Welcome to this trip report of my SAS Plus (Premium Economy) flight from Copenhagen to Miami.

SAS Plus customers are allowed to use the SAS Business Lounge at Copenhagen.
This lounge has a very nice and stylish interior and offers a good although basic selection for breakfast.

Passport control was very quick however boarding from our crowded gate at the C gates pier was quite chaotic.
Priority boarding did not work very good and the ground staff did not put emphasis on following this.

A very friendly crew welcomed us on board and provided a very nice and relaxing service throughout the whole trip.
The flight was not very full. So SAS Plus remained almost empty and I had a nice window seat with nobody next to me.

Waiting on the seat was a bottle of water, a very comfortable blanket, pillow, headphones and a basic amenity kit.
This kit however only contained tooth brust and paste plus eye shades. Not even socks were provided.

We departed on time and left the clouds over Denmark behind us.

A basic menu on the individual screen described the general service. However no exact description of the meals served was provided.

Service on this 10h10min flight started soon after take with a nice hot towel.

Afterwards a first drink service with some nuts was conducted where I opted for a very nice tasting smoothie.

Then it was time for lunch. There was a choice of chicken or fish from which I opted for chicken.
The meal was very nice presented on a big tray with a real glass for the main drink.
Everything tasted very good and several runs with warm and tasty bread from the basket were done.

I finished off my meal with some tea and Baileys.

Afterwards the cabin crew passed by with a basket of fresh fruit from which I selected a banana.

During the whole flight the crew passed by many times offering drinks or snacks including those great tasting chips.

On our journey we passed over Greenland with some great views of the snowy landscape - great in combination with those red SAS Scandinavian engines!

Around two hours before landing another hot towel started the second meal service which was a very good tasting cold plate.

We started the approach towards Miami overflying Fort Lauderdale:

Soon we touched down and this very nice flight came to an end perfectly on time.

This flight was very nice with a very friendly crew and a perfect Premium Economy experience.
Comparing SAS Plus to Lufthansa Premium Economy I come to the following conclusion:
- Seat is better on Lufthansa as it provides more stowage areas, e.g for glasses, phone, water bottle, amenity kit etc.
- Amenity kit is better on Lufthansa
- Meal service is very similar on both airlines although Lufthansa provides a printed menu and a welcome drink which are nice addons.

I would definitely recommend SAS Plus for comfortable longhaul travel.
