SAS F28 Routes?

After SAS inherited a fleet of F28s from Swedish domestic airline Linjeflyg in 1992, was the type assigned regularly on scheduled flights to points outside of Sweden?

On the airliners.net data base I found photos of SAS F28s in their full pre-1998 livery taken outside of Sweden at 13 airports: CPH, AMS, STN, LHR, HEL, CDG, DUS, HAM, STR, VIE, BRU, FRA, and PRG -- and a number of the captions with these photos indicate the arrival/departure was from/to CPH, further suggesting scheduled rather than charter flights to the destinations listed.

Also, did SAS assign F28s to some of their non-stop scheduled flights from Scandinavian points other than CPH to points on the European continent? Were any trans-border routes within Scandinavia operated regularly with the type? And did the F28s in SAS colors continue to serve primarily on Swedish domestic routes as they had done with Linjeflyg? Before being absorbed into SAS, did Linjeflyg have any scheduled routes to points outside of Sweden?

Thanks for any information you can offer.

During that time I often saw SK F28-s in TLL from ARN. Before that, the route was serviced with DC-9-20's and -40's. Now it's a Dash 8. We just keep getting downgraded...

This could be wrong....However I do not believe SAS operates the F28. After they were assessed as payload limited they transfered to Air Botnia. Air Botnia has now chosen to retire the type and place Avro's RJ85 into service. Good for pax's cause the Avro has far more room. The only draw back is block times will increase about ten minutes on most Air Botnia legs. Just more time to soak up the good inflight service!
