Yep still CPH-BKK-SIN.
Well looks like SAS still have to compete with SQ B772 to CPH!Can't they just both codeshare the flight?I really think that's a good idea just like LH to Munich, Air NZ to Christchurch....probably SK has a stop in BKK, probably aiming at the Bangkok market!
Maybe both SKand SQ have quite good load factors on their own routes!

The SAS route to BKK and SIN is a daily flight, SQ only operates a few times a week and so is Thai doing.
It seems as there is a market for all three here,but TG and SK do have codeshare on their flights to BKK.

Thai flies five times a week to CPH and it will probably be increased to six times a week sooner or later, that's what I have heard.
SIA flew three times a week (Thursday, Saturday and Sunday) to CPH with the A340 but since the 777 was introduced I have only seen SIA flying two times weekly, on Thursdays and Saturdays.
What about the Sunday-service, somebody knows?

I will be flying to Bergen, Norway sometime in the end of April or first part of May from Seattle. SAS been using the 763 for years. If I book the last part of April and come home in May I will be on a 763 going and an A340 coming home. If I book the first part of May it is all A340 at that point. So sometime in the end of April SAS will switch to A340 service on the SEA-CPH route. Since I have never flown on a 767 before I want to try and book on the 767. Maybe even the last SAS 767 flight on this route for SAS if I am lucky.

>> Go for the A340! <<
It will probably be that way anyway. I can only be gone for about 12 days but must be there for May 17th. Norways Independence!!!
Plus I have never been on a A340 and will probably be my only chance.
Off subject but thought I would bring it up. If I book today I can get round trip for $1137 USD. Problem is I would like to wait about 90 days in advance before booking. One reason is like most Americans I am a little concerned about my job future. Number two the airfare seems a little high and might go down. They are expecting tourism to Europe to go way down so air fares might go down. Then again they might go way up after the first of the year like last year. Last year SAS kicked in full summer fares after December. I have never booked a European flight before and welcome some tips on how to get the best airfare.

SQ now flies from CPH Monday, Thursday and Saturday. Btw it looks like SQ will operate to extra flights to CPH in the second week of January. One flight with 777-200 (ER) and one flight with A340. The A340 will operate on the 11th January.
Thai operates six times a week from now and until the summer timetable. There is a possibility that they will continue with 6 flights a week during the summer period but it depends on the bookings.

According to SASFO, the 767's are flown to Shannon for a neutral paint, and from there they're either taken back into service (until their replacements arrive). The previous shown pictures were SK944 from ORD, and it was heading for the SAS hangars (presumably, it's kinda difficult to tell on the webcam).
Their last flight will be to Victorville, CA. http://www.sasflightops.com/gallery/Boeing767/old_livery/RCI1.jpg - the first B767 to be phased out. The photo was taken at Shannon.

The final SAS B767-300ER flight to BKK and SIN actually departed CPH on 8 December 2001 and arrived in both Asian cities on 9 December 2001.
The inaugural A340-300 flight departed CPH on 9 December 2001, and arrived in BKK and SIN on 10 December 2001. It then turned around and departed SIN for BKK and CPH on 10 December 2001.
I had the opportunity to fly BKK-SIN on 7 Dec and flew on LN-RCM but returned to BKK on the inaugural A340-300 flight out of SIN. Beyond the ceremonial send-off at Singapore Changi Airport, it was a smooth ride to BKK.
The seats in Business Class are very well designed and others airlines should take note of its superb ergonomic features and deep blue leather finish. The faulty on-screen safety demonstration does take a little shine off the well-polished inaugural flight.
This must be the world's first A340 with windows in the toilets.
Looking forward to my next flight on SAS' A340 on 22Dec!
