Business/Travel Editors CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 13, 2002--From November 19th Scandinavian Airlines will operate Airbus A340-300 on their daily Chicago - Copenhagen service. The A340 has two aisles and a total of 261 seats, of which 54 are Business Class, 24 in the new Economy Extra and 183 in Economy Class. SAS' awarded Business Class, ranked among the top 10 airlines on international routes in a recent survey, has comfortable, ergonomic wide seats designed by the Italian designer Bertone. Passengers have generous legroom and sound comfort. Films, music channels and games are offered on a screen at each seat. A special sleeping chair is also available in Business Class. This state-of-the-art aircraft has three classes. Many passengers have requested an "in-between" class, which is why Economy Extra has been introduced on all A340, with enhanced comfort in the form of wider seats and better pitch and power outlets permitting better possibilities to work onboard. The meal service is the same as in Economy Class. An onboard buffet is available with water, freshly made espresso, food, fruit, wine and beer. This provides flexibility and a welcome opportunity for passengers to stretch their legs. "This is in line with our expansion plans and increase of capacity", says Anders Malm, General Manager for Central USA. "We welcome this new aircraft, which will add approximately 30 percent more capacity. Spring 2003 our daily Chicago - Stockholm route will also be operated with Airbus."
