SAS has released images of the three classes on its newly-delivered A350-900 aircraft.
Business class (above) has 40 seats in a 1-2-1 configuration.
The Thompson Vantage XL seats have an 18.5-inch IFE screen, PC and USB sockets and a new bi-fold tray table with a personal device holder.
The bed measures at least 196cm (more on some seats) and the seat can provide a “light foot massage”.
The business cabin has a newly-designed welcome area with inlaid lights, which will serve as a self-serve bar during the flight.
Premium economy, called “SAS Plus”, has 32 seats which are a new model for the airline.
Thee seats, by Collins Aerospace, include a leg rest, 13.3-inch screens, and PC/USB ports.
A divider separates the cabin from business and economy, and will include a ‘snack shop’ with items available to purchase which SAS says will encourage passengers to get up and move around.
There are 228 economy seats with 11.6-inch IFE screens, USB ports, bi-fold meal tables and a water bottle holder.
SAS said the A350 also offers redesigned galleys with larger work surfaces for cabin crew, as well as iPads to make it easier to report faults to maintenance.
