After spending a few hours in the Finnair Premium Lounge, I thought I'd also visit the Finnair Business Lounge-Schengen in the Shengen area which is where my flight was actually flying from. Then, it was time to head to the gate.
As soon as we were all seated in the cabin, one of the flight attendants offered to hang our coats which was followed by offering of newspapers but unfortunately, they didn't have any English newspapers. We were also offered some pillows and blankets.
The flight went smoothly and before I knew it, we were starting our descent to Stockholm Arlanda Airport.
Just like the flight from Paris, this flight went very well. The crew were extra friendly and the meal tasted very good. Overall, a very nice flight.
