Hi,

Ok I will get striaght to the point,

- What can I expect the aircraft type to be in July from London Heathrow to Oslo? - this is all with SAS.

- On my return flight from Bergen I have to go via Oslo - can I expect to change aircraft here or just sit tight and wait? Again what can I expect the aircraft type to be?

- Can anyone tell me who whave flown SAS in the past what they are like? Entertainment etc?




Also, on a compleatly different subject I was wondering, for example at Heathrow, how many landing/take-offs are aborted each day, how many 'incidents' are there? - I am always reading about the odd one but I wondered if anyone had any facts or figures or opinions they could share with me?




Many thanks,

Airliners

The aircraft type on the LHR-OSL route will be a MD-82 or a MD-90.

There will be a connection at OSL on your way home.
The aircraft type between BGO and OSL is almost everything from Dash-8 to B737-700.
Again, your last leg, OSL-LHR will be a MD-82 or a MD-90.

There will be no PTV's or such but service is very good.

At last, Hope you will have a great trip!


Regards, Simon Larsson

The A321 and B737 are also used on OSL-LHR ,,,

Depending on the flight number,the LHR-OSL flight will be on an MD-90 or MD-81/82.The 737 operates LHR flights only as replacements for the MD's in case of unscheduled maintenance,etc.The chance of seeing the A321 on LHR-OSL v.v. route is small,as it will operate LHR only during weekends from CPH and possibly ARN.

The BGO-OSL flight will most likely be an MD-82 or 737-700 or -800.The Dash-8 Q-400 does not operate any scheduled flights between BGO and OSL.

Why they are not operating the MD-90's into ZRH?
I think this would be economical because they have nearly the same pax number then the MD-81's which are operated into Zurich, but they would have to pay less landing fees, because ZRH honors quiet aircraft.

Perhaps the difference in landing fee is bigger on some other airport between MD-81's and MD-90, which would make it more profitable to fligh them there?

Just like birdwatching - without having to be so damned quiet!

There are only 8 MD-90's in the SAS fleet and they are all committed to the OSL-ARN-CPH triangle and flights between CPH,OSL,ARN and GOT to LHR.Occasionally,it may find it's way to HEL,too.
The pax load on the ZRH flights barely justify an MD-81 or -82,so a 737-600 or -700 will be a more likely choice.
For the time being,SAS uses Swissair (Ex-Swissair,Crossair?) technical services in ZRH and as they have a lot of experience with the DC-9/MD-80's,it makes more sense to use the MD-80's for the time being.
