One of the great values in the Air France KLM Flying Blue program, historically, has been their ‘promo awards’ — a rotating set of cities for discounted travel. You can fly from any featured city through Paris (if Air France) or Amsterdam (if KLM) to anywhere in Europe for fewer miles.
Once upon a time they were an amazing value, one way business class was normally 50,000 miles and selected cities were 50% off. More recently the ‘normal’ cost has been 62,500 miles and the discounts have been smaller.

The number of cities chosen each month for travel to and from North America has shrunk as well. Last month’s promo awards were disappointing — but not non-existent for North America.
Promo awards for April booking and June and July travel have been live for a couple of days. I’ve waited to post thinking it was possible they weren’t all loaded, that they could still be in the process of updating. But nothing has changed: There are no North America promo awards this month.
At FlyingBlue.com the filter to search promo awards doesn’t even include North America as an option.
On the Air France site at least North America still exists, it’s just empty of choices.
