Barely worth a mention on this thread but not too bad for something out of LHR that leaves at 10AM on a Saturday and gets back 9AM on a Sunday. This gets me well into Bronze for a few months, then upgraded a work trip LHR LAS LHR to WTP on a good deal with my own funds which tips the scales to Silver in April.

Not the most glamorous way to do it but practical - will try to use up the rest of my Priority Pass visits between now and then!
Could anyone sanity check that this equals 240 TP for me?

Itinerary is:

Sat 09 Jan 10:20LondonHeathrowTerminal 3 15:15 HelsinkiHelsinki VantaaTerminal 2
AY832 AY
Finnair
2:55 Business (I)

Sat 09 Jan 16:40HelsinkiHelsinki VantaaTerminal 2 17:15 OsloGardermoenTerminal

Sun 10 Jan 07:40HelsinkiHelsinki VantaaTerminal 2 09:00 LondonHeathrowTerminal 3
AY5905 BA
British Airways
3:20 Business (I)

I make it:

LHR HEL 80
HEL OSL 40
OSL HEL 40
HEL LHR 80

Total 240

The HEL OSL HEL flights are operated by Nordic Regional Airlines (I assume this is flybe nordics?) - They have an AY ticket number so I assume this doesn't affect TPs earned? Has anyone done I on this route? What's it like?
