First SAS new-look long-haul cabin takes off

Aircraft flying from Nordics to USA first to benefit
The first SAS aircraft with the airline’s long-haul cabin has taken off. Flight SK909 from Copenhagen bound for Newark has a new design, new seats, new infotainment system and on-board wifi in all classes.
The “ultramodern cabin” will be installed in seven existing aircraft and new planes that will enter service from this autumn. The next updated aircraft is set to enter service in late March and will mainly fly between both Stockholm and Oslo and the USA.
The materials and colour scheme in the new cabins have been chosen “to create a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere”, the airline says. Seating in the SAS Go and SAS Plus classes is designed with extra space for storage. All seats in SAS Business have access to aisles and fold flat as sleeper seats.
The bedding comes from Hästens, the oldest bed manufacturer in Sweden, while the on-demand entertainment system has HD screens.
SAS announced that its long-haul fleet would be renewed back in June 2013. The change involves a cabin upgrade on seven Airbus A330/A340s; four new Airbus A330-300s to be delivered in 2015 and 2016; and eight Airbus A350-900s to be delivered from 2018 onwards with an option on an additional six.
