Double XP and Miles for 2020

Hey,

Was just trying to book some flights in October, and notice there is a probably new promotion (but I haven't see any official annoucement). So for all flights till the end of 2020, we will receive double XP and double miles. Does anyone know it?

I rearched a ticket from CDG to BOD on 11/07, Class ECO = 2XP, BIZ = 6XP. No difference.

BUT, the same flight for 14/10, ECO = 4XP and BIZ = 12XP.

wow~

That certainly seems to be true in a couple of dummy bookings on AF - double XP for December, back to normal in Jan.

It would be perfect if the promo could include existing bookings as well...

They announced yesterday that BlueBiz credits would be doubled for end-of-year flights.
Who knows, maybe they are considering the same for miles/XP?

Yes, it does include existing bookings! I booked one of my flight in early Jan this year, and it now shows double XP and miles in APP.

I booked a r/t ticket CDG-xxx for end of July a few days ago and KL website indeed shows double XP!

I would wait for official confirmation though, I am slightly unconfident with AFKL IT departement.

One BCN-BLL or MIL-BLL for less than €450 in J would get you 180xp in one go over the week end...

I am hoping that they were trialling the changes ahead of an announcement. We have at least given them some positive feedback in this thread: I was going to book a couple of 180XP weekend runs to keep me on track for PFL...
