Time for another quick snapshot with Finnair as I explore the short-haul European service.
Check in is handled from Zone E at Heathrow Terminal 3. Boarding passes for both the outbound and inbound segments were printed off here (a little time-saver for later).
Side note: Why can’t other airlines have a pretty boarding passes as Finnair?
Security was done through the Fast Track lane at Terminal 3. I was the first customer of the day, so Fast Track was – very fast!
See my update from last week at the Cathay Pacific Lounge. A lot more polish has been applied to an already good lounge
Boarding was from Gate 29. Priority boarding was enforced.
It was an Airbus A319 that would do the honours at AY3126 between London and Helsinki that morning.
Standard Eurobusiness seating was installed, with the middle seat free.
There was a delay of 45 minutes due to an engineering issue. Additional time was spent being de-iced. Otherwise, it was a pleasant 2 hour 30 flight to Helsinki with minimal bumps.

The on-board catering this morning was a breakfast service… seemingly a bit more substantial for the hot item than the flight in December. Bubbles and other beverages were on offer.
Fruit and Yogurt were also on the tray.
In Flight Entertainment consisted of the map, and the views outside.
The full AY3126 review soon in “Let’s Tallinn that again!”
