For example, Business is the fanciest option—that’ll get you a seat up front, lounge access, priority airport service, fully refundable fares, and like, double Finnair Plus points. After that the included perks go downhill with the most basic option being Saver, which gets you a non-changeable and non-refundable seat, a checked bag, and a meal or beverage depending on the route.
In total the new options—from great to not so great are—Business, Business Saver, Pro, Value, Basic and Saver. We like to think of them as Extra Spicy, Spicy, Bold, Mild, Original and Low Sodium. To us the jury is still out on if this is a good idea or not, but plenty of carriers are doing similar stuff.
Next, once you figure out all those ticket options and book, it does get a little bit easier.. Just like British Airways, Finnair is ready to check you in for your flight automagically. Starting November 28, the carrier will check-in passengers and zap over a boarding pass right to their mobile phones—slick. If you didn’t already pick a seat you’ll be assigned one, but it sounds like they’ll build in a link for you to switch things up. Thanks, Finnair.
