14000 bonus miles + survey (2000 miles)

Air France wrote me today:

"To let you discover our new features and get even more pleasure from the, we would like to make a special offer to you and you alone"

6000 additional miles if you make one round-trip* between continental France and Europe )including North Africa)
8000 additional miles if you make one round trip* between continental France and the rest of the world

These offers apply, regardless of your booking class, to your newxt round-trip flight with Air France, between April 15 and September 15 2001**

* or two direct flights
** offers may be combined; each valid one time only

Wow! I am impressed.
Question is - means "may be combined" that I will I get 6000+8000 extra miles for (example) Helsinki-New York-Helsinki round trip? (flights via Paris)
May this bonus be combined with current HEL/STO/GOT-CDG double miles bonus?


In envelope was also questionnaire (6 pages) for 2000 bonus miles.

For the forst question it seems to me that yes, it could.
For the second, I would say no.

It seems that Air France take care about some customers. I send letters and letters, but never got a questionnaire.This would probably help you to like Air France more than I do.

Felis, thank you for answer. I am seriously considering going to NYC with AF now (have not been in NYC 2 years). 22244 miles for flying STO-NYC-STO or 22694 for HEL-NYC-HEL - thats as good as it gets I think. HEL-NYC-HEL fares start from 384 USD+tax and from Stockholm from 332 USD+tax.

BlondeBomber, yes, "offers apply regardless of booking class". But it may be a targeted offer, lets say, to very infrequent frequent flyers like me . In letter was stated: "special offer /---/ to you and you alone". Dont know what that means in reality.

No, only remark "to ensure that miles are automatically credited to account, remember to give Frequent Plus Card number each time you make reservation". Number combinations 8/6961, IEUR/01/A, 21152AF/A/IEUR/01 6961 are
withaout explanation also printed to mailing - maybe one of them is promotion code.

You're correct Fokker50, this is a targeted offer, what they call "Marketing Relationship".
Frequent flyers get regular offers.
Unfrequent flyers get attractive offers to ensure their loyalty.

BTW I think this promotion may be combined with the double miles offer.
Just call Frequence Plus (the Swedish number) to double check... and enjoy your trip!

I also got this letter in the mail last week. I am not sure why I got one since I have never been on a AF flight and I have no miles on my card yet. I completed the survey in a few minutes and will send it in. The question is what do you do with 2000 miles?

A think there is an upgrade inside Europe for 5000, but to be verified.

I also received a survey to fill, I think because I was "Frequence Plus Rouge" until march 31. (now, I am a basic member, because I have ZERO flights with AF in 2000 , my account has still > 100,000 unused miles).

2,000 miles for the survey but ...
only 5,000 (intra-Europe) + 7,000 (transcont.) .
