XP Run: LCY to JFK via AMS/BRU or DUB from 1134!

This fare is not for most people but it works great for those chasing status with Air France/KLMs Flying Blue program as it gives 108 XPs enough for Silver status and for Delta flyers it gives you over 3500 MQDs, with that said it is an insane routing and a clear example of how you can build in segments to chase status.

Source: My site PremiumCabinDeals

LCY-AMS-BRU-JFK-DUB-AMS-LCY nominally gives you 7802 miles but with 500 minimum miles you would get 8846 miles.

Delta flyers would obtain 17692 RDMs , 13270 MQMs and 3538 MQDs

XP Count:
30 XPs each way for the short hops and 24 XPs for the TATL for a total of 108 XPs.

This is a scenic route from London to New York flight and then this "fare". The AMS-BRU segment at just 96/98 miles gives you 15 XPs which in the logic of Flying Blue is the same as a 2000 mile flight. So you can build these segments to your advantage!

Are you sure about the Delta earnings? I'm getting a very different number.

Especially interesting for those without ST status. Insideflyer.nl runs a promo that gives you FB Gold if you rack up 90XP in 90 days. Valid for Explorer level only.

Google translation of the rules: (your FB adress should be in the Netherlands)

You can participate in the Gold Challenge by first purchasing the InsideFlyer Premium Membership. Then, if you are not yet a member, you must register with Flying Blue. It is important to know that only new participants or existing Flying Blue Explorer participants can participate in the Gold Challenge. Participants with Flying Blue Elite status cannot participate. These participants can purchase the Premium Membership with the Hotels.com discount.

After you have purchased the Premium Membership you can start the Gold Challenge. To participate, you must be at least 18 years old and your home address in the Netherlands must be registered in your Flying Blue account. You must achieve at least 90 XP in one connected 90-day period. You can check and track this manually via your online Flying Blue account. Only flights flown after purchasing the package are eligible and the last flight must be made by December 31, 2019. Have you met these requirements? Then you can communicate this via an online form. Within 4 weeks after submitting the online form, your status will be upgraded to Flying Blue Gold. Until then, you cannot take advantage of the benefits. The Flying Blue Gold status is valid for one year, after which you can re-qualify. With the upgrade, your XP balance will be set to 0, even if you have earned or have flown more than 90 XP since you submitted the completion. So you cannot take any remaining XP with you.

Not sure how they would check if your "Dutch" address is valid though. Happy to help with that if anyone needs a hand.
