Flight Review: Finnair Economy Class (A321)
Yes, I know, the image above is not of an A321, but my Finnair journey started, this time, on one of these, that took me to Helsinki for the longer leg of the trip Helsinki to Barcelona on a super-early 5.40am flight.
Flight #: AY3271
From: Helsinki Vantaa (HEL)
To: Barcelona- El Prat (BCN)
Flight time: 3h 45min
Aircraft: Airbus A321
Given that I spent a few hours at Helsinki airport before boarding my flight, it would be good to have a few words about the experience, but actually I wrote a separate post about this already, so here is the link.
When it comes to the passenger experience, I spend most of the flight sleeping, which is always a good sign (particularly in economy class!).
The cabin, which features the light-grey colours that you can see in the following pictures, was spotlessly clean and seat pitch was rather good.
Food and drinks are sold at a charge, although water and tea and complimentary (nice detail!)
No more free meals, but at least looks like Finnair is really making an effort when it comes to in-flight food, offering a mix of (mainly) healthy choices.
Good overall experience. Great airport for transfer flights.
Relatively high prices for food and, particularly, drinks both at the airport and onboard are a bit of a downside, but at least the complimentary water and tea compensates it a bit.
