The AY Premium Lounge at HEL was a great place to relax before the flight and never felt crowded. Catering was very good offering a nice assortment of choices. Staff was at times soliciting and one of them even recommended me a cucumber drink to try with my meal.
The showers were well appointed and the availability of a sauna was an advantage, even though I did not get the chance to try it. For those that are prudish, this facility is a mixed one with access for both sexes. There are changing rooms available in addition to showers.
AY's Econcomy Comfort is a wonderful product, especially the bulkhead seats which offer plenty of legroom to stretch out. The little extras like amenity kit which is slightly different from the J ones, noise cancelling headphones and the bottle of water are appreciated. Catering is the same as the rest of the Y cabin It's pretty generous of AY to offer these seats to other Oneworld Emerald members for free.
