This Review of the SAS Lounge at Copenhagen Airport is my husband's, from his visit to the lounge after our Denmark site inspection. Stay tuned for his SAS Business Class Review and Video.

SAS Lounge Copenhagen Amenities
The lounge is large and spacious and has a slightly rustic feel to it. The lounge is replete with modern and stylish Danish lighting and furniture, of course.
There is a dedicated work area, with stools and computer screens and keyboards with internet access, as well as a separate work area with desks.
There is a separate relaxation room, although the room is very light without shades, so personal eyeshades would be necessary. There are a few reclining chairs for a quick nap.
There is an ample selection of magazines, mostly European.
Showers are available as well, with a lovely rain shower fixture. The water pressure was good and was quite refreshing before my flight. The only issue I had was that the water was not very warm at all, even at the hottest setting.
SAS Lounge Copenhagen Food and Drink
I liked the very casual, but nicely designed eating area, with group tables for communal meals. Almost no one was in the lounge so I had a table to myself. If the lounge had been crowded, the tables would be shared, of course. This is Denmark, after all.
The food selection was rather limited: curry soup, pasta salad, smoked whitefish, bread and cheese, and fresh fruit.
The curry soup, fish, and pasta were wholesome, but not very flavorful at all. Overall, the food was very bland, which was disappointing.
There was a choice of apple or orange juice.
The cappuccino machine made a barely passable cappuccino.
There was also Carlsberg beer on tap and a selection of wines.
Departing the Lounge
After leaving the lounge you have to go through passport control and a security check at the gate, for U.S. bound flights, so be sure to leave time ample time. There was no separate business class boarding by the time I arrived (this was Denmark, where egalitarianism is still hanging on).
Consistent with the Danish spirit, the lounge is very well-designed, with a casual and even rustic feel. There are no ostentatious flourishes. I liked this aspect, and felt very comfortable. And the lounge was quite functional, and covered all the necessities. On the other hand, the food was quite disappointing, particularly in the context of the delicious food we enjoyed in Copenhagen during our trip.
