would be wise. SK
can't compete on cost with the charter airlines and should focus on business destinations, like Shanghai.
Am I the only one who like SAS? I fly to China a lot and prefer them over Air China. Sure, you get unlimited beer and wine on Air China, disgusting Chinese brands that taste like ****, but NO liquor...
And I always get some extra for free if I ask nicely on SAS.
And when I have had the luck to fly business class on SAS I have been impressed. Sure, the hardware is not the best but the service is nice and personal. And I always arrive hungover because of all the nice drinks.
SAS new policy that you always get bonus 100% points when flying SAS metal, even on discount tickes, means I now get huge amount of points when flying SAS longhaul a lot. One trip is often enough for an upgrade to economy extra.
It also feels like they are improving the Europe service now. When I flew domestic in Denmark a few days ago there where free juice, coffee and other stuff at boarding, too short flight to serve anything.
And yeah, I love the MD
-80. I always sit in the back and listen to the wonderful engine noise.
