After visiting the SAS Business Lounge, we gathered our items and proceeded to Gate A17. I don’t get to travel in Europe near as much as I would like to. Flying on SAS out of Copenhagen was going to be enjoyable as I was looking forward to experiencing an airport in another country, and the different airlines that are present. Walking to gate A17 I frequently would stop and gaze at the different planes out on the tarmac. Before long we arrived at our gate and waited to board. It was relatively crowded, as we waited to board our flight.
Our SAS flight was early in the morning at 7:05am, so we arrived to the Copenhagen airport by 4:30am. We were booked into intra-European business class, which for SAS means an upfront economy seat with the middle seat blocked. It also meant we could fortunately use the business class check-in counter. Even this early in the morning, that line was long and slow, and I noticed the economy line was worse. It took us 40 minutes to wait in line and then check in. The attitude by the SAS associates was cold and apathetic.
