Quoting chuchoteur (Reply 6): I believe that SAS have a contract with the Norwegian government to have a couple of aircraft available should they require emergency lift. Maybe they are using one of those?
This is not an emergency lift, and those aircraft that are "reserved" for that are 737-700 AFAIK

Quoting babybus (Reply 4): I'm also surprised SAS could spare an aircraft on the verge of the summer season.
Maybe time SAS looked at their fleet utilization.
I don't think this is a big issue, as the summer season has not started in Scandinavia yet. Also SK has at least one spare AC at OSL at any given time, so SK just put that one into service and then sent LN-RRF to the US for two days.
I'm pretty sure SAS got paid handsomely for this flight.

More than the ordinary Norwegian domestic flights I guess. A number of domestic flights to BGO, SVG and TRD from OSL were cancelled yesterday. If it was due to this TATL flight or had other causes, I don't know.
