A while back I redeemed my Flying Blue miles for a flight on Continental from NY to Panama for my wife and I. KLM took 120,000 miles for the flight. I expect to pay taxes and airport fees in foreign countries, but not use miles and pay the full price of a ticket. So KLM took 60,000 miles per ticket and charged me 252.20 per ticket. I checked with Continental and the taxes were $72.20 per ticket for this flight. KLM/Air France are crooks. I tried fighting them and got no where. I am posting here to help fellow travelers and warn everyone of this criminal act. Stay away from KLM / Air France!
