Does anybody know how they are doing? Will they also reduce capacity/fleet? I would really like to know this because my sister lives up in Sweden and works for the airline. She was one of the last to come so if they layoff people she would probably be the first to go
And can anybody give me the URL for SAS Flight operations?
Thank you in advance!

Have been in contact with one of our deputy chief pilots,and there are no firm plans to cut routes or destinations as yet.
Prior to the WTC disaster,Bologna had been named as a possible destination to be terminated.
However,route,destinations and capacity reductions are being studied.
CPH-SEA is one of the best routes for SAS Intercont. and any termination of this one is not likely.

Delta's and American's decision to stop their traffic to Scandinavia also works in SAS' favour.
SAS' CEO has now also announced that there are no plans to cut capacity to the US, and that SFO will open as planned.

>Will SAS start a new flight from Stockholm?
>possibly to Seoul or Toronto?
SAS's new intercontinental flights are all flown from the main hub - CPH.
A new flight from ARN would only be started if there was a very heavily loaded CPH route - like EWR and ORD right now. Unless there is a major travel boost, I don't see an asian destination being added. But ARN-Bejing would be neat for the Olympics. Tokyo or Bangkok may be more realistic, but it all depends on how many want to fly.
Don't count on Toronto either, there was a CPH-Toronto route a while back, but it was removed due to low loads.

CPH-YYZ is served by Air Canada flying 767 equipment, in cooperation with SK, 5 days a week. AC has very nice connections to all parts of north america from YYZ. The reason why the route was suspended was that there was no real alliance, offering more convenient connections from YYZ, then the route was operated by CP aircraft in cooperation with SK..
