Economy Class, Finnair, Oneworld

How is Finnair economy class in Europe?

On European flights, Finnair flies mostly small aircrafts. The only difference is that on some routes to London and Amsterdam, Finnair does fly their wide-body aircraft in which case you will have more space and an entertainment system. Otherwise, your experience will be as described here.

Aegean Airlines, Business Class, Star Alliance

Aegean business class – is it that much better than their economy?

Aegean sets rather high standards for economy class service in Europe, and after experiencing what they had to offer, I got curious about their business class. Aegean offers a business class bidding program where you can name your price and if nobody bids higher, you will get an upgrade for the price you named. I went with the lowest allowed bid of 70€ and got my upgrade. 😁

Aegean Airlines, Economy Class, Star Alliance

Aegean economy class – a pleasant surprise

I don’t usually fly non-Oneworld airlines because of my Finnair Plus status, but this time Finnair didn’t fly to Athens at all, so the only option was to fly a connecting flight with Aegean airlines. I didn’t know what to expect from an airline that doesn’t even have any long haul flights. The only thing I knew about it was that it was part of Star Alliance and, apparently, the easiest way to reach a Star Alliance gold level.
