Flying Blue is the joint program of SkyTeam member Air France and KLM. They consider Tel Aviv to be part of Europe which can make for some decent deals.

-Flying Blue charges fuel surcharges on their own flights but not on Delta flights. However availability is significantly better on their own flights than on Delta flights. When there is Delta availability though it’s significantly cheaper to book the Delta flights with Flying Blue miles than with Delta Skypesos.

-They normally charge 25K miles each way in coach and 62.5K miles each way in business class to Israel but they run rotating monthly promo awards throughout the year that are valid for select cities.

-Promo awards are only valid on Air France or KLM.

-Travel is valid in either direction and is valid for one-way or round-trip travel.

-You need to book the current promo awards by 11/30.

-Promo awards are nonrefundable and non-changeable.

-Promo awards require Air France/KLM Flying Blue miles. You can’t use Delta miles for these awards and you can’t transfer Delta miles to Flying Blue.

-With the current offer you can fly in January or February in either direction between Boston, Chicago, Houston, JFK,  or San Francisco, and Israel, Europe, or Russia for 18,750 miles each way in coach.

-With the current offer you can fly in February in either direction between Detroit, or Washington DC, and Israel, Europe, or Russia for 18,750 miles each way in coach.

-You can fly in January or February in either direction between Calgary, Edmonton, or Montreal, or Vancouver and Israel, Europe, or Russia for 46,875 miles each way in business class.

-You can fly in February in either direction between Vancouver and Israel, Europe, or Russia for 46,875 miles each way in business class.

    @CollegeGirl:
    yes it’s very easy to transfer to flying blue, just a call into your credit card services, with your flying blue account number ready (required to open this account), and it’s all done.

    Ok people, here is my dilemma, wish you could help a little.

    Im in israel with CSR, 100k points. My brother is having first child early mid-Jan. If its a boy (we don’t know) i would like to get to states within 7 days (you know for what). so if i transfer points to flyingblue, would this rates be available like 7 days before January 15th? if not, are there any other ways to book a cheap flight with point 7 days before.?

    Dan;How do I do this? I have an SPG AmEx Card. I’d like the 25K Points that you mentioned!
    “-The Starwood Consumer AMEX and the Starwood Business AMEX awards 25K signup points with no fee for the first year. 20K Starpoints can transfer into 25K Flying Blue with the permanent 25% transfer bonus. Transfers can take a few days”

    @Jeff: @dan, I just want to ping this, you often compare the big 3 programs of the US, but I’m curious about comparing Delta vs other skymiles partner programs. (and same for the other alliances) Is it always better to just have the US account, or is there a particular program in each alliance that may be better?

    tickets non stop are 750-900 not worth it even with discount bc fuel charges will add around 150-200 a person.

    @mendel:
    Yes, 37K miles+$200 RT is a decent deal. Especially if you need to travel one-way for half that.
