introduction


Welcome to the 6th part in this long Scandinavian series of reviews. On this flight, we'll be heading back to Copenhangen for a day prior to catching our British Airways flights home to the U.S.

It was a nice quick visit to Oslo, where we met up with an old friend I hadn't seen in ages. It was nice to be back in Oslo after so many years. It's such a clean and safe city with so much culture in a beautiful natural setting.

pre-flight & check-in


As we were staying at the Scandic Oslo City, it was easy to get to the Central Train Station as we were just across the street.

We hopped the "Flytoget" airport express train go Gardermoen. It's a bit on the expensive side at 240 NOK (~ $22) a ticket, but it's fast and comfortable. There are less expensive options on suburban trains, which can be crowded and make frequent stops.

Nice to be back to this beautiful terminal. It was a bit busier than the last 2 times we were through OSL. 


photo img_8951photo img_8952

With our SAS Plus premium economy tickets, we had access to the Business class check-in lanes, for which there was no wait. 


photo img_8953

We'd already checked in on the app the evening prior so we just had to drop off checked baggage.

SAS Plus also gives access to the Fast Track security lanes. This was a great perk, as the queue for standard security lanes was very long.

Security agents were very friendly and helpful, and we were airside in a few minutes.

We headed straight for the international zone for our flight to Denmark.

SAS lounge


Another nice perk of SAS Plus is lounge access on departure. The benefits are essentially the same as Business class, except that SAS don't have blocked middle seats. Accordingly, they categorise the higher cabin product on regional routes as Premium Economy. 

The lounge is located in the central hall of the international zone on the upper level.

The lounge is one level up on the lift. 


photo img_8965photo img_8966

The standard Business lounge is located to the right of the entrance, with the Star Alliance Gold lounge to the left.


photo img_8967photo img_8968

The lounge was pretty busy that day but we had no issues finding seating in the rear section.

There are no views to the outside, just into the central hall of the international zone. 


photo img_8973

Food was pretty basic, mostly salads, pasta, and soup. Still nice than most lounges in the U.S., however. Beer, wine, soft drinks, and juices are also available. 


photo img_8974photo img_8969

I checked the flight status as we waited in the lounge. There's lots of good information in the SAS app. 


photo img_8970


It even should you the past flights of your inbound aircraft, similar to Flightradar24, which certainly appeals to my AvGeekiness. 


photo img_8972


Looks like there were still a few open seats in the SAS Plus section.

boarding



We left the lounge about 10 minutes before boarding to find the gate. 


photo img_8975photo img_8976


Boarding hadn't yet started as we arrived at the gate. 


photo img_8981-57163


SAS Plus also comes with priority boarding, so we were able to board through the automated gates as soon as Group 1 was called. 


photo img_8984photo img_8985


As with our previous flight from Copenhagen earlier in the week, our SAS flight was operated by a leased Jet Time 737-800.


photo img_8986


Configured to the maximum capacity of 189 seats, the Jet Time 737-800s are less spacious than standard SAS narrow-body cabins. 


photo img_8987photo img_8988


Seat pitch is 29" (74 cm), which is less than SAS, who have 30" (76cm) seat pitch or more in SAS Plus rows on the narrow-body fleet. The cabin on this Jet Time 737 had newer slimline seats than the previous CPH-OSL flight, which allowed for slightly better knee clearance than on the plane with older seats.

the flight



Boarding wrapped up early–it turned out there were quite a few empty seats in SAS Plus. 


photo img_8991

We pushed back on time and were off after a short taxi. 


photo img_8993photo img_8994


Still a faint glow on sunlight on the horizon as we got above the clouds. 


photo img_8998


This 12 year old 737 had the modern Boeing Sky Interior with pleasant mood-lighting. The newer slimline seats had seat-back pockets at eye level, which carves out more leg space at knee level. 


photo img_8999


The safety card had seen better days.


photo img_9001


Also in the seat pocket was an SAS buy-on-board menu. On the previous Jet Time-operated SAS flight, I'd only seen a Jet Time buy-on-board menu. 


photo img_9002photo img_9004


A small wrap and drink were served in the SAS Plus cabin. 


photo img_9007

A bit disappointing compared to the boxed meal with multiple items we'd recently received on CPH-OSL, especially considering it was dinnertime. But it's barely a 50 minute flight, so not a big deal. 


photo img_9008

The cabin crew were very nice and offered my 4-year-old son some fruit snacks in addition to the wrap. 


photo img_9009

Before we knew it, we'd landed in CPH and arrived at the gate after a quick taxi. 


photo img_9010photo img_9011

Again, no passport checks as we were coming from within the Schengen area, even if Norway is not part of the European Union. 

Baggage was delivered quickly and we were off to the hotel.

Conclusion

Overall a pleasant short hop between Scandinavian capitals. I would have preferred to have flown an SAS aircraft, which are a bit more spacious and are equipped with USB ports and Wi-Fi, but this leased Jet Time aircraft had modern cabins and a very friendly cabin crew. The only disappointing part was the "meal" which was a sad little snack--not nearly as good as the boxed breakfast we'd had in the opposite direction.

    Thanks for sharing this FR, Kevin!

    It's a bit on the expensive side at 240 NOK (~ $22) a ticket

    Definitely why CPH is the best of the SK hubs with its proximity to city center and on metro line. OSL and ARN are definitely pricey to access with the express trains.

    Food was pretty basic, mostly salads, pasta, and soup.

    You were at the CPH lounge in the AM, but this is a good representation of their offering as well. The SK Lounges have good ambiences, but definitely not a destination for gastronomy or sparkling wines.

    Looks like there were still a few open seats in the SAS Plus section.

    Surprising to see such low load factors on a hub-to-hub rotation, but I guess there is enough LCC competition to thin things out.

    A bit disappointing compared to the boxed meal with multiple items we'd recently received on CPH-OSL

    Especially since this flight was during a meal time. Wonder why they just don’t offer people to pick items off the light meals section of the BOB instead to simplify their catering.

    The BT special liveries are everywhere recently.

      Yeah I love how quick, easy, and cheap it is getting to CPH from the city centre vs OSL.

      Especially on a Friday evening during Business travel rush-hour.

      It’s really hit or miss. I liked the breakfast box in the outbound flight but this little wrap thing was just sad. Yeah it would have been better to have been able to pick a sandwich from the BOB.

      Thanks for stopping by!
