On this not exactly Blue1 cheap flight (where you don't expect much) the service was terrible. We had two very small children with us and we didn't get anything for them (no greeting, no good seats, no extra-treatment) like we got at other airlines of the same price range and although it was a lunchtime flight (12-15pm) there wa...

HEL-OSL. Check-in was rude and dismissive but otherwise the flight had very nice crew and the plane was spotless clean as well. BOB meal is cheaper on Blue1 than on SAS due to the currency and I found the quality to be rather reasonable as well. On-time departure and arrival in Oslo. Ticket price was great as usual.

HEL-BLQ-HEL. Check-in in Helsinki was awful. We already had the boarding passes printed but before proceeding to baggage drop we had to queue at the self service check-in kiosk for the baggage tags. So why do they have check-in online in first place? The queue for the baggage drop starts right next to the check-in kiosks the dep...

HEL-ARN a very full flight operated by Golden Air for Blue1 (frequent airplane substitution). Economy Extra is at the back at the plane upon boarding. Seat comfort and space is poor even for Economy. I enjoyed the cheerful service and the nice fresh meal. Flight departed and arrived with a slight delay. This is nevertheless abou...

BLQ-HEL which they fly 2 weekly during the summer. A bit of a random route but the flight was full due to very cheap fares. I got in on an OW for $107 incl. all taxes. Flight departed about 35 minutes late and a little time was made up en route. Plane was spotless-clean with Blue1's new seats. Service was generally OK but everyt...

Flew Stockholm to Helsinki. Booked a business class flight through Eurobonus miles to find that there is in fact no business class and was in fact in premium economy. The difference between this and economy on the 40 minute hop comprises a glass of wine or a beer. All pretty disappointing. The plane was on time I guess.

ARN-HEL on the standard B717. Clean and airy cabin legroom fine for such a short hop. Coffee/tea served for free. Courteous FA's gave out a stuffed toy for the baby in our party and took extra care explaining how the infant's seatbelt worked. Bags were on the belt in minutes at HEL.

HEL-MUC on tired MD 87. Took the Internet upgrade opportunity for 4900€ to "Premium Economy". Worth it on ground service (Quick check-in Fast Track at Security) as Economy Pax had a long queue for both. The SAS Lounge in Helsinki very basic. Cabin crew friendly nice breakfast. However no English newspapers available and no comme...

HEL-CPH-HEL. HEL-CPH on Avro RJ85 on-time both ways. Clean aircraft crew and service are nothing special but seats comfortable and spacious in the 3x2 configuration. CPH-HEL on B71 food for purchase in both directions drinks free. In general this is competitive to SAS on the same sector but definitely a low-cost feel without a p...

Premium cabin on new 717s provides access to seating in the front of the aircraft and a meal service. Value for money is okay - the fare and upgrade charge were significantly lower than for other full service airlines. If you are a Star Gold customer this is simply not worth it as you already have access to the SAS lounges. LHR-...

LHR-HEL-LHR on MD90. Good friendly service each way. Flight out I was expecting to pay for food but had free breakfast tea/coffee ham roll and some chocolates. Free top ups of tea and water offered later in the flight. Seats with good pitch and comfortable. On way back had to pay for food but expected.

Helsinki - London. Boarding in HEL very disorganised with our flight boarding and another arriving in the same tiny area at gate 11/12. With nearly 150 pax waiting to board at about 5 pax a minute being checked (there was just one very flustered woman checked boarding cards/visas etc) so boarding took a while. MD90 was old but o...

Oslo-Helsinki economy. Flight landed a few minutes ahead of schedule. Friendly and helpful cabin attendants. Coffee tea or water included in the fare. Bought a delicious sandwich for EUR 4.50. Comfortable flight on my favorite type of aircraft - the quiet but rare MD90. My first flight on Blue1 but hopefully not the last.

HEL-ARN and back. Both legs were RJ85's but first plane was configured 3-3 and the second 3-2. I suspect they are changing to 3-3 to pack in more seats which means I will never fly with them again. 3-3 seat config was terrible (and this was row 2 in economy extra). Seats incredibly narrow and pitch very tight. Return flight in 3...

CPH-HEL in economy class. I have always been a Blue1 fan but after this trip I am not so sure anymore. The flights departed and arrived on time which is probably what you can expect from an airline these days. I think what really bothered me is that it was so uncomfortable on both flights (AVRO-85). Although I have flown CPH-HEL...

Have flown many times with Blue1 and cabin crew very helpful and friendly. The planes are good standard with good leg room. In addition the check-in routines are fast and efficient no matter how you do it.

LHR-HEL return. Aircraft an ex SAS MD90. Aircraft and cabin interior was clean and tidy although a little dated seat pitch was good. Flight attendants friendly and information from the flight crew was good. Only tea coffee is free on board - food has to be purchased. Flight to HEL was on time return to LHR was one hour late. Ove...

HEL-RVN-HEL MD-90. The plane was new clean and with large seats. The crew was very professional and polite. Either in Helsinki and Rovaniemi we arrived ahead of scheduled. I recommend this airline even if sometimes the fares are not really low-cost.
