I have Amex Platinum points which I can transfer to Air France, but not Flying Blue. Will that work?

Moshe

The website is not working properly. You can’t book tickets and when calling in to book, not all flights are available. Make sure you can book your flights before transferring points.

El Capitan

Dan, do you have a TR you can direct us to for what the biz class experience is like on those airlines?

Saul

is there anything leaving from Miami?

ruchel

Logged in 9 pm NYC time october 20 to book a flight under the promotion and the website says that the promotion is over. The only thing I can think of is that they are using french time. As 9 pm NY october 20 is 4 am october 21 in france. I’ve tried to huca three times to no avail. Do I have any recourse?

Isaac

I had an issue with the reservation when I was trying to do the 8 seats to TLV and I received an error with no way to do any reservation. When I called AF they didn’t want to help me. I also sent in writing an email and they respond me that they cannot help me.

I complaint to the DOT because I received an Conf. number with a ref. number on Sunday and yesterday during the Yom Tov I received a response from AF see below :

Flying Blue:****
Ref.:******
Dear Mr ****,

Thank you for your e-mail of 19 October 2019.

I’d be happy to help you with your request and complete your reservation.

I have noted that your initial reservation: RC***Q had indeed experienced a web error, which was preventing its ticket issuance.

We have also noticed that since the Promo Reward booking priod has ended as of 21 October 2019, meaning you are no longer able to organize the flights with same price online, therefore it would cost the currently required amount of 50,000 Miles to issue the ticket.

However, as we have confirmed that your booking attempt was made on 16 October 2019 within the designated booking period, we would like to offer you an exception to issue the ticket for same itinerary with the initially quoted fare of 22,000 Miles and 218.18 USD tax per person for this time only.

We have prepared a new temporary booking: R8***Q for ticket issuance. As the flights can be kept secured until 23 October 2019, therefore should you wish to finalize this reservation, please call us on telephone number +1 800 375 8723 as soon as possible.

Please note that the ticket condition for Promo Reward ticket will be applied, therefore this ticket will be non-changeable and non-refundable.

We are deeply sorry for every inconvenience you had experienced, and we appreciate your understanding and cooperation for this instance.

I hope to hear from you soon!

Warm regards,

Yoko from your Flying Blue team

I already called them and did it.
