you can see just by the
discount this can be a very good offer if you get 50% off for Business

tickets! All other North American cities see 25% off in business class while Montreal
also get 25% off economy class.

Here’s what a round trip on the above route looks like:

Not bad at all – 60,500 miles and $631.73 in fees and taxes for business
class. Under the old promo awards this flight would have been 62,500
miles plus the same fees. Yes the fees are on the high side but most
other programs who may have lower fees would be costing you at least 50%
more miles.

But there are better opportunities for less miles for the business class offer from Vancouver:

 That’s right only 53,000 miles and $677.83 for a round trip flight to
Europe in Business Class. Can’t get better than that unless you can find
another city in Europe that may actually price lower (but we all know
Flying Blue’s system is really fun to deal with!)

Some other cities we have found at the 53,000 level. Remember as well you can book one ways for half this amount – 26,500 miles!

Here are some economy class options from Montreal:

There are many other possible options to check out if this works for you
and if you don’t have enough miles for a Promo Reward your best bet
is to convert Marriott Rewards points to
Flying Blue on a 3:1 basis. Remember you’ll earn 5,000 bonus miles when
you convert 60,000 points at a time (a total of 25,000 miles per 60,000
points) That means 120,000 points will get you to 50,000 miles – you
could always transfer the small amount more to get to 53,000 for those
round trips.
