    Anyone know why I can’t see or book the Finnair flights from EDI to HEL on BA app or website? Does it have to be on the Finnair site? BA only shows its own (connecting) flights – normal?

    • The Original David says:

      BA.com generally only shows BA codeshares, unless it’s an itinerary with another BA flight on it somewhere. Why don’t you just book with AY? (Or indeed check Skyscanner to find out who else is selling it cheaper, if there’s no chance you’ll want to change the ticket.)
