SAS Business Class on their longhaul routes has been the same for a few years so our story today is not about a new product but rather a peak into the cabin and what is typically served on a flight from Scandinavia to the US.

The seats are lie-flat at an angle. The design of the seat is in SAS signature dark blue fabric with cream leather details. Each seat has a video screen with audio and video on demand. The selection is ok but not very extensive if compared to the best in class airlines.

Let's enjoy the food:

Soon after departure the cocktail hour begins. An amuse with mozzarella, small pepper and tomato along with fried peas. A glass of Henriot Champagne is the perfect start to any journey with SAS. Henriot is really a pleasant Champagne.

The starter went down all too quickly so we missed to take a picture. Above is the main course - Renskav with lingonberries and Chanterelles.

A passionfruit cheese cake with fruits as dessert.
Ice cream some more fruit and tea.

One of the best things with SAS Business Class on longhaul flights is the self service buffet area where fruits, chocolates, sandwiches and wines are displayed. And of course the espresso machine that makes a really nice cappucino.
1 hour and 45 minutes before landing in the US SAS serves a cold meal. Usually it is delicious open sandwiches with cray fish, roast beef etc. As well as a bowl of fruits and...

...the cinnamon bun ;-)

SAS offers a consistent Business Class product with a nicely furnished cabin, a good meal concept and many Scandinavian touches. But to follow the competitors they soon need to go fully flat in Business Class. Continental who is flying from Newark to Oslo, Stockholm and Copenhagen is busy converting its fleet to fully flat beds.
