News in brief:
The Facebook ‘Avios Suitcase’ game is over
For the last couple of year, it has been possible to pick up the odd hundred Avios here and there in avios.com by using the Avios Suitcase app on Facebook.
You didn’t even need to do anything to get the points – just click on various links. Some tasks insisted that you post various things to social media.
There haven’t been any new ‘suitcases’ added for a while. The Avios Twitter team has now confirmed that the game is over.
The app still exists on Facebook (with ‘900+ monthly users’). I’ve no idea what happens if you go into it now for the first time – you may or may not still be able to earn the points.
Good Finnair deals to Asia
Finnair has launched a new batch of sale fares from the UK to Asia. There are a few reasons why you should find this interesting:
You can fly from Manchester and now Edinburgh as well as London
You can earn BA tier points and Avios when flying Finnair
Depending on route, you may get the impressive new Finnair A350 business class seat I reviewed here (the A350 has a special website here)
The following prices are available for bookings made by 15th March. Travel dates vary but the end date will be between mid June and late July. You must stay away for a Saturday night.
Finnair also flies to Bangkok, Hong Kong, Nagoyo, Osaka, Shanghai and Tokyo but these are more expensive at between £1,500 and £2,000 return.
Full details and flight rules for these offers can be found here.
