AF La Premiere Award Availability
I was doing a search for AF business class awards and noticed that La Premiere was showing as available for some half decent prices (200k o/w to Europe, which was less than business class on some days). I know this was previously restricted to only elite members, has that changed? I never saw these options displayed when searching before while logged in to my account.
I dont believe that has changed. Might be a glitch. Try booking and see how far you can get without actually ticketing something?
I had a similar thought last week when looking at af redemptions. Saw quite a few 200k la premier redemptions. Stilll a LOT to pay for a short transatlantic Flight.
I also noticed that AF charges less for rewards with airport changes etc. pretty smart. They also discount the hell out of their own a380 business class fare compared to 777.
I wonder if the la premier awards are for the a380 which looks pretty average for first.
I think they were always available for “exorbitant” rates
