SK....DEN-ARN....would It Work?

Fri Jan 20, 2006 1:15 pm

Beings that SK is a star alliance partner...do any of you think maybe putting an A330 in DEN would work for SK?

I'm pretty sure the A330 has the range for the flight....if it does really good you can always upgrade it to the A340. Any ideas?

DEN to ARN/CPH....which ever....I am not sure which one is SK's main hub!

SK already flies to two Star Alliance/United hubs in the USA: Chicago and Washington-Dulles. SK also flies to Seattle. Plus Star Alliance member Lufthansa flies to Denver. What's the need or market for a flight to Denver from Scandinavia. Likely, not enough to fill a daily flight with higher yielding passengers and cargo.

I doubt Denver is high on the list. If SK expands in the US, I'd bet on MIA or maybe Minneapolis.
Heia Norge!

No, it would not work. No way. SAS has long-haul profit problems as is, and if they do expand to the United States, it would be SFO, BOS, or MIA. Not DEN.

Doesn't make a difference. SAS' A330s and A340s have the same exact seat configuration.

SFO with all the IT-companies must be better than DEN.

Since SK has so few available planes I'd say SIN - not additional North American destinations.

Didn't SAS just install flat beds in their A340s and took away a few seats business, but the A330 has the same configurations as before.

And I don't think DEN would be an option, but SFO or MXP might be future destinations for SAS.

SAS will have the angled flat beds installed in their A340 as of April (or was it the A330's). The rest of the fleet will, on the other hand, not be done until the end of this year. Again, not sure which one, but there will be less C seats, and one aircraft will have less C-seats than the other depending on the route they fly. I think the North-Amercian flights will have more.

I think San Francisco will be the next US SAS destination.

I guess Minneapolis could work too as it is a major Scandinavian/American area in the US like Seattle is.
