Each month, Air France / KLM’s Flying Blue program has special promo awards for discounted award flights to/from specific cities.

Once in a while, though, they launch “Special Edition” promo sales that last mere days. Here’s one I reported on last November, for example.

This time, you will have from October 16-20 to book flights within the November 2019 – March 2020 timeframe at extra special rates.

Standout “Special Edition” FlyingBlue Deals

(See the full list of Special Edition Awards here.)

Los Angeles to/from Europe for 14,000 miles in coach, 28,000 in Premium Economy

New York to/from Europe for 11,000 miles in coach

Seattle to/from Europe for 29,000 miles in Premium Economy or 36,000 miles in Business Class

Europe to/from the Seychelles for 38,000 miles in Business Class

Toronto to/from Europe for 32,000 miles in Business Class (or 11,000 miles in coach / 25,000 in Premium Eco).

These can be fantastic bargains for some, though bear in mind that FlyingBlue uses dynamic pricing. Travel beyond Paris and Amsterdam could wind up pricing even less expensively.

For those in NYC like me, a positioning flight up to Toronto could make a lot of sense.

Now, just cross your fingers that we see a transfer bonus in the next couple of days!

Remember, the following all transfer to Flying Blue:

New to all of this? My “introduction to miles and points” book, MilesTalk: Live Your Wildest Travel Dreams Using Miles and Points is available on Amazon and at major booksellers.

I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at the South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
