|IcelandAir Saga Lounge|
Time came to board our flight and the short 3 hour flight to Copenhagen was uneventful. That is but for the meal that they served us for breakfast. Remember that vegetarian meal we were served on the flight from Boston? Yup, that was the same breakfast they served us on this flight. We asked the flight attendant if she could get us something, anything different and she wasn't sure if she could. Luckily, since I had flown IcelandAir previously, I knew that they did have vegetarian sandwiches in Economy Comfort. The flight attendant eventually came back with two sandwiches and although we didn't have any of the other amenities that came with flying Saga Class (a tray, glass, flatware), we at least had a meal.

Once inside the SAS Lounge, we presented our tickets and searched for somewhere to sit. This lounge is quite large with the SAS Business lounge upstairs and the SAS Scandinavian lounge downstairs in the C terminal.
Think minimalist Scandinavian design and you will know exactly what the lounge looks like. There is an abundance of seating and computers and printers for use as well. We found a seat on the far end of the lounge near the windows.
I loved that they had free wireless printing available as I needed to print something from my iPhone. I sat with my bottle of Carlsberg citrus sparkling water and did a little work before our flight. Strangely enough, my iPhone connected without password but my iPad needed it, which was weird. Don't worry as the passwords are on little cards all around the lounge.
|Waiting at gate to board plane|
We didn't know if they were going to announce flights or not within the lounge so we didn't want to leave anything to chance. Grabbing up all of our belongings, we left the lounge and walked over to our gate. Unlike US airports, there was no one waiting, no information available, nothing at all. We didn't want to get in line since there were only a few people waiting and we didn't want to look like crazy people, but that was a mistake. With everyone being so incredibly polite, we had to let everyone go before us as we hadn't gotten in line. If you are expecting zones or classes to be called at the gate, don't. Queue up or you'll be left waiting for some time.
Our flight was delayed for some time because a Canadian woman checked her bag but never showed up for the flight so they needed to take her bag off the plane. Once that was corrected we were off.

Our one hour flight to Berlin was uneventful and as quickly as we ascended into the clouds high above Copenhagen, we were soon descending into Berlin. The SAS flight attendants were attentive and professional and I wouldn't hesitate flying SAS again.
