It is my impression SAS is using these on short "bread and butter" routes such as ARN-OSL, OSL-BGO etc. Flights ~1 hr or less. I think winglets would not help so much on such short routes. Considering the age of these frames, I suppose it is better to "cycle them out" on short r...Jump to post
Hi all. Reading the new AS thread about their non-ER 739s and how they're non-winglet equipped and those that came factory-delivered still with eyebrow windows, got me wondering how many 737-NGs are still out there either: a) Without winglets? and/or b) With eyebrow windows? Heck even a lot of 732 ...Jump to post

SAS has to be a good chance with 737-6/700's and A319's to replace, the NEO already chosen on the high end and plenty of BBD experience (good and bad...)

Mixed gauge is ruled out as there is only a 3.5" difference between Russia's 5' gauge and everyone else's 4' 8.5" gauge as the space between the two rails would be too small: barely an inch once the width of the rail-head is taken into consideration.

If seasonal routes are included: Stockholm (ARN/BMA)-Visby (VBY) is during the summer served by SAS, Norwegian, Nextjet and BRA.
Although Visby and Gotland is very popular in the summer. The ATR72s SAS normally uses on the route are replaced by 737-800s in the summer.

Seems like SAS has recieved their 4th A320neo.
I'm sure they're considering both. But I'm hoping it will be the A320. Much larger and wider cockpit, lower noise levels, tray tables.. simply a much better working enviroment than the 60 year old 737 cockpit. Like Someone83 says, the A320neo will be the new type for Denmark and Sweden. Hopefully N...Jump to post

Air Baltic: "SAS would benefit from buying us"

Seems like Air Baltic is for sale and the Latvian Government, who owns 80% of the company, is looking for another airline to take over Air Baltic.
This was discussed earlier this year, viewtopic.php?f=3&t=604359&p=9605037
My guess is that BA is not interested in dealing with the Zanu-PF regime or, as another poster mentioned, risk having an aircraft seized by the government as "repayment for colonial crimes".
Could Norwegian fly LAX-PPT with the permits they have today ? French Polynesia (also New Caledonia) is not a part of the European Union and is not included in the Openskies treaty with the US.

Obviously, some of you can probably see where this is going- what if YVR became the first airport to have split nat'l ops? The idea here would be that YVR could split a section of the airport for solely domestic connections, no O/D traffic and no cross US/Canada traffic to avoid immigration issues ...Jump to post
As many others have pointed out, it's common in Europe. On smaller airports without jetways, there are stairs at both the front and aft.

Why is it that OSL has become a B737 base. Is there a special reason why the A320 is not used more there ? I have no idea why SAS has chosen to turn ARN into an A320 base instead of OSL, but it's probably easier to have either A320-series or 737 at the bases instead of mixing them. And maybe the 73...Jump to post

Sounds a bit like Widerøe and the small domestic Norwegian routes, http://www.wideroe.no/en . They have many short routes, like SKN-SVJ (40 km as the crow flies) and apart from ordinary tickets also sell tickets valid for unlimited travel for a fortnight.Jump to post
