Use Flying Blue miles or Norwegian
I read your site every day and this is my first post.
My wife and I are returning from Paris in mid June and currently have Delta business seats from Paris to SFO (via LAX), costing 144,000 Flying Blue miles and around $500 cash (altogether). I’m thinking it would be better to put the miles back into my account and use them for Flying Blue promotions and discounts, opting to fly Norwegian Premium from Paris to Oakland. The net cost would be around $800 per person (after deducting the refund from canceling the award flight). IS this a good way to think about it?
