I was transiting from a Qantas flight from Auckland, I only has a very short connection time, about 2hrs. As I was a Oneworld Emerald member of Finnair. I had priority boarding and only got to go to the Qantas First Auckland Lounge. The Qantas staff helped me through Sydney Airport because I have never been to Sydney before. I had got my baggage sent to my destination Helsinki. So after that I boarded the plane and I got surprise priority fast track for Bangkok. I sat in my seat and the blankets didn't smell good. So I asked to switch my blanket and when I got my new one. It was much better. Apparently our flight was delayed because they had not brought the checked luggage in yet. After taking off I had a good flight.

I booked this row of seats because we are traveling with a ever active 8 month old baby and is where the bassinets are on the A330. We found the seating to be very good ample leg room and was great as we where lucky enough to have a 3rd seat next to us free so when our baby wasn't sleeping we where able to keep her entertained in the 3rd seat 46/e The crew where helpful through out the flight

Excellent flight. No-one sitting front. More than enough leg room for me. I had pre-ordered my meal which was great and service was excellent and being front row of economy - you get served first. Also two windows to look out. The only negative would be that there is no footrest for this seat - the other economy seats have a netting pocket on the back of the seat in front - but during flight I rested my feet on my carry on bag.

Upgraded to business class using my Frequent Flyer points. Excellent service on this route: extremely helpful cabin staff. Travelled with my wife and 2 teenage daughters - all were attentively looked after.
Food excellent - had the set menu but could order a la carte if wanted. Lie-flat sky bed excellent.

Although the seating wasn't to bad and the.
cabin crew excellent, the inflight entertainment was awful for such a long flight.
The screen was the smallest I have ever had in any flight and it was also very dirty and I had to clean it before I could watch it
In the end I listened to music most of the way as watching anything gave me a headache

Amazing Economy Seat! One of the most comfortable I've tried. I couldn't figure it out but it seemed like the seat had more recline than any other economy seat I've tried...and I travel a lot. Food was very basic and so was entertainment, but the seat was so comfortable, I could easily fall asleep. Thoroughly impressed.

The Crew were friendly and helpful during the journey.
Our seats were in economy toward the rear of the aircraft. Seats were quite comfortable for an 8.25 hour flight although would have liked seats further apart and allowed more room to recline for sleeping
The blanket and pillow would be better issued on a needs basis to give passengers more room

Slightly smaller than normal seat as the tray table and IFE unit are both housed in the armrests. Leg room is minimal, due to the bulkhead wall. You can not extend your legs forward. Seat is opposite bassinet seats, and the galley. Overall its poor location to sit.

I was extremely dissapointed inthe very poor entertainment on the flight.Screens where the smallest I have seen foe a long time and choice was very poor for all entertainment. In the end I spent the majority of the 9 hour flight listening to music.
