I have 22,500 miles on the Flying Blue airmiles programme, and they need to be spent by April or they will expire. It turns out that 20,000 is enough for a round trip flight within the UK and also between the UK and any of the following: Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, Switzerland. Now, let's say I could get an award flight. I would have to go sans the boy, as Gary won't fly and there aren't enough miles for him anyway. This means it would probably just be a wee weekend jaunt by myself (unless anyone cares to join me!). The biggest limitation is that I have to fly a SkyTeam airline, and from either Edinburgh or Glasgow that means AirFrance to Paris or KLM to Amsterdam. Now, I find myself quite fancying a weekend trip to Paris, especially if the transport is free, and it would then just be a matter of a place to stay (*bats eyelashes at [livejournal.com profile] sidoo*) and the cost of food, activities and getting to and from airports. I should be able to just about afford that.

The other options for the miles are less useful. If I take a paid flight by September on KLM or AirFrance they don't expire, but I have no intention of doing that. I can also donate my miles to charity. I don't have enough miles to use them for any other rewards options like hotel stays and such, so really it's between taking a trip and donating them. That's my dilemma. Any thoughts?

Edit: Tickets booked! Yay!
