This year I have this far tried for me two new airlines and I will keep on writing some reviews about my experiences. Today’s airline is Finnair which I flew from Singapore to Helsinki this night.
The aircraft of the day was an Airbus A340-300 and as an Airbus lover the Finnair experience could not have started better. The flight was also almost full, with four empty seats and I had two of them at my row. Win.
I was traveling in economy class but it was a good kind of econ. The seats were comfortable, the IFE had quite few but good movies and the blankets were of the more comfortable kind designed by Merimekko. Also the headphones were noise isolated and no super cheap stuff so although I was sitting on the row just behind business class the noise from the engines were like at the first row.
I continue to give the thumb up to the crew which was very friendly and served good food. For dinner I took fish and rice with white wine (as always when the option is available) and for breakfast they served omelet, bread and yoghurt. In between they offered snack in the galley but I slept ten hours out of the 12 so I did not tried that.
So to summarize my first Finnair experience get five out of five P’s in economy class. It was everything you needed on a 12 hour flight and it is also the shortest way to Asia from Sweden. Total travel time including transfer and a connecting SAS flight is to Stockholm is less than 15 hours and that I think is very good. I can definitely think of fly this airline again if I for example go to Seoul or Delhi.
