Current and historical promotions

This is a thread for reporting details of promotions in the Finnair+ program.

The purpose of the wiki is to keep a repository of current and historical promotions. This works best if all details are given in a post of the thread. Once such a post is made, edit the wiki and add a short description of promo in headline-style, with a link to the post that holds the detailed information. (You can create such a link by right-clicking the post-number and copy link location).
Do not link to the promo itself from the Wiki, as the promo page is likely to disappear once the promo ended and such link will die, leaving the wiki sans historical info.

2018 and earlier promotions can be found here.

Does removing service fee mean that the ticket prices get closer to 3rd party travel agency (like ticket.fi) prices?

Did they also remove fees from other countries, for example the CHF 15 fee from Switzerland? Or does this apply only for exFI tickets?

Ahh, I was wondering why HEL-BRU was still pricing up as 10K... Oh well, maybe I'll save my miles on something better then.

At least https://www.finnair.com/ch/gb/ says yes, CHF 15 fee also removed.

You are right, even after without service fee, same tickets are now 0.55 EUR more expensive

Exact 5 EUR increase in base fare and 0.55 in taxes, fees and charges minus 5 EUR service fee.

There was a typo. Text should read:
WE REMOVED OUR SERVICE, FEEBLE.

Funny how they use A359 C class picture for promoting European upgrades but all European A359 routes are blocked in this campaign.

I can't decide what to do with the upgrade offer. I'd upgrade my upcoming A359 to LHR in a heartbeat, but that can't be done. Most of my other flights don't have F availability, with the exception of a morning flight to MXP, for which I currently have an exit seat. 7000 points for an empty middle and some uninspiring eggthing, yes or no? If it was a lunch or dinner flight, I'd probably take it.

You can also order a special meal and enjoy that for breakfast if you don't like the eggs.

Same here. Got some AMS-HEL flights comin up with F availability but I just don't know....
Kinda reallly feels like a waste of points to spend those on a meal. Because basically that's it, as all the other benefits I already get as AY Gold.
Rather saving the points for a LH upgrade....
