SAS Business Class LAX CPH Sitz 6H Weitwinkel

Scandinavian Airlines is putting its Airbus A321neo to good use: The airline deploys the long-haul narrow body on non-stop flights between Oslo and New York during their winter schedule. Currently, business class tickets for this service are available for as little as €1,377 (~NOK 15,547). You can also board their Airbus A330-300 nonstop from Stockholm for €1,383 (~SEK 15,548).

Our availability calendar highlights all possible flight dates at the lowest price for trips of 6 to 28 days. You can either be redirected to Skyscanner to find the cheapest online travel agency or book directly on SAS’ website:

SK OSL NYC C 1373
Nonstop flights in April and May for €1,340.

SAS uses Airbus A321neo on the nonstop flights from Oslo. These come with lie-flat seats in an alternating 2-2 and 1-1 pattern in business class. You can find the seat map here and a review of the product here.

If you fly from Stockholm or Copenhagen, an Airbus A330handles long-haul duties. These planes feature a 1-2-1 seating pattern in business class.

In its wide-body fleet, Scandinavian airline SAS has very big and comfortable seats, each offering direct access to the aisle. There’s a lot of storage room and also a very big desk which is perfect to work. The seats alternate between either being directly next to the window or directly at the aisle. There’s a different business class in their long-haul A321, however, which is less spacious. An upside of flying SAS: Free unlimited Wi-Fi! So it’s not a bad choice for hard-working businessmen.

Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?

More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are two main reasons for that:

Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airline has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.

If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward information like flight changes instead of receiving them directly from the airline. In many cases, you may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem-solving.

This especially applies to premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.

Baggage and Other Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are industry standard by now. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.

This also applies to other things like food services, insurances or priority treatment. In almost all cases, you pay less for additional amenities when booking on the airlines’ website.

Miles & Points

SAS issues these tickets in booking class J. Star Alliance frequent flyers can earn the following mileage for a nonstop ticket:

  • 12,000 Points on SAS EuroBonus

SAS leaves Star Alliance on August 31, 2024, and will most likely join SkyTeam at the end of the year. Currently, we have no information where and how you can earn points with these flights, except for SAS’ own EuroBonus program.

Destination

Hotel prices in New York usually start at roughly €140, depending on the hotel category. Whichever category and hotel you opt for, make sure to get the best price! Our recommendation is to search on booking.com, or even on our own Travel-Dealz hotel search:

Information & Tips for USA

The USA offers many sights, natural wonders and cultural significance. Thanks to numerous airlines offering flights across the Atlantic, it is always pretty inexpensive to get there. Alternatively, you can also cross the Atlantic by boat.

Immigration, ESTA & Visa Requirements

The USA has one of the strictest entry regulations in the world. Most EU citizens, among others, are lucky to be able to participate in the so-called Visa Waiver Program. If you get an electronic entry permit (ESTA)  for approximately €20, you don’t need a visa for entry.

The Best Time to Visit

Due to its sheer size, the perfect time to visit the USA varies greatly from region to region. In winter, Florida is very popular due to the mild temperatures. In the summer the West and East Coasts are flooded by tourists which drives up the prices for hotels and flights and during the Indian Summer in late autumn New England is a very popular destination. The hurricane season between July and September can be dangerous in the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico. Florida and the southern states are regularly struck by these tropical storms. Blizzards occur from the East Coast to the Midwest during the winter months and regularly put air traffic and public life on hold.

Currency

The US dollar is widely used throughout the world and accepted as a currency in most tourist hotspots worldwide. That being said, carrying cash isn’t necessary in the US, all you need is a credit card! These are very common in the USA and are accepted pretty much everywhere without any issues. If you already have a credit card in your wallet, you should make sure that it does not charge a foreign currency fee if possible. Carrying a few dollars in cash doesn’t hurt though. You might need cash e.g. for the bus ticket if you want to buy it directly from the driver. Most of the time you even have to give exact change.
