Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "First time on SAS in many years. Service was lower than average. Will fly with other carriers on my next Euro trip."
Cons: "Flight left Boston 1.5 hours late. I barely made my connecting flight but my checked bag did not. SAS outsources to GBS to handle missing bags. They promised 24 hours to deiiver to my hotel, but took 3 days. No one answers their phone. Terrible experience."
Cons: "Newer movies"
Cons: "No wifi"
Pros: "Safe polite crew"
Cons: "No entertainment options on plane. Possibly due to 737maxs being taken out of service."
Cons: "Outstanding service, comfort, food, entertainment options May have been best experience ever flying"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats."
Cons: "Momondo sold me a so called 'go light' ticket (not disclosed anywhere though) meaning that only 1pc of carry on was allowed! No checked bags unless purchased. Could not see on the price of my ticket that this was the type of new generation low quality tickets. So tired of momondo."
Pros: "Easy to board, on time and food was good"
Cons: "From Helsinki to Stockholm I missed my flight because we boarded late. Once in Stockholm I had to take two different planes for my destination and in result loosing time"
Pros: "SAS generally has better planes and more space than most airlines especially in economy class. Seats were comfortable, not too tight. Food was good. Most SAS planes are really nice and new. On this flight they had a problem and had to use one of their older planes. It was still pretty nice, but the entertainment system on the older plane was a little dated."
Cons: "Used backup plane. It had an older entertainment system."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Premium economy wasn’t as good as others"
Pros: "The crew was great! and food was good!"
Cons: "Not enough movie choices. Coach seats a little uncomfortable."
Pros: "Efficient and on-time service."
Cons: "Tiny seats that are inappropriate for international travel."
Pros: "Excellent leg room in first seat near emergency exit door"
Cons: "Seat was close to toilets so a lot of traffic"
Pros: "We mentioned it was our anniversary and thought about moving up to SAS Plus, but the cost was not an option to us. She moved us up before we got on the plane! Extremely nice!!"
Cons: "Poor customer service. No notification via text or email that there was a 5 hour delay, and no immediate rerouting for connecting flights. a 15 hour trip turned into 24+. Worst SAS experience ever."
Pros: "Price and destination was convenient"
Cons: "They said coffee and tea was complimentary but they didn't serve a number of people for some reason"
Pros: "Alot of room for legs, good hp service"
Cons: "No snack with beverage before dinner, no choice of food , On connecting flight Kopenhagen-Krakow only Coffee/tea, no snack again, for passenger going over see very poor !!!!"
Pros: "Flight was unremarkable in every good way. Food was above expectations and the crew was exceptional."
Cons: "The flight was good but it seemed like the heat was on instead of the a/c. besides that it was fine."
Cons: "I took this flight to have a short layer over, only 40 minutes. This was a connecting flight departed from Newark and was a connecting flight for many people coming from Thailand. I almost missed this flight due to highly backed up passport control. If SAS was running so many international flights, they should have shifted the layer over, since many people were taking connecting flights for Oslo to Manchester. No food, there should have at least been a snack or at a minimum offered water."
Pros: "Two complimentary meals in addition to complimentary blankets was very nice. Dimming the lights for sleeping was also nice."
Cons: "They did not enforce the boarding of the back of the plane after first and business class, as a person sitting in the back of the plane it was a horrible boarding experience. Should also board less rows at a time from back to front. Even though the lights were dimmed I couldn't actually sleep, since the lights were turned back on too often to try to pass out breakfast less than 4 hours after we just had dinner."
Pros: "The airline staff were super efficient and kind."
Cons: "I would have liked more music selections especially calming. OceN sounds or Tibetan bowls etc for overnight flight."
Pros: "Cheap, more than basic, and comfortable. No major complains."
Cons: "The o my thing that could be improved is a lrger selection of movies, and better food. Food is acerage compared to everything else."
Pros: "Great takeoff and landing.Care ethics of the stuff was excellent. The quality of the food was very good and it was served with care."
Pros: "I loved that there were a lot of different movies, TV shows, games, music, and more to choose from- all for free! Then there was a dinner- not bad at all-, a snack later on, and breakfast too, all included. Headphones if you needed them ( lifesaver there as I had temporary misplaced mine), a blanket, and a pillow. The crew was really polite, and there was never more than one person in line for the bathroom."
Pros: "Seat room good. Food very good. Flight attendants excellent."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind at this time."
Pros: "This was one of the best airlines we've flown. Great food, plenty of room, friendly stewardesses and good service overall. We will definitely try to book with SAS again."

Cons: "No food or entertainment on the short flight ght"
Pros: "Best food on an airplane I have ever had. Great service from the cabin crew."

Pros: "crew was really nice and efficient"
Cons: "no complimentary beverages"
Pros: "Crew were nice, boarding ok and on time, flight took shorter when planned."
Cons: "Premium seats didn't have enough leg room to stretch, they could change the wall into curtains as in Lufthansa."
Pros: "The leg room. The great service and attitude."
Cons: "The food... needs to be improved, even if it means charging a fee."
Pros: "No problems, great crew, easy check in and on time!"
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"
Cons: "Check in took two hours! Gmhad to wait in line to "check" our bag and then wait in another to "pay" for our checked bag and get boarding passes. Very inefficient."
Pros: "12 people got bumped!"
Cons: "I and my 2 children, 10 and 8, thought the dinner was really bad. Also, entertainment selection was lacking. Other than that I thought sas did a great job with the flight."
Cons: "8 years ago on similar flight from Lax to got, we had to retrieve checked bags in Sto, and then go through security. It was not clear at all on this trip if it was the same. SK agent at lax seemed unsure, Arlanda customer service agents at baggage in Arlanda also seemed unsure. We then learned from another airport worker at baggage they would go all the way through. It is very important to know since turn around time is very short, and I almost missed flight 8 years ago, and bags did miss it last time. Tks"
Pros: "The biz class seat and bed"
Cons: "The olives in the salad."
Pros: "The interior of the plane - Clean, bright an shine, even it's an old 737-700,"
Cons: "To add some selection of the food"
Cons: "Crew at check-in at ARN extremely unhelpful. Got conflicting advice on how to check in my back pack. The whole chaos resulted in the fact that my back pack never arrived in CPH. Nobody helped me much at CPH airport as well. I had to personally go to CPH airport to pick up my luggage the next day. No compensation was offered. I was really disturbed."
Pros: "We left on time and arrived early. I got to check one free bag."
Cons: "Typically, on every other international flight I've taken, they offered at least a single glass of wine or a beer with dinner. Not so for this one."
Pros: "On time bags made 2 connections"
Pros: "Not full- middle seat in coach was empty. Newish 737-700, nice crew. Seats were reasonably comfortable with decent seat pitch."
Cons: "Meal (chicken) was inedible- and I am not fussy about airline food. The in-plane entertainment system is not activated (nor on my return flight), so they hand out i-pads with a very limited movie/TV show selection- one more piece of electronics to handle. Would have been difficult juggling, along with work computer, etc. if all seats were filled."
Pros: "Very nice crew and quiet."
Pros: "I'm pretty sure the seats have more space and lean back further than most American airlines so that helped me get some rest. I didn't eat the food because I was really trying to fall asleep but it smelled delicious! They offered iPads to everyone to use for entertainment during the flight. it was smooth and landed a bit early!"
Pros: "Economy seats were roomy. Crew very nice and attentive."
