They are doing a one stop in Helsinki for £511 .00

As opposed to cheapest direct Eva £588.00.

9 times out of 10 I fly direct Eva or Thai as I don't mind paying the extra as I can get a bus 15 minutes to Heathrow and am only saving £70.00.................... but that converts to 3k plus baht !!

 so am seriously considering this for my next flight in Sept.

All for saving the sovreigns, but 70 quid is a fine line between love and hate, eva fly out of LHR as well so that is not a decider? Depends what the transit time to me ..any more than 2hrs then eva all the way for me!

Cheers for the quick reply Sleuth.

 

Transit times pretty good one hr 20 mins.

Am just trying to weigh up weather it is really worth it. This is my first trip out since buying a one bed condo in Jontiem so am trying to see what  small things here and there I can save.

Also need some feedback on Finn air....................are they any good ?

I would be interested to hear some info on Finn Air from BKK or SIngapore to Helsinki (stopover).  WHats the airline like?  Decent planes?  Good service?  Helisinki Airport like?  Decent play to stopover?  Good shops?

 

I just flew to Norway via AMS, but the other options were Finn Air, stop over in Helisinki.

Helsinki is a small airport so always a short walk to next gate.

 

Finnair is ok. Plane for BKK route is no so old A330 and A340. Food not so good. Only drinks when food is served. I think you can no longer choose your seat when you make the reservation.

One morning I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas, I don't know

I'm frequent on Finnair. Planes are fine. They have one old A340 from the 90s if youre unlucky but most of them are new.

Drinks (wine/beer) are free only during the first meal. You can buy them of course throughout the flight.

There is a fee on choosing your seat before check-in. Exit-row seats and other "good seats" cost more.

Food.. well I've never enjoyed airline food on any carrier.

 

IMHO Helsinki airport is one of the best. Very modern and convient, plenty of shops and restaurants. Short transfer walks as mentioned above.

Finnair are fine but if you like to choose your seat and like a beer or three on the flight then your £70 saving will be a lot smaller. Of course any money spent in Helsinki airport has to come out of this saving too.

I've done stopovers as short as 45mins in Helsinki airport without any problem.

Thanks for all your replies.

Looks like Finnair is an ok airline and I may use them in the future,,as for this trip , I think I will stick with EVA.

 

Changing subject, does anyone know why Thai are so expensive at the moment ? have they upgraded there planes ?

Normally EVA and THAI are very competitive with each other and I generally prefer to fly with THAI  but EVA is £588 and THAI is £670.

Your holiday is 11 hours longer if you fly back on Thai or Eva.

 

Cabin crew are a lot uglier on Finnair than Eva or Thai, also as you get off the plane in Helsinki to transit to London in winter you get a blast of icy air which helpfully gets you in the mood for English winter hell.

All very good points !! I suppose this topic is not just about Finnair but weather it's a real saving to take in- direct flights . Like I said never been an issue before but as I head towards retirement it's all about cutting costs .

However, flight time is shorter on the long leg as Finnair take a shorter routing to BKK.
