I understand Braathens is now part of the SAS group and that their aircraft are slowly being repainted into the SAS Braathens version of the SAS group livery.
I presumed that the aircraft concerned would be the ex Braathens 73's but notice on this website that several of the main airlines 736's and 737's are in the new livery. I also note that some of them used to be configured for domestic ops and some for Euro ops.
What will be the exact status of SAS Braathens. Will it fly ex Braathens routes or will it be confined to Norweigan routes. Also which aircraft will make up the final airline?

The SAS Braathens fleet will be made up of Braathens fleet of Boeing 737-400/500/700 aswell as a good chunk of SAS Norway's fleet of B737-600/700/800 and SAS Commuter's remaining Fokker 50.
All in all the fleet will be around 42 B737s and 5 F50s.
SAS Braathens will be flying domestic Norwegian routes, and International routes from Norway. However they will not fly on long haul routes, and a portion of the intra Scandinavian routes will be operated by other parts of the SAS group.
