Anonymous10 Apr 2013
Finnair Business Class. March 8, 2013
Destinations: Helsinki – Asia
Plane: Airbus 320
Who’s it for?
– Business travellers (generally European businessmen, wealthy Japanese tourists)
– Best for overnight flights.
– Priority check-in
– Priority baggage handling
– 2x 23kg check-in, 1x 10kg carry-on
– Expedited passport / security control at Helsinki airport slightly to the left in the main hall.
– Lounge Access: Helsinki Lounge has basic food options, drinks and magazines – overlooking the airfield – foyer front area gets quite crowded so head on through to the back for more space and solitude. You need to carry your hand luggage up a narrow winding staircase.
– 180* lie-flat beds
– Hard shell seats – port and starboard is a single row of seats – so you have extra privacy.
– Adjustable headrest – vertical and head support
– Space in armrest for phone, iPad, electronics
– Space in front for a bottle of water
– Coat hook
– Thick blanket
– Reading light and standard overhead light
– 12″ screen

– Universal power slot
– Professional, efficient, emotionless
– Pre-flight drinks – champagne, oj, water
– Standard 3 course meal with warmed nuts, salad, smoked fish, chicken/fish, desert
– Paper bag amenity kit stocked with night mask and earplugs – for everything else, ask for it. They say it’s for the environment, but really, anyone who pays $2,000 to fly 10,000 km at an average of 2.63 Litres of fuel per 100 km passenger (probably a bit more for business class) wouldn’t mind having an amenity kit they could bring home to their kids, partner, office mates – instead of a ripped paper bag.
– Washroom – blueberry handcreme
– Good business class service between Europe and Asia with quick connections through Helsinki
– Prices vary between economical and expensive depending on the season and travel volume.10 Apr 2013
Very detailed review but I don’t think this can have been an A320 – that was pobably on your connecting flight to HEL. If fully flat, sounds more like AY’s A330; if lie flat, it was probably the A340.10 Apr 2013
