Similar to the Lufthansa and LATAM deal from a few days ago but now you can a segment or two from other cities in Germany with Air France and KLM and earn some nice XPs in Business Class at an extremely affordable price...

​​​​​​How to find this deal?
A) Search Google Flights for availability Germany to Madrid under 200
B) Go to Expedia.de (Use Chrome for Auto translate)
C) Multi-City XXX-AMS, AMS-FRA, FRA-MAD same day.
D) This should offer 30 XP options and if you start the day early the FRA-AMS via CDG to collect the extra 15 XPs.
E) Collect 45 XPs and then enjoy the flight to Madrid with LATAM
F) If the links don't work, just search again, Expedia can be iffy with posted links..

Notes: Soon this route will be 4x instead of 6x a week, so no more weekend options....​​​

Hamburg to Madrid with 45 XPs and LATAM Business for 185

Hanover to Madrid with 30 XPs and LATAM Business for 158

You may also use Expedia from other countries.
I just found the Option 1 (HAM to MAD) on the uk site for 159.80 available on 28th July

Try ex Dusseldorf for 167, you can start flying at 12:25 so easy to position via Train , Bus or Plane and collect 30 XPs and LATAM Boeing 787 Business Class

Don't you need to get it ticketed with all KL codes? I searched Expedia and found the same flight on the 24th of June, only the Latam flight has a Latam flight code, which shouldn't earn FB miles right?

LATAM will not earn with AF/KL. This fare is similar to a LH/LA fare that now allows segments within Germany at almost no cost, the addition of AF/KL makes it super tempting for FlyingBlue collectors...

Correct, you will not earn FB miles with LATAM.
This is a good hop for those both on Flying Blue and Executive Club (or Marco Polo).

You could split up the trip, so that you have a night in Amsterdam. Wasn't able to build in multiple nights.

After lurking for ages around here, this was the first time I could actually replicate a fare deal, and it seems it is here to stay.
Thank you to the OP, and the person posting the DUS option. Thank you for making all this real, rather than just a theoretical option.

In the same vein, the best I could do up to now are the (probably common) J deals between OTP and various European cities, available on AF metal most of the year, for around EUR 405,- for 60XP which gives 6,75 EUR/XP (I feel this thread should have a running top of the best eur/xp challenge). The OPs post reaches 180/45 which means 4,11EUR/XP. That is a feat!

But this is a one way fare, right? What about getting back?
