From Check-in to leaving the plane - NOTHING I could possibly be unhappy with. Great team - friendly, funny and caring. They seem to love what they do, and they make you feel special and relaxed. Felt very safe, new planes, great entertainment system, really nice food options... my new favourite airline when flying from SEA to Europe. In Helsinki...

my flight from Milan to Helsinki was delayed several times and was eventually cancelled. Instead of reprotecting me and my wife on one of the several alternative flights available from MXP, they sent me to HEL on the late evening flight and I obviously missed my connection from HEL to BKK. After waiting for a bus in the rain we...

New A350 planes are very spacey. Finnair is clearly improving the service level. Flying constantly last 10 years I still trust and like Finnair - nice to see them improving.

I have been flying this airline for over 20 years and it is getting progressively worse. Bottom line for Finnair is profit, there it ends. You can do nothing with Finnair unless you do it online then there is not answer for months. Try and upgrade your seat at checking.......no can do...must be done on line. Try and book a...

I was thrilled to board the new A350. Take off was the quietest I have ever seen. Somehow the flight was quite empty and almost everyone had three seats to themselves. It seems all of the flight attendants are from Hong Kong. The entertainment system is fabulous. It is pretty much an Android tablet on the back of a seat....
