Europe Business Class From Just 30,500 Points With Chase, Amex or Citi Points

New variable Air France KLM Flying Blue points pricing is live and often makes no sense. Some awards are more expensive, some less expensive. Instead of a hidden award chart they have a calculator.

But they still offer various routes at 25% or 50% off each month and new ones are up for booking in December and travel in February and March.

Here are this month’s transatlantic deals:

You can travel in either direction, and connections beyond Amsterdam and Paris gateways are part of the deal and can even drive down award prices. Routes are often discounted when flights aren’t full, suggesting that there should be good availability.

This month’s North America-Europe awards are business class only. You can connect elsewhere in Europe if you wish. American Express, Chase, and Citibank points all transfer to Flying Blue.

  1. Do you know why Seattle is always higher than Vancouver on these? Taxes I get, but does Seattle demand that much of a “premium” over YVR? Just curious…

  2. @David – Seattle is a much bigger and stronger market than Vancouver is. Seatac Airport handles 50 million passengers every year, whereas Vancouver sees half that number. Also, Seattle hosts the headquarters of Microsoft, Amazon, Starbucks, and most of Boeing’s manufacturing and engineering, whereas Vancouver doesn’t have any big name employers and is mostly focused on raw materials and energy (take a look at BC Business’ Top 50 biggest companies in BC by revenue in 2017 and you’ll see what I mean).
