RE: A319s For SAS

"The SAS A333 SE-REF in Star Alliance livery..why is the nose light brown instead of the normal SAS white? Any ideas?"

Because the regular SAS color is not white - it is light grey/creme/brown-ish. That nose cone has the regular SAS color.

Yes, the MD-80 is pretty load back there, I have experienced this many times.

it seems like most carriers will configure their A380 to carry 555-500 passengers, in three classes. I'm guessing that an equivalent 747-400 density would be 420-380 passenegers. Now that is not high-density by any means. One can squeeze in 550+ in a 747-400, and ~800 in an A380 in all economy confi...
