SAS Introduces Airbus A340-300 on Chicago-Copenhagen

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."
