Award seats on Finnair Leisure?

Hi all

a quick question - I am planning an oneworld award itinerary with my Qantas FF points. I was hoping to do the HEL-DXB sector which is operated by Finnair leisure. Do these sectors offer award seat availability to oneworld airlines?

Thanks in advance

Finnair doesn't allow award redemption for it's leisure flights (AY1001 - 2999) for it's own Finnair Plus members so must be the same for other OneWorld airlines.

No way, like Harri said. Basically, you'd need to route yourself to Dubai either from LHR or HKG.

Thanks for the info.

I booked the trip last night. I'm quite pleased with my 17 sectors, including travel on all but 2 OW airlines (AY, IB). I used BA to DXB - availability was a little tight (as it was DXB-HKG on CX) but we managed to massage the dates to make it work.
