Weekend of 2/11 to 6/11, Finnair is £1357 whereas TK is £1763. You can save an extra £75 or so and not worry about currency conversion through Momondo.

It depends on to where and when you travel.
Sometimes Finnair is cheaper than Turkish Airlines, sometimes Turkish Airlines is cheaper than Finnair.

Because purchasing power is stronger in the greater Copenhagen area than in the greater Stockholm area.

Thanks AHO, good point, did not realize such a great discrepancy between these regions in terms of purchasing power.

Could someone explain me why longhaul saver business fares from ARN are so much cheaper than from other ports on the continent? QR and TK seems to often throw out quite some cheap fares.
Purchasing power is much greater in ARN than at WAW, PRG ...

It depends on destination.
To Chima is often cheaper from Warsaw and Prague than from Stockholm.

The nice thing about Finnair I fare class is that it earns 25% EQD on AA... most airlines the cheapest biz fare only earns 14 or 20%.

EQD earning is still much better per actual $$ spent on current QR business fares ARN/OSL-MEL/CBR/AKL, even at "only" 20% -- on an arguably better product on most routes.

There certainly are some sweet spots and I love QR's business class, but to BKK, AY is cheaper, though QR is $200 less out of HEL. Planning some BA PE runs out of ARN which give the best EQD bang per dollar, so AY (or CX PE) back to BKK is the winner.
