I immediately made myself comfortable under the complementary fleece blanket, and got my neck pillow and eye mask in situ and got off to sleep fairly speedily. I was awoken an hour later by Alex to find out we were still on the tarmac at Helsinki airport and the flight had been cancelled. We were promptly off-boarded........
