Great uses of Air France/KLM Flying Blue Miles

The business class of Air France.

Redemption miles for Air France business class is a wonderful use. A couple hundred dollars in taxes and fees will also apply, but normal rates start at 53k miles.

Virgin Atlantic Upper Class

It's a great way to fly on a super cool product and pay less taxes and fees than Virgin Atlantic does.

The business class of the airline.

Keep an eye out for the reverse herringbone 1-2-1 configuration of the 787-9 because it's one of the best business class planes on the market. I haven't been lucky enough to fly it yet but I have flown it in a mini cabin and was pleasantly surprised. It was a pleasure to hop from Singapore to Indonesia.
