£330 is the cheapest I can find via TravelUp.

I booked two trips to HEL via TravelUp and itís all been fine, however, reading the comments on TrustPilot, I wouldnít buy the Silver or Gold packages as the £15 and £10 codes you get for future usage never seem to work on the website and according to reviews the agents make false promises of resolution times, call backs and email replies. So book the standard package and hope for the best.

Finnair can "take over" your ticket 7-days before departure. So in case of a delay or problem, wait a bit then contact them within this time window to resolve rebookings etc. Found their customer support chat to be very useful on this ticket.

I've just done the same. It's half the price of the same ticket with AY direct and at £2 a TP is not bad at all.

Really having trouble finding this fare. Any example dates and websites to use?

I did this run yesterday and it was very enjoyable. The lounges are fantastic. My only regret is not looking closer at the aircraft as there is quite some variety on the route. I went out at 07:30 on the A319 and came back at 16:00 on the A350. A350 was great but I was hoping to try the new Finnair business product which, I believe, is on the A330. I did the trip to get me over the line for silver so no real need to do it agin. I paid £274 but £330 is still a great deal!!

Some A350s have the new seat on this route too.

TravelUp but be careful. Donít buy the silver or gold packages as youíll never be able to redeem the vouchers.

I have the A350 trip both ways in July (I think on the 46J variant). How do I tell if it's new or old seats?

I have recently seen a few youtube reviews of the new seat and they were all on an 08:00 from HEL-LHR. Not sure if it is still in operation on that route or was temporary

I believe with the new seats, if you go to seat map there are no 1A/L - the cabin starts with 2A/L (but there are middle 1D/H).

That's the 30J variant that includes the new PE seats. Looks like I'm out of luck
