Last August, Robert from robisintheair.deasked me, if I wanted to fly with him in SAS Go to San Francisco in the Airbus A340-300. At a price of almost 200 EUR I didn't have to think long and agreed.

The favorable offer was made only of the Swedish capital Stockholm. So I flew on the eve of the airport Berlin-Tegel with SAS to Stockholm. Since we're getting too old for one night at any bank in the airport building, we slept at the Radisson Blu SkyCity. The hotel has the great advantage that it is right in the airport building and so the distances are quite short. The next morning, we flew to a quick breakfast in the SAS Gold Lounge Stockholm (Lounge Review) At 07:55 from Stockholm to Copenhagen.

After our arrival in Copenhagen, we headed straight for the SAS Gold Lounge Copenhagen (Lounge Review) To. After a relaxing time in the lounge, with some disappointing food offer, it was time to go to Gate C28. We crossed the automatic passport control, answered succinctly the typical questions for US travelers, and sat in the waiting area directly at the gate. After just a few minutes started the boarding and status as guests we were allowed to go with young children on board by the families. SAS is fortunately very meticulous in complying with the boarding groups.

The seats in the SAS Go are covered with a gray sturdy fabric and have a width of about 44 centimeters in front. Hence the seats, although narrow, but offer by the good padding still a pleasant seating comfort.

Jeweils unter zwei Sitzen befindet sich eine Universal-Steckdose, welche man sich somit mit seinem Nachbarn teilen muss. Allerdings hat jeder Passagier Zugriff auf eine USB-Steckdose, welche rechts neben dem In-flight Entertainment-Monitor angeordnet ist.

Already at boarding Go seating were ready a bottle of water, cheap in-ear headphones, a pillow and a blanket on each SAS. For Economy Class that is not a bad service!

The built-in front seat monitor the in-flight entertainment was big enough, had a good image quality and the touch screen was responding to light touch. The range of films and television series was mediocre. In addition, there were video games, music and an animated ticket.

SAS Go in der Airbus A340-300 – Service

Leider dauerte es eine Ewigkeit, bis der erste Service begann. Ungefähr eine Stunde nach dem Start wurde zuerst ein Getränkeservice durchgeführt. Dieser war unsere einzige Möglichkeit als SAS Go Passagier ein kostenfreies alkoholfreies Getränk (außer Wasser, Kaffee und Tee) zu erhalten. Weitere Getränke müssen anschließend kostenpflichtig mit Kreditkarte erworben werden. Und die Preise waren dabei nicht wirklich günstig: ein einfaches Carlsberg (0,33 Liter) kostete z.B. 5 EUR, eine Softdrink mit der gleichen Größe immerhin nur 3 EUR. Neben den Getränken können übrigens auch Snacks und weitere Speisen bei den Flugbegleitern gekauft werden. Auch das ist mit z.B. 3 EUR für eine kleine Tüte Kartoffelchips nicht wirklich günstig. In der hinteren Galley stand während unseres Fluges aber immer Wasser zur Selbstbedienung zur Verfügung.

Lunch was served approximately two hours after the start in Copenhagen. Those who expect a selection of hot dishes, hopes in the SAS go in vain. Vegetarian or other special meals must be booked at least 24 hours before departure. However, the serving dish, beef to a refined chocolate sauce, mashed potatoes and crunchy vegetables was not so bad. The mash was merely flavored with a little too much mustard. In addition there was a mixed salad, rolls and dessert, a caramel pudding on chocolate crumble.

That in addition to water / tea / coffee no free alcoholic drinks and only a free soft drink, it simply has to be in front in set. A real complaint about the service, however, is how slow he vonstattenging. The whole procedure lasted well over three hours when you can not really stand up or working on a laptop. The seats in the SAS Go are indeed narrow with a width of 44 centimeters, but offer by the good padding still a pleasant seating comfort. Pleasantly surprised I was also of the universal socket, which is located under each two seats.
