Analysis

Although the list is limited on routes to/from the U.S., being able to fly from Dallas-DFW to Europe for just 25k miles round trip in economy is a steal.

Here’s an example flight from Dallas-DFW to Tel Aviv-TLV:

Booking this 7-day visit to Tel Aviv, Israel in KLM/Air France economy class will only cost you 25,000 + $262 in taxes/fuel surcharge. This yields a return of (using the handy Weekend Blitz Award Calculator):

Don’t forget: 

  • Booking for this deal runs from July 1 to July 31, 2014.
  • “Reservations must be made exclusively on www.airfrance.com or www.klm.com (except for bookings for children, infants and minors, who are not authorized to book an award on the website).”
  • You’ll still get hit with fuel surcharges!
  • We’ve got a How-to Guide for booking flights with Flying Blue points.

BOTTOM LINE: This round of promotions certainly gets the job done by allowing you to fly from Dallas-DFW to (just about) ANYWHERE in Europe for only 25,000 miles roundtrip + $200-$350 in taxes. This makes it a great deal in my book.
