SAS Go Premium Meat Menu

Here’s a picture of my SAS go inflight meal, yes, I tried to make it look “instagramable”, yet it’s not so savory in reality.

To many people’s concern, Airlines nowadays are looking at every way possible to bring in more revenue, thus SAS has now introduced another “improved” service on their long haul intercontinental routes to US and Asia.

SAS now gives SAS Go travelers the chance to upgrade their dining experience by pre-ordering premium menus on long haul flights. Aiming to further enhance the personalisation of the airlines’ on-board experience, the initiative is also in line with the development of the next generation of traveling and a part of SAS’s environmental and sustainability work.

We believe true travelers wish to add that little extra element to their flying experience. Therefore, SAS now introduces the possibility to enhance the dining experience on board, also when traveling in SAS Go.

Starting from November 2018, SAS Go travelers on long haul flights can pre-order a premium menu to upgrade and enhance their dining experience.


This is a continuation of their already claimed-to-be “successful” implementation of pre-ordering on short-haul flights since 2016, they are asking passengers to pay for a practical amount for a much improved meal options when are seated in Go class cabin.

Starting from November, four options will be offered at the price starting from SEK 190 / NOK 190 /DKK 150 / EUR 19 / USD 23.

 

You may access their menu details as a PDF file here.


Conclusion:

Well this is great news for many SAS travellers who has a bone to pick with their catering, since the price to pay here is very reasonable, I would not be surprised if this become very popular among SAS long-haul passengers.

However, there are certain drawbacks on ordering such service:

  • As pre-order premium meal is only allowed to be served in Go cabin, so if you choose to pre-order you long haul go class meal, you won’t be able to get courtesy upgrade or upgrade with points at the gate then.
  • As for SAS Plus premium economy cabin, you won’t be able to choose such service either,  but you will have a 3 course meal included in your service class already here.
  • As titled “premium” catering, in practice, the meal would be a combination of Plus meal and Business meal, as the starters and desserts would be the same from Plus cabin offering, while the main course would be leaning towards business cabin offerings.

Practical Info:

  • The premium menu must be pre-ordered no later than 18 hours before departure on routes from Scandinavia and no later than 24 hours before departure on routes from the US and Asia.
  • From 29 October 2018 it will be possible to order these Premium Menus via the SAS website for flights from 5 November 2018.
  • Initially there will be only 6 of these Premium menus available per. flight, so you’ll have to be quick.

From 29 September, Scandinavian Airlines will once again be possible to fly direct to China. Direct flights between Scandinavia and China with SAS has been stopped since 31 January. The airline has obtained approval from the Chinese authorities and is reopening the route from its hub from Copenhagen to Shanghai with a weekly frequency.


SAS will resume flights from Copenhagen Airport to Shanghai Pudong International Airport on September 29, 2020. The flight runs once a week from Copenhagen to Shanghai every Tuesday and from Shanghai to Copenhagen every Thursday. This route will use our brand new Airbus 350 to fly. The Airbus 350 has advanced engines and cabins, which can reduce emissions by 30% compared to the models it replaces. The specific flight schedule is as follows:

  • SK997 takes off from Copenhagen at 18:40 and arrives in Shanghai at 10:55+1 (the next day)
  • SK998 Departs from Shanghai at 13:10 and arrives at Copenhagen at 18:30

The reopening of this route is vital for trade. 

With the reopening of the route, SAS is aiming to meet demand for business travel and air freight services between Scandinavia and China.

At the end of October, SAS is also planning to resume flights to Beijing provided that SAS obtains the necessary approval from the authorities.


SAS is currently flying to 75 destinations and operates up to 380 flights a day. 

SAS is monitoring market developments on a weekly basis and is ready to step up its services when travel restrictions are eased and demand for travel increases again. 

SAS has introduced a range of measures aimed at meeting new demands in the work to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Please find more information here.
