680 I think, before the price becomes more expensive.

I hope not, as Iím still pondering it for next July-AugustÖ In fairness, even £1300 would be a reasonable price for 680TP and a double HEL-shuffle!

Hi Palty. I think you have asked this before a few times - which is perfectly fine of course and no problem you doing that. I think as has been noted this ARN-MIA fare really has a max of 680 TPs, I canít see how you could get more unfortunately.

Have you read through the posts in the earning points sticky and the Tp run thread? They will give you a great understanding of what flights earn what TPs and youíll soon be adding it all up yourself
