This was my first international flight with Scandinavian Airlines. I flew from Chicago to Stockholm, and then from Stockholm to Moscow, Russia. These two international flights were very different; I enjoyed the first, but the latter was not very pleasant. The long flight to Stockholm had much more to offer: free snacks, drinks (a choice of tea, coffee, pop, several kinds of juice, and wine), a decent meal, wide choice of movies to watch, music to listen to, and some computer games to play. The other flight, Stockholm - Moscow, had none of that. There was no TV screens or headphones for music, and if you wanted a snack or a drink, you had to pay for it. The prices were steep, too: 3 Euros for a can of pop (about $6). The Stockholm - Moscow flight is much shorter, of course, so I can understand no TV, but charging so much for food is a bit over the top, in my opinion. Airline tickets are expensive enough.

I flew economy class, so there wasn't much leg room, barely enough for a taller person, but that's common for economy class. Service was good, flight attendants very nice and attentive, all of them speaking good English. My connection in Stockholm was smooth and on time; all my luggage had made it to the final destination just fine, I have no complaints. Overall, I would say SAS is a good airline, but they could improve their shorter flights.
