Analysis

Here’s an example booking for a spring break trip to Venice, Italy-VCE:

IMG_1944-003

2014-12-08_14-45-22

Sample booking with cash from March 15-23, 2015

2014-12-08_14-41-02

This same exact trip would cost you only 25,000 Flying Blue miles + $247.94 roundtrip in economy

Using our Award Ticket Calculator tool, I found the following:

2014-12-08_14-50-31

This trip returns a value of 2.96 cents/mile for the booking, I consider this to be a good use of Air France/KLM Flying Blue miles and a good use of AMEX points (if you can transfer from there)

 

Don’t forget: 

  • Booking for this deal runs from December 1 to December 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: Although the airports from the US are limited, some should find this deal useful for a spring break trip to Europe in March.
