Airfare Deal – Finnair: New York / Los Angeles / San Francisco / Dallas / Chicago / Boston / Washington D.C. – Helsinki, Finland. $553 – $691. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

Finnair joined the American, British Airways and Iberia transatlantic joint venture today. And we assume that to celebrate, they are putting Helsinki on sale.

For country collectors, you can visit St. Petersburg, Russia visa free for up to 72 hours from Helsinki. More info here – St. Petersburg, Russia visa free.

[Update 7/2/2013 @ 1:15AM Eastern – these seems to be gone. Prices are +$200 – $250 more, which are normalized across all OW carriers – AA, BA, IB and Finnair. Anti-trust joint ventures = anti-consumer and basically legalized price fixing]

[Update 7/2/2013 @ 2:30AM Eastern – LAX is still pricing as a deal. It is ~$750]
