For example SXF.
This is exactly what I meant. I did HEL-ARN last week and instead of the usual exiting past the gates, we were directed downstairs and directly to baggage claim. Although, it might have been possible to walk from baggage claim back to the gates.

might be worth someone posting a generic question in the thread and feeding back here

Posted the question there - thanks for the tip ^

My thoughts are if it comes to it, its a small cost to eat, would be nice to use some of it though! Probably wont know until nearer the time

Aww... that would be a pity, it would have been interesting to meet

Regarding the rules, it was indeed not changeable and not refundable, but one should get back at least some taxes.

From my receipt
Restriction(s)/Endorsements

: No Chng / Non Ref/-/Eucn15*V1-9105079760
The tax portion for BLQ-HKG should be around 74 eur. The big chunk of the price is the Carrier Surcharge. Base fare was just 1 eur.

my gut feeling is Ill at a minimum do say the STR-HEL-CAN leg and maybe book an earlier flight back from HKG to give myself a little bit more time in Europe. Bit of a perfect storm with work and home life at the moment!

Sorry for the storm, and best wishes for it... Maybe we will cross paths in the lounge at HEL between SH and LH flights
