I went back to visit a friend in economy leaving my unopened drink and snack on my table...when I return the drink was empty and an empty snack wrapper lay on the tray....seated near the lavatory.

This issue is a regular feature on FT.
The main reason for the elite of Y using the front loo where the plebs sit is the BOB cart, and the crew on the BOB cart being, er, how to put this nicely? - not willing to move said cart.
And for some of us, when we need to go, we need to go.

SAS doesn't sell business class on shorthaul. Their highest cabin is "SAS Plus," which on longhaul is Premium Economy. Just a branding thing I guess, but also sets expectations at their appropriate level for the seats/service on their shorthaul product, IMHO.

As I understand it the ex-BMI aircraft have a different style of cabin divider to the rest of the fleet. Not only is this less sturdy and more prone to damage, replacement parts are hard to come by hence many missing dividers.

You'll know better than me as it's been years since I last flew them. That was definitely in J ARN-FCO.

Not sure why the issue is blamed on BoB. When there was 'free' food & drink in economy didn't the 'free' food & beverage cart(s) take up as much aisle space as the BoB trolley?

As noted previously, this is one of the most popular recurring topics on the board.

I usually fly up front. I also try to assume the best of those individuals who traverse cabins to use the front lavatory, as I have had a significant number of operations for Crohn's disease.

When I have to go, I have to go.

Yes, but the service was a lot quicker. No faffing around for card payments etc.

The BoB service can be very slow on longer ET flights given higher uptake. There is no method of doing it quicker however, so no one is at fault for that.
