Is it an unadvertised of the A350 that it can morph into a A321 ? Nice way to reduce fuel consumption when the load is low

Another thought - how about booking a return longhaul ex-ARN/CPH/OSL where either or both s/h segments are in J?

They are likely high profile marketing opportunities with the edge directed at SK.

They'd probably downgrade you and upgrade us at the gate.

Yes with Mr Miles millionaire onboard it surely will happen!

OK, I'm in 1A on AY668 CPH-HEL OCT 8.

Seat maps looks a bit strange - the aisle isn't drawn correctly.

So what's the vote for THE AY DO flight? BCN/Malaga for most bang for the buck?

And the question is, once booked a A350 flight, what is the probability of equipment/route swap and missint the right one?
