Finnair's A350-900 in Business Class (Helsinki - Bangkok) & "The Laptop Incident"

Sat May 20, 2017 4:02 am

Hi All,

Earlier this month, I had a chance to fly with Finnair in business class from Helsinki to Bangkok. As the A350 flight was quite nice and enjoyable, I thought I would share it here with you as well.

You can read the full report on the following page:

Full report: https://www.knaviation.net/review-finna ... k-business

A selection of eight pictures to tell you the overall story follows.

1. The New Finnair’s Flagship

Currently, Finnair operates 8 A350s. My flight was operated by OH-LWH - the latest one in the fleet. The aircraft was delivered on April 4, 2017 - one month before my flight on May 5, 2017.

2. Economy Comfort and Economy Class

Each of Finnair’s A350s is equipped with 251 economy class seats of which 43 are in the forward “Economy Comfort” section featuring extra 4 inches of seat pitch compared to regular economy.

Image

3. Business Class

The aircraft’s business class features 46 reverse herringbone seats split into two cabins - first with 8 rows and the second one with 4 rows. I was seated in 12L - a right-hand-side window seat in the very last row.

4. Helsinki Vantaa Airport

After taking off from runway 22R, we were offered a great view of Helsinki’s airport and its surroundings.

Image

5. The Laptop Incident

On take-off, my laptop slid under my seat. With the help of the excellent crew, and a fellow passenger, we got it out a couple of hours into the flight. Thanks!

Image

6. Dinner Service

Shortly after take-off, a dinner was served. I had a salmon starter and a poached pike-perch main followed by an ice cream.

Image

7. IFE System

The in-flight entertainment system was quite simple, but the touchscreen was very responsive. Plus, there was a pretty nice flight overview title screen as shown below.

Image

8. Breakfast Service

Before landing, a breakfast was served. The order was taken after the dinner service in the form of a breakfast card. Like the dinner, the breakfast was great - and there was more than plenty of food.

Best regards,
Keishi

Looks like a very nice cabin. I liked the light grey and green combination. Very subtle yet classy.
Glad your laptop was alright, although I could not figure out which part of the seat did it slid under?
Thanks for the report. hopefully i get to travel on Finnair and/or the A350 some day in the future.

Thanks for your comment - I hope to never repeat the "laptop incident." :D At one point, the crew mentioned that if we couldn't get it out, the mechanics in BKK would...

Glad you enjoyed the report. I really like their cabin as well - it's not over the top, just simple and functional!

The whole reverse herringbone seat. I was in the last row, so it was just a single seat. And under the seat there was about a 1.5cm gap that was just "perfect" for my laptop to slide under.

Thanks for the correction - fixed the report. :) In either case, the ice cream was good! :D
