This yields an excellent return on your Flying Blue miles:

3.55 cents/mile = an excellent return for AMEX/Flying Blue miles

3.55 cents/mile = an excellent return for AMEX/Flying Blue miles

This deal is so good, it might even make sense to purchase a positioning flight to Houston to take advantage of the good deal. If you had to purchase a $200 roundtrip flight to Houston it means you’d be looking at 25,000 miles + ~$450 in taxes/surcharges for a roundtrip flight to Europe in the summer, still not bad at all.
