10 Apr 2015 by GrahamSmith

SAS passengers can now take an interactive Google Street View video tour of the airline's new-look long-haul aircraft.

The Scandinavian carrier has teamed up with the technology giant to grant unrestricted access to the aircraft's three-class interior.

SAS is upgrading cabins on-board seven long-haul A330 and A340 aircraft. The first entered service less than two months ago (see news, February 17), followed by a second upgraded plane at the end of March.

The airline also has four new A330-300s scheduled for delivery this year and next, and eight A350-900s to be delivered from 2018 onwards with an option on an additional six.

The redesign features new cabins, a new on-demand in-flight entertainment system with high-definition screens and wifi access in all classes.

SAS Business contains massage seats in a 1-2-1 configuration. Each seat has direct access to an aisle, an individual power outlet and USB port, and can be folded fully-flat with a minimum length of 77 ins. The IFE screens are 15 inches, while the bedding comes from Hästens, the oldest bed manufacturer in Sweden.

SAS Plus (premium economy) is in a 2-3-2 configuration with a seat pitch of 37/38 inches. The IFE screen is 12 ins and each seat has an individual power outlet and USB port.

SAS Go (economy) is configured 2-4-2 configuration with a seat pitch of 31/32 inches. The IFE screen is nine inches and there is one power outlet per pair of seats and individual USB ports.
