SAS is funny (Christmas Calendar today in Finland)

- Destination is 0 km from your nearest airport
- Destination is 0C warmer than your nearest airport
- There is rainy days 0 more than in your nearest airport

Cool!

Domestic flights, too bad that there is no domestic flights from Tampere, only flights to Stockholm and Copenhagen. So I can buy the domestic flight from Tampere to Tampere and sit in the cafeteria?

I wonder what was the point to ask the nearest airport during the registration if the result is this? I know, that this promotion is more important for people living somewhere where there are domestic flights with KF but for Tampere this promotion was useless (if not first travel to Helsinki and then use this promotion).

You could take the Paunu bus to Vantaa, fly on this wonderful promotion to Oulu, and then take the VR home. <ha ha>

They also let you book a bonus trip for half the points. It just doesn´t tell where and when. But looking at the swedish-language version of the same page it says domestic flights. I hope they keep on offering these point-bargains as well.

Or fly with Finnair (Aero) between Tampere and Vantaa ... it is nice that SAS supports also competitors

Ah yes, it is the brotherhood campaign. I guess I was expected to fly AF to Paris to catch yesterday's Chicago offer...

Hmm... does that mean that you earn no points?

Actually the offer seems to book into T class, so at least close to no points.
