I did it! I did it! At first I only booked 3 business class tickets. Nancy and 2 of our other kids had varying schedules which prevented them to fly withs us. Obviously, I was thrilled about the booking, yet at the same time, I had more work to do to try and get the other 3 member of the family to fly biz on another day. I searched more and more, and couldn’t find biz class seats that would work with our points budget.
Flexibility is key
More work to do
Air France customer service
80,000 points each way + $208 fees
480,000 for 6 passengers + $1,252 fees
$23,738 for all 6 of us
I spent less than 480,000 points
80,000 -16,000 (25% bonus) = 64.000 pp
64,000 pp x 6 = 384,000 transferred from Chase to Flying Blue
Savings – 96,000 points – thanks to Bonus Transfers
How quick was the transfer from Chase to Flying Blue
I N S T A N T (in the blink of an eye)
Which card did Jason use to pay the fees
Chase Sapphire Preferred – excellent travel protection benefits
What about our flights back
Still TBD…..working on that, too. For now, may I at least celebrate this?
Where are we staying
Hyatt, of course….HAHAHAHAA….yet TBD. We have Marriott 50K certs to use, and IHG….the world is our oyster!
