Normally I would not write a whole blogpost about a flight I have been on, however this one is quite special and is so worth to mention. It is without a doubt the best flight I have ever been on , it is nothing like a normal flight experience and this is why.........
I am talking about the business flight from Stavanger, Norway to Houston, Texas, yes it is an all business flight from SAS (Scandinavian Airlines) in co operation with Privat Air. The Boeing 737-700 is custom made to transport 44 passengers on an 10 hour flight, business style and comfort all the way for everyone.
It is not only the seats, food and drink that makes this flight so special, it is the combination of all this and the crews service and friendliness that is the icing on the cake here. Remember that there is maximum 44 passengers on board and that makes the "environment" a little more exclusive and you really feel like you are on a private plane. The crew really makes you feel special and welcome as well, they are absolutely great. Even though you can get a completely flat bed and the toilet is quite small (who cares, you are not going to spend that much time in there anyway), you just forget about it as the rest of the flight is so good. I must admit that I personally thinks that SAS have some of the best air plane food in the world and now they have their own beer which is really good. I mean really good!
The flight leaves from Stavanger around 4 pm so it is the perfect time to eat, drink and just enjoy the flight. This type of aircraft does not have an entertainment system with a TV monitor in the chair in front of you as, so in order to solve this the airline lends you an Ipad with movies and music for the flight.
And last but not least, when you fly from Stavanger to Houston you fly over Greenland and you get the most fabulous view ever, especially when the weather is clear and nice.
