United and its partners are attacking American / Oneworld fares to Helsinki. This is a K fare, so unless you are on United, Air Canada or Brussels operated flights, you will not earn 100% mileage. We are showing routings that maximize mileage accrual. If you don’t care about miles, fully operated flights by Lufthansa are a few dollars cheaper.
There are slight price differences from each city. Phoenix is $683 while all the other cities are $685. Per Fare Deal Alert, also available from Charlotte to Helsinki on United for about the same price.
