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?

Quoting B747forever (Reply 3): 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.
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
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.
Next flights: MAN-ORK-LHR(EI)-MAN(BD); MAN-LHR(BD)-ORK (EI); DUB-ZRH-LAX (LX) LAX-YYZ (AC) YYZ-YHZ-LHR(AC)-DUB(BD)
SAS serves CPH-DUB, ARN-DUB and OSL-DUB with their MD80, 737 and A319/321 aircraft.
