RE: Scandinavian Aviation 2012 - Part 3

read that two aircraft have collided at Arlanda airport earlier today, at least one of the aircraft are from Sun Express. Since two Sun Express flights are delayed i would guess that the other aircraft is also from Sun Express. <a href="http://www.aftonbladet.se/nyheter/article15057410.ab" target="_...

six people became ill on a SAS flight between Moscow and Stockholm as a result of food posing.Two of them were brought to hospital. It is believed that the cause to the illness is the food the ill passengers had eaten in a restaurant in Moscow. <a href="http://www.dn.se/sthlm/flera-sjuka-pa-flyg-til...

RE: Scandinavian Aviation 2012 #2

I read an article today that said SAS
intended to sell all of their hangars .

From what i can remember the reason
for this was that it would bring in needed
money to the company.

So is this a good/bad or perhaps
necessary action hy SAS?
