About AirFrance/KLM FlyingBlue
Flying Blue is the frequent flyer program for a number of carriers: Air France, KLM, Aircalin, Kenya Airways, TAROM and Transavia. While none of these airlines have a huge presence in the United States, American travelers can still earn and use Flying Blue miles via SkyTeam partners. With that in mind, this loyalty program could be a solid travel tool to have in your arsenal.

American Express is also offering other transfer bonuses to other airline mileage programs. This one seems to be one of the better transfer bonus rates.
