Check Out Angry Birds @ Finnair’s Airport Lounge!

Look what greeted me at Finnair’s check-in counter in Helsinki!

Being a frequent traveller, checking-in at airports is nothing unusual for me. But this time, I was totally in for a surprise! The flight to the Angry Birds Asian Challenge started right from the check-in counter. This meant that every fare-paying passenger were also in for a sweet treat, & this was just the appetizer!

After a short stint in the beautiful city of Helsinki, it was time to embark on a 12-hr flight back to Singapore on Finnair’s Angry Birds flight.

After checking in, an invitation to Finnair’s lounge was extended to privileged passengers, like ME!! While I was clearing the customs to go to the lounge, these Angry Birds were also going through the security.

Now, guess who were waiting for us at the lounge? The Angry Birds, of course!

Tada! Come greet the the main star! Hauska Tavata, Mr Red Bird! That’s “Nice to meet you!” in Finnish, if I remember correctly.

I quickly checked Mr Angry Bird's seat no. OMG, 56D! I got the seat just behind his row!! I was elated, ecstatic to be sitting near Mr Red Bird!!

With me was the cheery Jukka-Pekka, one of the organizers for this event. JP was my first contact. I’d received an int’l call from him, informing me of my fluky win for this trip :) It was awesome!

Time to relax after a good meal. With me were few of the Angry Birds Asian Challenge team members: (L-R) Bryan, John, Lasse. What do you think of our glow-in-the-dark tees?

Bryan & John were my travel partners in Helsinki. These 2 handsome young chaps took really good care of me during the trip even though I was way above their age. Lol!
