Get A 25% Bonus When You Transfer AMEX Points Into Flying Blue Miles

Login to your account via the link above and the transfer ratio should say 1:1.25 through 4/29. The last transfer bonus from AMEX to Flying Blue was 25% from 5/1/18-6/15/18.

Flying Blue is the mileage program of Air France and KLM. They are both Skyteam Alliance members, as is Delta.

The nice thing about Flying Blue is that they consider Israel to be part of Europe. However they do charge fuel surcharges except for Delta flights.

Round-trip coach to Israel would require 40K AMEX points plus fuel surcharges with the 25% transfer bonus:

 

Round-trip business to Israel would require 84.8K AMEX points plus fuel surcharges:

 

Flying Blue does allow one-way redemptions for half the price, so 20K AMEX points would be enough for a one-way ticket between North America and Tel Aviv in coach and 42.4K would be enough in business class.

Flying Blue occasionally has useful Promo Awards that discount the miles required by 25-50% from rotating cities. Currently those are valid from Montreal and Toronto and they change each month.

Round-trip business to Israel would require 63.6K AMEX points plus fuel surcharges:

What’s their typical fuel surcharge for a round trip business redemption NYC-TLV?

Eli

Before you book on airfrance.us call them to make sure seats is actually available the sites not always up to date from experience,

R

Never had this issue

jeff

on delta flights the lowest they charge is 29k per direction

joe

@dan is it worth transferring without any specific plan in mind?

samuel l friedmann

what about going from the U.S. to Switzerland?

Yelped

Delta (skymiles) has sales many times for 32k RT.

Zeevi

Dan,

If i want to fly one way business to israel, is this a better option than doing the citi thankyou points to Quantas?

R

2 different options. If one doesn’t have Citi points — no way to get miles to Qantas.

LY is pricey/complicated if you don’t live in NY. If you have a direct LY option from a different city (MIA/LAX) it is more expensive…if you don’t you have to make your own connection.

AF doesn’t charge you more for a different city in the US

Meir

When do the points expire?

genius

Its also the cheapest mileage program to get to mexico from the usa or visa versa. Its 12,500 on delta or aeromexico, which would = to 10,000 amex points with the 25% bonus. You could see any destination milage amounts with all mileage programs for the entire world on http://www.awardhacker.com

Ahmad Ali

Is delta ever available nonstop in business class from Ny to Tel Aviv with flying blue or only through Europe?

R

NEVER. DL doesn’t offer any business class seats except at the massive screw you rate. AF cannot book those flights.

Decent availability on AF in business but they also have a “dynamic” pricing model – so 53K miles is the lowest, but often times it can be availability at the 60K or 65K level. A little weird

Hello Dan, Do you think this offer is the best way to use Amex Membership Rewards points to fly between NYC and Barcelona? I can’t find out a way to quote how many miles a flight is on KLM without first doing the transfer. If you don’t think it’s a smart move, do you have any recommendations on how to use the Membership Rewards for this route? Thank you!

Chesky

Idk if this will be seen, but idk what’s happening whenever I click on the link it has never log in and than when I log in, it just goes back to the login page. Also, whenever I try to go into the anex rewards portal, it says its temporarily down, for the past 5 days!! I would appreciate any help. Thanks
