Is there a typo on the marketing text as it says "seats are in economy class"?

And they call this an OFFER? If you check the UK site, they are currently offering 2000 points +559 GBP (about 693euro), Travel between: 05.12.2012 - 31.05.2013, 8 days left to book.

If u got no points, its 815 GBP.

This would have been great for miles to keep the status, but since this is basically a mileage ticket without any accrual, just BLAH...!

This is actually the best deal for a mileage run.

The offer from UK is with a connection, this is direct. If BA would offer a J ticket to China for a similar price then that would be a different story.

Finnair flight being cheaper from the UK than ex-HEL is hardly news, offers or otherwise. Just like BA flights are cheaper ex-HEL.

If 999€ for a direct J return is not an offer, then I don't know what is. It's not an MR, but great if you actually want to go where you are flying to.
