Premium cabin on new 717s provides access to seating in the front of the aircraft and a meal service. Value for money is okay - the fare and upgrade charge were significantly lower than for other full service airlines. If you are a Star Gold customer this is simply not worth it as you already have access to the SAS lounges. LHR-HEL breakfast was a plastic box no refinements and free water in addition to free tea/coffee provided in Economy. A very basic meal with a small portion of hot food. HEL-LHR was better with a hot meal and courteous crew keen to refill drinks. Other Star members on similar flight lengths (Turkish Aegean TAP) do a much better job. This is basic flying at the low cost end of the alliance. I have flown SAS Business/Economy Extra in the past and found service to be better the overwhelming impression is of plastic reduced cost and service stripped down to the bare minimum. The 717 is configured for 115 seats in 2x3 and not 120 seats as some have commented; there is no seatmap available anywhere. Star Gold customers are given preferential seating.
