BA And Helsinki

Mon Oct 30, 2006 10:10 am

Does BA continue to serve Helsinki? My friend is trying to book a NYC-HEL roundtrip with them and all that comes up for the LHR-HEL-LHR legs is BA Codeshare operated by AY. If they stopped, when did they do so?

Thanks!

There are two BA LHR-HEL flights a day, one late morning and one early evening departure. BA794 departs LHR at 1220 hours and arrives HEL at 1715 hours local time. BA798 departs LHR 1825 hours and arrives HEL 2310 local. It may be that these did not show up because they are not convenient connections for your friend's NYC-LHR flight.

By the way the timing of the lunchtime flight changed this weekend. It was previously scheduled to depart an hour earlier at 1120 hours.

It is also supposed to be a 757 most of the times.

There are six daily departures from LHR to HEL, two BA, four AY. They are both in OW, so the miles are saved anyway.

That's exactly what he meant, one of the flights will be a B757 now in the winter schedule.
AY and ANA rock!

According to the BA electronic timetable the morning flight was a 752 in the summer schedules but in the winter schedules both flights are 320s.

HEL had some B757 in the late summer.
Now that Winter has started BA794 is a B757 except Fri/Sat when it is an A320
The BA798 is always an A319/320.

Why doesn't your friend fly AY nonstop JFK-HEL....?? MD-11s won't be flying around forever, enjoy 'em while you can!  Smile

Is AY blocking out their own business pax so they can make room for those flying on BA number???

I recently booked flights between LHR and HEL for 2007.

Lunchtime departure from LHR in March is operated by an A320, as is the early morning departure from HEL in April.

I'm guessing my outbound flight is on the winter timetable and my inbound flight is the summer timetable.
Next flights: LGW-LBA-LGW, LHR-SIN-SYD, SYD-BKK-LHR, LGW-GRO, GRO-CIA, CIA-MAD, MAD-LGW

According to Amadeus:

British Airways
BA 794
Heathrow (LHR), London, United Kingdom
Terminal 1 11:20

Helsinki-Vantaa (HEL), Helsinki, Finland
Terminal 2 16:20
Non-stop / 757 3h00min


This is for a Sunday in December and my ticket also says 757. But according to the daily timetable, BA794 should be EQV.

my patner is in HEL at the moment as flight crew, he's on the A320 family, so yes BA still fly to HEL and there is at least one airbus flight per day!
