Low Level Award Search? How?

Is there a way to search low level KLM awards? They iused to have a calender based search but now it seems you can only search one day at a time?
Any ideas/

There is no such thing as "low level" awards.

All seats can now be booked using miles, but as with cash fares, the amounts required rapidly increase as the plane fills.

That the calendar went from a monthly overview to a daily search has been commented at length on these threads.

I appreciate that you clearly are a KLM/Flying Blue novice, but it makes life easier for everyone if, before plunging in with a question, you get a feel for the thread and read through the posts.

So in short - you answered your own question. You have to search day by day.

Are there any services, eg ExpertFlyer, to tap into this? Everybody wants a monthly overview with prices per mile, but the FB website does not offer that any more. I don't know if the miles-required are published on a GDS (probably not), but maybe they have other tricks to get to that information...and display it in a better way than the FB site currently does.

Thanks. Sorry about that. Also the terminology.

You can use the 30-day [Power Search] function in the KVS Tool to locate AF/KL Award Availability at the Standard (lowest) level.

Monthly search is back on the award booking site of KL/AF - click the box 'around these dates'. Doesn't work perfect though - I sometimes get lower or higher mile costs when you select the specific flight date as in the monthly overview

Indeed back on the PC-version of the website, but not for those using the KLM or AF phone/tablet app. Wouldn't surprise me to see it back soon though, also there.
