SAS Plus, Oslo Gardermoen – Copenhagen Kastrup, Airbus A320NEO: Simple and efficient

I left the SAS Gold lounge in Oslo about 5 minutes before the departure of my flight to Copenhagen, the gate being just below the lounge.

As a reminder, here is the itinerary followed:

Today’s itinerary


Boarding began 2 minutes before the theoretical time, and via the gates provided for this purpose.


I appreciate the fact that other groups are blocked at the gate. I was the second on board.


Cabin and welcome

The SAS cabin on these medium-haul flights is elegant. The welcome was smiling and I did not have a neighbor on this flight.


Boarding ended 10 minutes before departure, and we left one minute ahead of schedule.


Service and catering

Service began about ten minutes after take-off.


A breakfast box was handed out, similar to the one served on my outbound flight from Copenhagen to Paris.


I ate a few slices of cheese and the yoghurt, which was very good. I washed it all down with a flat white. Simple and effective.


Arrival and disembarkation

Despite a perfectly on-time departure, we landed ten minutes late in Copenhagen and arrived at the gate 20 minutes late. As the gate we were due to arrive at was still occupied, we had to change to a gate without a jetbridge, and a staircase was positioned. We walked a few meters to the terminal.


Bottom line

A very solid flight. The service was adapted to the duration of the flight.
