The Air France-KLM card offers the competitive rate of three Miles per dollar spent not only with Air France or KLM but with any of the SkyTeam partners. I’m unaware of any cards that offer miles on partner airlines, so this is pretty awesome. Additionally, the 60 XP brings cardholders 60 percent of the way to achieving Silver status, this is also an awesome perk. But, let’s not forget the fact that you can do better on airfare purchases using premium cards with airfare bonuses that allow points transfers. Last, one thing that seems to be missing from card benefits is any type of baggage benefit or discount. Most airline branded cards with annual fees offer baggage perks.
