This question already has an answer here:

I know that both "in order to Verb" phrase and "so as to Verb" phrase describe the purpose of doing something.

But, I would like to know if there are any differences between them.

For example, the below two sentences might be examined about it.

Sentence A: "We went early so as to get good seats."

Sentence B: "We went early in order to get good seats."
