How to find a Finnair’s new Business seat

These seats will be gradually installed in its Airbus A330 and A350 aircrafts over the next couple of years.

Finnair operates A350s to/from Singapore.

To check if you will be flying in the new or old seat, here’s what you can do:

  1. Search for a Business Class ticket on
  2. Fill up random passenger details
  3. Select seats to view the seat map
  4. If you do not see seats 1A and 1F (see image below), you are looking at the new seat map (with the new Business Class seats)

Here’s how the old and new seat maps compare:
