May Promo's (Flying Blue 2014)

I'm getting curious about the next Promo's..the past month in April NO Asia and NO interesting EU routes..Very few Business Promo.

I'd imagine that in May Almaty, Moscow, some Asia (Fukuoka?) will appear on the list, 10000 the first one, possibly 20000 one way the second (all Economy).

Usually, the new Promo's are loaded on the website the 29th or 30th of the previous [email protected]:-)

Correction...no business promo's

There should be some in the May promo's, but wait...we never know when the next 'enhancements' are made and promo's will become 'the best way for last minute economy award travel'

Brunos, your right. This is the link in the flying blue newsletter that I received today, April 29, linking to the April promo’s. The timing doesn’t make any sense as according to the FB website new promo’s are posted on the first of each month. I’d rather would have received the newsletter on May 1 with a link to the new promo’s.

I think we can safely assume that promo awards in J are a thing of the past.

In line with the hints from the FFP Gajan gave us, things look better this month.

Quite a long list in business, even to Asia. Good.
If they did not offer promos in business during July-August, one would wonder when they would.

Good?!

Where are the deals "20000" Miles for Europe to Asia? They posted ONLY Business class..So disappointed again, specially seeing the interesting destinations like Riyadh in summer (average temperature: 42 C.).
Flying Blue today will load some more Promo's for May?

When we hail as good news a 50% promo rate of 100K miles for a Europe-Asia return, you know that something is deeply, deeply wrong with the scheme.

By way of comparison, you can get a normal award in F between Europe on oneworld airlines, such as CX, and without YQ using USAirways miles. Now, which one shall I go for? A normal award return in F on CX and no YQ to pay or a "promo" award return on AF in C with YQ to pay? tough decision...

Admittedly, the US Airways scheme is generous for Europeans compared to most FFPs and it is likely to disappear soon to be subsumed into the AA one. However, if US is at one end of the spectrum, FB is at the other...
