A quick search of Air France’s US website ( and I was able to locate two Business Class seats at the low award level. Delta members know they can reserve these seats for 150,000 Delta SkyMiles a piece.


You can reserve the same exact flight for only 120,000 American Express Membership Rewards points plus $262.70 in taxes and fees.


And for those of you interested in a return flight, you can book the Air Tahiti return flight on June 18 which is showing 2 available Business Class seats.


Bottom Line

Air France Business Class award seats to French Polynesia exist. It only took me 1 search on Air France’s US site to find this availability. This is all publicly available information and does not require a membership to Expert Flyer to find.

  1. how is paying 150000 miles in business class for an 8 hour (one way) be a good deal?

  2. i know this is round trip. isnt it better to use it to Asia for 120K. longer flight etc. 8 hours in J for 150K miles is expensive no matter how nice the destination is.

    I have no problem with 120K miles in J to MRU or MLE. comparing to either MRU or MLE, is 150K miles for PPT (an 8 hour flight) from LAX really a great deal?

  3. Can you explain the Amex mr portion? How did Amex translate that particular flight to equal 120k mr? Or you suggesting a 1:1 transfer to air France to make this redemption?

  4. @alan – Well, please tell us how else you get there direct besides TN? Why is 120K to Asia better when you can go on OW or *A carriers very easily given all those options? the post highlights the fact that there is some availability to this difficult to get to location. Your posts compares apples to oranges and really makes little sense…

  5. what makes the amex biz a more favorable rate? is this the case with other airline partners?

  6. Hi Al – Yes, you’d have to transfer Amex points to Flying Blue to redeem for the 120k Business Class seat. The difference in mile to $ value is valuing the extra miles at $0.008 per mile.

  7. Hi Alan – In my opinion, the fact that the flight is only 8 hours doesn’t matter as much as being able to get to the destination all on points or miles. It really depends on the personal preference of each person where they’d like to redeem their miles.

  8. So how is it that you see this but i am not.
    I get this everytime i look
    There is no seat available in Business for your request; we propose WMINI

  9. Hi Derick – Delta has an option to select “I am traveling” which accounts for status of the person requesting the redemption. I am Platinum status, so that may have something to do with it. Do you have any status with Delta?

  10. no i live in the NW so delta is scarce. Even on the delta site there is never avail. Im sure it has to do with status

  11. one way japan to tahiti is 20k ua miles in business. i did use ba miles to get to ppt from ipc 12.5k in y. and then 20k ua miles to nrt in j.

  12. my point is that 150K is a lot of miles. you say that as long as it is on points and miles, it is good? how about 1000 USD? how much miles is always into the valuation of whether it is a good deal or not. If i have DL miles (which I do, as a delta plat and over 400K DL miles). i would much prefer to use it for MRU or MLE as you said in other post. comparatively speaking, it is not a better deal. of course, i agree that it is subjective. Given the fact that it is widely agree that DL miles is worth less than AA/UA, but it costs the same number of miles in J to Asia, wouldnt it make more sense to use DL miles for Asia?

    i did JFK – SLC (stop) – IPC for 40K BA miles in J(LAN old BA chart). IPC – PPT in Y for 12.5 BA miles.
    PPT – AKL – NRT in J for 20K UA miles.
    NRT – BOS (stop) – MIA – MBJ in J on 50K AA miles.

  13. I booked this trip on AF using Delta miles (low level) in business (travelled Nov. 2012). I flew from MSP-LAX-PPT (then took AIr Tahiti onto to BOB). How you use your miles is always somewhat relative, but from my own personal experience, this was a great trip. I felt it was a good use of miles to be able to take a very expensive trip spending very little “actual” money. We also stayed at the Bora Bora and Moorea Hilton’s, all on points (pre-devaluation). I have also used Delta to travel to Asia (Korea and China). Three business seat for low level redemption on KE and CZ. This was also a great trip and another valuable redemption. It’s all about perspective.
