As a follow-up to that last post, we are pretty well served for flights to Stockholm with Gatwick, Heathrow and Stansted all flying out. No surprise that Heathrow has the greatest choice so I ended up going SAS. A faultless, efficient, flight with an online or txt based check in. The online version allows you to choose your seat (would be nice to try that EasyJet…. and if RyanAir did it you know youd have to pay an extra £20 for it!)…. txt based version intrigued me, but I didnt try it. This is actually an important point because you need to print your boarding card out most of the time (although there are a few smartphone apps that allow you to retried it). SAS only allow you to check in 22 hours ahead, which means if you are staying over then you somehow have to print out a boarding card. Often a strangely difficult thing to do!! EasyJet allow check-in 60 days ahead which is far more flexible.
