Re: First SAS 737 in new livery

Fri Mar 13, 2020 3:12 pm

Looks like the window frames are still polished metal. The first Air Canada MAXs had metal frames which were later painted black to match the rest of the raccoon mask. I wonder if SAS will do the same?

Denmark will close it's borders Tomorrow (March 14th) at 12-noon local time, for anyone without a Danish passport (except foreigners who studies/works/lives in Denmark), until April 13th. Danes are also requested to stay in Denmark unless having important duties abroad. Expect many cancellations on flights

Not really true. Norwegian nationals will still be able to cross the border. Planes are still allowed to depart/arrive from other countries. And domestic flights are still operating. The measures are similar to what Denmark has done as well.
There is a short term surge right now, as Norway and Danish governments has asked their citizens to return home.

Iceland remains one of very few countries in Europe to not have put in place any sort of formal travel restrictions. Residents in Iceland are required to go into home-quarantine when returning from most impacted areas but tourists have been free to come as they please. We will presumably be a part of a Schengen-wide entry ban on non-EU/EEA nationals from today, even if the Icelandic authorities don't like it.

Every day sees a reduction in service at KEF as more countries implement restrictions and demand disappears. I think there is a surprising amount of flying still happening though. The morning FI flight to CPH did depart despite travel restrictions in Denmark, perhaps mostly to get Icelanders home. 4 out of 8 scheduled US bound flights in the afternoon are still on. Tonight there are three scheduled rescue flights on FI 757s from the Canary Islands, bringing people back home.

Swedish government takes most cost for sending people home on temporarly basis because of service stopped or sickleave.

Sure, I'll translate the qoute from the financeminister:

SAS har stor betydning for både Skandinaviens og Danmarks tilgængelighed. Det vedrører i høj grad også arbejdspladser, virksomheder og hele økonomien generelt. Det er baggrunden for, at den danske og den svenske stat som de to største ejere i fællesskab har besluttet at støtte op om SAS ved i første omgang at stille garantier for i alt 3 mia. SEK. Der er tale om et første skridt, og den danske stat vil som en langsigtet og ansvarlig medejer af SAS følge udviklingen tæt og gøre, hvad end der er nødvendigt for, at SAS kommer igennem krisen og fortsat vil være operationel herefter.


SAS is of great importance for both Scandinavian and Danish connectivity. It is to a high degree also about jobs, companies and the economy as a whole. This is the reason for the Swedish and Danish state, as the two largest owners, has decided that we will combined support SAS, as a first measure, will be providing guarantees for 3 billion SEK. This is a first measure, and the Danish state will, as a long term and responsible owner of SAS follow the development closely, and do whatever is required, to secure that SAS will survive this crisis and be operational after.

THAI will operate to CPH and ARN with A350-900 in S20 (with reduced number of weekly frequencies):


Bangkok – Copenhagen
eff 01APR20 A350-900XWB replaces 777-300ER

Bangkok – Oslo
01APR20 – 30APR20 5 weekly closed for reservation
06MAY20 – 10JUN20 3 of 4-5 weekly open for reservation, 777-300ER operating

Bangkok – Stockholm Arlanda
eff 01APR20 A350-900XWB replaces 777-300ER, 1 daily (4 weekly 11MAY20 – 31MAY20, 5 weekly 01JUN20 – 29JUN20)
eff 02JUL20 4 of 7 weekly open for reservation


This means the capacity will slightly decline as A359 has 321 seats while B77W has 348.

Thank you. What I find interesting is the part that the Danes will do whatever it takes to keep SK alive. Why is the Danish state singled out as a long term and responsible owner of SAS? What about the Swedes? If I remember correctly Norwegians are trying to get out of SK, right?

Though with DY struggling and about to collapse, I wonder if they might reconsider and change their attitude towards SAS.

I think the Swedish and Danish state is aligned in the ambition to keep SK alive till after the crisis. The "mood" in both Danish and Swedish commentators/newspapers etc. is that SAS should not be punished and SAS is vital too keep critical infrastructure in the countries.

The norwegian state has already sold it's stake in SK.

That's very interesting, thank you. Seems like Denmark would stand to lose the most here as CPH has become a relevant international player thanks to SK. Nice to see both Nordic countries standing by SK.

By the way, what was the official reason for Norway selling their stake in SK?

Last Friday Finnair had a similar flight (A359) from MIA. They have also started cargo flights to ICN, with A359.

I was actually wondering about all these repatriation flights what people pay for this, so this is interesting.

Iceland is now down to 1 or 2 flights per day as the only link to the outside world. The government of Iceland has decided to support Icelandair to keep up at least one Europe flight (LHR or ARN) and one US flight (BOS) throughout this situation.

Also wonder why they used Sunclass from the Philippines as they have to make a stop in Phuket both way, couldn't the A350 have done it nonstop

Difficult with crew at MNL, as they are also not allowed to enter the Philippines. Sunclass Airlines probably could probably do it cheaper than SK...

Philippine Airlines operates London - Manilla nonstop on the Airbus A350, so SAS surely must be able to do the same from Scandinavia. Maybe they wanted to pick up passengers from Thailand as well?

P.S. I don't know what Sunclass is and what SAS have or have not been doing in the Philippines and/or Thailand.

But nether Sun Class or SAS would have crew in MNL to operate the aircraft back to Scandinavia? Phuket is a destination that SunClass ordinarily flies to, so they have ground handling, catering, maintenance and IRRPOS arrangements they might even have crew there already to operate something like HKT-MNL-HKT.

SunClass is the new name for Thomas Cook Scandanavia.

Sunclass doesn't have crewbases outside Scandinavia. So they had extra crew on the flight.

Also for Peru SK or DK doesn't have any flights normally

Just learnt Finnair's A359 rescue flight AY028 HAV-HEL, departing 0045 on coming Tuesday, is a Nordic + Estonian project.

A price example: HAV-HEL-ARN 816e in Y class, 2136e in J.

Anybody know if this is a first for SAS at Lima? Did they fly to Peru in the 60’s?

It is indeed a first for SAS. They only served LIM through a cooperation with Varig, a change of aircraft in either Rio or Sao Paolo was required. SAS have only served Brazil, Uruguay, Chile and Argentina in South America

Thanks for the confirmation. Yes the old SK957 to Santiago is the closest SAS has ever been.

You're welcome. Those were the times back then. It's the first time an SAS aircraft will operate to South America in nearly 30 years

Being about 2000 km longer than CPHLAX, is this the longest passenger flight SAS has ever done? Can’t think of any flight this long before...

To my knowledge it will be the longest ever non-stop stop flight operated by SAS.
I've made a top 5 measured based on great circle routes:

CPH-LIM (11.086 km)
CPH-GRU (10.384 km)
CPH-GIG (10.165 km)
CPH-SIN (9.967 km)
CPH-LAX (9.050 km)

CPH-JNB would be nr. 5 if it has ever been non-stop, but I believe that there was at least one stop (in NBO) until it was closed

Another SAS 737-700 returned to lessor, as SE-RJS has been returned to GECAS. 14 year old aircraft, but has only been with SAS for 6 years

Boeing 737 -76N 32684 1889 SE-RJS SAS ferried 02apr20 RZE-SNN, for Yakutia Airlines ex TC-SAC


That should leave 21 -700 left at SAS, although a number is stored
