SAS finally upgrades its planes

The best cabin in Europe, airline proudly proclaims

After many years of worn seats, tiny entertainment screens with terrible sound, no internet or USB connection, SAS has finally started to upgrade its long-distance aircraft. 

Wednesday’s flight from Copenhagen to New York accordingly featured a fully updated Airbus A330 replete with new seats and facilities all around.

Swiss finishing

The refurbishing took three months and was completed at SR Technics in Zurich, Switzerland.

The upgrade is part of a larger effort by the hard-pressed airline to become more competitive.

Long overdue

And the new cabin lift comes not a moment too soon, says Eivind Roald, the executive vice president of SAS.

"It should have been done several years ago," Roald told Politiken."We are ready now and we believe that we have the best cabin the whole of Europe."
