Great news and a great pic isn't it? ; )

I am absolutly sure that SAS will continue fly the SEA route, it's one of the more profitable route I guess.

Good to hear, Good to hear!

Now are they going to fly into Australia after that? Or maybe resume their service to Hong Kong?

It's about time they started an SFO service. They have done SEA for years. Here's hoping it's worth keeping up.

That's great news! As an SFO native, I am always excited to hear about new international airlines. The new SAS livery looks great, especially the four red engines on the A343.

I really think Hong Kong is on the cards too. There has been talk about resuming that service, and with Finnair starting flights, SAS can easily compete with them as they have better service, and CPH is a better hub for connections to other parts of Europe.
I really cant see SAS in Australia - there market is too thin and low yield for a business-minded airline like SAS.
Wasnt there a plan for Shanghai? And what about resuming Osaka? Another one to look at would be Seoul.
I would like to see the A340s fly Copenhagen/Singapore non-stop.

What about Houston? A CPH-IAH link would make sense. It would be supported by a large amount of oil traffic, and would be SAS's first gateway in the southern US, allowing for brand new connecting opportunities to Mexico, the Caribbean, and Latin America.

I remember SAS was talking of serving Houston when they were allied with Continental, however I think they could still make this flight work.

What do you think?

Cool, now I wish they'd just mix in an Airbus or two on the SEA route, so we could see our first scheduled Airbus widebody. BTW, SEA used to, and I think still has, one of the highest concentrations of people of Scandinavian decent (outside of Scandinavia) in the world. SEA CPH isn't going anywhere.

Great news. Let's hope expansion does not end there! How about MIA-CPH? Although Premiair does fly MIA-CPH charters, I do think scheduled service could work, and MIA has a strong Star Alliance showing, and provides excelent connections on United to Latin America, Atlanta, and Orlando, Mexicanna to Mexico City and Cancun, Air Canada to Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver, as well as Varig to not only Sao Paulo (which I am pretty sure is served from CPH), but Rio, Manaus, Recife, Belem, and Fortazela. Or if not MIA, then LAX, another strong Star Alliance city.

Sad news. UA is axeing the popular ATL-MIA. Oh well.

It makes me wonder how they'll use their 28 gate STAR terminal? Have you heard anything from any little birdies?

I would like to fly SAS's business class some time.

I think SK flights to SF is a good idea.... Because.. Because....
Ahem.
Seriously, folks, SK should expand in Asia and maybe Latin America.
For most Europeans, access to the good ole US of A is easy, but Asia could do with better connections

The Star Alliance terminal is not only for UA. Lufthasa will use it too, as well as Lauda, Mexicana, Varig, and Air Canada. ALM, which UA codeshares with, will also probably use it. And bmi will also find use for it, as I'm sure they will be in MIA by 2005, along with any other Star Alliance partners, such as SAS, that may decide to fly to MIA. I could easily see UA opening new routes from MIA to JFK, DFW, and BOS by 2005, maybe even LHR and other major Latin American destinations (BOG and LIM). And I am sure they will lease out gate space to whoever wants it, such as LTU or Air France (AF will be flying A380s to MIA and the new UA terminal will be the only one able to truly handle the capacity for boarding the A380). A lot can happen in four years, but the terminal is well under construction, although I have read in some articles form local Miami media that it will be 20 gates, though the scale model of the terminal located at UA's Miami offices shows 28.

Mah456... I know UA won't be the only one. Hence why I caleld it the STAR terminal. =)

But still, that's a lot of gates for even STAR *if* all 28 are built.
