The following AY short and middle haul flights are currently operated by widebodies:
AY1331/1332 HEL-LHR-HEL, A359, D
AY1337/1338 HEL-LHR-HEL, A333, D

AY1541/1542 HEL-BRU-HEL A359/A333 3 6

AY1961/1962 HEL-DXB-HEL, A359, 5(starting from 01NOV19) 7(starting from 17NOV19) until 17APR20
AY1961/1962 HEL-DXB-HEL, A359, 57, starting 30OCT20

As a rule, service will be the usual AY shorthaul concept both in Y and J, with the exception of IFE (available free of charge to all, with cheap in-ear headphones provided in J and Y) and internet (longhaul rules apply, ie Plats get free wifi for the duration of the flight, Golds and J get one hour). Y+ seats are sold as extra legroom seats with no special service, but cannot be chosen free of charge unless you're Plat or Lumo.

DXB is an exception, see https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/finn...dubai-dxb.html for details.

Historical service:
AY1671/1672 HEL-AGP-HEL, A330, 57, 05DEC18-06JAN19 & 17FEB19-29MAR19
AY1961/1962 HEL-DXB-HEL, A350, 57, until 29MAR19
AY1541/1542 HEL-BRU-HEL A330, 3 6(until 04MAY19)

I think neither A321 nor the current A333 makes a great Xmas present. I just wrote Santa I want the A333 cabins refurbished quick.

AGP on 330, only 15FEB2020 and 22FEB2020.
Daytime flights and prices are through the roof due to Finnish winter break holidays (aka. hiihtoloma).

OTOH, J-class return on Business Saver is only 499€ where Y-class return is ~400€.
A no-brainer if you really need to be in AGP during that time, also award and U availability seems to exit.

Kittilä, the hidden gem of Finnish villages... So if I'm reading this right there are around 5 000 inhabintants and an international airport. Will you write us a transfer guide and a lounge report from this important hub

Apart from HEL, KTT also has more international AY flights than any other domestic airport.

I can share my transfer guide and lounge report as a picture taken last February. Yes, I was all alone there for 2 hours, in the middle of busiest skiing holiday week of Finland.

A bus (8€) goes to Levi village after flights. Tunturilinjat - Levi Lentokenttäbussi Saapuvat Lennot

I recommend eating at niliporo. Reindeer meatballs were amazing.

And the taxi drivers are cowboys ripping you off there. Thanks to our stupid new taxi law.
