Finnair puts full-flat seats on all long-haul

New full-flat seats on most long-haul planes during 2014

Finnair says it is installing new full-flat seats on most of its long-haul aircraft during 2014. From April 1 the new seats will be in use on aircraft flying to Tokyo and New York, and from May 1 also on flights to Beijing and Seoul.

From June 1, the full-flat seats will also be available on flights to Hanoi, Hong Kong, Nagoya, Osaka and Shanghai.

The new seats are a result of a €29 million program to retrofit most of the airline’s wide-body fleet of A330s and A340s. The Zodiac UK Vantage model seats are already in use on Finnair’s four newest A330s.

After the full-flat retrofit program is complete, all of the airline’s long-haul Airbus fleet will have full-flat seats in Business Class with the exception of three older aircraft. But due to maintenance or other technical reasons, designated full-flat routes may still be served by older aircraft featuring angled lie-flat seating in Business Class.
