SAS is considering establishing a direct ARN - PEK as well as a possible CPH - HKG route. I find this interesting considering SKs constant cuts in long haul traffic. Rumors have it the CPH - HKG route might replace the old CPH - SIN route. I thus wonder if one still has to endure the stopover in BKK which SAS has on its SIN route. Anyway, this is good news for many Norwegians since flying Star Alliance to HK has usually meant LH, and for many Norwegians transferring through FRA is a pain since it means going via OSL or CPH first.
