Fly Me Away...

Another one of my jaunts to Finland, and unfortunately British Airways didn't offer me the best price.  That's no great problem because the national flag carrier, Finnair is pretty good value.  Over the years I've used many airlines including some of the low cost carriers such as Ryanair, EazyJet and FlyBe.  I have no issues with these outfits as they have their uses, but I dislike the pricing model where luggage, check-in, food on board etc are seen as extras.  I was disappointed last time with Finnair to find that they had reduced the food offering down to a sandwich however for an extra £8 or so I could buy the meal 'perk' back.  I also saw that they were doing some hand luggage only deals which reminded me of the low cost cowboys.
