How Is SAS Doing?

Sun Sep 23, 2001 12:52 am

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  Crying
And can anybody give me the URL for SAS Flight operations?
Thank you in advance!

First, you can have a look at either http://www.scandinavian.net or http://www.sasflightops.com.
SAS have announced that they will cut some frequencies, one EWR, one ORD and SEA may be in danger. But as far as I know, nothing i decided yet.

I believe they had already announced that they were ending SEA earlier. Instead they were going to start service to SFO (with A340), but in the new climate who knows if and when that will happen.

As far as I have read, these routes are most likely gone for now:
CPH-SEA
CPH-EWR (one of the 2x daily either gone or reduced)
ARN-ORD

All this is pure speculation. SAS have made NO formal announcements about cuts. The speculations all seem to follow the same threads though ...

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.

No,Denver is not being studied as a destination in the short term.

Toronto was operated for a short period in the early 90's,but yield was poor and the route terminated.No plans yet for re-instatement.

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.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy 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.

SAS has made no announcement yet as to cut any routes anywhere. Although there is a lot of talk about cuts on american routes, whether they are rumours or not I do not know.

The Asian routes are still doing exceptionally well. I tried to book a SIN-CPH flight with SAS during November and there were no seats available at all.

So for now it seems I have to go with BA unless being on the waiting list for the SAS flight pays off.

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..

Have a nice day.
