SAS Braathen now has a hundred plus pilots on sick leave. The company this afternoon demands each of them to deliver a confirmation from their doctor, proving that they really are ill, and not part of an unofficial kind of industrial action.

OSL Closed

OSL had to close tonight because of weather conditions. It has been raining, but ground temperatures are below zero, so what you have, in effect, is a skating rink, not a runway.
