This week’s trip report is a review of SAS A330 Business Class in 2023, from Miami to Stockholm. I found a cheap fare to the United States that included the route Stockholm-London-San Francisco-Miami-Stockholm, all for under 7500 SEK in Economy Class.
The final leg wasn’t supposed to be in Business Class, but when I arrived at the check-in desk, I asked if there were any available seats to upgrade using EuroBonus points, and they said yes! There were two seats left, and they charged 50k EuroBonus points to do the upgrade (and no cash at all).
The only “unfortunate” part was that the two seats were in the middle of the plane, so now direct access to any window. Instead, I recorded the takeoff through the IFE screen.
I’ve flown the A330 in SAS Business before (from Chicago), but I was very excited to try this direct flight from Miami. The schedule was convenient, departing in the evening and arriving the next morning in Stockholm.
For this trip I paid 7500 SEK and 50k EuroBonus points (multi-city itinerary trip, and the returning leg in SAS Business).

Conclusion: Miami to Stockholm With SAS
The SAS Business Class cabin remains one of the best in the industry: wide seats, spacious, comfortable, and with a fancy toiled and coffee bar. The IFE system is responsive and has plenty of options to choose from in multiple languages. Compared to the A350, the SAS business on the A330 has slightly older, smaller screens, and fewer options in the entertainment system. The Nordic design and mood lighting certainly adds a plus to the environment.
A BIG plus is the free, fast wifi onboard for Business Class and EuroBonus Gold members. You can actually work onboard without worrying about those stupid 20MB vouchers like with Iberia or Swiss.
The soft product is excellent. First, the crew is always smiling, kind, and attentive. They constantly check on their passengers and make sure they are happy. The amenity kit is solid, made of sustainable sources. The blanket, pillow, and mattress are soft and high-quality. The meal services were delicious, and even though there was no hot meal for breakfast, the service is filling and tasty.
It’s actually a shame that this flight is only seven hours, as it is a cabin you can easily enjoy for twice as much. Overall, a great option to fly to Scandinavia on a direct route, and even paying for the full-fare ticket, it remains cheaper than alternatives like Lufthansa, Swiss, or Air France with a stopover.
