Flying Blue, the loyalty programs of Air France, KLM, and related subsidiaries, is making changes to award redemptions starting June 1, 2018. In the past few days, we have noticed that Flying Blue has removed the ability to perform a “Flexible Dates” or calendar search for award availability. Without this feature, Flying Blue members are now forced to search day by day.
Interestingly, there is actually a trick by which you can still pull up the calendar search. You simply attempt to book a cash ticket on Air France’s website, and then hit the “See the fares in miles” button.
Note, you have to be logged into your Flying Blue account for this button to show up. That area will simply be empty if you are not logged in.
Of course, there is no way to tell how long Air France-KLM will keep this function alive, especially in light of impending changes to award redemptions. However, for those still hoping to use their Flying Blue miles before the June 1 deadline, this is a nifty trick that can save you a lot of time.
