Having never flown them, I'd previously had the impression that SAS was a good "national" carrier. What we experienced was a fairly expensive "no-frills" carrier similar to RyanAir, but unexpected as such. Stuttgart>Copenhagen>Reykjavik and return, the longest portion 3 hours. No entertainment, no "non-pay" snacks or beverage besides tea/coffee/water...and we were told when asking for a second 200 ml cup of water that we were "allowed" one, if we wanted more...pay €3 for 500 ml bottle. Very narrow seats, only a few degrees of recline, rows closely spaced. Saw aircrew arrive 23 minutes prior to scheduled departure (Copenhagen>Reykjavik); delay blamed on "lots of luggage". Preflight and "walk-around" in less than 20 minutes? NOT! Similar to going through Paris de Gaulle, we will never fly this airline again unless it saves us hundred$ per ticket; I think one of the "S's" in SAS has stands for something that rhymes with "muck". At least now we know what to expect from this poor excuse of a national carrier.
