From today, I have reopened this long, dead thread and rebranded it from...

Scandinavian Airlines - SAS

to the title you see today. Not only you can discuss developments from SAS, but also from the following airlines:

- Air Greenland (GL)
- Atlantic Airways (Faroe Islands) (RC)
- Blue 1 (KF)
- Finnair (AY)
- Icelandair (FI)
- Norwegian Air Shuttle (DY)
- Widerøe (WF)

Let's bring this thread back to life, folks!

A bit silly with the dancing couple... SAS know all too well that they are a failing airline... with too high prices... running deficit for 10 years straight...

Wait... who owns Scandinavian Airlines? I know three countries manage it collectively, namely Denmark, Norway, and Sweden... And by the way, it will start a new service soon between Stockholm and Hong Kong, which will begin 10 September 2015. It will be operated 5x weekly, initially on board a mix of A330 and A340 aircraft. From 5 October 2015, it will be operated solely with the A330-300. Schedule:

SK963 ARN1500 – 0720+1HKG 333 146
SK963 ARN1500 – 0720+1HKG 343 57

SK964 HKG0905 – 1435ARN 333 257
SK964 HKG0905 – 1435ARN 343 16

Source

Now I wonder if SAS will be sending the A333 to SFO soon... or am I just wishful thinking? It sees a near-daily (6x weekly) service from CPH.

Well, it's all a matter of opinion. SAS has been an airline that has survived a lot of turmoil for nearly 70 years, and with Norwegian Air Shuttle competing against a venerable carrier, it could mean that Scandinavia can become more accessible than ever before.

You are right. This is the corporate structure:



http://www.sasgroup.net/en/legal-structure/

Major shareholders of Scandinavian Airlines System Aktiebolag (AB) (or SAS Group) are:
  • The Swedish Government -21.4%
  • The Danish Government - 14.3%
  • The Norwegian Government - 14.3%

ICELANDAIR ANNOUNCES SERVICE TO CHICAGO O'HARE

Quote:
CHICAGO, May 12, 2015 - Icelandair today announces further expansion of its global network with new year-round service from Chicago O'Hare International Airport (ORD). Flights will begin March 16, 2016 with four weekly round-trips to Iceland on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, with connections to more than 20 destinations in Europe.

Icelandair, in operation since 1937, has a long, illustrious history of providing flights from the United States to Europe, including a 15-year stint from Chicago that began in 1973. Since then, Icelandair has continued to grow as an airline with new aircraft, modern amenities and more destinations. With the announcement of Chicago O'Hare International Airport, Icelandair will now offer service from 15 North American gateways.

"We are excited to return to Chicago as a bigger, better airline that can best serve the dynamic market of this world-class city and its nearly 10 million inhabitants. Chicagoans will now have a refreshing alternative when traveling to Iceland and beyond, and Icelanders and Europeans will have direct access to the vibrant and historic city of Chicago. This is an exciting and significant moment for Icelandair and we look forward to welcoming Chicago aboard," said Birkir Holm Gudnason, CEO of Icelandair.

Icelandair needs to think about flying to the Baltic's, like Riga.

They probably don't fly to the Baltic countries because there is little to no demand from Iceland. Right now I think their main strategy is to use Reykjavik as a hub for flights between major cities in North America and Europe, which makes sense because of it's location. Anyways they still don't serve other larger European cities such as Rome or Berlin and other cities such as Brussels, Hamburg, Milan, Madrid, and Barcelona are only offered seasonally so I would expect Icelandair's main strategy would be to add more daily flights to those cities first before they add more flights to secondary destinations such as Riga.

It does not necessarily make sense for Icelandair to focus on the largest cities in Europe or North America. The biggest cities need to be served of course for the traffic originating or terminating in Iceland but for the transatlantic hub traffic that makes up a big part of Icelandair's business it can also make sense to seek out secondary cities that don't currently have a good service to North America. I am not sure Riga has enough demand for either Iceland or North America to support an Icelandair route. There is a significant population of expats from the Baltic states that live in Iceland, particularly Lithuanians, but WOW Air already has a seasonal service from KEF to Vilnius.

WOW Air (WW) should probably be added to the thread title as a North Atlantic carrier. They are now in the second month of their new North American routes from KEF. The Boston and BWI routes seem to be quite successful so far. The airline is trying to enter the New York market as well and is looking at alternatives to JFK or EWR. They have been looking at Long Island MacArthur Airport (ISP) which currently has no international service. The local authorities are quite excited about it. This wouldn't just be a big deal for WW but also an introduction of the European LCC model to New York. It is common in Europe for LCCs to fly into distant airports that are less expensive and less slot restrained. It would be interesting to see if the same could work in New York.

Well Long Island MacArthur Airport does not even have customs and immigration facilities so I doubt WOW Air will consider flying there unless they are planning to build immigration and customs facilities at that airport. Anyways JFK is served by Norwegian so this would not be the first European LCC to serve New York.

Despite the US being such a "can do" country there's been a remarkable amount of "can't do" comment on the the web about this report in the Long Island local media. Even the idea of a private contractor providing a coach service into NYC seems to have been beyond the imagination of many commentators.

Anyway, I think WOW to ISP is an intriguing idea which obviously has infrastructure issues, but unlike Norwegian at JFK, it really does follow the classic Ryanair/Southwest model. And actually I think it would make some sense for the Euro budget crowd (and is more honest an appellation than Frankfurt/Hahn or Milan/Bergamo).
