This could be a fantastic deal if you’ll be booking flights with Air France or KLM as it is a significant rebate if you’re able to meet the spend. This return will stack with your mileage earning from the flight itself, which could be decent when credited to either Flying Blue (which is doubling elite credit on paid flights this year) or to Delta. The deal could be sweetened even further if you’re booking flights and applying Delta Global Upgrade Certificates — paying for economy class and upgrading to business and getting a better in-flight experience on top of everything else.
The 20K points from this offer would often be enough to cover an economy class ticket to Europe through Flying Blue Promo Rewards or they could even get you a domestic round trip flight depending on which Membership Rewards sweet spots you utilize.
If you are able to book or upgrade to business class, I have to say that I was particularly impressed with KLM’s new 787 business class. The seats were comfortable and while familiar they included some thoughtful touches that made it one of the better business class seats I’ve flown. From well-placed storage for your phone and easy-access international outlets to a nice privacy shield, it was really quite good.
And don’t forget that flying KLM you’ll also get a Delft blue house. When the couple seated to my left turned theirs down on the flight to the US, I very nearly asked them if I could have their selections, but I held off figuring that I need to collect them on my own. It’s a fun gimmick. Again, these are only available for business class passengers on intercontinental business class trips.
Overall, this offer is a solid deal that’s worth syncing up if you’ll be booking a qualifying itinerary this month.
