Thai or Finnair from Australia to Madrid

Jump to last reply

My family and I (DH and 2 sons 20&18yrs) will be travelling to Madrid mid December. We have two options available to us to get there - either Thai (via Bangkok) or Finnair (Cathay Pacific to Hong Kong then Finnair via Helsinki). The return journey will be from London and, if we choose Finnair, then we would be returning with British Airways via Singapore. There is quite a difference in total cost between the two options - around AU$2000 cheaper with Finnair.

I'm wondering if anyone has travelled with Finnair on a longhaul flight and whether they found the economy class seats "comfortable" - my 18y.o. is 6 foot 3 inches (and still growing!). DH who is slightly over 6foot remembers a BA flight from London to Sydney about 6 years ago that was extremely cramped and uncomfortable - is this still the case?

Comments on the Skytrax website indicate Thai may be the best option for tall people.
Any thoughts from Fodorites would be greatly appreciated.
