Each month Air France KLM offers ‘promo awards’ discounted awards you can book from specific cities to anywhere in Europe over a close-in two month period. In May they launched special promo awards that lasted just three days rather than being available for a full month, and that were even cheaper with travel bookable between select cities and anywhere in Europe on either Air France or KLM.
It looks like we are getting new special promo awards on Tuesday. When you go to the website it says not available yet, but grayed out several deals are visible.

Often connecting itineraries beyond Paris/Amsterdam can be even cheaper than what’s advertised, and specific cities are put on sale because the flights are lightly booked so availability tends to be good. West Coast – Europe for just 36,000 miles each way in business class is fantastic. Come Tuesday we’ll see if some cities price even lower.
Indeed I usually look for business class deals, but this is even pretty cheap economy and premium economy too even when factoring in surcharges. American Express, Capital One, Chase, and Citibank all offer points transfers to Air France KLM Flying Blue, and transfers are generally immediate.
