I second that. Wish they'd fly it to GVA instead of the 170, however AY's 170 are beautiful machines aswell. I was thinking of flying through GVA on my next Finland trip just to hop on an AY Embraer  Silly

Thanks Andaman,

Any idea of the seat pitch they are using, and other internal configuration options ?

Here is Finnair's press release. Hopefully the link works.

First routes will be to Copenhagen, Vaasa, Oulu, Moscow, Gothenburg and Kajaani. When the second one arrives at least Brussels will be added.

There seems to be no plans for EMB-190 to GVA, although in winter months on Saturdays some A32S will be flown too.

AY serves MAN all the time, currently with E-170s, if that was your question.  Smile
