Finnair's Love Affair With MD11 Coming To End?

Mon Sep 24, 2007 7:10 pm

I hate to say this but is the A340 becoming 'flavour of the month' at AY? How are the A340s settling in and how do they compare to the capability of the MD11 on AYs route network?

Id hate to think the MD11 is now second favourite with Finnair after they were passionate about them for so long!!

That was unfortunately inevitable from the day the MD-11 went out of production. Frankly, even though I love it, I'll still prefer having the better entertainment system on the modern Airbuses.

As for how they're settling in, I recall reading that so far the MD-11 actually has a higher utilization rate. Can someone confirm?

Finnair stayed loyal to the MD11 long after it ended production though. Now the 'new kid' 340 is pushing the MD11 out and that makes me sad.

And from 2009 they will start geting A333's. And then in 2014? A350's  Smile
