If I could describe my SAS flight from Los Angeles to Stockholm in one picture, it would be this–
My flight simply could not have been better.
To be honest, I had some trepedation stepping onboard. Last time I flew SAS longhaul I had a nasty seatmate and Lucky flew SAS on the same route just last month and reported surly service. But all fears were misplaced and the flight was great.
The new lie-flat business class seat is wonderful:
The food was exceptional:
I loved the “kitchen”:
But it was really the crew that made a great flight actually one of the best I have ever taken. Each member of the crew was warm, kind, friendly, and professional, a combination that seems difficult to pull off considering how many subpar flights I have had lately on other airlines.
A full report on the flight is coming, but I am still on a high from it as I sit in the SAS lounge here in Stockholm. In case you are wondering, I certainly did not tell SAS or my particular crew that I was reviewing the flight until we spoke after landing, which is when I asked and was happily obliged to take the first photo above.
