(EXPIRED) 16k Economy Flights To Europe, Plus 25% Off Premium Economy & Business Class [October 2019 Flying Blue Promo Rewards]

The October 2019 Flying Blue Promo Rewards are out, good for travel from November 30 to January 30, and this time Boston, Chicago & Washington D.C. make the list with economy class seats discounted by 25%, premium economy from Chicago discounted by 25% and business class seats from Montreal, Edmonton & Calgary also discounted by 25%.

Of course, nobody knows exactly what that means since pricing is so variable, but thus far I’ve found economy class flights from 16,125 miles one-way in economy, but the fairly high taxes and fees mean this isn’t an amazing deal.

Quick Thoughts

As is usually the case, you’ll actually get a better deal if you connect beyond Flying Blue hubs in Paris and Amsterdam. As a baseline example, here is Washington D.C. to Paris in November. More than 20,000 miles + $83 in taxes and fees is better than normal, but not amazing.

It’s slightly better to other cities though, such as Washington D.C. to Dublin. Just over 16,000 miles is better, but fees of ~$100 make this less enticing.

Seeing as all the discounts for Economy, Premium Economy and Business Class are only 25%, I wasn’t able to find any deals that were particularly notable. These might still be your cheapest option though if you’re flying from one of the participating cities.

Be sure to check paid flights though, particularly if you’re happy flying to Europe in Economy. For example, you can get round trip flights from Boston to London over Thanksgiving for less than $360 on both Virgin Atlantic and British Airways.

Boston to London November 2019

With taxes and fees for round trip flights booked through Flying Blue costing a similar amount before even taking into account the miles redemption, paying for the flights and earning miles could be a better choice.
