Our friends at Finnair invited us to spend some time with them in Helsinki recently. It was a great opportunity to catch up on the Finnair pre-order meals range and get a taste of what’s being served inflight.

In 2013, the airline started selling pre-order meals to customers in economy class wishing to eat something a little more substantial on flights across Europe.

HOW TO ORDER

Meals can be booked at the time of making your reservation or you can always head over to their website at least 72 hours before your flight and place your order.

The meals cost €10 each and you can choose from: Salmon Salad, Enchilada with Tomato Sauce, Beef Burgundy, Pasta Bolognese and Chicken Korma.

WHAT DID WE ORDER?

We ordered the salmon salad!

WHAT WAS GOOD

It felt like there was about half a kilo of salmon in this salad! The quality and quantity of the salmon was fantastic and the salad itself is quite a large meal portion. Oh and the free sandwich that everyone else got was super delicious too.

NOT SO GOOD

Some may complain about the pricing for this salad and yes we sort of agree with you. However, you have to understand that everything in Finland is generally a little more expensive than other places in Europe. Plus there’s seriously so much salmon in that salad!

TAKE NOTE

You can only order these meals on scheduled flights operated by Finnair or Flybe within Europe, excluding flights within Finland, and to or from Stockholm, St. Petersburg, Dubai, Canary Islands, Tallinn, Riga and Vilnius, and flights from Madrid to Helsinki.
