    Finnair Business Class. March 8, 2013

    Destinations: Helsinki – Asia
    Plane: Airbus 320
    Configuration: 1-2-1

    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
    – Usb slot
    – 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.


    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.


    I think he means the 330 with staggeredd seating, that has some 1-2-1 rows, whereas the A340 IIRC has 2x2x2.
