SAS has yet to declare which aircraft it might employ in its services to JFK. In the Copenhagen-Newark route, SAS now start operates its services with its Airbus A330-300 fleet.
These aircraft have the capacity to carry up to 266 passengers in a 3-class configuration (178 in economy, 56 in premium economy, and 32 in business).
Nonetheless, SAS is scheduling 2 daily flight services for next February 2023 on this route and, according to Cirium, is looking to employ its narrowbody Airbus A321neo fleet, just like it currently does in routes from Copenhagen to Boston and Washington. For the route to JFK, SAS could do the same. We will have to wait and see.
