SFO to BCN, FLR to SFO (UR points Flying Blue)

SFO to BCN, FLR to SFO (UR points Flying Blue)

  1. Woodrow

    Hello…
    I am looking at booking the titled itinerary using my UR points. When looking at the partners, Flying Blue seems to offer the best product for this route. Travel will commence in Aug/Sep 2017.

    When I first started looking at availability, there was options on KLM 787-9 and AF 777-2, both with reverse herringbone for 62.5k ea. Now when I look, I only get AF 777-2 on the outbound and the A380 on the return. I do not want to fly AF A380 business.

    My questions are:

    Is this something that changes on a regular basis (daily, weekly, monthly)?

    Can I set up an alert for a certain plane?

    Is their another option that I am not considering (route, airline, product), that I should be?

    So…doing some further investigating, if I select only one passenger instead of two, the KLM options come back. Maybe I need to open a Flying Blue account for my wife as well, and process the tickets separately? Am I missing something?

    Opening an account for your wife won’t help you. What I’m guessing is that there is only one award seat available on KLM. Has nothing to do with having separate accounts.

    Woodrow, are you opposed to Star Alliance? You could transfer your Ultimate Rewards to United. 280,000 points and only $154 in taxes could get you there:

    I didn’t think about that option. It is 30k more miles, but significantly less taxes. As long as it is not on United metal, then I am not opposed to it. The only real “disadvantage” I see is that these are Vanatge seats, instead of reverse herringbone (which I’ve yet to experience). I flew the vantage seats on Jet Blue Mint and Aer Lingus.

    First world problems.
