How can I find cheap flights from Turku Finland to any other EU country?

I'm in Turku Finland with my SO and we would like to visit other countries in the EU.  The things is we don't mind which country, just whichever is cheap/convenient. We'd just like to find cheap and direct flights from Turku Airport to other countries in the shengen area (that's where my visa is valid).  We don't want to take a boat or bus.  Thanks!

What airports does JFK fly too?

I'm looking to fly to the Palo Alto area sometime next month. I don't necessarily want to fly to SFO, especially if there is a smaller airport nearby. Im flying from JFK, which is not negotiable. 'time of week, cost, etc. are all negotiable. Thanks for any insight.

Airlines don't allow "snub-nosed" dogs. But my dog's face is special!

I have a Boston Terrier and would like to take him on a plane. Airline rules say Bostons are "snub-nosed" dogs that are not allowed on planes. But this particularly charming Boston is not "snub nosed" at all. His nose is not squishy. No breathing problems. He has a noble carriage! Many people think he is, in fact, some other breed. Is there any leniency in airline policy on this? (Pic inside!) [more inside]

I needs to travel home on the cheap! (From Tokyo to Ohio)

I am going to be moving back home from Japan (Narita or Haneda) to Ohio (Cleveland-Hopkins) in about 3 weeks to a month. I have not purchased a plane ticket yet, and have no clue where to start. I am considering doing a bit of traveling in between, but don't have too much money to spend so I would like to iron out the details of my return plans first. Help me, Metafilter! [more inside]

Transfer time in LAX: Flying from Canada to Japan

We are flying from Toronto to LAX (on Air Canada) and then LAX to Tokyo (on United), with a layover in LAX of 95 minutes. Based on my research, I assume we will be passing from Terminal 2 to 7. We're both Canadian citizens, if that matters. I haven't seen anything definitive on this particular transfer, but based on other AskMefi LAX answers it seems a little unlikely this will work... Is that enough time?

Eardrums, planes, and how they interact

I realize you folks are not my doctor or my pharmacist, but maybe someone among you has been in this situation before and knows the way out. Just over a week ago I contracted an ear infection which subsequently spread to the other ear. The infection is on the wane but not yet over, but my eustachian tubes are are still gummed up, rendering me about 90% hearing-impaired at the moment. I was put on basic antibiotics (amoxycillin) last week and as of a couple of days ago, was switched to some more heavy-duty stuff (biaxin), but I am still pretty clogged up. The tricky part: in three days I have to get on a plane. [more inside]

How many ways are there of getting off the ground?

What birds were these?

I live in the Western NC mountains. Early this morning I saw a line of birds flying very high, ( they looked like a ribbon of dots), and fast, from south to north. The formation was strikingly beautiful as they were following in a wavering line rather than the typical V formation. What species did I see?

Why isn't the male/female makeup of pilots and flight attendants proportionate to the population?

Recently I went on a trip with my kid sister and each time, the pilots were men and the flight attendants were women and even while we were waiting to board, we watched the pilots and flight attendants for other airlines walk to their gates and it was always the same and she was curious and disgruntled about this, so I thought I would ask the hive mind. Are there institutional/systemic/socioeconomic reasons why the pilot/flight attendant makeup isn't proportionate to the population they serve?

Wads of small bills at JFK Airport - how to change?

This past weekend I had a huge moving sale, and ended up with about $1500 in small bills ($1s, $5s, $10s, $20s). Between cleaning my apartment and packing everything up today, I forgot to go to the bank and deposit the money into my account. Tomorrow morning I fly out of JFK (Terminal 4, specifically) to move to San Francisco, and since my flight is early there's no time to go to a bank. I feel weird traveling with these huge wads of cash, especially as it's all small bills. Right now it's all stuffed into a cigar box in my carry-on. I don't think it will fit in my wallet. Will the currency exchange places give me $100s (or better yet a money order) for my cash, and will I find one before passing through security? Will TSA steal from me, or give me a hard time for carrying these wads of bills? Is there possibly a Bank of America branch in JFK? What should I do? I don't think I'm comfortable depositing this much cash through an ATM, and anyway it would take forever.

Search for flights, excluding codeshare options

Is there a website like Kayak, but with the option to filter by the airline that operates the flight (i.e. to exclude codeshares)? Or is it possible to do this on Kayak?
