AF/KL award space through KE

AF/KL award space through KE

  1. Mitch

    I’m looking at booking one of the 80K SkyPass business class awards from North America to Europe. Trying to do IAD-WAW, so AF, KL, and SU all offer one-stop options. I’m finding more AF/KL space when I search through FlyingBlue than using the DL or AS award searches. Does this mean the AF/KL space I’m finding is only available if using FlyingBlue miles, or would that space be available through KE as well? Trying to avoid using SU on the outbound…

    Welcome [USER=974]@Mitch[/USER] – yes, there’s a very good chance that the extra availability you’re seeing on the AF site means they have seats only open for their own members.

    Thanks, that’s what I feared. On the other hand, flying SU could be an interesting adventure. It does seem that KE awards can be pretty freely changed like AA awards, so maybe I’ll book SU and then keep an eye for AF or KL space opening up.

    [USER=974]@Mitch[/USER] that is a great option. KE is even better than AA because there are no cancelation or redeposit fees.
