I have read reviews saying how great the business seats are on this SAS flight - we took it in and out of Copenhagen/Chicago but I'm wondering if the reviewers have ever flown another airline in business with lie flat seats. Outbound we were in 4D & 4F. These seats are extremely narrow and the foot well is very tight, the seat itself very hard. There is no way to just lean back your seat with feet up & watch a movie. It's either sit straight up or lie flat & when you do lie flat 2/3rds of your body is in the narrow well and it's very hard and uncomfortable. They need to rework their seats completely. The staff and service was very nice and the food was pretty tasty but as far as a comfortable business seat my husband and I felt they completely missed the mark. We travel a lot overseas in business and we were surprised at the seats themselves. And I would not recommend 8D&8F because of all the commotion going on in the galley & the bathrooms are all in that area (none up front) so everyone must pass by you.
I highly recommend the seats closer to the window as they provide more privacy and better views. The footwells were larger than I expected and I found them to be practical. The seat is great and there is a lot of storage just like all other seats in this cabin.
We paid for extra legroom, since my husband needed to stretch his leg out as he had knee surgery this year. These seats provided that, but the location was not optimal for a long 7 hour flight. We were so close to the bathrooms and the traffic there and constant on and off of the bathroom lights prevented us from sleeping at all. On the return flight we had seats 40A and 40B and these seats were better. The stewardess was wonderful and talked to us about Copenhagen, her home. Very friendly and helpful.
Seat 1H from EWR to OSL. Very comfortable ride up front. Bigger than normal foot well as it is in the bulkhead. IFE had to be rebooted a couple of times because the remote kept creating erratic randoms clicks causing the movies to jump around. The east coast flight time doesn't leave much time for sleep if the full dinner service is accepted which can be a bit slow though food and service is top notch. No less sense of privacy compared to the seats closer to the window (when standing everyone can see you anyway). Movie selection is not as large as other airlines, but suitable for an overnight flight where sleep is the driver.
Fantastic seat (as economy goes). Due to tapering of fuselage, this pair of seats is set at an awkward angle. 51G is much closer to seat in front but 51H gave me (6'1') lots of spare legroom. Air crew were fine too, forget the fact that alcohol is only available to buy, I knew that when I booked. Would definitely book this seat again. Oh, the views of Greenland were stunning.
the seat was awful and small, narrow and we had no room. But an amazing shout out to the flight attendants on this flight. they were so kind and amazing! thank you for making a long 8 hours flight pleasant!
Everything was very good. Service done well
A great seat! Lots of storage space! Meal service was 1st class with 3 courses... I'm 6ft. and plenty of space to stretch out... the bathroom was huge on this plane, room to change clothes! Lie down flat beds with hastens mattress very comfortable and supportive...
I have flown overseas business class on 9 different airlines in the last few years. SAS ranks second, only behind Emirates (who probably will never be exceeded). Good "pod", pretty good storage, big screen, good food and drink, excellent service. Only minor issue is limited A/V - fewer movie choices than most others, limited music. I like to listen to classical and there was one choice of an hour of a mixed selection. The selection was good but it's an 8 hour flight...
Great Business Class seat with great space for your feet when sitting and laying on the lie flat bed. Furthest from lavoratory close to crew. There is a remote to control your tv which makes the extra space even better. This seat has less privacy than 2 H due to your cubby storage being on the window side so your seat is closer to the aisle.
Reduced leg room due to aircraft construction.
This seat has reduced legroom due to the construction of the plane.
Large seat with additional recline and foot-rest as compared to GO. Only one window to look out, and you have to bend forward to do so. Easier to sleep without the window. With few passengers in Plus I could change seat, but for the 10 hour flight without sleep I didn't think of it as a problem. Worth the upgrade for long haul
This seat is one of the best for the mid section of the business cabin. It has a shelf as a wall towards the aisle, and the shelf/wall for the 4F seat makes it into a "pod" with a high level of privacy. Only complaint was the limited storage space getting things out of sight without having to store it in the bins above.
SAS effectively does recognize or respect pre-selected and will randomly reassign passengers to any seat - typically the last seats in the plane - to maintain "weight balance" of the plane. This seat is simply horrible with misaligned angle with seat in front and limited leg room. Furthermore, weight seemed to balanced solely by passengers with non-nordic surname. Airline is a complete joke. Flight was half empty. Not surprising given the truly offensive service and attitude of staff.
The armrest is on the window side which somehow obstruct the view (if you are into looking through the window). This seem to be the case for all odd numbered seats towards the windows. All in all very comfortable. Liked much the storage space. Very satisfied.
This was an amazing flight for me. The only other time I have flown business was in the SAS cabin on the older planes (between CPH and SFO), so this new cabin is a definite improvement. The seat is very private with the table to the aisle. The power options meant that I got off the flight with everything charged. The seat reclines completely flat so for the first time in my life I actually got some sleep on a plane. There is a massage option which is subtle, but really makes a difference. The screen is really good - again, first time I have a better screen in the airplane than I have brought with me. The movie selection wasn't too bad - got to see a couple of movies that I didn't get around to going to see in the cinema this year (which is what I expect and want from long haul). The editing wasn't too egregious either. The staff were all really nice, and attentive, especially during the meal service.. The food was a good selection and well cooked and there were plenty of drinks and snacks available. The wifi was surprisingly good and stable. That definitely exceeded my expectations. I managed to get quite a lot of work done. The comfort pack had the usual toothbrush/paste, socks mask combo with some nice handcream and lip balm. The bedding was pretty good I think - at least I wasn't complaining. I've stayed in hotels in Finland with worse. All in all, a really pleasant experience - made long-haul a little bit of a pleasant experience for a change.
Great aircraft, very silent
If you"re 2 people and want to fly together' the row 1e/1f, is perfect. The front toiletes aren't open to the public. So no annoyance due to folks visiting the rest rooms... If alone, choose the even rows (2,4,6,...) much more privacy due to the seats configuration.
HKG-ARN October 2016. 2A is better than 1A. More Privacy, because the bigger armrest is to the aisle. Super confortable seats, best ever i had. Very special is the !Free! WiFi (in businessclass) The recomended Lounge in HKG (Thai Airways) is bad. See my Video on YouTube, Flight SK964: https://youtu.be/oN5k9kVA_1k
