Air France/KLM Flying Blue switched last month from an award chart based program to a calculator based award chart. They also killed the ability to book travel to Israel with promo awards.
Luckily they have restored that ability to their Promo Awards as of today.
This month you can book discounted travel from Houston or Washington DC to Europe, Russia, or Israel for half of the regular rate in economy. You can also book discounted travel from Montreal to Europe, Russia, or Israel for half of the regular rate in premium economy.
Travel is valid from 8/30-10/30.
Sadly, Air France has removed their flexible award calendar so you need to search every individual day to find the lowest rates.
You can book travel and search for award space on AirFrance.com after logging into a Flying Blue account.
You can book one-way travel for half of the miles listed below.
