Traveling these days can be a little strange and at times more difficult than normal due to this pandemic. Finnair did an amazing job and all areas of the trip! I would absolutely fly with finnair again and will recommend the airline to friends and family.
Pleasant flight, was delayed 3 1/2 hours
Pros: "Free movies"
Cons: "Free wifi. Better movie selection"
Pros: "Both crews from JFK to HEL and HEL to JFK were great. Very attentive and accommodating."
Cons: "I was bumped off my flight and re-routed return to NYC. Flight was supposed to depart at 10:25am and flight they put me on left 1:05 Pm and the connection was not even Finnair, but Icelandic air. The Kayak site did not alert about extra charge for confirmed seat before I had paid in full ticket."
Pros: "The movies in the flight"
Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was absurd. There were 3 people who fainted because it was an 8 hour flight, and the AC was not at an ideal temperature. I was sweating, and so was my mother. ABSURD"
Pros: "Crew was ok, But seats so tight, Economy size seats fitted in Business Class and so much wastage of space around seat, very little quantity and quality of food available.The flights to Delhi and Amritsar has more than 60 % Punjab Travelers and there is not even a single movie in Punjabi movie. Poor."
Cons: "Economy size seats fitted in Business Class and so much wastage of space around seat, very little quantity and quality of food available.The flights to Delhi and Amritsar has more than 60 % Punjab Travelers and there is not even a single movie in Punjabi, Please learn from Qatar Airways."
Pros: "calming environment, finnish style"
Cons: "on the flight to new york i got a game sandwich. i like that. brining finnish culture to us. but on the way from new york to helsinki i got a boring bagel."
Pros: "It was comfortable and smooth."
Cons: "It was all good."
Pros: "I was very satisfied by the flights by Finnair - kind personnel, good food, on time flights."
Pros: "I flew in economy. 9+ hours from ORD to HEL. The seat was average size. We were provided with a pillow, blanket and headphones. I did not use the in-flight entertainment, which was on an LCD screen. It was warm, so i didn't use the blanket. I also brought a neck-pillow, which is vital on overnight flights. They served a full dinner shortly after takeoff: I had meat lasagna which wasn't that bad, along with corn, a roll w/ butter, two saltine crackers with decent cheese and a chocolate pudding. Upon waking, I ate the breakfast, which was scrambled eggs and two sausages and a roasted tomato, a roll with butter, fruit cup and orange juice, coffee on the side. All pretty good, it was nice to have a meal before deplaning in Helsinki and waiting to get through passport control. Attendants on this flight were quite friendly. Check-in was run very efficiently. No problems with luggage. All in all, a real bargain price, and I got more than I bargained for."
Cons: "As for the downside, I had no significant disappointments on the long leg of my flight on Finnair. I hope my return flights will be just as good."
Pros: "Entertainment, quick de boarding, food tastes good, free drinks"
Cons: "Extra long boarding process and the air conditioner was broken. We sat there like that for at least 30 minutes. Also, the airline had overbooked so we weren't able to check in the day before and pick our seats. That was a huge inconvenience."
Pros: "Movie choices were good."
Cons: "It was cold and very little leg room. Food was barely warm"
Cons: "Toilets were gross."
Cons: "They lost my luggage at some point in the short journey."
Pros: "The flight was late. Some people had problems to find place for their luggage, which took even more time until we were ready to take off."
Cons: "This flight was delayed 5 and a half hours and did not arrive into Chicago until almost midnight."
Pros: "Seats were larger than expected - more comfortablethan most airlines."
Cons: "Flight entertainmenot working well Frankfurt airport had no free wifi."
Pros: "I liked everything. Pleasant flight."
Cons: "Not that I didn't like, only some comments: Flight was 40 min late at arrival due to delayed start from JFK, the plane had to wait on runway before take-off. Not a problem for me as HEL was my final destination."
Cons: "No room on flight ran out of wine and food before getting to the back 1/3 of plane where I was sitting I can say one of the worst travel flights I've ever had"
Pros: "Good movie selection, frequent water refills, boarding was quick and easy with ample overhead stowage"
Cons: "Seat recline was broken, non-adjustable headrest, older flight crew less tolerant of passenger disrespect, not quite enough bathrooms, food had my stomach in knots"
Cons: "Plane had to be switched, but the process was disorganized and frustrating. Had to miss my connection as a result"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and gave us a $10 meal vou"
Cons: "The long delay wasn't great."
Cons: "Crew members were almost non-existent. Saw them beginning and end of flight only and this was not even red eye flight. Food quality was very poor for premium seating. Many on board had to approach flight crew in back of cabin to get something to drink throughout he 10 hour flight."
Pros: "Overall a great flight."
Cons: "Breakfast not their best meal. No tea or coffee served, very disappointing."
Pros: "Temperature on flight was comfortably cool. Food was delicious and flight attendants were pleasant and attentive. The flight was full but service was prompt. Very enjoyable!"
Cons: "The lighting on my screen made it difficult to see it very well...adjusting brightness was not effective. Also, the programming selection was somewhat limited and it would have been nice to start a movie when you wanted instead of waiting."
Pros: "Not bad as cross-ocean flights go, but cramped. The seats (and the available room per person) are what would be considered normal nowadays, but I remember flying thirty years ago. The crew was very pleasant and snacks were served (and appreciated), but didn't make up for the cramped conditions."
Pros: "Movies Food Comfortable seating"
Cons: "Going through security"
Pros: "Power in every seat. Great headphones. Solid in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "The service was remarkable. Everyone was very attentive and friendly which is exactly what you would want for a long flight. The crew came around frequently to provide beverages and left you alone to sleep."
Cons: "The boarding process was a bit hectic. The flight was full which I completely understand. After everyone was settled in the plane it took another 25 minutes to leave the runway."
Pros: "Excellent service - on time, comfortable and great food!"
Cons: "Some staff were a little abrupt, but very efficient and helpful."
Pros: "Friendly flight crew made me feel very welcome . Food and drinks service was excellent, nice choices. Movie selection was vast."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable with plenty of room."
Cons: "Plane was broken and we had to wait 3 1/2 hours to get a new plane. Crew kept awkwardly mentioning during every announcement that the delay wasn't their fault... My husband's entertainment screen was broken and flickering so much that all shows/films were completely unwatchable. My screen began flickering 1/2way through a film."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. It was a long flight and they kept bringing us drinks and snacks for 10+ hours."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and the flight crew and attendants were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seats were so close that we felt like cordwood stacked vertically. There wasn't elbow roon to butter my roll without elbowing the person in the next seat. The food was boring. It was very cold, despite my dressing warmly. It was a relief to board our next flight, which was JetBlue."
Pros: "I was feeling very comfortable, the hospitality was excellent, the flight was great Thanks very much on everyone"
Pros: "It was a new plane."
Cons: "Flight was operated by IBERIA. I had to seat separately from my husband as IBERIA charges $45 for selecting the seat."
Pros: "Liked the upgrade seat"
Cons: "Food was aweful both the dinner and the breakfast the following morning ."
Pros: "Movie selection was excellent."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and tight quarters. First class was too expensive."
Cons: "Outdated entertainment system. Furthermore, little selection of movies to see--for instance, the "international" movie selection included only two episodes of Foyles War and nothing else. Is this a joke?"
Pros: "A Good Deal,but when.we arrived in Miami there was not any finner counter,when to BA anf6 then we found the flight"
Cons: "Delayed 5+ hours. Aircraft was changed to a smaller plane than we booked."
Pros: "direct flight"
Cons: "There was a lack of air and no possibility for individual airing your seat, during our flight we had to stand in the back because we were almost passing out of overheating 30 Celsius plus heat in our row. We asked for a cooler temperature and only the last 20 minutes it started cooling but then to ice cold. My audio was not working properly, at max it was still unclear. We have had better flight experiences."
Pros: "Very friendly plenty of room on a 90% full flight."
Cons: "Wished they had offered water during the flight in addition to two times drinks service was offered"
Pros: "We took of and landed on time."
Cons: "We hit significant turbulence. The captain did nothing to reassure us and did not even instruct us to remain in our seats with seat belts fastened. Extremely unprofessional and uncaring. Very old plane with screens for movies overhead in the aisles every 10 or 12 rows. First movie was a Disney cartoon for children. Second was a movie that was for adolescent girls. Then we had a terrible cable tv show. Finally they put on "American Hustle" which was about 10 minutes from the end when we landed. Did they give any thought at all to this? Plane was extremely crowded. Very little leg room. I booked this flight on Finnair after checking their ontime and safety record. The carrier was American. I think you should know who the carrier is BEFORE you book and pay for the flight. There are some airlines I prefer not to use and there are some airlines that I would NEVER use. This is a really serious lack of relevent information."
Cons: "Why is it called fin air??? It was and is American Airlines"
Pros: "On-time dep./arr. luggage arrival"
Cons: "Poor, old tech seats wired-remote in armrest uncomfortable in general inadvertent pressing volume, channel poor quality video screen poor movie/music choices reading lights mis-aimed got used to bad food a long time ago. (above applies to east and westbound flight) flight back from Milan to JFK /very cold cabin temperature (westbound"
Pros: "Even though the flight was late, we arrived in good time. Everything was great otherwise."
Cons: "The flight was an hour late."
