Two SAS Widebodies Damaged

Two SAS widebodies have been damaged today in two different minor accidents on the ground. At ARN the jetway/walkway hit the aircraft too hard. At CPH a cargo truck hit the luggage door. They were due for EWR and ORD, were both fully booked (261 pax each) and were both taken out of service.

I would say it's bad luck to have two out of the eleven widebodies damaged the same day. Or... isn't it bad luck? Do you think there is something else than luck involved?

SAS' widebody fleet consists of 7 A343 and 4 333.

Sounds unfortunate for SAS, were any other aircraft able to operate these two flights instead? Or where they just simply cancelled?

Cheers,
Ian.

Booth were A330-300s, I guess. SAS mostly use A330s on North-Atlantic routes.

Hmm... two cancelled intercontinental flights with a total of 522 passengers... that's going to be expensive under the new European compensation rules. Ouch.

Edit: plus of course the return passengers who are also covered since SAS is a community carrier.

Maybe UA can take back one or two of their T7 from the dessert and wet lease them to SAS for some days? Or are they not available on short term?

Ouch! Having 2 mainline a/c damaged in one day is not a good situation. There goes the profits this month. Are there any estimates how long these a/c will be out of service?

Dunno, when they are back in service, but they have 24 hours to fix them, before they are scheduled to go again. It shouldn't be too hard to fix.

I just remembered that SAS is currently leasing a B767-300 from UA for the IAD-ARK or CPH route.

SAS might be able to get their hands on a Air Atlanta B747 or a European 747. When Aer Lingus had two of their A330s damaged they leased a World Airways MD-11 and a Air Plus Comet B747-200.

The A340 used to fly the ORD and EWR routes and now its the A340s and A330s.

My sister is flying CPH-ORD next Sunday March 27th. Does anyone think that the schedule will still be affected at that point, or are these problems most likely a quick fix? She's really looking forward to flying the A333, so if there's an equipment change, she'll be dissapointed.

ORD777, the CPHORD run is normally a 343, the 333 is used on the run from ARN to ORD.

As SAS has been installing a kind of internet connection onboard their longhauls, the A330 has been flying CPH-ORD intstead of the A340 this winter. March 27th however is the summer timetable will take over and the A340 is back, unfortunately. Your sister can if she wants to get up early fly via ARN to get ride on A330.

Thanks SASA330300,

That's actually what's she's probably flying. I knew that she was flying the A333 but didn't really know her exact itinerary. Do you think the ARN flight will still be affected then?

None of SAS' transatlantic flights from ARN this morning are cancelled. I would guess that the damage caused by the jetway/walkway has been repaired, at least temporarily.

I have no info regarding the a/c at CPH. Anyone?

Aftonbladet (the link posted by Tavve) doesn't say anything about CPH. It looks like both incidents happened at ARN.
