Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) is showcasing the newly refurbished cabin interiors of its A330 and A340 fleet using a Google Street View camera mounted in each of the aisles.

Looks quite impressive and well worth a look. New Cabin Street View - SAS

Use the menus to jump from business to other classes, or just use the usual arrow keys or mouse to move around like you do on a Google Streat View map.

Can't tell if the coach seats are more comfortable than the old ones.

They need it.

If they only would change those "sourer than grapes" old Swedish male stewards too - it would be great.

The refurbishments will give passengers the impression that they've flying in a new aircraft, but that's not the case at all. Their A330s and A340s are all getting a bit old in the tooth with most of them dating from 2003 or earlier. They've just taken delivery of an ex-LAN Airlines A340 which was built in 1997 even.

Finland's flag carrier Finnair on the other hand is the European launch customer for the new Airbus A350 and they're in the process of modernising their whole fleet.

Considering SAS is the national airline of Denmark, Norway and Sweden, you'd have thought there would have been enough money in the bank to buy a new aircraft instead purchasing some piece of junk which is already 18 years old.

It's my understanding that only one aircraft has been updated so far.

Didn’t know SAS still flies! It was a bigger player in the 60s I recall.
