I´ll be flying with my wife next September from LIS to OSL with Braathens. I know well Braathens since many years ago, they used to stop by LIS on their way to Madeira and Canarias. They were also a regular visitor to FAO. Now that I´m trying for the first time them your feedback would be greatly appreciated. They are flying to LIS with their 737-700 but in the timetable it says 737-400, so maybe you can also clear me that out.

I flew Braathens last August OSL-TOS and LYR-OSL and was pretty non-plussed with the whole experience. Didn't think they were necessarily a bad airline, but nothing about them gave me the impression that I'd just flown with a great airline either.
My flight LYR-OSL was three hours, and once they'd done one round of drink/snack sales, the F/A's pretty much disappeared for the remainder of the flight.
That said, they got me safely from A to B, and I got some great fares with them too.
I'm in the process of planning another trip to Norway for this August, and currently my leaning for choice of airline is Norwegian - much friendlier service.
