SAS Grounds All B737s

Does anyone have more detailed information for why they needed to be grounded? I got the impression that it was about the 737-600, but in the news they said Braathens have the same type of aircraft. (Braathens don't have the 600 version.)

Can anyone help?

SAS's grounding of its 737-600 fleet might have something to with the FAA ordering emergency inspections of all newer Boeing 737s because of a defect in the tail assembly. This move appears to affect only 737NGs.

Given the much publicised rudder problems on the older 737's, the FAA directive is quite amazing. What is it with Boeing and the back end of 737's?

Ahh, I've heared about those problems. It caused two 737s to roll uncontrolably, didn't it?

SAS has not grounded any aircrafts. I don't know where you got that from. They're doing the same as everyone else; checking the aircrafts in between flights or overnight. As far as I can tell, it's not a very time consuming job..

.... and since when were 'the news' credible? LOL
Some journalist probably added 2+1 and got 4 ...
There probably is a deadline for the check, but as long as all planes are checked within that time, no planes will be grounded.

Maybe you're right. What do they know about aviation anyway?  Smile

SAS wouldn't ground there 737 unless the where forced to it. It's a mian part of there fleet and grounding them would be really bad for SAS. Hope that they wont find any problems.

Just flew a SAS B737-600 today....and we were definitely flying....so the information must be wrong I guess.

Braathens aircrafts B737-400/500/700 are all flying today as well. All different models seen at Oslo airport -OSL today with pax embaring and disembarking.

There are absolutely no news in Scandinavia today. Even the weather is quite normal - mostly rain of course. The radio news tonight had to repeate all subjects about three times to fill up the allocated 20 minutes.

Such situations make journalists desparate, and then such faults happen.

Best regards, Preben Norholm
