I am also on board, sitting in the tired old C cabin as well Looks like a late arrival of 2h 46m as of now. Really hoping for a further 15 minute delay...

I was not aware of that, I thought it was the touch-down that counted. Thanks!

The Asian routes hog a lot of planes because they don't run on 24 h rotations anymore. Of the 7 A330's four are in service (3 with the new cabin and 1 with the old).

In case there is a delay which is just slightly over the compensation threshold, it's very easy for the airline to make their way out of it. They just need to show that the extra few minutes were beyond their control.

Asian rotations are 359 and Atlantic is mostly 330 so these 330 delays are caused by lack of 330's and tight schedules.

One more 333 coming next week.

really hope things are better next week for my return flight what happened to OH-LTP . Details anyone?
meanwhile the new.C mealserive is good I think.
Crew also good - even with the AY speciality of smacking the galley locker doors shut really loudly 😉
mini cabin only 5/13 Heard one guy bought a c class UG at the gate for EUR 500

I'm flying on June 6th ORD-HEL and it has been switched to an a350. The tail number is OH-LWM. Is this going to have the new or the old product?

Look for seats 1A and 1 L. If those do not exist, then it's new J.

She's in the air now!

AY 9 has been scheduled for an 359 for tomorrow and Wednesday for a while already (maybe to allow for scheduled maintenance of the new cabin 330's), but on Tuesday we will see the new cabin on AY 9 unless there are new surprises.
