Very uncomfortable. Laughably terrible entertainment system which reminded me of the 90s as it kept crashing and had without question the worst selection of movies I have come across on an airline for about a decade. Seat needed a lot of TLC and I left feeling sorry for my company as they had paid for the ticket! I also realised I'd rather fly economy on several other airlines than put up with 11 hours each way again on another Finnair business class flight.

I find the business class on Finnair A340 not really good. It's just an average business class, not in line at all with today's standards. It will luckily be upgraded in 2014. The personal TV is almost worse than in economy and the software is a joke. It crashes all the time. Film selection not good. Service very cold. Food just average.

I flew Finnair as it was the best connection from Australia. Unfortunately the business class is not up to the industry standard. The seats did not fully recline to a flat position and the privacy was poor. I am 190 cm and the leg room was okay - but this was not a flat bed seat. The staff were friendly enough but the food standards and options were below par.

JFK-HEL, A330. Great and attentive service (business class only 1/3 full). Seat didn't recline to fully lie-flat ; while good for sitting it wasn't good for sleeping. Cabin also too hot for my liking. Helsinki is a great airport for transferring to other European destinations. Finnair lounge was nice.

JFK/HEL. Had 2L, one of the single seats. Relatively comfortable fully flat bed, but at 6'3" with big feet I felt a bit hemmed in at the foot end. Night-time cabin temperature was too hot for my liking. Mediocre food. Professional, efficient cabin service. Amenity kit only contained socks, ear plugs and eye mask - no toothbrush or lotions.

Seat did not lie flat and the angle was rather acute. Pillows, blankets provided great as was the nose reduction headphone. Finnair needs to upgrade their business seats soon to remain competitive.

HEL-BKK. New seats are comfortable 180 degree lay flat. Plenty of space for me even despite being 6'4" tall. However, food and inflight entertainment a very, very long way short of a business class experience. In short, if you want to stretch out and sleep in a comfortable seat then great, if you want the rest of the business class bells and whistles, look elsewhere.

Only reason why I fly Finnair is the fact that you save time coming from Australia. Finnair Business class does not compare with other airlines and is overpriced. Perhaps it's time to upgrade the seats!

I flew alone, had a single seat, ie. No seat next to me, which provides privacy. Lie-flat bed only functions if you are less than 180 cm tall. Eat well before flight, food is mediocre, service on board is uncaring (apparently Finnair is constantly in disagreements with trade unions, which probably results in flight attendants' unwillingness to show their best care to passengers). Value for money is not in line with the ticket price.

Quite comfortable lay flat seats with good duvet and pillow for sleeping. The seats are a little narrow but not uncomfortably so. The entertainment system as good as other airlines. The food was acceptable and the cabin crew professional and friendly.

Finnair Business to Tokyo, first leg from UK to Helsinki was a nightmare economy seats with a curtain drawn across, rock hard seats we booked business as we both have disability, inflight entertainment was a mini-screen with subtitled how to make puppets. Helsinki -Tokyo was as advertised, so be warned about the first leg of the journey, I had to rate a 1 as there is no zero.

The cabin has a good spacious feel with individual seats for privacy. Good food service and attentive, experienced cabin crew. This is a good service to use via Helsinki if you want to avoid the main European hubs and with very good onward connections.

Business class cabin with 2-2-1 seating. Flat bed and quite comfortable. I am 6ft 2ins tall and unlike some beds where you can stretch out over the end of the seat this is a confined cabin but that limitation is made up for by comfortable seat and bed settings. It is a bit odd that when lie flat the seat is so low to the ground that the seat shell is therefore rather high relative to you and if you are a little claustrophobic it might bother you.

Newest A330-300 in the fleet with the latest cabin layout (2x2x1). I had seat 2L - one of the single seats. The seat converted to a fully flat bed, which together with a thick blanket and firm pillow, facilitated a good night's sleep. Other improvements include a larger TV screen than on the A340, and a section for storing shoes.

New flatbed configuration on the A330 a big improvement - provided you're not overweight or more than 6' tall. Unique configuration means seats fairly narrow and not a lot of room to maneuver your legs. Seats are not as plush as others and not as many variations in positions, but the seats lie flat and horizontal. Also, almost all seats have direct aisle access without having to climb over anyone.

Some of the niceties of travelling business class are a little lacking. The choice on the entertainment system is probably the most telling indicator of this together with the "not flat" seats. The quality of the food is very good and the staff are helpful without being intrusive. The new lounge at Helsinki airport is a little cold and impersonal but in the normal course of events you may not have time to use it anyway if you are transferring betwen planes. I had the benefit of using the lounge for several hours after a plane delay due to snow at Helsinki airport but since many other European airports had closed completely the sanctuary of the lounge was welcome.

HEL-HKG. The seats are excellent. Business cabin seats 30 passengers. Very good pitch. 16:9 LCD panel for video-on-demand entertainment. Each seat equipped with electric power socket and USB + LAN sockets. Seats could be lie-flat at an incline. Seat back massage airbag available as extra feature. Food is quite good. Service excellent, flight attendants courteous and attentive.

Helsinki - Mumbai. I was positively surprised by Finnair business cabin. After reading this forum I was prepared for the worst. But the seats were good (wider than BA) but did not recline full, the food was excellent, the wine good and the service very good. I would definitely fly this again.
