Looking for an award chart with the prices of Air France / KLM Flying Blue Classic Awards?

You won’t find one on the Air France site anymore.

But we’ve used their online calculator and some phone research to fill in the prices for each of the award regions in the Flying Blue program. Just click on the region name and you’ll see the one-way award prices for trips starting in that region, as well as the countries Flying Blue considers to be part of that region, from forum reports.

If you have Citi ThankYou points with an annual fee based card or American Express Membership Rewards points, you can transfer them directly into Flying Blue miles any time to fly on Air France, all SkyTeam airlines, or the other partner airlines listed here, including Alaska Airlines.

You’ll find Flying Blue miles good values for travel to the Caribbean, Hawaii, and northern Latin America (think Peru, Colombia).

To Europe 62,500 miles one way in business class is expensive, especially with fuel surcharges, but availability is great, and better than what Delta SkyMiles members get on Air France flights. And Papeete, with nonstop Air France service from Los Angeles is a decent deal at 30,000 miles one way in Economy Class.

    The Delta US-Europe chart using Virgin Flying Club miles (in your article 3/25/2016 article re using Chase points) says “routes as above.” The routes above are limited to from London to 8 US cities with SLC having asterics (also two additional very limited UK-US routes).
    The routes do not include any other European countries or west coast US cities like SFO or LAX.

    Does this mean these are the only Delta US-Europe flights that can be booked with Flying Club miles? If so, neither your article or any other blogs on the subject point out this very severe limitation on booking Delta flights with Virgin awards. Please clarify.

      @Terry – They can book the other Delta routes to the UK. Just checked on the phone ATL-CDG and it came up for 30k miles one way in Economy.

      The more important restriction that’s now displayed clearly on their website (wasn’t before) is that each segment is charged separately. So if you have a connecting flight within the U.S., you’ll get charged separately for that leg. Before, that wasn’t listed explicitly, and was a hit or miss policy with agents. Maybe it is still hit or miss, but the policy is clear now.

    I have a Delta AMEX card which I intend to keep. However, I would also like to apply for the CHASE Sapphire Preferred Card. I primarily fly DELTA. Can I redeem CHASE points for DELTA Skymiles at a rate competitive to AMEX points?

      @Marty – Unfortunately you can’t turn Chase points into Delta miles the way you can with Amex. Chase instead partners with Air France, which you can transfer points to and book Delta flights. And the prices are close to what Delta charges, but the miles are completely separate from your Delta miles, so you can’t mix and match them. But it’s as you might imagine not as convenient as being able to deal directly with Delta miles via Amex.

      Here’s how it all worksL

    How do I check availability of a flight to be able to use the 25K miles to pay for flight. I have Chase saphire points that I can transfer to Air France but I don’t want to switch them over if I can’t make sure I get the flight I want. Any ideas? I want to go Louisville, KY to Athens, Greece. Is this still 25K?

      @ABC – It’s 30 / 75 thanks. There aren’t many great trans-Atlantic or Pacific bargains hidden in the charts.
