Those who can get to Billund and Copenhagen easily will be able to fly to North America in SkyTeam’s business class for prices starting at only €1,314. Possible destinations include Vancouver, Los Angeles, and Miami. But not only can you fly to mainstream destinations, but also to many lesser-common destinations, such as Jackson (Yellowstone) or Victoria (Vancouver Island).
Sadly, the USA and Canada still have a travel ban. It is unclear when it will be lifted. Air France and KLM will let you cancel all tickets for trips before December 2021 for free. You’d receive a voucher, which can be fully refunded. You can read more about this here.

Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?
More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are two main reasons for that:
Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airline has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.
If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward information like flight changes instead of receiving them directly from the airline. In many cases, you may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem-solving.
This especially applies to premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.
Baggage and Other Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are industry standard by now. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.
This also applies to other things like food services, insurances or priority treatment. In almost all cases, you pay less for additional amenities when booking on the airlines’ website.
The tickets are issued in booking classes J and Z. At Flying Blue, you’d get 4 to 6 miles per Euro. Other programs will usually credit you 200% of the distance for these transatlantic flights. To give you an example, flying to Vancouver via Amsterdam with KLM, you’d get:
