Finnair recently relaunched their business class and are using the new Contour Vantage seat which is indeed the same as what Swiss use and has enabled Finnair to increase the amount of seats in their business class while also moving to a full flat product. I think it's already on some aircraft and will be replacing the Recaro angled seats.

Yes it has changed. Neither seatguru or Finnair's own seat-selection pictures are accurate. If you want a window seat, for instance, you want to be on an even-numbered row on the right side. Otherwise the actual seat is quite far from the window.

There are three A330s with the new interior. I've flown it a few times now and it is very nice. It is operating daily on the JFK-HEL-JFK route and on selected days on other routes, with BKK-HEL-BKK getting it several days a week. The seats are very nice as beds. Not ideal for sitting, but still an improvement on the angled lie-flats.

Quoting PresRDC (Reply 6): There are three A330s with the new interior.
Yes, plus the 8th A333 coming later this year. Two a/c (OH-LTS, OH-LTT) have smaller Business class cabins than the other ones. I have understood when their booking engine shows "333/A330-300" it means the old seating in C and "330/A330" the new one.
