The delivery of SAS´ first A340-300, SE-REA, has for yet unknow reasons been postponed by 10 days. New expected date of delivery is set to be July 30. The aircraft was to enter service on this date and SAS might face schedule problems due to the delay.

I heard that some or one of SAS's A340s might go to Canada 3000 for flights to DEL!!!

From what I've read earlier at http://www.sasflightops.com thr first A340 would be delivered in June and put in to revenue service 8th of August on CPH-DEL. But I haven't been there for quite some time so it might have changed.

As written in the newest issue of SAS Inside magazine,
the reason of delay is that the seats has not yet been delivered.The company that makes seats failed to deliver them in time.
Maybe they were to hi-tech..lol

Anyway cant wait to see the new A340 in SAS colors.
They say that the new inflight enterntainment on SAS long haul will be even better then the one of Singapore Airlines.
Will be nice to see.

I prefer to be crazy and happy rather than normal and bitter
