That's a lame offer - I think CPH lounge doesn't worth anything close to EUR 22 per person. If you need wifi it's free all over CPH. Also nothing at SK's long haul destinations such as PVG.

This is nothing new, it's been possible to buy access for several years.

SAS does not have any SAS lounge at PVG, so the offer is obviously not available there.

Additionally it can well be worth the money if you're looking to get hand of some beers and some light snacks before your flight.

SAS started with a trial during the Easter holiday 2012, and because of the positive result, implemented this offer starting in summer holiday period 2012 for ARN, CPH and OSL.

What's new is:
  • The price is less.
  • It started last Wednesday.
  • There is no mention of "summer", so this might be permanent. OSL domestic, ORD, EWR and CDG are supposed to start on September 1st, so it looks as if it is permanent.
  • There are more airports available in this offer.
  • It can be purchased during on-line check-in.

AFAIK the price is comparable to what other airline lounges are charging.

I thought SK Plus Pax can use the lounge in PVG, that's why I thought that PVG lounge is SK's

Now I know why there was a total drunk on our flight that smells like you are at Noerreport Station on a Friday night. He smelled so bad and snored the whole way My kids sat right behind him and they said he smelled bad - the guy sat next to him got moved but not those who were in front of/behind him.

There is another thread about how 'bad' the CPH SK Flagship lounge is. If you pay for it, you can choose to use CPH Apartment instead.

It'd only be worth if you want to take a shower in the CPH lounge after a long haul flight in GO and you have some time to kill before your connection leaves. Otherwise there's a lot of real food sold at those airports for that price, most airports have some free or cheap wifi now anyway and waiting for one hour in the lounge with the common peasant can be survived, I can tell from experience. Anyway, apart from the shower I don't think it's worth the money.

ps. As mentioned before: it's not new. SAS has advertised it on their check in machines in OSL for over a year now. The price is different, though, it's cheaper now.

pps. Smelly, drunk passengers are -together with babies who cry all the time and parents who just don't care- the most annoying thing you can encounter on especially long haul flights. I know I don't look or smell my best when deplaning such flights, that's why I am very happy with the shower at the CPH lounge. Someone should have informed mister passed-out-drunk about the option.
