    Seth — you’ve got 1K status — did AA not extend a status match to EXP? I did it in August with no issue…

    Not sure if you’ve ever been through Manchester, but it’s a pain of an airport to transit through and a delay of any sort would probably cause you to misconnect.

    how do u plan to use the stopover on AA award?
    if you can use the stopover, it would probably be the best deal….

    otherwise, i would stay with *A due to lounge access, etc.

    I like MAN – my favorite UK airport. Good train connections, and much easier than LHR.

    How about non of the above. Instead FI via KEF you can do a stopover in KEF too 🙂 At least that’s the route I’m thinking of doing in May/June from OSL

    Will you have time to see anything in HEL or just a few hours to sleep? I’d see a new city if I had time. And I would use the extra one-way. And I would make MAN a stopover as suggested above (visited in October, awesome cultural scene and some great Pakistani restaurants; also flying out was easy, way better than LHR)

    As others have said above, option 3.

    I’d definitely go with Option 1. When else will you get a chance to take advantage of the 787 ex-OSL? Not an opportunity that arises often
