Finnair inflight bar & drinks

Finnair have scrapped free drinks on all services. Wine, beer & spirits, are free on standard flights. On "leisure" flights beer costs 2.50, wine is 3.50, shots 4.00, and sparkling wine 7.00.

All wine in economy comes in 187ml bottles. On 757s the drink selection is very limited due to the poor ammount of space onboard. Even tea and coffee cost 2.30, while cans of Pepsi are 1.60. Wine is 3.90 Sparkling Wine 8, Beer 3.90 Spirits (G+T/Vodka/Whisky/Rum) 3.30.

Indeed, forget the delights of a free bar in the sky; drinking on Finnair can be ruinously expensive. Accordinly you might want to scan some of the special deals that Finnair offer. One good one is to get 2 beers or 2 wines for 7. This saves 80 pence: small fry, but worth it in the long run.

Sparkling Wine Joseph Perrier Brut Finnair inflight drinks

Sparkling Wine Joseph Perrier Brut

Great Sparkling Wine
A really good Sparkling Wine, its pricey on the ground... so you might as well get the benefits of paying a fortune for your ticket, and enjoy this proper French stuff from Reimes.

The Sparkling Wine Joseph Perrier comes in a bottle short haul, but it is served for you long-haul.

Kavaklidere Narince

Finnair inflight drinks White

As a result of this change, this Turkish White has a less oaky taste, fresh and alive acidity and a slightly creamy touch.

If you like Chardonnay, you will like Narince 2008, which is a welcome introduction to the Turkish Wine scene.

Doluca Karma Merlot Bogzkere

Finnair inflight drinks Red
Perhaps not quite such a good choice, the Turkish Merlot has a decidely brick colour at the rim, perhaps due to the twelve months it spent in French oak. There is plummy black fruit behind, with a good palate, but it is very strong on the nose, serious and big.

If you like your Merlots to be acidic, rustic and not mellow at all, this is the one for you, but for a wine claiming to be 'premium' in business class, there are better options.

Spanish Torres Vina Sol

Spanish nectar

This is a fine vintage. Although the Torres Wines are better known for their reds, this has a chalky melon (Ogen) and good citrus balance.

French La Roche Chardonnay

A Picture of Finnair Wine French full bodied chardonnay

Very much a classic French chardonnay from the Burgundy region, even the label gives the game away that this is wine of the old school.

A stylish and refined Chardonnay, with subtle toasty aromas and a touch of oak. The flavour is nicely balanced with creamy pineapple fruit and a nutty finish. It has a good nose, and a very strong aftertaste. This wine goes well with Finnair's noodles.

Raimat Abadia

From Catalonia, in Spain.

Rich, oaky nose. Full-bodied, strong yet fairly smooth. For lamb, game and aromatic meat dishes, such as the Finnair breakfasts.
