How many miles for an award ticket from CDG to TNR/MRU/RUN ?

I am confused. On Air France www.airfrance.fr

Eco : 60,000
Biz : 120,000 (That's a lot !)
First : 150,000

While on www.klm.fr, the miles finder display

Eco : 70,000
Biz : 110,000
First : 140,000

I tried booking on www.klm.fr, but I was not allowed to do, probably because I was a Frequence Plus member

Has anyone tried to book these destinations ?

I think AF website shows the real amount of miles required. Usually Business class costs 2x eco miles...

P is not sold on RUN. And AF planes flying to MRU no longer have P seats. In that case, you have to fly Air Mauritius (A340) if you want an P award or a paid ticket.
The same with TNR : only J and Y.

Sorry, but I can't agree...
Usually, Business class is (more or less) 1,5 x eco miles,
and First class is 2x eco miles:

from France to US: eco 50k / biz 80k / first 100k
asia: eco 80k / biz 120k/ first 160k
africa: eco 70k / biz 110k/ first 140k
pacific1: 80k 120k 160k
pacific 2 100k 150k 200k .... and others...

BUT, you are right, for some destinations (central america, AND CIO ie RUN, MRU and TNR and others destinations in carribean) the deal is not as good...

from France to CIO eco 60k / biz 120 k and first 150 k
for some destinations, you can book an "alizée" ticket (eco+... see this thread
http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=470795 ) for 80k miles.
not a good deal if you consider you can fly exactly the same distance for the same "price" in biz (SFO, LAX...) (but worst value for carribean destination)

The bad new is that P is not available on AF flight to RUN, MRU and TNR. As said by bodory, you can book a ticket on MK operated flight (for MRU...), but, be aware MK's first is not as good as the P product on AF flights (more or less a good J product,... for 150 k miles...). And MK operated is the unique solution if you don't wan't to wake up at 4.00 am for your return flight. The J product is not comparable with the AF (NEV) product, and....

The good new, is that all this destinations are operated with NEV by AF. (RUN and MRU with B 744, TNR with A 340 not absolutely certain about NEV or NEV evolution...).

It is quite impossible to book a biz award on RUN (just 17 seats on the jumbo), except for some RUN-ORY day flight. The availability on MRU is quite good, and for RUN in alizée class too.
