Will try my luck within the next couple of days and ask (via chat) to move the flights to 10/2021 (or maybe later ?). HKG is now good for 3 weeks of quarantine; I do not see a real chance to fly over in May. The ticket is almost 15 moths old and maybe AY is not 'in the mood' to extend it another 5 months...?

Yes, I could move my flights to 10/2021. Go to AY page, and set country to ITA/english. Other countries ask for fare differences and more waiting time (7day before dep.)Took me almost one hour for a good result.

Can't make any voluntary changes unless there's a cancellation is what the last few Finnair chat representatives have told me. Entire thing reprices, ticket is out of validity, etc

I received cancellation information today and tried to fix my ticket. My original booking was to CAN. i tried to change my destination from CAN to HKG, but they rejected my request. Despite COVID-19, EC261 is still valid and they should rebook me to CAN even another airline if AY can’t operetta to CAN? I would be fine, if I can change my destination to another destination in Asia, but they told me that only option is refund?

How can they just ignore EC261?

Try your luck e.g. at polish or italian website. I had 3 attempts (german, polish, italian). At my last change 6 months ago I had the best result at UK-site.

Watch out, guys. Expedia requested a refund for one of my CAN tickets (rebooked for September 2021, which AY just cancelled again). Without ever contacting me. I am trying to find out what happened.

Same here. Move my flights from May to October 21 (the latest flight changes affect my connecting flights on the same ticket). AY chat with US country settings.
