I am about to head off again to Europe. I always fly Finnair for several reasons. It has been ranked one of the safest in the world and the flight from Hong Kong to Finland is a few hours shorter than flights to other destinations in Europe. On a long haul flight a few hours makes a difference. I always stay in Helsinki on my way to our apartment in Italy, so flying Finnair makes sense.
Finnair was founded in 1923 by Bruno Lucander, making it the 5th oldest ariline in the world with uninterrupted existence. The first flight was in 1924 and went from Helsinki to Tallin with a sea plane. The last seaplane flew in 1936 when the first aerodromes were built in Finland.
I have always found the seats in economy comfortable, the food is good and the crew very friendly and helpful.
I wish to point out here that I am not paid by Finnair, I am just a regular passenger. I have recently joined Finnair Plus, their frequent flyer programme and I hope to be getting benefits any day now.
Having said that, if anyone at Finnair is listening, I am open to upgrades and I would be happy for them to fly me all over Finland so that I can photograph and write nice things about this gorgeous country.
