Finnair Plus status challenge for EB members

I heard this from a colleague. Haven't tested yet:

https://www.finnair.com/se/se/finnai...tier-challenge

So it seems AY+ is matching EB again...

They are offering a challenge not a match they did this also for LH group last year and Airberlin customers too...

Too bad only challenge to Gold...

AY silver is quite watered down BUT its still better then nothing 👍

The fast track to Gold may be worth it to some 👍. I signed up just incase, I have one flight booked as is so might as well 😁

Thank you OP for bringing to this our attention

Edit: looks like this is open ONLY for residents ofSweden, Norway, and Denmark 👎👎👎

Just as a word of caution: never sign up for a status match or challenge unless you plan to really use it the following year.

in almost all cases it is a one-time in a life offer.

i was quite stupid to use the Flying Blue status match but never used the status that year. Not that option is blown for good.

Very good point I had the same with AS but not all companies are once in a lifetime but many are

With your EBD card I would ask them if they seriously don't want to offer it to you.

One can allways try 😁😂

They never responded to my request for the TobBonus match/challenge so I may just be persona non grata 😁😁

Oneworld Ruby (AY S) is only slightly less worthless than Star Alliance Silver. So that alone is not worth doing anything for.

​​​​​​Oneworld Sapphire (AY G) is roughly equivalent to Star Gold, though it does not give you alliance wide fast track. That needs Emerald to be a stated benefit. Though some airlines do offer it to Sapphire.

The real point of Oneworld status come with Emerald But AY Emerald qualifying levels are really made for people flying predominantly AY J.
