If you haven't been greeted already, let me be the first to welcome you into March. The first of the month is more than a page turner in travel land; it marks a new set of deals and destinations for some of the best values in points and miles, discounted "free flights" on Air France, KLM and Lufthansa, requiring as little as half the usual miles needed for flights all around the world...
Lufthansa is the most overlooked program for promotional mileage "free flight" rates. They regularly halve the number of miles required for business class all around the world, requiring just 55,000 miles for round trip business. Full details HERE. Highlights include...

All of these awards are bookable in either direction and can be booked one way. It's a wonderful opportunity to turn a relatively small stack of miles into a great trip. With most promo awards, reservations are final so make sure you lock in dates you know you can take before booking. Happy travels.
