Continued from above
After having spent almost three hours at Kastrup we went to the gate. When we arrived the screens showed delayed because of technical problems. Apparently a service vehicle had ran into the plane!
An hour passed without any information. I noticed that the aircraft's pilots were outside the plane and took photos on the damage. We found out later that there was not a suitable technician at Kastrup so they have too send pictures of the damage to a technician in Vienna.
The technician in Vienna could not at first decide if we were allowed to fly or not but after some time he given the pilot the permission to fly back to Vienna. Most of the passenger was travelling further from Vienna so some went hysterical. The gate agent sad that she couldn´t do anything since she represented SAS, so if someone missed their connections the should contact Austrin in Vienna.
Some passengers did not wait at the gate so they walked away. So when the boarding started their were people missing!
Finally, after some 15-20 minutes the missing people showed up. After being delayed a second time everyone was on board and we could get on our way to Vienna two hours late.

Their were four F/A´s onboard this flight. Two male and two female. All very friendly. Service consisted of a sandwich with cold and hot drinks. All for free here on Austrian. Nice!

When we had pick up our luggage and come into the arrival hall maybe 50-60 of our co-travellers ran into Austrians service center. It was really fun, I could see panic in the Austrian staff
In Vienna we stayed at the Mariott in central Vienna, it was FABULOUS!
