XP Run: BCN/BIO/MAD to Oslo (TRF) 90 XPs from 505!

Over the cost of a weekend and from 505 you can accumulate up-to 90 XPs which works great for those chasing status with Air France/KLMs Flying Blue program as you accumulate almost enough XPs for Silver status over just one weekend and spending time exploring cities across Europe. Source: My site PremiumCabinDeals

How to book this fare?
A) Search ITA Matrix
B) Input dates via Multi-City into your favorite online travel agent
C) If that doesn't work, copy and paste the ITA Matrix data into BookWithMatrix.
D) Prep yourself for a day or night near Oslo!

You keep posting variations of the same XP run under separate threads. Yes, you can get intra-European AF XP runs to various KL-only destinations in Northern Europe for circa €500, give or take €100. You could also BGO, KRS, VXO, etc.. as start or end point and most destinations served by AF in Europe at the other end.

It would be helpful to keep them under the same thread instead of spawning duplicates of virtually the same offer.

Thanks for the tips on the other cities... Only had seen BGO and BLL but not the other ones... There are many posts on FT that are similar, last time I published a XP Run was over a week ago and in during that period have shared plenty of other deals.

I think they're useful too, but they're similar in a way that they're all leaving on Saturday, returning on Sunday. Have you found any similar fares for a 1 night stay on weekdays?

Plenty of longer stays and the fare works to several Norwegian destinations so ideal to mix MIleage Run and a vacation.

I picked one night and travel Saturday to Sunday for those interested in the Miles without Time Off work!

Okay, so you haven't found any 1-night stay fares for weekdays?

You won't find one. The fare rules specify that either a saturday night stay or a 3 days minimum stay is required:

Dusseldorf is the best option if based in AMS, 2 hour train ride and you can easily add long layovers so you aren't that long away from home...

These runs rack up some decent XP because they're not from Amsterdam. They have to go via a HUB, pref. 2 (AMS & CDG).

AMS-OSL would only give you 2*15XP, where as BIO-CDG-AMS-OSL gives you 3*2*15XP=90XP.
