Finnair has recently upgraded their business class cabin to one that’s more clean and minimalist by changing out the interior colors, pillows, blankets, plates and glasses, and amenity kits.
Similar to that of Lufthansa’s Business Class, Finnair’s new cabin interior portrays Northern European nature. According to the Head of Cabin Interior Development at Finnair, David Kondo, their “new seat textiles and comfort amenities have a fresh and modern aesthetic that is inspired by Nordic homes and landscapes”. From the soft white that represents snow, to the mix of grey and off white that depict birch trees, the new cabin is as refreshing as a morning hike in the mountains.
It seems that more and more airlines are upgrading and opening new lounges around the world quicker than ever before—from Qantas’ new Heathrow and Melbourne lounges, Virgin Australia’s lounge in Hong Kong, to Air New Zealand’s lounge in Melbourne Airport, and United Polaris Lounge in Chicago.
The more recent ones are Korean Air’s first class, business class, and frequent flyer lounges located in Incheon International Airport, Terminal 2. They have been strategically built and positioned inside the terminal to allow travelers to check in, pass through security, and board seamlessly and efficiently.
And the best part? Each upper class gets its own special area for the best traveler experience. Let’s take a look at each one a little more closely.
