According to the Norwegian site E24.no SAS will get 19 new Boeing airplanes this year. They are quiting the head of information in Norway Knut Morten Johansen.

Earlier I have read that SAS will be getting 3 737NG airplanes 2 737-800 and 1 737-700. Does anyone know anything about this? Have SAS converted some of their options to firm orders this year? What kind of models are we talking about? I believe that this will be a mix of -700 and -800. SAS has not signaled that they will expand this year, so I guess they will replace either some classic 737 or MD-80 airplanes. Or could Johansen been misquoted? I know they are getting some Q400 for wideroe, some 737 and some CRJ900.

Boeing shows only four unfilled 737NG orders, so unless they are planning to place an order for immediate delivery at Paris next month...  Silly

There are planes available for almost immediate delivery at both manufacturers. Lessors also have a few so it's not impossible.

Current outstanding deliveries

Con No 34546 B737-883 WIN. SE-SOU
34547 B737-883 WIN. SE-SOX
34548 B737-783 WIN. SE-SOY

Plus returned from lease to Air Europa
30467 B737-883 SE-DTN ex Air Europa EC-IXO
30468 B737-883 SE-DTP ex Air Europa EC-IXE

EC-IYI and EC-IVV may also be returning soon

These two ex Globespan 737-663 have also returned in recent times

28304 B737-683 SE-DNX ex Fly Globespan G-CDRA
28305 B737-683 SE-DOR ex Fly Globespan G-CDRB

I think these are the NINE extra B737s referred to in SAS AGM minutes

Remember however that the Braathens B735 and B734 aircraft are already leaving LN-BRR and LN-BRS and i think one of the LN-BU series are parked now.
So number on hulls operating may remain much the same (may even reduce slightly!)

Thank you Stitch  Smile I wish Boeing had a list of remaining options as well. Here are a link to the article. http://e24.no/medier-og-reklame/reklame/article3081252.ece

Either the head of press said something he should not have said (yet) or the journalist made a mistake. Unfortunately I tend to believe the journalist jumped the conclusion.

So there might be a slim chance they will at some point replace the classics with NG airplanes this year? According to the article it says 19 new from Boeing factory.

I am not sure how many 737NG's has been delivered to SAS (excluding the Ex BU NG's) Before the acquisition of Braathens, SAS had 55 firm orders and 40 options. They are far from 95 deliveries from Boeing, so they could probably convert the option and get them quickly.

SAS is not getting 19 aircraft form Boeing. They don't even have that many on order from them. However, add up the 3 737 from Boeing with the CRJ-900s and Q-400 they are receiving from Bombardier this year, the number should be about 19

That is what I am thinking. I guess the journalist are bluffing, and quoting the head of PR incorrectly. It would be cool though  Smile

Probably not related at all, but does any one know who those 13 737NG airplanes are for that are listed as an unidentified customer at Boeing's web page?

Hi Danielb. Welcome to Airliners.net  Smile I hope you enjoy the stay!

SAS group had so much bad press from the Q400 accidents that they had to takeaction and get rid of them. But Wideroe was not happy with this decision as they were happy with their Q400. So they got an agreement that they could take the Q400NG under the Wideroe brand, but SAS did not want to risk taking new deliveries. The staff was also not happy with the Q400. SAS blamed BBD for the accidents, and the settelments was that they ordered CRJ900NG as a replacement airplane and q400Ng at a very nice deal!

According to sasflightops, these three will come with Norwegian registration. C/n 34546 is already flying using a Norwegian hex-code and Boeing 'dealer-tag', but as the aircraft still isn't painted, the registration isn't applied yet.

SASflightops also reports a second 737-700 being delivered in january 2010.
