Hi all, I was waiting to board my Ryanair flight back to BRS at EIDW on Saturday evening at about 19.00 when a SAS A340 taxied past the gate. Do SAS regularly use aircraft of this size on this route as I had imagined they'd have normally used something smaller? Does anyone know why this particular aircraft was at Dublin, could it have been some sort of diversion?

No they dont send the A340s to DUB. They even dont serve DUB with their own metal since they retired the Q400s. Have to be a diversion,

They certainly do serve DUB with their array of narrow body types. CPH, OSL and Stockholm all served by SAS. I dont think they sent Q400's at all!


The A340s go for MX at the SR Technics facility in DUB. Most likely this is the reason.

The a/c that SAS use to DUB is now used on routes that was operated by the Q400s. Therefore SAS dont serve DUB with their own metal now days.

Correct, SAS have never sent a Q400 into DUB and SRtechnics have the contract for maintenance
on the A330 and A340.

SAS still serve DUB with there own aircraft i saw a couple of MD's and a 736 over the weekend although
in the past few weeks they had a 735 leased from Luxair operating the DUB-CPH route.

This is only applicable for the CPH-DUB route. SAS (NO and SE) still uses their own aircraft from OSL and ARN, while CPH-DUB is operates by chartered aircrafts
So to say SAS doesn't serve DUB with their own metal are wrong

No, if you talk about CPH, they dont use their own metal.

Same reason you sometimes see Virgin there.

I did not think we were talking about CPH specifically. The discussion was only about SAS.

The decision not to send SAS crews aircraft to DUB was a temporary scheduling one, when booking on-line or through a GDS the flights are not codeshares or "operated by", they are SAS flights. SAS crews will once again fly the CPH-DUB route, and could do so at any time, to say they dont serve DUB with their own metal implies a codeshare/interlinging agreement. Its just a temporary wet lease.

SAS serves CPH-DUB, ARN-DUB and OSL-DUB with their MD80, 737 and A319/321 aircraft.

Both statements are wrong. SAS does serve CPH-DUB, ARN-DUB and OSL-DUB with their MD80, 737 and A321 aircraft.

I was going to say that on Friday the CPH flight in the morning was done by an SK 321, this I know for a fact as my mate worked it.

Yes it may vary due to the Dash meltdown, but the point is SAS definitely fly their own metal to DUB.

Did a search for CPH-DUB for next week, and it appears that SAS themselves fly the afternoon flight, while the morning flight is operated by Luxair (735)
