According to the post, these flights are on Finnair and we can use AMEX Business Platinum “Hybrid” points to book. However, when I try to choose the airline with AMEX, I am always given the option only of US-based airlines. How do I make Finnair the airline and book this with those points? Thanks!


@CtownBin to use AMEX Platinum hybrid you need to select American Airlines then you’ll get the deal the way you want it. Good Luck!
