Flying Finnair

August 2, 2013

We recently flew Finnair from Tokyo to Barcelona, via Helsinki, and loved it. We flew over the top of the world – the Arctic Circle! The food was great, and different to what we’re used to. A short stopover in the Helsinki Airport made me want to go back and see the city. One day perhaps!

I gave my camera to the Captain and asked him to take a photo for me from the cockpit, hoping that he would invite me up there, but no such luck!

I liked the look of this Norwegian Air plane.

    I always fly Finnair…it’s great! You should stop in Helsinki. It is full of gorgeous Art Nouveau buildings (with a Nordic twist), great shopping, interesting restaurants and friendly people…what more could you want?

    Mary nice memories re a wait for Fin air to take us up over gorgeous northern waterways below on our way from Helsinki to Norway. Looked down trying to spot habitation on the islands below. Tiny white specs of whitish craft anchored in obscure wee harbours. Sun sparkling on the slim water ways. Had almost forgotten.

      Oh you’re so lucky to have been to Helsinki Denise – I hope we get there someday instead of just passing through the airport!
