Another short-lived operator; Flying Finn, which we took (week after I took the photo) Stansted to Helsinki in 2003. Former Finnair MD-80, and also the crew. They had previously been a Finnish travel agency who had a short-lived go at schedules. Not part of the Sunday Scandinavian set, this was a daily operation. Took it with a Russian passport holder with a Finnish visa - only in Finnish. Stansted handling agent at check-in had no training in reading these, but said they just looked for a date somewhere that was in the future.
