins for comparatively few points.

Did You Know That You Can Earn Flying Blue Miles On JAL?

When I discover something I didn't previously know about a loyalty program I rarely use I'm generally not very surprised because modern-day loyalty programs have so many nuances that it's almost impossible to keep on top of all of them...but today's discovery genuinely caught me off guard - I had no idea that you could credit Japan Airlines (JAL) flights to the Flying Blue program (and vice versa) and this is something I would expect myself to know.

Air France Clarifies My Flying Blue Status Question

Last week I wrote about something which appeared to be an anomaly with the way some Flying Blue members will see their Level Miles converted to Experience Points (XP) when the revamped Flying Blue program takes effect from 1 April 2018. A reader, Alex, had got in touch with me to point out that, if you access details of the new Flying Blue program while in France, the conversion rate for Level Miles to XPs shows as being lower than it does for other countries.

Are Flying Blue Members In France About To Get A Raw Deal?

 One of the great things about having people interested and engaged in the miles and points world is that we have eyes everywhere. Where one of us may miss something that an airline or hotel chain has said, posted or done someone else will see it and flag it up. TFM reader Alex left a comment on my post about how Flying Blue status will be earned from 1 April 2018 saying that Flying Blue had already changed one of the details of the new program before it has even launched.

How To Earn Flying Blue Status From 1 April 2018

Earlier today Flying Blue (the loyalty program for Air France/KLM) announced a raft of changes to its scheme, one of which included a whole new way of attaining Flying Blue status. I covered all the details of the Flying Blue announcement earlier but, as I've had so many questions about the new way of earning Flying Blue status, I thought I'd address that in a little more detail.

Flying Blue Goes Revenue Based – Full Details Here

At the beginning of October a mistakenly published mileage calculator combined with an eagle-eyed traveler alerted us to the fact that the Flying Blue rewards program (the program for Air France/KLM) would almost certainly be moving to a revenue-based system. Today that is exactly what Flying Blue has announced.

Another Devaluation? Is Air France/KLM’s Flying Blue Going Revenue Based?

In what appears to be a bid to offer fewer and fewer redeemable miles to customers, airlines around the world have slowly been moving to a revenue-based system for mileage accrual. In a nutshell this means that the number of miles you earn for a trip is now linked to how much you pay for your fare so, unsurprisingly, this isn't a popular development for flyers like me who like to pay as little as possible.

Virgin Atlantic Miles Are About To Become A Bit More Interesting

Virgin Atlantic Flying Club miles don't often get much love from miles & points bloggers because, essentially, they really aren't all that useful for getting readers great value redemptions in good premium cabins. There is an exception to this that I discussed recently but, for premium cabin travel, Virgin Atlantic miles aren't going to get many pulses racing. Having said that, they are about to get a bit more interesting.....and possibly even more useful.

Flying Blue Upgrades Now Available On All Fares

Flying Blue is the loyalty program for a number of airlines but the primary ones are Air France & KLM. Flying Blue has become more and more relevant for US based travelers as it has gradually become a transfer partner for all three of the major transferable currencies in the US - Amex Membership Rewards, Citi ThankYou Points and, as of last month, Chase Ultimate Rewards - so any positive changes to the program are very welcome.
