At that price you arenít paying much more than taxes so worst case scenario and you only get your taxes back it will be a decent proportion of that you have paid.


Weíve booked for a similar price and will fly out with hand luggage only. We did hand luggage last year and managed fine.

We do like to do a bit of shopping so will pay for 1 case on the return journey. Itís £60 to pay for a case at the airport. (Thatís with delta but ba will be similar)

Finnairís majority shareholder is the Finnish government, so while good insurance is always important for numerous reasons, you donít really need to worry about it going under.

We thought perhaps 2 cases out between the four of us ( mums going) and 4 back so out cases inside each other like we have before.

I still cannot believe Iíve got flights for that price , in a bit of a daze this morning and canít wait to tell my mum sheís going back .

I booked this flight too but going out on the 18th from Man. Great price. You can only pay AA for the cases at the point of check in at the airport and its $60 per 23kg case each way. You can carry on a 8kg hand luggage bag. Fligts are good times too

Also, I gave the details to my local trusted Abta, Atol etc approved travel agent who price matches and they did just that and booked it directly for me with the airline. I got my tickets that night via email.

Just be careful with AA flights they will split you up with children if you donít precook and pay for seats. It happened on my flight last October and there were lots of people split up on the flight.

At check in only seats showing together were miles apart or together at £120 each

Is this just with long haul flights? We have flown twice with them domestically and not been split up?

Edited: our seats have already been allocated. We are all sat together, but in the middle. Boy, AA move fast.

Yes it was from LHR to MIA, we didnít pay for seats and nothing was ever available together except the expensive seats from last December onwards. We paid for exit seats on the way home last December, but we were happy to have normal economy on the way out.

There were lots and lots of people separated. For example I was allocated 38a, my husband 38j, the person sat next to my husband, their partner was in in 37c, it was crazy. No idea why. I checked every week for seats together but it never happened.

That flight was booked via BA, but it was an AA operated flight.

Did you phone AA to book after booking with Finnair. Our experience last year has really put me off flying with AA. Everything else was fine.

Has anyone added on luggage yet? Really tempted to book, but the luggage massively increases the price x
