RE: SK To End Intercontinental Flights In 10 Years?

Not intending to side with Jørgen Lindegaard in any way, but I think he's up against almost insurmountable forces. Forget about Snowflake experiments, A330/340s, Vagn Sørensen, visions, intercontinental routes etc. The core issue is simply that SAS Group is a very difficult entity to reform. One exa...

I find that the consistency of <acronym title="Singapore Airlines">SQ</acronym> service levels are almost unmatched within the industry, and in terms of quality of service it's still definitely way up there...
