14:35 OH-LPC (MD-83)
boarding to the flight went pretty quick and we took off in schedule to Varna Bulgaria.My seat was in the back of the plane so the engine noise was quite loud but not too bad.my seat had seen its days it was somehow loosen..but the aircraft seemed to be pretty nice all tough.about hour later the meal was served elk steak,slice potatoes,salad?,bread and very dilicious dessert sliced apples in vanilla sauce very good!!the flight had some minor turbulence we where flying over Belarus and Latvia to mention some countrys.the landing was smooth to Varna and we where 20minutes before schedule.Varna airport is not so nice taxiways are bad condition and runway as well.i imagine concorde would never land there!
came to Varna 2hours before departure and did go thru check-in and security check....there was the nicest passport control man i never seen very much friendly!(they never are in Helsinki).supprise to me was that we got to the plane 50minutes before departure and the plane left before 19.00 about 20minutes before this was because its charter flight so i see they dont have so strict schedules.capt.Junttila welcommed us on board nice name he had (u probably dont understand the little humour if not finnish).okey but we tookoff from the bumby runway and headed to Helsinki-Vantaa.i got the seat in front section and it had bigger seat pitch than the back of plane the seats where very good allmost like new ones!the dinner was this time lindstroms steak with mash potatoes,salad,finnish ruisbread and delicious cake.the food was the best i never had with Finnair.i like homemade cooking.the amazing part was that we landed 50minutes before the arrival time so the flight lasted 2.30h usually 3.20h!!very smooth landing good md80 pilots AY has cabin crew for both flights was the best ever in my flights with Finnair!thats it hope u enjoyed!
