Chania comes as a bit of a suprise. Twice weekly? A strange choice for a scheduled flight from Norway. Dont most Norweigians travel to Crete on a charter airline/package tour?

Thats my impression too, but in recent years SAS have been flying charter for some Scandinavian tour operators. (something brathens was doing for years.) My guess is that since some SAS Braathens planes are in all economy config, they have found a niche in the growing market for only air tickets to and from leisure destinations, and that they might sell some of the seats on these flights to tour operators. But thats only a guess.

I think your guess is what is going to happen. SAS Braathens is selling some (or most) of the seats to a tour operator and are then able to show it as their route. Interestingly SAS Denmark is now going into the charter market. They will use two planes only to serve the charter market in Denmark, going into competition with Sterling.

May we see the resurection of Scanair? would be nice. Surley SK would be better to operate some flights, like Chania, as purely charter flights with seats available for allocation by tour ops rather than charter flights mixed in with scheduled seats.

How many non-charter passengers will be flying twice weekly from Norway to Chania?

Hi Orion, personnaly I doubt there will me a new kind of Scanair, I think the brand will be SAS. Scanair was sold out of the SAS Group and then became the part of a "fusion" with the old charterflight company Conair, which was a part of the travelagency "Spies". Then everything was sold to My Travel because of mismanagement. The way I see it is that the brand SAS will be sold both as a premium product, some in between and then some kind of basic product. Still in Denmark they are using the name "snowflake" as their discount product, but you can buy the same ticket on SAS, sometimes cheaper, but it is the same product. The funny thing is that when you buy the cheap ticket on SAS in Europe you have to buy everything, including water, but if you are travelling on SAS organized by a charter company you might have some kind of food, coffee and water/soda for free. But as I see it, and I have no problem with it, they are selling too many products under the same brand. I know how to look at my bookingclass, but have the average passenger? At first I thought the company made something totally wrong, but the last economic reports says they have done some wright decisions. Only time will tell, and I am not working in the headquarter of SAS.  Smile
