Do you plan to buy any of these miles speculatively? I wonder if it’d be possible to save money over a cash fare on Air France.
Hi Kiki, no, I’m not planning on buying any miles since I have large enough account balances and can transfer points into these accounts if I need more miles. It is definitely possible to save money on certain flights but buying miles, but you will need to do the math first to see if that works for your specific flight.
