How Is AY's Long-haul Service?

Thu Jan 31, 2002 10:28 pm

I will probably fly the route MXP-HEL-BKK on AY economy class in April. I'm now wondering how their service is on long-haul flights.

Thank you for any information

I'm afraid it isn't the same quality you could get from other European Carriers  Sad.

shorthaul was great, longhaul a bit disappointing.

On my trip from SIN-BGK-HEL, I had this bad luck to
see bad drunk guys hassling all women including my
girlfriend in the cabin...The FA's were so clever that
they went on pouring alcohol in their glasses untill
they were all "dead"....Quality is average but Helsinki
Airport is pretty nice. Prices are quite okay on this
south-east asian destinations but I would definitely
take SQ or MAS for little bit more extra money...

thank you for yor replies. Are all MD-11's configured with the new economy class seats throughout the hole aircraft (not just the front section)? How is the legroom?

Also, I flew SIN-BKK-HEL, and while I love Finnair, i was very dissapointed. Old OH-LGB is a grand aircraft, but don't expect a meal-choice and the entertainment sucks, apart from the safety video, which i really loved.
