SAS And Faroe Atlantic Airways: FRA-CPH-SVG

SAS and Faroe Atlantic Airways: FRA-CPH-SVG


Hello, dear readers,

it seems May was a good month for my log.

Some days only after the cruise adventure and the arrival back from the UK:
Aurigny And Flybe: ACI-GCI//SOU-FRA (by FLIEGER67 Jun 20 2009 in Trip Reports)

it was time to check the suitcase again.

Well, I need some more textiles than usual, the direction was northern, very northern.
Let´s go and see how far northern we go!.

The second overnight stay was booked for Stavanger in southwestern Norway. Never been there and this together with an new plane type for my log
and another not that well known airline here in middle Europe. Once more, enough reasons to go.

The first leg was orginally booked STR-CPH on an SK MD series machine.
Not that far prior to my travel date I´ve noticed that this flight was rescheduled for the Cimber CRJ 200.
Done only some days before. What to do now?.
Well, FRA was another possible way, the fare not really cheap, but with the MD on schedule, quickly booked.

Saturday, 30.05.2009
FRA (Frankfurt-Rhein-Main) Sunny, 18 degrees
CPH (Copenhagen-Kastrup) Sunny, 16 degrees
Duration: 1 hour, 15 minutes announced
1 hour, 20 minutes actual

Service SK 640 operated by SAS Scandinavian Airlines
Scheduled: 09.30 // 11.00
Actual: 09.40 // 11.00
Gate: B05 Seat: 24A
Load factor: Near 100%
Fare: 118,43 EUR


With that Saturday morning departure, the start of the whitsun vacation time, I´ve decided to be in FRA as the first overnight stay around these trip.
The balladins Superior Hotel Isabella Frankfurt/Airport is located in Neu-Isenburg, only some 5 kilometers from Tourcare and was bookable for 33.-- EUROS only
B&B. Sounds good, isn´t it?. Well, a pretty oldfashioned high storey building. Looks like from the 60ths, also inside, more appartment style than a real hotel.
The staff was very friendly, but I dont need to go there again!.

My room:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/N0901/N0901001.jpg

Parked the car at Tourcare and shuttled to the airport.
Check-in was done the evening before, we know, not at SK´s website, once again the statement, no online-check-in for flights from Germany.
But there is also Lufthansa´s website and also here, the ticket booked by an independent agency, check-in was quickly done.
Not the last row this time, but on the MD its better to sit some rows upfront. 24A in this case.
Long lines at the bag drop in the LH terminal area, no time to wait at the counters between the long distance train station and the terminal.
Further to security, only some minutes there and once more in FRA´s gate area.
B05 is a spacious place with lots of comfortable seats for bus boardings. Well the weather was really nice, therefore warm welcomed to go by bus around the apron.

Above LH:

And again:

Nice seaters:

The SIA classic:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/N0901/N0901006.jpg

A premiere for me today, a new type for my log and also a more and more rare bird here in Europe.
SE-DIP waited on the sunny apron, a MD87 delivered at 21.10.1991 to SK. Its´namend "Margret Viking".
With only five MD87´s remaining in SK´s fleet much more interesting.
The bus stopped at the planes front door, all the pax queueing and me?. The planes rear stair was down, no question I´am the only one to use that feature, the perfect way to board a plane!.

Nice machine:

Isn´t it:

Once more:

Quatar special livery:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/N0901/N0901014.jpg

Two male, one female FA, all together friendly. The cabin fitted with oldfashioned , wide and comfy fabric seats. The legroom was ok.

Cabin:

And once more:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/N0901/N0901024.jpg

Loadfactor near 100 %, that means it needs some time till all the pax sit in the right seat.
Cockpit crew was from Scandinavia, the captain with a friendly welcome during boarding.

Quantas special livery:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/N0901/N0901015.jpg

Taxi along the cargo city to runway 18, no way, the first time for me from the 4000 meters runway 07R in direction HAJ and further east of HAM.
Flightlevel 26.000 feet according to the nice and detailed infos inflight from the FO.

Traffic:

Nothing for free here on SK, buy on board style.
The FO was once more on the speakers during approach into CPHs 3600 meter runway 04L.
Touched down into a also sunny CPH and parked at a finger gate. The captain was at the door during deboarding, so a good chance for a cockpit pic.
No problem, had a nice chat with the young and real friendly FO. Good job here SK!.

It´s CPH:

The gate for the next flight was not yet announced, so time to walk around and do some pix.

Nobody there, quiet and good for my layover.

One hour prior to departure I´ve done another look on the screen and exactly my place to rest was also my gate!.
The area filled up with pax, also from the gate beneath and my machine arrived pretty ontime and parked at the finger.
Another warm welcomed type approached the gate, OY-RCA, a BAE146-200, delivered at 13.11.1985 to PSA in the US, for USAir at 09.04.1988.
It changed to Europe at 28.08.1997 with Debonair, at 02.02.2000 to Business Air, further at 02.03.2001 to BMI and finally at 13.03.2002 to Atlantic Airways.
Faroe Atlantic Airways operates two machines of that type, leg nr. 6 for me and with some flights on Debonair without regs, it might be new or not, dont know!.

The cockpit crew was Scandinavian, the male captain with a short welcome during boarding and also later a short goodbye.
No comment from the female FO. Departure from the 3300 meters runway 04R in direction Aalborg and further Kristiansand. No flightlevel info.

Also buy on board here, nothing for free.
A calm flight and approach into SVG´s 2556 meter runway 18 started early, a soft touchdown and deboarding at a finger gate beneath a LH/EW BAE.

SVG airport:

My bag made it also to SVG, quickly out in the public to catch the Flybussen into the city center.
The bus stop was directly in front off my hotels door, the Skagen Brygge, a recommendable place to stay in sunny Stavanger.

So, the first two of 21 legs around these trip done.
SK operates interesting aircraft nowadays, especially that MD87, real good. Friendly staff, acceptable fare, well done.
Faroe Atlantic Airways has also a somewhat interesting fleet, also especially that 24 years old BAE 146-200, good fare, friendly staff, ok so far.

Comments welcome,

Hey Markus,
Always wanted to see this airline in a TR. Very nice. Those two water salutes must have been inaugural routes??

Very nice pics and the Oil museum looks interesting.

Looking forward to the next one

Hi Markus,

I am always amazed at how you find all these interesting destinations and out of the mainstream flights around Europe and turning them into trip reports.

21 legs on one trip? We are all curious about the rest and waiting!  Wink
There was a better way to fly it was called Concorde

Hi Markus,

What a surprisingly another great TR!

I envy you on having flown with MD87 at the rear.  Sad

The BAe 146-200 was a nice finishing touch by the way.

Hi Markus,

Just back from a day in DUS, a real good read to start my evening, thanks  Smile

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Looks like from the 60ths, also inside, more appartment style than a real hotel.
The staff was very friendly, but I dont need to go there again!.

- I think you have summed thsi place up!

Great start to your trip and 2 rare planes too, M87 & a 146-200, something still missing from my log, perhaps I need to head to SVG?!

Looking forward to the next installement.

Regards

- Had a great day, no TR for these flights, pretty much the same as the last flights to DUS in 2007, nothing too special, just the usual decent BA service.

Flew G-EUOG (3rd flight on this machine) & G-EUPW (5th flight on this machine!!)

I've LHR>PHX>LAS>PHX>LHR in just over a week with BA & US, will do a TR for this, a bit more interesting than the DUS run.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend, best wishes to you and the family.

Hi Markus,

thanks for the interesting start of your trip to Scandinavia! Didn't know you changed the departure airport for the first leg, but it was worth it for sure. I remember my single flight on a CRJ200 not as the most pleasant one, so the Maddog is simple better, and a -87 even more!

CPH B-gates are nice indeed. Did some spotting there myself some months ago, in the same seats. Indeed, Atlantic Airways always at these gates, also during my visit.
Are they really having too much water in CPH, or are all SK captains retiring by now?!

Stavanger looks a nice place. Typical Scandinavian feelings come with your pictures. Really time to fly up North myself again soon.

btw, the weather in STR is not so good? Here it is by far too much summer to write tripreports  Silly Still have 3 waiting..., but can't find the spirit now to start. Rather sit in the garden with my laptop reading yours LOL!

Regards,
Eric

Very interesting report, thanks for that! I was hoping my Football team gets one Faroer Island team in the UEFA Cup so I could fly them too.

Hi Markus,

Very nice report about sunny Scandinavia. Obviously you were really lucky with the weather.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
The first leg was orginally booked STR-CPH on an SK MD series machine.
Not that far prior to my travel date I´ve noticed that this flight was rescheduled for the Cimber CRJ 200.

I guess we both know the situation. Aircraft changes from the MD to the CRJ happen frequently on the STR-CPH route.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
The bus stopped at the planes front door, all the pax queueing and me?. The planes rear stair was down, no question I´am the only one to use that feature, the perfect way to board a plane!.

Great, I would have done the same.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
CPH has nice places to rest and also nice places for apron pix.
I´ve decied to walk down the B pier, the closest place to the runways.
Nobody there, quiet and good for my layover.

I know the place - really a good area for some spoting. Usually quiet and with good views.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
In the evening:

Very nice picture.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
So, the first two of 21 legs around these trip done.

Wow, 21 legs? That's going to be an interesting read - I'm looking forward to the next part.

Regards
Christoph

Faroe Atlantic Airways has also a somewhat interesting fleet, also especially that 24 years old BAE 146-200, good fare, friendly staff, ok so far.

Was that OY-RCA, looks like it from the pictures? If so then it's the aircraft which I flew from RKV to FAE a few years back - very nice airline, very good service, but really I should think so for the price of their tickets on Faroe routes!

Another great report, looking forwards to reading more  yes

Hey, Markus, Good report, brought back some good memories of my college days when i used to fly the 146 all the time between home and my university. You're also giving me hope that when I fly SK from Cdg-Cph later in the year i might be able to get one more MD-87 in my logbook before they disappear.
Yes, I'd like to see airbus go under so Boeing can have their customers!

Another interesting read. I like Norway a lot - especially from the aviation point of view as it has a very dense network of airports and services for a country of 4.5 million people - but looking at the map and the scenery you understand why.

I've been planning to do the WF milk runs that probably make up most of your 22 legs some time in the future, the TOS-KKN one vith 6 short hops looks very interesting and can often be had for less than 50 EUR all-in. Too bad nothing else in Norway is affordable!

Heading to TOS in end of July with HEL-ARN-TRD-BOO-TOS-ARN-HEL on a single day.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Another warm welcomed type approached the gate, OY-RCA, a BAE146-200, delivered at 13.11.1985 to PSA in the US, for USAir at 09.04.1988.

Funny, I flew the same bird on the exact same route on 10th of May this year. Back on the new CRJ-900. The Dash-fiasco with SK made them to get some really interesting planes to operate the routes, Transwede, JetTime, Air Baltic, Nordic Airways etc. have all flown flights for SK in the past couple of years.

Give me some time to write it down and you will see pix from such "exotic" places with massive 800 meter runways like Sorkjosen or Berlevag!.
And on the other hand side I was absolutely surprised with the rocket launch station
Andenes where, so it seems, you taxi longer than the flight itself!.

Thats indeed a funny coincidence. Or, for example WDL , with the BAE146-100 also flown in and out STR for SK last year.
Btw. catched the SK CRJ900 also last week, but much better the FlySmaland/AvitransNordic SF34, not bad!.
I need some time to write that reports.

Hello Markus!

It has been a while since I commented on your TRs and this one is very interesting especially because you flew with MD.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Thats the way to board a plane:

You are right. It reminds me of my childhood and many, many boardings on DC-9 and B-727s...I miss the sound of APU that can be heard there.

You mentioned that nothing is free onboard SAS planes. It is a bit sad and I'm against it when full-fare airlines give LCC service. Anyway, can you tell me how much is food and drink there?

Thanks again for great TR and all the best from Belgrade,
Aleksandar  wave

Are they really having too much water in CPH, or are all SK captains retiring by now?!



Quoting FLIEGER67 (Reply 11):
It seems some staff cutting actually on SK.

Due to a reduction in capacity of 20% quite a few SAS pilots have gone into early retirement so there is quite a lot of "water shows" in Scandinavia these days

A few points, though:

No -u- in either Qatar or Qantas, please...
Too bad the windsock was in the way of the Iberworld aircraft...
It looks like a FI 757-300 to me...

Well, Avitrans Nordic operates all flights for two Finnish virtual airlines, WingoXPRS and AirÅland and I've got several logs on those covered - so those are familiar planes as well.

Hi Markus,

after traveling myself I was some time off here. Now work is back and I have to read lots of TRs. I was looking forward to your series as I knew about your Scandinavia trip.

On May 30th I was in FRA myself on my way to MAN. So we could have had a short meeting there.

Interesting routing again as always  Smile SVG looks nice.

Now on to the next part.

Cheers,
Stefan

Servus Markus,

I finally found some time to have a look at your latest report series. Your trip and route planning is outstanding, no doubts!

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
A premiere for me today, a new type for my log and also a more and more rare bird here in Europe.

Indeed, they are getting rare. According to ATDB SK's MD-87 will be gone in fall.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
The office:

Nice - but it still looks quite advanced compared to the DC-9.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
CPH has nice places to rest and also nice places for apron pix.

CPH is definitely a good place for a stopover. Just had to change planes there on my way to Trondheim.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Faroe Atlantic Airways operates two machines of that type, leg nr. 6 for me and with some flights on Debonair without regs, it might be new or not, dont know!.

They have three 146-200s in service now. One bird once operated for SK got the regular livery again some few weeks prior to your trip.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
deboarding at a finger gate beneath a LH/EW BAE.

Beneath? Hopefully not!  Wink

Nothing's worse than flying the same reg twice!

Hi Markus,

so finally I have time to catch up on your reports! A great read as always - I was particularly looking forward to this Scandanavian installment.

Loved your shots of boarding the MD87 from the rear. Incredible that nobody else went for those stairs! I still find it hard to believe that you have to pay for everything on SAS. It's a shame they've gone this way.

Interesting to hear about Atlantic Airways, those birds must have some miles on them!

As for Stavanger, I just last week saw some pics of the Preikestolen, a 600m high rock column nearby which drops straight into the fjord....I HAVE to see this one day...

Happy flying
