Probably all blown up by the swedish tabloids

Aftonbladet (swedish newspaper) is reporting that an SK A340 had to return to CPH after a cabin pressire loss 45 minutes into the flight.

Danish newsmedia (mostly the tabloids) have blown it out of proportion also.

Here's a link to an article from Ekstra Bladet (in Danish) with a picture from a passenger who caught the fuel dumping on camera.

SAS paid hotel expenses for 125 of the 239 pax and reboooked everyone but 2, who chose to postpone their trip.

The incident would cost SAS around 1 million DKR ~ 180.000 USD.
Future flights: CPH-BOS; CPH-SVG; CPH-PVG-HKG-MNL-DVO; CPH-CDG; CPH-NRT; CPH-MIA; CPH-PVG
