Review: Finnair Business Class Guangzhou Ground Service Review
|Priority Check-in, Doesn't look like very priority|
My flight to Helsinki leaves Guangzhou at 9:50am, thanks to ShenZhou service. I arrive at Guangzhou Baiyun airport at about 7:30am. Check-in is the SLOWEST I HAVE EVER BEEN, Ground stuff isn't much better than ANY US AIRPORT and they told me that the whole airplane is full. LYING to me again after Singapore Changi! Security in Guangzhou is totally a mess, just like usual, Unlike Lucky from One Mile At A Time's experience, this time they learnt their lesson and opened the priority queue. However, What is so good about this "Priority Line" maybe just the red carpet, the line is as long as normal lines, as I pass through security queue and eventually got inside the lady behind me is holding a Finnair Economy Class Ticket, isn't much better than Singapore Changi's security.
|Premium Lounge Guangzhou|
After passing that not so good experience, I went to the Premium Lounge that is provided, unfortunately, this lounge doesn't allow any photos, I will not have a full review for this lounge but I will talk about the lounge in this review. The lounge is quite good as a Priority Card Lounge, I personally will prefer this one over China Southern's Lounge in Guangzhou during breakfast timing not only the food offering but also there are less crowded in this lounge, however, this lounge isn't better than what traditional airline offers. I ate my breakfast in this lounge given that I was only invited to this lounge.
|China Southern Airbus 330|
After exiting the lounge I went to the boarding gate shortly before boarding time, I spot a few plane but Guangzhou Baiyun Airport's glass window isn't planespotter friendly.

Finnair Business Class Guangzhou Ground Service Review
The ground staff in Guangzhou isn't that great and the Security's "Priority Queue" is totally fake and unacceptable in a first-line airport. Aside from that, the experience is good!
