Trade your air miles for plastic surgery?Posted on November 30, 2009
Finnair, Finland’s biggest airline, has an offbeat new idea for frequent flyers: Exchange your air miles for plastic surgery!
According to the airline’s website, the cosmetic procedures are performed at the Nordstroem Hospital in Helsinki. All the usual procedures can be obtained with air miles – but it takes one heckuva lot of points! Earning the 3.18 million points for breast augmentation surgery requires 120 round-trip, business-class flights between Helsinki and New York, according to a points table on Finnair’s Web site.
Customers who want to redeem their air miles for cosmetic surgery must first book a 95-euro consultation at the hospital before using loyalty points for the surgery voucher.
