Each week, my Meal of the Week feature examines an airline meal from my travels over the years. This may be a meal from earlier in the week or it may be a meal served over a decade ago.
This week’s Meal of the Week looks back on a 2016 flight to Longyearbyen on SAS and what was served in SAS Plus, a puesdo-business class on SAS domestic and European routes.
The flight from Oslo (OSL) to Longyearbyen (LYR) was almost three hours, making it longer than many international flights on SAS. While domestic flights, even in SAS Plus, are generally not catered beyond snacks, dinner was served after takeoff.
As we ascended, the scent of warm bread wafted through the cabin. At about 10:00 P.M., flight attendants offered each passenger a boxed meal containing an anchovy/herring appetizer, roast beef main with coleslaw and roasted potatoes, and a lemon poppyseed cake for dessert. The box was served cold but the bread rolls were served piping hot.
Even though I had eaten earlier in the lounge, I still very much enjoyed this cold meal.
You can read my full review of the flight here, which includes some great shots out the window of the sun rising in the west.
