SAS to go flat

24 Mar 2005 by business traveller

Flat beds and video on demand will be enjoyed by SAS Business Class passengers from next year.

The Scandinavian carrier is introducing flatbeds in Business Class on flights toAsia and theUS fromManchester,Birmingham,Aberdeen andNewcastle, which operate via the SAS hub inCopenhagen.

The beds will be fitted from early next year following the removal of 14 seats from the original A340 Business Class cabin to make room for 60 flatbed seats. The smaller A330 aircraft will have 34 flatbed seats.

With a 61-inch seat pitch, 66cm width and recline of 11 degrees, the seats should be more comfortable than the current Business Class offering, which bar the front row of "sleeper seats" are reclining seats.

With the beds comes improved entertainment for Business Class passengers from video on demand, available through a larger 10.4 inch monitor.
