SK - OSL (Nordics)-BKK - 9677 NOK / $927 one-way - Business

Not the cheapest one-way we have ever seen from Europe to Thailand, but SAS just filed a new sale fare from Scandinavia to Bangkok, Thailand (BKK) - 9677 NOK or $927 USD one-way on dates in April 2024. The fare is 6000 NOK less than if you flew the same flight in economy!

OSL-BKK is the cheapest, but you can fly from other locations across the Nordics for lower than normal prices - HEL, CPH, MMX, etc.

Once you get to Thailand you can add flights from Bangkok Airways (for example Phuket (HKT) is 11038 NOK / $1056 one-way)

You can get 1 stopover free and another at 75 EUR. Travel between April 1 and April 18, 2024.

I asked my Scandinavian friends about the pattern of cheap premium cabin fares from there, and answers were along the lines of:
- They’d rather save money on flying no matter the fare difference so they choose Economy
- Flight shaming is big so there’s extra social stigma about flying Biz & doing more environmental harm
- Fewer magnitudes more wealthy people unlike say America & Asia, so fewer customers who are price insensitive especially to leisure destinations (company isn’t paying)

Interesting! I guess I should ask my family in Norway a similar question next time I talk to them to see how they explain it. I had always thought the fares were low due to competition from Norwegian, then the pandemic hit and that airline hugely downsized, but the low fares remained, so I wasn't sure what was driving that.

Don't forget that SAS is leaving Star Alliance this year.. perhaps as early as Q2. Thus if you are planning on collecting *A miles on this fare, travel soon... or consider Skyteam accrual instead.
Nobody seems to know exactly when, so YMMV.

While no date has been confirmed, this switch is expected to occur in Q2 2024, sometime between April and June.

Obviously this can always be credited to SAS mileage program. Nobody is contesting this.

The CEO recently confirmed that it will be before the switch to winter schedule (late-October) but after the summer vacation rush (finishes mid/late-August). Early October seems most likely.

Another point is that flights from Scandinavia are cargo heavy, usually carrying fresh fish to Asia, so the passenger cabin is somewhat subsidised.

Finally, Nordics are generally calm and quiet in nature, so there’s no requirement to book a premium cabin to guarantee a peaceful flight.
