A very good flight
This was a pretty short flight, but it was on time with a friendly crew and a drink served during the trip. One negative thing: check-in was really slow even if it had already been done online.

An excellent airline
This flight went well overall. The plane was comfortable, not too noisy, and the flight crew was very nice. The two meals they served weren't delicious but they weren't that bad either, your basic airline food. There were also snacks and drinks.
The entertainment screens were a drawback: they had low-quality headphones and the plug made it so you could not substitute them with your own headphones.
The luggage was in good condition on arrival, and the transfer to Helsinki and then Paris was done well.
Check-in and boarding were very fast. A small drawback was that the arrival time, which was delayed by almost an hour. Luckily I had no connecting flight to catch.
In short, I recommend Finnair!

Bon vol, mais problèmes au sol
Petit vol intérieur très court, donc je ne m'attendais pas à un grand confort. Mais j'ai plutôt été agréablement surpris : bien sûr pas d'écrans...

Both the outgoing and returning flights were on time, already a very good point. No problem with baggage, even during the transit between two terminals in the huge London airport.
Flight attendants were smiling and helpful. Meals and snacks on board were adequate; we had the choice between a Western meal and a Japanese one. A "night" of around 6-8 hours passed during the flight.
Leg room was rather extensive, even for larger people, and the seats were rather comfortable.
Blanket, cushion, and headphones were furnished.
Entertainment was numerous and varied.
A small drawback on the return trip (from Haneda on August 6, 2013): it was really cold in the plane. Since I was only wearing Bermuda shorts and a T-shirt, and a blanket was not furnished, I found it intolerable. And the TV screens were a little old with far fewer choices than on our outgoing trip.
Overall, I am satisfied. I'll use this airline again in the future.

Very good flights
First of all, punctuality: both outbound and inbound the plane was on time, so that's something good straight away!
Take-off and landing went well, even though the plane made a large turn with quite a lot of turbulence before landing at Newark.
With me being tall, I was pleasantly surprised: I had quite a lot of room for my legs (on the other hand, the seats don't recline much, but it's like that everywhere...).
The meals and snacks aren't huge, and it's airline food, but they're still wholly satisfying in my opinion.
Several times during the flight the hostesses came by and offered hot and cold drinks (water, cola, tea, ...).
The entertainment was good, with numerous films and series and lots of quite recent music in all styles available via individual screens (though the vast majority is in English).
The members of the cabin crew were quite smiley and friendly.
No problems with check in and boarding, and very quick too: checking in at Newark only took 5 minutes (with the self-service kiosks). No luggage problems either.
In summary, on both outbound and return, two good flights!
