Award Redemption KLM / AF miles usage help

    How far to get in C or F with 350`k miles and Skyteam from Europe?
    2 adults - (and maybe one infant)
    As per promo awards we can get where we want in C, however, as this will probably be once in our lifetime tirip we would like to enjoy first class travel far far away. Destination can be a city, beach or holiday resort.

    Any tips how to create the trip with transferring miles to other partners, finding the trips and more?

    Do you have elite status? Unfortunately AirFrance restricts first class awards to their own elite members. Would you settle for Business?

    Promo awards come out quarterly so I'd wait for a nice Caribbean destination as that would give you 8-9 hours or so in comfort

    Also, wherever you end up going, traveling on award tickets with an infant can turn out to be expensive. Though this post is a few years old (2014) if the baby must come with you, be aware of the costs involved. Here's what the charge for Air France was at the time the post was written:

    Air France/KLM
    SkyTeam
    • 10% of the adult revenue fare, plus taxes & fees
    • Any segments on partners must be booked through partners
    FlyingBlue will only issue infant tickets on their own metal

    So if your business class ticket would cost 2000 EUR, be prepared to pay 200 EUR for the child.
