Around 9:25am, we started our push back. Newspapers were also offered. About 11 minutes later, we returned to the gate and the captain came on the PA to inform us that it was due to technical reason, and that he'll get back later with more information. Around 9:53am, the captain was back on the PA to inform us that the problem had been solved and thanked the passengers for their understanding. Six minutes later, we started our pushback and 14 minutes later, we had a smooth take off.
Moments after the seat belt sign was turned off, hot towels and menu cards were offered.
Moments later, drink orders were taken.
Landing at Stockholm Arlanda Airport
Around 11:27am, the captain came on the PA to give us some updated flight information.
I've taken this same flight a lot of times in the past and just like the previous times, the crew were friendly and the DO&CO catering service was great. The delay due to technical reason was something that could not be avoided and luckily, it was solved rather quickly. The seats are real business class seats and not just economy seats with the middle being blocked. Of course, Finnair using their A350 flying between Helsinki and London Heathrow still has the best business class seat intra-Europe and Turkish Airlines is number two 😉 Overall, a very nice flight.
