Within the last couple of days, word has been developing on a FlyerTalk thread that Air France/KLM is moving to a revenue-based earning system in 2018.
If you try to book a ticket from May 1, 2018 onward, a message will appear: “your flight is in 2018, discover Flying Blue new programme rules.” Starting on that date, mileage earning with Flying Blue will be based on your status level and how much you spend, similar to what United, Delta, and American have already introduced:
- No status: 4 miles per Euro
- Silver: 6 miles per Euro
- Gold: 7 miles per Euro
- Platinum: 8 miles per Euro
