For KLM flights, I would suggest first checking http://usr.v7.com/wpaa/ to identify KLM flights with award seats available. Then contact GlobalPass and request the available dates/flights and wait..... they will try to confirm the flights, and when you contact them again, they will make arrangements for payment of taxes and for ticket delivery.

Don't hold your breath though - in spite of spending hours trying to find the available seats on the site Viajero Joven suggests, I have never managed to get KLM seats out of GlobalPass - partly because GP didn't act on requests, partly because KLM didn't respond timely to GP (allegedly) and GP can't 'force' them to respond more quicker.
Good luck!

Absolutely right!!!!!!!!!!!! The site shows NIL availability for the rest of 2004 on practically all popoular routes.

KLM impossible?

I followed the award seat link and found business class seats to Amsterdam. After calling Globalpass they called a week later to say there was no availability. I was on the phone with her and there were still award seats showing for my dates. She said she'd retry. I got a call the next week to say there were no award seats.

I'm pretty much resolved to the one TACA flight to SJO as the only way to use my miles.
