Re: SAS moving LAX route from ARN to CPH

Well, Norwegian decided to "take a break" on offering CPH-LAX this winter. That opens up for more PAX. Last year, SK also moved their Hong Kong flights from ARN to CPH. Sure, the Swedish tax and poor value of the SEK might be considered, IMHO I think that CPH will capture more PAX than ARN.
