This had always been the plan, to operate CPH-BKK as a seasonal route during part of the Winter. In March, the route will cease agoin, and capacity used to the US

But nothing is definite in the airline business. People had thought that with the heightened competition from Norwegian and from the Gulf carriers who are moving into Scandinavia, that SK would have second thoughts.

SK only deploys its A330s on it's North America routes, right? I assume we'll see an A343 on this route.

No, CPH-IAD and CPH-ORD is usually 340, same with the 3x weekly evening flight CPH-EWR. Although A330 is sometimes used here as well, although their A330s usually operates OSL-EWR, CPH-EWR (daily mid-day flight), ARN-ORD and ARN-EWR

Perhaps I was being unclear; I meant that SK only sends its A330s on North American routes, rather than its Asian routes.

So after San Fransisco yet another longhaul destination for SAS. Where do they get this capacity? Any plans for 1 or more 'new' A330/A340s before moving towards the 787/350?

Mainly EWR. The 3x weekly evening flight CPH-EWR is not operated in the winter, in addition the US sees some general reduction (as always) during winter.

What CO764 likely mean is that while the A340 operates to both Asia and North America, the A330 only flies to North America.

Wow, what market are they after? I can't imagine there's much business between Yorkshire or Denmark, or much VFR or tourism...

Back in the late 70s (can't remember when exactly), I flew with SK from SEA to BKK via CPH. At that time on the CPH to BKK flight, SK used a DC8 of some sort. What was most interesting to me were the en-route stops between CPH and BKK. On the outbound flight we stopped in TAS (Tashkent) and on the return in THR (Teheran). It was the only time I've ever been in either city.

When we landed in Tashkent, in the middle of the night, we were told we all needed to disembark and wait in the terminal. At the door of the plane were Soviet officials collecting every passenger's passport, which they only returned when we reboarded. As this was during the height of the Cold War, I found giving up my passport unnerving, but nothing went wrong. We sat in the terminal for an hour or so, reboarded and carried on to BKK. Needless to say, no one stayed behind in Tashkent, nor were there any boarding passengers.

The Humber's plans to develop itself as a base for the renewable energy sector has been mentioned, but there could also be business traffic related to other sectors. Don't forget this isn't just about Denmark as there will be onward connections to Norway, Sweden, Finland, Lithuania and Poland as well

Also, it's not a huge amount of capacity, a 50? seater five times a week

The CPH-BKK-SIN route via TAS that began in 1967 was called the "Trans-Asian Express". I believe SAS was the first western European carrier permitted to operate between Europe and Asia via the then-Soviet Union.
