making a bid for the Scandinavian airline SAS.
"The chief executive Rickard Gustafson has really done an impressive job. SAS has made

I don't know about the numbers, but I think one also has to consider infrastructure. CPH is easy and relatively inexpensive to get to not least because it's part of the local commuter network. Is this the same for ARN?
