Reply To: Flying Blue Redemption Changes 1st June 2013

Back to Forum


Currently under the flight promotions are just Le Premiere offers on AF, which have been emailed a few days ago to members.They list Asia from 130,000 miles one way.

I have just tried Mile bookings, and from AMS to KUL for eg, the total charges on KLM are MORE than before, at over € 240! The system before was around €150.
A flight from LHR would cost you over €480!
This is a huge increase, and NO reduction at all in the fees or charges.

Not the 50% discount on KLM to Asia for a one way Business seat, that were on offer before! These were 40,000 miles approx € 140 total charges.

However, you can book under the old system until the end of the year, but by calling FB Centre in Paris.
Does not seem to include any discounted promotions.
An Asia one way Business was 80,000 as a classic award redemption,

Again, badly launched from FB, but run by Air France, so always a let down!
