Yeah I've heard they're doing pretty well on the Asian routes, they're going to operate a sixth MD11 for these operations. Good to know things are going well for them.

Does anyone know why Finnair is still not fitting its MD-11 fleet with PTVs in all classes ? I believe that most long-hauls in Europe have PTVs in all classes in at least some of the fleet ..

lemme see - AF , BA , KL , OS ...

I guess they are waiting for when the M11's will be replaced, in a couple of years time.

Dunno, but they just re-newed the planes few years back. What comes with the new planes, there have been rumours about A330s, that would be the most obvious option anyway since Finnair is going (mainly?) Airbus.
