Scandinavian Airlines Reviews of Passenger
Passengers love to ride with Scandinavian Airlines however recently customers are getting unconvinced with the inconsistency of the airlines service. I read some of the Scandinavian Airline reviews and this reviewer caught my attention when he said “I had not flown SAS for a few years, on my recent business class trips from Frankfurt to Stockholm then from Stockholm to London on SAS I realized this is no longer a full service airline. Paying business class fares for a budget experience is silly, will make sure to avoid this airline whenever possible or downgrade to economy if there is no other option.” she gave the airline a 2 out of 10 rating by AirlineRatings.com
She ended her review with an editor’s comment saying “SAS call themselves full service but the on board product is really, like you say, low cost. The competition in the market place almost forced them to be this way to allow them to remain competitive and indeed survive.”
