Can someone explain how adding AY Plus number affects tracking period ?

Maybe I wrote it a bit unclear. I would book now for flying in December, and as a new AY+ member, I would join and add the number just short of the flight, so the tracking period would start then instead of now.
What I meant, is it really fine to add the number later regarding the triple point promotion? I know I would be able to do it later...

This all boils down to a mismatch between the intent of the campaign and terms of sales on one side, and the actual software coding and database on the other side.
I have been having this fight (to mostly generic copy and paste replies) with AY CS. Had a booking where AY cancelled a flight a month out and had to re-route me. Received new ticket during the 2x promo period (original booking was before that promo). Could have cancelled and re-booked but who knows when I would have received the refund. AY says no 2x points, despite the CS agent saying "only new tickets are included in the campaign". Well, I received a new ticket number, so it should be included.

I would read "don't forget to add the number on the reservation" as it's fine to add it later?!
I don’t think this is going to work. If you want the triple points, you need to add the AY+ number during the booking process.

On some routes they certainly have. I was on the road when the promo started. When I first read about the promo I looked at the prices if I would rebook the not yet flown Eco Flex bookings I booked during the previous double points promo and saw that I could rebook for roughly the same price. I wanted to get home before doing that, now prices have gone up about 25% for some of the bookings. In some cases I could find similar pricing to my old bookings for other dates, but e.g. HEL - BKK - HEL in Eco Flex in June is now over 1000 e for all dates. It used to be a bit over 800 e (and it still was when the promo started). That roughly 800 e is still available in November.

I would say that you definitely at least need to be AY+ member at the time of booking and the limited sales period for the promotion. It most probably would be a stretch to then later on argue with AY and try to claim for the missing x3 points, when not even been a member at the time of booking and validity of triple points promotion targeted for AY+ members.

I read the reminder to add the membership number to the booking as a requirement to do so when booking, in order to there being even a remote chance for it to work as marketed.

Are you sure ? Did I make the big blunder ? First booked and few hours later added the number.

Edit : I just checked T & C and it says " Remember to add your Finnair Plus member number on your reservation". I hope it does not mean during booking process.

Not 100 % sure, but I would assume you need to book with the AY+ number attached right away to trigger the bonus.

I doubt that the system even track whence the FFP reference was added, and it would be kind of unfair to program members who simply forgot to add the number during the booking process. I would be surprised if the system checked the date of joining the program either.

So I expect that it would work regardless in practice. But it is ostensibly not supposed to work, and you'd have no recourse if it does fail for any reason.

I can only talk about involuntary changes. There is no doubt (also from AY) that this does not affect the applicability of the campaign. But it breaks the automatic process. Same goes for upgrades.

Currently it seems to be a pain to get the additional points into the system. Let alone that they should be marked as points earned for AY flights. This is what really bothers me if you aim for Lumo.

I very much doubt there is any rule saying you need to add the number at booking, and finnair IT certainly is NOT that sophisticated to track that.

I would be 99% that adding a ay+ number before flying is enough. PERHAPS FinnairPlus can verify

But I assume that they know since when a member exists.

I just booked a platinum renew flights. All flights next fall during the one week. A few flights around Europe and one CDG-BKK-CDG rt. All flights Y flex except one HEL-ARN-HEL Campaign Light. At this platsku is secured well into 2024. All this was around 140 points/eur. Bangkok is mass tourism as I'm gonna be there four looong days.
