Cabin

The business class cabin has a 3-3 configuration with the middle seat left vacant. Five of the ten seats were occupied that day.

Lounge

SAS uses the VIP Lounge, a pretty basic lounge probably not as good as the lounge Lufthansa and SWISS are using, which is located a few meters away.

Boarding

Boarding started 10 minutes after the scheduled time. Unfortunately, there was no priority boarding so we there was a little chaos there.

From where I was seated, I was able to saw that our luggages were set aside to make sure they were the ones to be out first when we collect our luggages in Arlanda. Cool!

Coat hook and personal tray.

I would say that the legroom was pretty spacious, well at least for me.

Meal

My predeparture drink: a glass of apple juice...as usual.

The main course consisted of beef with potatos and mixed vegetables. It actually tasted very good.

After enjoying the main course, I ordered a cup of tea.

Entertainment

No personal TV.

Toilet and Lavatory

Pretty basic toilet which was always kept clean.

Arrival in Stockholm

Well, what can I say? It's always nice to be back home. It was still cold when we left for this trip but now, everything is telling me that summer has started!

Conclusion

 

It was our first time to fly on SAS in business class and it turned out just fine. And to think that business class within Europe is now gone as they only have SAS Go and SAS Plus, so we actually got lucky to experience the last business class service.

 

The positive things were the fasttrack, the good food and service. The not so good ones were no priority boarding and the lounge which could have been better. Overall, I would rate this flight a 7 out of 10. Till next time, SAS. Tack och hej då!
