Scandinavian Airline System ( SAS ) is celebrating it's 60 years these days and there was some interesting facts in the newspaper www.vg.no in Norway today:


SAS is a joint airline from Sweden, Denmark and Norway.

Did you know that the Danish part of SAS, DLL ( Det Danske Luftfartsselskab ) is the worlds oldest airline, even though the same is claimed by KLM ?


That SAS in the beginning had DC-7C planes with only 44 luxurious passanger seats. Sounds like heaven today, but back then it took 50 hours from Copenhagen to Tokyo.

The airline flew from Skandinavia to Buenos Aires via Paris, Lisbon, Dakar, Reclife, Rio de Janeiro and Montevideo.

Thats one hell of a flight..................

It's certainly right that DDL is older than KLM, but the Danish part has not been flying using its own name for many years - KLM has. Even during WWII KLM continued to fly in the Caribbean.

I'd do it. Sounds fun! Especially in the age of completely gorgeous f/as and REAL service.
