Flying Blue: Fly Between Seattle Or Washington DC And Europe, Israel, Or Russia From 19K Miles

Flying Blue considers Israel to be part of Europe, which makes for mileage bargains, though fuel surcharges apply. JFK to Tel Aviv can be booked for as low as 25K miles in coach, 42.5K points in premium economy, or 53K miles in business class each way.

If you book an award ticket using Air France/KLM Flying Blue miles by 3/31 for travel on select dates between 4/30-6/29 you can find some great deals with Promo Awards.

Promo Awards are nonrefundable and non-changeable. They also have fuel surcharges.

You have to login to an Air France account to search for award space. On this page you can search for awards and click on “You are looking for a flight around these dates” to access the flexible award calendar.

Unfortunately there are no business class sales this month and the North America options are pretty sparse.

This month’s US/Canada awards include:

  • Economy travel to/from Washington DC and Europe/Israel/Russia.
  • Premium Economy travel to/from Seattle and Europe/Israel/Russia.

Some dates will have short connections while other dates will have longer connections, perfect for a day trip to check out Amsterdam or Paris, 2 of my favorite cities in the world!

If one only has a Freedom card, can one transfer the Ultimate points to a friend who has a Sapphire card, and have the friend transfer the points to Flying Blue? Does Chase allow transferring to a friend? Also, is it worth transferring even considering the fuel surcharge, rather then booking via the Chase portal?
