You can convert 4,000 Flying Blue miles to 1,000 Le Club AccorHotels points or 2,000 Le Club AccorHotels points to 1,000 Flying Blue miles.

Conclusion

Hyatt has a partnership with American Airlines and United with Marriott. Both of theM offer reciprocal elite benefits for top tier members. Accor’s partnership with Air France-KLM has none.

It is good to earn some bonus miles and points for Accor stays and Air France-KLM flights. This won’t make me, however, to use service of these companies more that is likely the intended purpose.
