The Big Picture
This might the least expensive economy fare we’ve ever seen, so if you have any intention of visiting Europe between November 2022 and February 2023, don’t skip this deal. During this time period, we found plenty of availability in economy on Air France and KLM for just 11,250 Flying Blue miles per person each way plus $60 in taxes and fees for the outbound and $150 for the return. You can depart from New York or Chicago and arrive in either Paris, Amsterdam, Athens, or Barcelona all at this great price.
While Flying Blue is a transfer partner of many different flexible point programs, the best way to book this fare is with Amex Membership Rewards. Currently there is a 25% transfer bonus when converting Membership Rewards to Flying Blue miles which means you can book these flights for just 9,000 Membership Rewards. This is nearly unheard of.
All of the dates below have confirmed availability for at least 2 passengers and in many cases more than that.
9-11, 14-17, 20-22, 24, 25, 28-30
1, 2, 4-8, 12
1-9, 11-25, 29, 30
