A Question About SAS And I Was Also Wondering.....

Thu Jan 24, 2002 4:05 am

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!

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.

717fan:
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?

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.
