SAS Scandinavian Airlines | New York City to Stockholm | Last night was my first time ever experience flying SAS Scandinavian Airlines, and of course I could have not chosen a better opportunity to do so than the LOVE in the Air event. For those not familiar yet with this event, this is a joint promotion by SAS + Visit Sweden + ICEHotel where LGBT couples get married in the air between New York City and Stockholm, and enjoy their honeymoons either in New York or in Kiruna at the ICEHotel. On our flight one lucky couple from North Carolina were the ones saying YES and taking the wedding vows to a completely different level… in the AIR.
SAS flies Airbus 330/340 between New York City ( Newark International Airport ) and Stockholm ( Arlanda Airport ) in approximately 7 hours. They offer 3 classes – Economy, Economy Premium and Business Class. We were lucky to be hosted into Business Class and enjoy the impeccable service of this European airline member of the Star Alliance group.
Full dinner and breakfast served on board during the flight. But you may also enjoy the courtesy and snacks at the SAS Lounge in Newark International Airport. The thing that impressed me the most is that the crew changed right after landing into a full chef outfit. (see pictures below )
A great meal, one movie (BTW excellent onboard entertainment system) and a short nap and we were already enjoying breakfast and landing at ARLANDA Airport in Stockholm.
