All packed up and ready to go! ARN-CPH, of course, features a nice bottle of Ringi apple juice. A meal at Steff’s was quickly devoured. In fact, so quickly I forgot to take a photo.
Breakfast before landing.
Onboard CPH-HKG! Good to be back on board!
The first flight of this trip is operated by Edelweiss. Love their liveries with the flowers.
Slept through the service but woke up just in time to see the big Victorinox logo on ZRH approach.
As I had an outbound Lufthansa First class flight the same day, I was admitted in to the First Class Lounge in Zurich.
Realy bad weather in Stockholm today, some 90% of the flights ended up cancelled.
So I decided to have a bite to eat at Pontus In The Air in the AMEX Platinum / Centurion lounge.
And a meatball sub. Then the notification came - the flight to CPH had been cancelled.
“Please head to the ticket office in the departures hall, they will get you rebooked” is what I was told at the gate.
Taking the morning flight to Frankfurt will allow for a quick trip to the city before the adventure begins!
I got a few boxes of the amazing pralines that SAS serve to go.
After making my wallet €9.55 lighter, I could head towards Frankfurt city to meet a friend for a few hours.
Checked in and good to go! This time westbound, to the Windy City!
My home for the coming 9 hours.
Starter. Carpaccio a la SAS.
Fish, potatoes and a messy tablecloth.
Gute Glass raspberry sorbet and a rhubarb pie. Very tasty.
Just like any other day of the Stockholm Spring, it’s a good day for travel!
Today I rode the airport coaches as I had loads of time, and it’s a great way of getting to the airport for 99 SEK.
Checked in and good to go, perfect for some rehydration at my second home, the SAS Gold lounge at ARN.
Celebrations were in place at Stockholm Arlanda airport. Finally, I was leaving the country.
A short, 52 minute flight to CPH later, I was ready to board the A340-300 taking me to Beijing.
The view from seat 2H.
A very nice shrimp sandwich as a starter.
Checked in and good to go!
One of the 4 intercontinental flights this afternoon.
Row 41 in economy, “Ghetto Business”.
The Plane Ale from Mikkeller is very nice.
Twelve months later, nothing’s changed.
An early morning flight to CPH.
Love the huge SAS A340 model at the CPH lounge.. The things I’d do to have that one at home.
Boarding the bird taking me across the puddle. Seated in SAS PLUS at row 20.
Slept through meal service(s) and most of the flight, but woke up for an hour to see a snow covered Greenland.
LN-RKR will take us to HKG today!
It’s the new “A330E” for SAS, where the “E” stands for “Enhanced” or “EEEEEEEEeee, I am still not a NEO so listen to my loud engines”!
Row 41 has some very good legroom.
Pushback on time!
Two different Mikkeller beers, specially brewed for SAS.
