Green "Lowest Fare" option is not the lowest offered

Can someone help me to understand why the "Lowest Fare" picked out in green is nearly double the miles of another (better) option on the list. What's the catch?


The green fare is not the lowest one listed.

Were you on the KLM website? Usually the “lowest fare” wobbler shows only on flights marketed on the airline of the website you are on.

No, I was on the AirFrance website. Interestingly, I get an error when I try to book. It lets me get as far as entering passenger information, and then it return and error, saying "something went wrong".

UPDATE: I called the service line, and to my great surprise, they were able to book the same itinerary for an even better deal. I was afraid that they would tell me that the 70k offer was invalid...and they sort of did, except the valid amount was 50k!

This turned out to be a great experience and has me contemplating a switch over to AirFrance as my regular carrier.
