Awww, how cute that thread is on Twitter! Such lovely oneliners, no need to reason, thanks to the medium. <3

"Sanattomaksi vetää."
Makes one speechless.

"Todella. Kuulostaa lapselliselta itsekkyydeltä. Mutta kyseessä aikuiset ihmiset. Järkkyä."
True. Sounds like childish selfishness. But it's about adults. Ghastly.

No worries, chaps, you did well, considering how media can be and the quality of journalism has gone down. What you now see panning out, is what modern media can cause in the audience. This is the very reason why I rather not say anyone I might actually be a pretty avid airline connoisseur, even if it'd be just social media.

As for the Twitter commentators, let's put it this way: based on their profiles and other tweets, I wouldn't worry about being verbally flogged by them and alikes. They don't exactly seem to be the type of women I'd ever spend my valuable time with - not to mention my dear FFP award points.

Just one thought for any AY+ Platinum or Platinum Lumo (or could be BAEC GGL etc. as well) cardholder: if you want to make mankind slightly better during your next membership year, you can always send one of the complimentary cards to one of the distinguished and valuable Twitter commentators as a comforting "thank you" gift.

Just want to inform you that google translate FIN->SWE (while failing to translate it as a single word) had no problem translating within context provided by the article. Google had two varieties though, it first called you Hen-burglary but then went on calling you chicken-nut (as in "mutteri")

I expected worse to be honest.

Its something for people who think theyre are influencers of some sort, or think that someone actually gives a *uck what they say.

It was QUITE amusing to watch. Back then if memory serves me correctly he was staying at the PARK INN Tallinn 😁😁😁😁

Maybe Yle could do A documentary too 😏

Perhaps blur faces and change voices like they do on American true crime shows 😂😂

Finally got to read this on today's flight. An interesting choice of main pic on page D4...

Did you meet the two other FTers mentioned in the article by chance, or was it arranged? If by chance, I wonder what the reporter was thinking – it's as if half the lounge were FT idiots
