So the flights were booked. The flight from Helsinki to Phuket was an Airbus A340, one of my favourite jets having 4 engines. The service was...

Flew with Finnair in the new A350 business class recently Sydney to Milan.(Qantas to Hong Kong then Finnair) The cost was very competitive at $5600 AUD. The A350 business class was pretty good. Contrary to others complaints about foot space I found the seat to be fairly comfortable. Food & service also good. In summary I think its the best...

Got the exit seat so no complaints. Finnair should change the menu more often, I've been flying this connection for over 2 years and still it's the same menu.

My first flight with the new Finnair fleet A350WB in economy comfort. This is real value for the money to upgrade here for the legroom. No traditional boxes in your feet, really good screen for entertainment, WiFi, USB to plug on your phone for own entertainment or just charging. Plane is spacious and really silent compared to other new planes...

I came from Zagreb with Air France and should continue with Finnair to Helsingfors. I had one hour time in Paris to catch to flight to Helsingfors. I must say that they are rather strict at the Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris nowadays. When I came in to the Paris Airport from Zagreb I had at once to go...

I wanted to celebrate the Christmas with my daughter and her family in Halmstad, Sweden. The best way to travel to the South of Sweden is to take a flight from Helsingfors to Copenhagen and then continue with train from Kastrup to Halmstad. This time I chose Finnair. Nice flight, friendly staff, but only tea and snacks.

The international flight from Helsinki, Finland to Samara, Russia was only two and a half hours. But it was a memorable one. The flight attendant Tiina was absolutely professional in service -- courteous, knowledgeable, friendly. She also told me about the history of that airline that started as Finncomm Airlines, and now it is Nordic Regional Airlines (NoRRA), affiliated with...

The nine hour flight from Chicago to Helsinki on Finnair was a new and fantastic experience. It was my first flight on Finnair. The layout of the Airbus 330-300 (Business Class) was superb: the majority of the rows had ONE seat, so comfortable and spacious that it was impossible not to enjoy the flight. The bed unfolds horizontally -- so...
