Apparently a Norwgian flight between CPH and OSL was forced to land at Landvetter (GOT)
after one of the passengers claimed that there was a bomb among the checked-in baggage
on-board the aircraft, The plane landed safely at GOT at 16.30 local time and the plane
has been isolated at the end of the runway.

However flights from/to GOT were resumed about 2 hours ago,

The male passenger who made the threat have been arrested.
All baggage will be re-checked and there will be a press conference at 20.00 local time (5 min from now)

It took a while to have the passenger properly identified. He is a Russian madman. He also hijacked a Russian plane to Stockholm back in 1993.

If you have hijacked a plane,then you should never be allowed to board a plane again in your lifetime...

that they (twitter staff I assume) would forward the question and then get back to me.

For all you slackers in Norway. Passport control at OSL will start checking your name against the NAV list of people receiving unemployment, AAP, etc. and apparently not let you leave the country without permission from NAV. So you have to have your holiday in Norway.

They do spot checks in CPH as well. If you receive unemployment benefits you have to be available to start work if necessary., which is hard to be laying on a Beach for 2 weeks in Spain.

Some hickups for Norwegian's 787s today so ARN-FLL was operated by EuroAtlantic 767-300ER and OSL-JFK with Pullmantur 747-400. The latter is having a six hours delay with planned departure from OSL at midnight

This comes in the addition to issues with late deliveries from Boeing after the wing issues resulting in several of the routes from CPH being operated with a 777-200ER from EuroAtlantic for the next few weeks

DY7087 (ARN-LAX) was delayed from yesterday 16:40 till today. It took off at 20:30. About 28 hours delayed.

DY7036 (FLL-ARN) scheduled to depart 30 April at 21:30, took off today, 1 May at 15:20. Instead of arriving today at 13:00 it will arrive tomorrow morning at 6:30. About 17 hours and 30 minutes delayed.


Today's CPH-LAX is operated by a EuroAtlantic 777-200ER.

That's not bad considering Norway only has just over half the population of Sweden. Norwegians also buy more C-seats than the Swedes and Danes.

If I understood this article right (google translated it), SK have announced that they no longer will
charge any fees if you want to check in luggage like bicycles, golf bags or skies, as long
as the luggage does not exceed the maximum allowed weight which is 23K.

Regular luggage will continue to be free of charge while other airliners like KLM / AF charges
small fees for passengers in economy class on intra Europeans flights.

The way Norwegian are treating there staff is pretty shamefull if the text management sent out to all crew is correct.

Quote:
In it, Norwegian’s management claimed that all Norwegian Air cabin crew bases would be dissolved with the exception of the one at Oslo’s main airport at Gardermoen. Cabin crews based in Copenhagen would also be “outsourced,” as the flight attendants themselves have feared, to the employment agency Proffice. Finally, Norwegian’s management warned that all employee discounts on airline tickets would be halted for three years.

I'm shocked that the govt hasn't come down on them like a ton of bricks. They (Norwegian) just don't care.

Quote:
Anne-Sissel Skånvik, communications director for Norwegian Air, refused to apologize for the unusual text message sent to the mobile phones of all Norwegian employees that upset many of them. “It was completely necessary,” Skånvik insisted to NRK, contending that the measures spelled out in it reflected a decision made by Norwegian’s board of directors.
“It would have been unheard of if we had not informed the employees of a board decision,” Skånvik said. “We had to release this information.”

New winter routes announced by SAS today

OSL-HAM 4x weekly (1457) 26/10-
GOT-GVA 1x weekly 31/1-21/3
CPH-LPA 1x weekly 1/11-28/3
AAL-AGP 1x weekly 20/12-3/1 og 1/2-28/3
BLL-AGP 1x weekly 20/12-3/1 og 1/2-28/3
BGO-LPA 1x weekly 1/11-3/1 og 21/2-28/3
OSL-VNO - 6 return flights around Christmas

Except for OSL-HAM which is a regular full year route, all these seasonal 1x weekly routes will be operated on Saturday, so it is mainly a way for SAS to utilize aircraft that anyway would have been parked during Saturdays in the low season

SAS is changing aircraft and operator on the 2x daily BLL-OSL rotations from end of October. Instead of 2x daily Cimber ATR-72-200, will the morning rotation be flown by JetTime and their ATR-72-600 (or 500?) while the afternoon rotation will be on SAS metall and their CRJ-900. At the same time SAS is increasing CPH-BLL from 5x to 6x daily, by sending their CRJ-900 with this routing:

CPH-BLL - SK4445 14:10 - 15:00
BLL-OSL - SK1902 15:55 - 17:00
OSL-BLL - SK1903 17:30 - 18:35
BLL-CPH - SK1288 19:10 - 20:00

When was the last time SAS used their own metall on CPH-BLL?

CPH-JFK: 4x weekly

Not really sure what you mean, but trying to answer:
- SAS new product is obviously superior to AY's 2-2-1 + 1-2-1 in Business which is still OK because of being lie flat, but lacking direct aisle access.
- The new product should be the one chosen for SK's A359 but with 1-2-1 in Business, 2-4-2 in SAS Plus and 3-3-3 in SAS Go.
- One simple answer why SAS chose A333 is availability, for early A343 retirement, plus it suits them in terms of capacity. SAS can use them on several destinations where A359 is simply to much of an airplane and the new A333 can do the job better then A343.

What does the new 1-2-1 do for number of seats in Business, compared to todays config?


Seatcount will be:

330-300: 32/56/178
340-300: 40/28/180

SAS 1-2-1 configuration is slightly staggered so then dont loose that many seats

Without toilet apparently ...

So these premium passengers will be forced to go down and join the cue for those tiny bathrooms! That's not very premium, the bathrooms around that area of the terminal are absolutely horrible.

SAS new product is obviously superior to AY's 2-2-1 + 1-2-1 in Business which is still OK because of being lie flat, but lacking direct aisle access.

This is true. I wonder if AY will introduce new seats for their a359, which should be coming next year   
Does the a359 really have a 3+3+3 Y congiguration? As spacious as a 777 in the same configuration?

A359 cabin width is actually in between of the B787 and B777 which makes it a true 9-seat config with small chance of operators configure them into 10-seat (aside from JAL for their domestic ops and other charter airliners)

Makes me wonder if EK will put a 10 abreast configuration on their a350s aswell.

Does anyone know about snowbird airlines, which is due to start soon from HEL? I would imagine they have 2 aribuses to start with and maybe expand rapidly?
