I'm looking for multiple options to spend my 100K BA miles on OW partners. I love the CX to Asia idea, but I'm also considering flying Finnair (AY) to Europe in J. I don't think AY has F(?). I've always wanted to go to Helsinki, but looking at the award chart for "one BA partner airline," North America to HEL would cost 130K in J. However flying to a Europe 1 city like FRA would only be 100K. Since AY hubs through HEL, does anyone know if would I be able to spend the lesser amount (100K) if I make my "destination" in Europe 1 and stopover in HEL on the way? Has anyone tried this? If so, this would be a great mile saver! I'd probably try to also open jaw in Europe 1 to get a third city before returning. For my 100K BA miles, I think this would be a great trip.
