This is a description of my flight back from Copenhagen to Warsaw, this time onboard SAS CRJ-900. I will post some bonus pictures from beautiful Copenhagen and nearby attractions I managed to visit. Let's start with the flight.
In Copenhagen the airport is close to the city centre and the M2 metro line makes the journey fast and nice. When staying in Copenhagen for 1,2 or 3 days it is good to buy a Copenhagen Card which allows a free entrance to most of the museums and unlimited metro, bus and train rides in Copenhagen and its region.
The airport metro station is located in Terminal 3 which is quite crowded and busy but well organized with many self check - in machines and enough bag drop points.
The security control area was extremely crowded and the queues seemed endless first but finally new control point opened and the check itself was very quick. The staff was very polite and spoke perfect English. The airside of the terminal 3 looks more like a shopping center, it is difficult to spot the gates hidden between numerous cafes, bars and shops. There were hardly any seats in the area where my boarding gate was located.

Boarding started on time, we were taken to our CRJ-900 by bus. It was quite a long ride as most of the CRJs and ATRs were loacated on a remote stand.
It was my first flight with CRJ-900, I've tried LH and Malev CRJ-200 many years ago. The cabin had standard SAS colours and extremely comfortable seats. I don't rember enjoying any airline seat so much or maybe I was simply tired after walking all day long?
There were 2 FAs on this flight, one senior male on the front and one young female at the back of the cabin. My seat was 22A which reminded me of how noisy the back engine aircrats are if you are seated close to the engine.
I can't explain why, because generally I prefer wider fuselage than the narrow one, but I feel better on Bombardier airplanes than on E-jets that are supposed to be more spacious.
The seat pocket content with safety card, inflight magazine, shop on board, menu and sickness bag. I didn't notice before that the aircraft was owned by Cimber as the safety card shows.
In economy class SAS offers for free only tea/coffee or water. There is a skybar with, let's say like this, scandinavian prices ;)
Shortly after take off with full moon
The flight was smooth and short with no turbulence at all. The engines were noisy during climbing but I got used to it later. We arrived in Warsaw ahead of schedule, after 1 hour in the air.
This SAS flight is one of the last arriving to WAW or maybe the first one as it was already Monday when we left the plane. The luggage came shortly after reaching a very distant belt.

Spring, spring everywhere, whole Denmark was in blossom
Thanks for reading!
Copenhagen - CPH
Warsaw - WAW
It was a very nice flight, SAS offers comparable service standard to the one offered by LOT. CRJ-900 is for me very comfortable, just a little bit noisy while seating in the very rear of the cabin.
