Aurinkomatkat package with AY scheduled flights

Has anyone here booked Aurinkomatkat packages? What's the AY booking code and mileage accrual for AY scheduled flights, if you:
1) book a regular charter package, ie flights and hotel
2) book a "flights only" package, ie only flights, but set dates as in 7/14 nights
3) book a last minute flight+hotel charter package

The only thing I remember having read here at FT is that if you book #1 and pay Aurinkomatkat for a confirmed cash upgrade, you will be reticketed in I and earn points accordingly (200 %). I suppose this applies to last minute bookings as well.

Yeah, airfare&room combos earn probably more via Finnair Holidays at 3 points per € than Aurinkomatkat. I guess F.H. books into some special fare rule that otherwise earns 0%.

That said, I've not used either ever. Especially A.M. does not much catter to foreigners and singles.

Looks good. And this provides actual J class tier points, not just some award points based on cost of the package, right?

Good point and that should be confirmed by AM. They promise 200% and 100% and it makes suspicious

According to T&Cs here https://www.aurinkomatkat.fi/matkaeh...air-plus-ehdot it indeed looks like one would also get the tier&award points for the flights: "Matkan hintaan perustuvien Finnair Plus -palkintopisteiden lisäksi Finnair Plus -jäsenille kertyy Finnairin myöntämiä lentoihin perustuvia palkinto- ja tasopisteitä Finnair Plus -sääntöjen mukaisesti. Näiden Finnairin palkinto- ja tasopisteiden kerryttämiseksi tulee Finnair Plus -kortin numero ilmoittaa lentoyhtiölle viimeistään lähtöselvityksen yhteydessä."

If I've understood correctly, all scheduled flights earn regular AY+ points and in addition to this Aurinkomatkat packages earn points on some basis (but maybe no tier points for the package?). Do Aurinkomatkat even have charter flights anymore?
