SAS has been flying to LAX a few years now, but noticed the flight is not daily this summer. I believe last summer it was served daily. LAX is the remaining route out of ARN besides the bog standard EWR/ORD, so maybe a candidate to be moved to CPH as HKG has been? Anyway, a couple of days ago I flew back home to LAX with SAS in business. It is the second time I have flown LAX-ARN-LAX in business, and I love their product. SAS has got it right this time, and their J class is one of the better ones when flying TATL.
Finnair launched HEL-LAX as 3x weekly year round, while SFO still is seasonal. They must have much more confidence in LAX working out for them. Have been trying to get 2 award seats in J, but seems impossible as all flights with availability only have 1 seat released for miles.
As far as I know, Finnair's SFO and LAX services do both very well. Not sure about ARN-LAX but I do consider the move of the route to CPH possible.
