Tips for finding Flying Blue Flight Rewards

On the Air France KLM website, there is a tip you need to know to run a 30-day search using your Flying Blue Miles.

Instead of doing a one-way search as you would typically do when searching for a flight reward, search for a round-trip flight. By indicating the same date for the outbound and inbound flights.
