Finnair Business Class
Finnair’s A350-900 business class receives some fairly good reviews. Seats are arranged in a 1-2-1 pattern that gives direct aisle access to every seat. Said seats are fully reclinable to a lie-flat-position. The cabin is kept in grey and white colors to reflect the airlines’ corporate color scheme. Some reviews critize this as sterile.
While not reaching the luxury heights of Qatar Airways’ or Emirates’ premium cabin, Finnair still offers one of Europe’s superior business class products. You can read a more comprehensive review here.
