I'm covered for this year... Was just curious what his plans were.

I'm being a little nutty. 3 nights in the Icehotel (only one in a cold room).  One evening I'm doing a dog sledding tour to hopefully see the northern lights. One day I'm driving over to Narvik and stopping over in Abisko for a bit on the return. One evening I'm driving over to northern Finland to see the northern lights from there.
I'm hoping to do a night in the glass cottages of the Northern Lights Ranch in Kittila Finland, but nothing available for my nights as of now.
I'm open to any other ideas!  Oh, and if you have a link to a "shooting the northern lights for dummies" article I'd appreciate it :)

Similar crazy routing to what I booked for my LYR trip, but that was back when UA let you price out multi legs online.

I'd Come two hours early to the DUB initial leg.

I guarantee you if its EI metal connecting to SAS issued by UA you'll have some sort of ticketing hiccup.

and if Its SAS Metal ex-DUB you'l be dealing with incompetent contract workers.

Yup, that's the plan.

I'm connecting from a separate D8 itin.

and if Its SAS Metal ex-DUB you'l be dealing with incompetent contract workers.

Dunno, even the real SAS employees I've dealt in the past with have been mostly incompetent as well ;D.
