Two days before our return flight, the aircraft was changed from Embraer 190 jetliner to ATR 72 turboprop that is not our favorite aircraft. The travel comfort between these two airplanes is very different. Luckily, the flight came only half full and we got the whole exit row to ourselves.
Beforehand, we had purchased seats 1AC which are the best seats on Embraer. As the aircraft was changed, Finnair changed our seats to 1CD and I changed them to 1AB when making the online check-in. ATR has seats ABCD and Embraer has ACDF. As there came nobody else to the first row, my partner was moved to the other side because there has to be someone sitting next to both exits.
Despite the extended flight time of 1 hour and 10 minutes, the flight landed on time in Helsinki. The service was friendly and the usual complimentary blueberry juice was served.
