Flying Blue, the loyalty program of Air France and KLM, offers a number of promotional awards on the first day of each month. The typical discount is around 20-25%, but they can be as deep as 50%. Promo Awards are mostly for economy flights, but a few awards in business class are usually available.

Flying Blue November 2017 Promo Awards

Flying Blue November 2017 Promo Awards are bookable online, valid for bookings made between November 1 and November 30, 2017, and travel between February 1, 2018 and February, 2018. (except for New York to Paris Orly through December 31, 2017). This month’s promo awards will get you 25% off coach awards to or from North America:

  • Boston to Europe
  • Houston to Europe
  • San Francisco to Europe
  • Vancouver to Europe

This month’s awards are all on Air France economy class, and roundtrip award cost just 37,500 miles per person, instead of the normal 50,000 miles.

Rarely the promo awards are from west coast U.S. cities, so it is exciting to see my home airport San Francisco on the list this month. I looked up San Francisco to Paris for a family of four. Dates are widely available! Here’s the outbound flight:

and availability for the return flight is also quite good:

With the 25% discount, you can fly your family of four to Europe for just 150,000 miles. The great thing about Flying Blue Promo Awards is that you can use them to travel anywhere within Europe, including Israel! The downside is that you cannot add a domestic segment on Alaska or Delta airlines to reposition.
