Review : SAS Business Lounge- Copenhagen

After my flight from Paris to Copenhagen in SAS Plus, I go to the SAS lounge in Copenhagen to wait for my flight to Chicago

Terminal

The path to the SAS lounge from my arrival door is not the easiest.

As I follow the directions to the gate, I happen to see the lounge on my left, just before the passport controls that lead to the non-Schengen zone.

Unsure if a lounge is available after passport control, I head to the one I see first. And luckily: there is no SAS lounge after this passport control (there is another lounge I could have accessed with my Priority Pass).

Reception

The welcome is all Scandinavian: I am directed to the Business lounge (I don’t have Star Alliance Gold status) which is on the left, the Gold lounge being on the right and on the mezzanine (much brighter).

Eligibility is checked by automatic gates, so no more squatters!

Lounge design

The lounge is quite bright, despite the lack of windows in its main area. This is due to the clever lighting and the light wood characteristic of Scandinavia.

Several areas are available, with high tables for eating, large armchairs for relaxing and a brighter space near the bay windows.

There is a VIP room as well as areas for families.

Catering

Although a little more abundant than at the Paris CDG lounge, the catering remains rather basic, without hot elements, and consisting of salads that are not really fresh.

Only the cheese is interesting with this cutting machine which is only found in Scandinavia.

No desserts are offered except for chocolate oatmeal cookies.

Soft drinks, beer but also wine (sic!) are available at the tap, but it is the standard in these countries

My stomach thanks me for avoiding the bag in box red wine.

No hard drinks are available. A little light for business class passengers.

Lounge facilities

The lounge has a toilet, which was very clean when I arrived. I didn’t see any showers, but I didn’t ask either.

A multimedia area is available and sponsored, without knowing what its real use is.

Bottom line

It is an area that allows you to wait for your next flight in better conditions than in the boarding lounge… But without much added value or Premium aspect that is worth a big detour.
