Very often there is a pair of HN's at HEL, might be due to e.g. increased risk level for breaches (for example when they know some neighboring countries are having larger exercises over Gulf of Finland etc.) or for preparation of some training session near the sea etc. and they bring the planes to HEL from TMP.
But as they regularly keep them at HEL, naturally pilots likely need also to practice landing to HEL on time to time so I'd say seeing HN at HEL is just normal occurrence, not necessary even requiring any specific reasons.

Or keep offering points or upgrades as options.

In socialism open gift card is followed by tax actions. At least half of Your money belongs to someone else.

Because there are not enough gates available at rush hour until the non-Schengen extension opens.

Water salute welcome to Helsinki on AY6 this morning. ”Just because”, according to the captain. Too bad I can’t upload the video.

Oh, great, we have a jetbridge here at FCO. Said no one ever.

I've flown to or from FCO five times now within the year, and all five flights have had stand arrivals/departures. Does AY ever use a jetbridge at FCO?

It looks like the re-cycling of fare buckets is going well...

Has Z been used for business class at some point?

Is TF really supposed to charge almost twice as much as AY for the same flights, or is that also an error caused by AY's fare class changes? The main difference between AY code and TF code is that a bag always is included if you choose TF code.

Actually, I think Z was last seen in a group of extremely low earners. Z W G 25% IIRC

Hmm? Z has been one of the cheapest regular Economy fare ever since the ticket types were introduced, AFAIR.

25% was for A (aggregator?), W (sale) and G (group?).
