The “big three” of Skyteam Europe, that is Delta, KLM & AF are a strange group. Delta has their way, and KLM & AF are partners but each like their own toys and ways
Anyway, my Flying Blue “newsletter” arrived the other day and it was more a book than a newsletter. I have read college cliff notes shorter than this puppy.
I thumbed through it and was not really all that impressed other than the update to the bag policy on European flights. This is nothing new as we have seen this change already announced on the web. But, it is a good reminder of why we, as Delta flyers, should all have a free IVORY Flying Blue account. If we ever have to fly on KLM and do not have any status with Delta, then we can at least get one bag for free (we all know with Delta you need to have a GOLD or PLATINUM or RESERVE AMEX card to get a free bag over here unless you are medallion).
Another reason to have an account with KLM that I have blogged about before is the fact that KLM “IT” often will end up awarding you points for KLM flights if you have put in your Flying Blue number on a Delta Skymiles award reservation (business class award that is). Not always, but free points are free points when they are willing to give them to you right? Just a few helpful points & tips today to get more value along the way – René
