    Hi all,

    So here I am, looking at a trip from ATL to Milan in June. Prices are high, disgustingly so ($1'700 or so). You then look at the booking classes ... and these prices still only earn 25%

    Why would I do this, seriously?

    Book business class! Honestly, summer travel is often just a few dollars more in C

    I am indeed taking a look at business now! I'll see what's available.

    Thanks and cheers,

    I suggest ditching the use of the AF-KL program for situations like this. Even when going for a business/first class purchase, I would primarily consider using other airline programs to credit such flights.

    I tend to use *A miles when I need to fly peak summer season to Europe ... or Delta if I know ahead of time, e.g. this July for 100k Miles + $69 not a bad deal at all!
