Hi all, This is my first travel report of my first trip in business class from Stockholm to Hong Kong in SAS newly refurbished cabin. I hope you´ll enjoy it. I was very excited to take this trip as I had just turned 30 a few days before the trip and this was sort of a belated birthday present / remedy for a premature mid-life-crises. The reason my girlfriend and I has chosen Hong Kong as our destination was because I had never been to China and that my partner had actually grown up in neighbouring Guangzhou. We had bought the tickets during on of SAS many sales of tickets for this new direction flight that they had just opened in fall 2015. We had paid a little less than SEK 4300 (ca. € 460, £ 355 or $ 506) per person for the return trip, which is really not much money all things considered.... It got even better when my request for a upgrade with points was cleared two days before the trip from SAS Go to SAS Plus. I was looking forward to flying SAS Plus, SAS economy extra class, since I consider it very good value for money (more about SAS Plus in another trip report). However, the unthinkable happened. When I wanted to check-in 24 hours before departure, this is what I could see on my app.... Moments later I got an email from SAS, telling me that they had awarded me with an courtesy upgrade to thank me for my loyalty as a Eurobonus Diamond. I didn´t know that I was even possible to get a upgrade on top of an upgrade, but hey, whom am I to argue Even better, our flight was scheduled to be carried with SAS newly refurbished cabin. Very excited about our first trip in business class, my partner and I headed to Arlanda airport using the airport coach service Flygbussarna. The weather that day in Stockholm really wanted to you to leave the place. It was just about freezing and overcast, just like it has been for weeks. The flight was scheduled to depart at ten to 2pm, so we headed to the newly opened SAS Gold Lounge, after a much delayed check-in. I think has done a really good job with their new lounges in Stockholm. The new Gold lounge for Star Alliance members offers a lot more space than before, as well as better food. The lounge looks a lot like IKEA, which seems logical. Also, I personally like "egalitarian" atmosphere, but you can´t argue about taste. On the menu this day was salmon, pasta, chicken and salad. There was also soup, cheese and a pretty well-stocked bar with wine, sparkling wine, liquors etc. I should not lament the lack of cakes or other overly sweet foods, but we all have our weak spots right? Alcohol-free lunch, since I was still "on-the-clock". But not for long..
