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:
Round-trip business to Israel would require 100K 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.
It’s worth noting that Flying Blue’s new calculator based award chart starts on 6/1 as they copy Delta in eliminating award charts. The calculator shows that saver coach tickets from JFK to Tel Aviv will remain 25K miles and that business class will actually go down from 62.5K miles to 53K miles each way.
Flying Blue occasionally has useful Promo Awards that discount the miles required by 25-50% from rotating cities, though there’s nothing useful available currently.
Bear in mind that Flying Blue miles expire after 24 months unless you credit a paid flight to Flying Blue, so don’t transfer miles over unless you have a specific redemption in mind.
AMEX cards that earn Membership Rewards points include:
