Finnair’s crew shortage hits schedules

Airline to suspend Miami route for summer 2017
Once again, Finnair is having to make major changes to its future schedules because of a temporary shortage of crew and aircraft.
The flag carrier says it will suspend flights between Helsinki and Miami from May 4 to September 29 and will also cancel two of its weekly frequencies on its Helsinki-Chicago route during the month of May.
Flights to Miami will resume on October 1 with three weekly frequencies.
“We are very sorry about the disruption this is causing our customers, and we are doing our best to offer suitable alternative routings for them,” says Juha Järvinen, chief commercial officer at Finnair.
“We are contacting all customers with bookings on the affected flights to offer an alternative routing. In case a suitable alternative routing cannot be found, customers may apply for a ticket refund.”
Finnair is continuing to offer Miami as a destination throughout the summer with its oneworld business partners American Airlines, British Airways and Iberia.
