Seats don’t recline. No complimentary foods, but complementary coffee and tea.
Efficient boarding, good communication, reasonable coffee. Would have liked to know ahead of time about customizing dining options.
Everything was seamless getting through the airports. One of my flights was delayed and they reassured us our connecting flights would wait and they did! Service and food were excellent. The only thing lacking was movie choices, fewer good options than other airlines.
Although we boarded late it was smooth and easy. Flight attendants were very pleasant.
Tray was filthy. Definitely not sanitized. Flight was slightly delayed
SAS seems to like setting up flights that aren't ready to take off and then causing passengers to have to go through multiple transfers to get to their destination. The transfers also don't include the upgrades you paid for previously if their with a different airline. It is better to pay the extra hundred or so dollars to fly with an actual proper airline like Air France. Expect surprises if going with SAS.
Wifi connection could be better
i had such fond memories of SAS from the golden days of travel before 911 & Covid - it appears what ever all airlines can do to bleed you dry for what use to be free is ridiculous There were no beverages offered on the return flight from HAM/CPH/SFO and the food was beyond disgusting
Coming through chicago is a nightmare. Customs are rude, everyone shouting, disorganized lines and horrible signage. Ticketing was horrible, rude agents, rude TSA, etc, etc.
They lost my checked in bag.
Pros: "Very enjoyable great staff,"
Cons: "Lower prices"
Pros: "The SAS flight was fine. My dissatisfaction was with the company that booked my ticket which I found through a Kayak search. When booking, there was no information about luggage and I ended up paying for it at the airport. This should clearly be declared in the online booking process."
Cons: "Last minute change of boarding gate led to a dash across the airport!"
Cons: "More room. Not losing our luggage at the end."
Pros: "The quality of the seat, cleanliness of the aircraft (with the exception of the restrooms). Ground and lounge crew excellent and knowledgeable. Boarding was swift but confusing."
Cons: "In cabin crew was substandard. Very slow in the food service, often times rude and lound when addressing passengers, and failed to clean the restrooms in flight, which left them in dire state and smelled. An unusually unpleasant set of attendants, and sadly not one of them made up for the lack of professionalism the others showed. No priority boarding, they proceeded with boarding the first half of passengers all at once so rather confusing."
Pros: "Nothing, SAD were so incredibly cruel and nasty and even laughed at us after we got stranded in Copenhagen. 40 hours of traveling, 2 small children, and the sas ticket people laughed at us and refused to help us, even after we agreed to pay THREE TIMES our original fair."
Cons: "Food was pretty atrocious. Before having this flight I tried many times to book a special meal but their website is nearly impossible to use. So on the flight I was given two options of fish or mexican beef. Mexican beef meant slow cooked beef in a salty brown sauce with 2 kidney beans. Yes 2 kidney beans. With potatoes carrots and broccoli. Entertainment was pretty lacking. Not a lot of options. Also it was freezing the entire flight."
Cons: "Last plan of the day waits for all transit passengers! Never take the last plan out of SAS hubs anywhere if you want to avoid delays..."
Pros: "Being on time"
Cons: "Unfriendly crew"
Pros: "Fairly new plane."
Cons: "Only airline that made us check in our luggage; and charged us an exorbitant amount (+/- $90 per luggage) in doing so. No customer service at all. 1st attendant wouldn’t let us check-in at the counter, and 2nd attendant made us check in our carry-on despite it only being 2kg over. We could’ve moved some items around. When we boarded the plane, we saw multiple people whose carry-on looked suspiciously over the weight limit. We felt singled out. It was obvious that this airline only cares about profit and does not care about the customer. Attendants were rude and not helpful. Needless to say I will nit fly with this airline again."
Pros: "Overall a nice comfortable flight, no problem at all with the flight itself. Staff at check- in and on board were polite and efficient."
Cons: "70€ seems a little steep for luggage, but we were able to rearrange our liquids."
Pros: "Crew were very pleasant. Flight was smooth, even though did not leave on time & therefore arrived later."
Cons: "More selection of food, more variety of sandwiches and bread used."
Pros: "People were very kind. The food was terrific!"
Cons: "The entertainment system was slow."
Cons: "Was overlooked by the pursor a couple times - he probably had a lot on his plate. Also, the "snack" at the end of the trip was sorely lacking! Especially for a 7 hour flight. The bathrooms were gross & out of toilet paper. And it seemed like one was locked constantly...?"
Pros: "Everything was nice and smooth. Nice comfort and smooth flight, arriving slightly before the time"
Pros: "Nice interior and good IFE on long haul."
Cons: "I did not like the flight from Malaga to Stockholm due to not having IFE or WiFi on a 4+ hour flight. Absolutely unacceptable in today’s travel market."
Cons: "Tried to call sas , no phone answered after 730 in Copenhagen, forced to buy my own ticket to leave early am as their incompetent sas transfer desk couldn’t find me a flight in am yet I was able on kayak.com. They refused to pay for it."
Pros: "Flight was unremarkable in every good way. Food was above expectations and the crew was exceptional."
Pros: "Food was very good on international flight. All personnel was extremely polite and courteous. Great movie selection. Everyone was greeted with headphones, a bottle of water, pillow and blanket"
Cons: "Nothing not to like"
Cons: "The flight was good but it seemed like the heat was on instead of the a/c. besides that it was fine."
Cons: "since all tickets and passports are checked in advance and do not need to be scanned again when boarding, they really should start boarding from the back of the aircraft (after all the business, first-class, and priority folks) because it would really speed things up the main meal was good, but the snack was much smaller compared to my flight from Chicago to Stockholm"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and on the cross continent part of our flight we had dinner and breakfast served. Lots of leg room."
Pros: "People food"
Cons: "Seats small"
Pros: "Front of the plane was business level service - back more like low cost. But the same staff numbers as low cost."
Cons: "Boarding very slow. Staff a bit inattentive"
Pros: "I was able to sleep most of the flight."
Cons: "Plane left Newark an hour late and I missed my connecting flight in Oslo. Once I did get on a flight from Oslo to Copenhagen, there was no room for my carry on luggage. The stewardess took it and said it would be put in cargo, but now they can't find it! Two bad experiences with SAS in a row. Don't want to use them again."
Pros: "Upgraded 2 biz 4 reasonable $, everything great"
Cons: "While boarding, a crew member neglect to help me finding space on the bins for my carry on luggage with a very rough answer. However same crew member kindly attend people coming next to my wife and me. During the rest of the flight no one even direct us a single word. Seems that SAS crew's attention depend on your ethnicity."
Pros: "Unfortunately, they seemed really not want to work of to be kind."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly"
Cons: "The entertainment System could use an update - more recent movies and TV shows would help."
Pros: "Very fast boarding, clean aircraft and efficient, friendly service. Caught a break and had a smooth flight and landing"
Pros: "Crew exceptionally carefull and nice, boarding was quick and well managed. Landing was earlier than planned so as to leave enough time to go to the next gate"
Cons: "Food was just okay, some beverages had to paid like in low cost flights"
Pros: "The constant service provided by the flight crew. The food was excellent and even got a free beer. The inflight entertainment selection was abundant, did not even have to listen to my music. Very friendly crew."
Cons: "I understand coach is coach, but it was a little tight for my height."
Cons: "Well I looked online and the type of ticket I purchased said that I would have a free checked bag and I did not and I was charged 66€"
Cons: "I wasn't able to take this flight due to my first leg being cancelled. However, I did end up being placed on the SAS flight to Stockholm from Chicago, which was an overall nice flight. The only thing I didn't like was the timing of the flight. Because my starting point was from somewhere other than Chicago, this made for a very long and tiring trip. I wouldn't recommend this flight for people flying from places other than Chicago."
Cons: "Not much talk from captain about local weather and time."
Pros: "We were very impressed by the customer service and how comfortable our flight was. I will definitely fly with SAS again."
Pros: "The SAS experience was great overall. Nice flight attendants, quick boarding, very well organized. Food was one of the best airline foods Ive ever eaten, especially the BBQ chicken and wild rice entree."
Cons: "Something about the seats made it impossible to sleep without being woken up frequently by a painful position (economy class). Obviously no economy class seat will be comfortable to sleep in, but SAS seats seem to be a lot worse than other airlines."
Pros: "More room in normal seats and more comfortable. Newer and better screens than United too."
Cons: "Airplane food is almost never great, but it was edible."
Pros: "It got me from a to b"
Cons: "No food service on a four hour flight that departed at 11am. Except soggy sandwiches for purchase. I recommend taking your own food. Plane not very clean."
