2020 Promotions

Not (yet) a promo, but with RAM joining Oneworld on April fool day, I guess we'll have the traditional new member carrier bonus points promo?

Although not sure what use that is for HEL-based people.

I agree on ATR. One must be pretty desperate to take one of those. But AT is IATA speak for Royal Air Maroc

Why not try out RAM's ATR?
You can easily try it on your next LPA trip.

I just flew LPA-EUN-LPA on an ATR. But on Binter Canarias. EUN was interesting enough to warrant 48 hours there, including a Christmas mass held by a Congolese priest in the only church of the city.

And EUN is one of the very few airports from where you can actually walk to your city centre hotel.

It has been very quiet on the promotion side lately? 5 points for 2eur Koristeluraappa, etc in the partner promo was the last action I can recall raising some discussion, but not many points.

Has AY consciously decided that the promos don't generate (enough) new business to pay off the hassle, or have they downsized the promo department or what is going on?

Speaking of ATR, fancy a promotional Business class deal between HEL and GDN for just 1200 onboard this nice aircraft? Actually This is Real. Well done, AY!

As it is GDN, that deal must include a standing seat in the back (=galley bar) with free flowing vodka and making business with beautiful FA.
or then just a regular service at a regular price.

Got interested to look where EUN is. Seems it is biggest (=small) city in the least dense country and the territory/country is west-Sahara belonging to Morocco. Was it safe there?

Perhaps they are busy with the ancillary stuff..
In Q3 report, ancillary revenue grew 8,8% but since passenger rev. grew 8,6% they are making hardly any progress. Growth in ancillary must outpace the overall rate-of-change in passenger rev. otherwise they are not succeeding in establishing ancillary revenue as a new stable and substantial source of income.




To grow and win in the competitive airline market, Finnair must excel in everyday customer experience. In the review period, focus was put especially on customer care processes, feedback handlingand ancillary and on-board service development.Finnair’s Net Promoter Score (NPS) measuring customer satisfaction was38(49)5and Finnair’s arrival punctualitywas 80.2per cent (81.8).
