Bravo to SAS. Not only are they very efficient....they are very nice.
South African's passengers will be sent off in a very nice way from Washington.

congrats SAS!

That feels good as a Swede to hear that SAS have a good reputation over the world.

If only they could start to make money soon, and I say that booth as a Swede and a share-holder.

Yeah but they contract out to ASIG for their ground ops there.

ASIG is no longer at IAD. You are correct, SAS does contract out the under wing services. But all the passengers are handled by SAS ground staff.

SAS is a total class act here in the USA. SAA passengers will really be treated well. Good Job SAS!!!

Nice to know you like the front people working for SAS. I always try to fly SAS when I am going longhaul from Copenhagen, but flying in Europe I don't care which airline I am using. Never the less I am always treated very well and nice from the SAS staff on the ground, where ever I fly.

ASIG went bye bye at IAD

Swissport took over all its contracts
