    I happen to love Scandinavian Airlines, as you may have already seen in my travel bLOG.

    http://www.captainsvoyage.com/travel-blog/

    Today, or was it yesterday, I received an e-mail from SAS where they are letting us know about the brand new on board, in flight high speed internet.

    They made a video of the promotional kind, with little explanation as to which routes gets this feature first, and which routes gets it last.

    I wish they could have explained the news way better in the video instead.

    Kortdistanseflygninger med SAS blir bedre og bedre. Snart vil vårt nye høyhastighets-WiFi være tilgjengelig om bord de fleste flygninger på tvers av Europa, slik at du kan være tilkoblet fra du tar av og helt til du lander.

      Here is a glimpse back to a totally different time: when a flight was something truly exotic.

      Even though I truly appreciate the standards back then, I'm at the same time so in love with the aviation of today. We have come so far, but it's still important to remember where we came from.

      This is a video on youtube from 1959!

        Scandinavian's first, second and third A350 has arrived at the Airbus production list:

        https://sites.google.com/site/a350xw...roduction-list

        Number 358, 378 and number 393.

        Can't wait to see these take to the skies and even better, can't wait to fly with them! So excited for SAS!

          One thing though, I see there are quite a few open spaces on the list too... wonder what that means? Canceled orders?

            Looking forward to both welcome and fly on the first Scandinavian A350 when it's delivered later on this year.

              SAS will be leasing three A321neoLR

              Scandinavian Airlines announced on January 23rd 2019 that they have entered a contract with ALC (Air Lease Corporation) for rent of 3 Airbus 321neoLR.

              The three aircrafts will start service under SAS livery in the beginning of 2020, and is expected to enter service on a still unannounced route(s) during first half of 2020.

              The aircraft is capable of flying to both the US east coast, Canada, Middle East and India without stop.

                It's probably no secret that I really like Scandinavian Airlines. They appear to me as the perfect airline, subtle but throughout great. The domestic product still needs some work to get a higher star, but their intercontinental routes and flights are nothing but SUPERB!

                I love their profile in almost everything they print, do and present. They appear to be environmentally concerned without throwing the responsibility over to the customer, they have done an incredible job to become more efficient economically, and their aircrafts have become their trademark.

                If I could change only one thing in SAS, it would be painting more aircrafts in their retro-livery!

                Here are some images taken on a recent day-trip to OSLO:

                  Dear readers,

                  May I ask you a question, and if so: how do you like this video from SAS?

                  It's very different from many other airline-adverts I have seen, and personally, I think it's an emotionally great video. Perhaps all of you see it different, and I would therefore love to hear what you think?

                    To be honest, I've seen that movie flicker in my news roll, but I have never taken the time to watch it - until now.
                    Yes it is different, well made and comes with a very nice mood. But still, it's nothing that I stop at.

                    Talking about the beauty of the arrival hall, I normally try to pass it asap, and unfortunately the only ones that might be waiting for me are transfer taxi-drivers...

                  SE-REU, a Boeing 737-76N(WL) delivered to SAS in mid-August 2012 after having served with Virgin Blue and Virgin Australia sine 2002.

                  Folke Viking it is.

                    Cute small aircraft from SAS: a Bombardier CRJ-900LR (CL-600-2D24) delivered to SAS in March 2016.... ALOF VIKING.

                    I have some problems understanding the history of this aircraft... was it flown as CityJet prior to SAS?

                    Or, is it a SAS aircraft OPERATED by City Jet?

                    PS: Note those engines in the aft, they almost look like Micky ouse ears... LOL

                      The Bombardier CRJ-900LR (CL-600-2D24) fleet marked in SAS livery, is on wet-lease from City Jet. That means City Jet hold aircraft, maintenance and complete crew.
                      The type was totally useless to operate in and out of Kvernberget in Kristiansund.
                      There were cancellations, overflying, they turned around half way and flew back to Oslo and so on, and so on.
                      Why? Weather.
                      They couldn't cope with wind, nor precipitation and low visibility..., even though the Dash 8 from Widerøe and other type aircraft flew in and out at the same time.
                      There were a hole lot of super angry people in Kristiansund, and FINALLY, a year ago SAS took the hint and replaced the Bombardier with Boeing 737, and promised we would never see the Bombardier in Kristiansund ever again.
                      The use of Bombardier at Kvernberget resulted in a flow of passengers using Molde airport, and you might understand the anger that led to here :-)

                        Thank you Sterkoder, that was a very interesting background both about the ownership and your city's experience with the aircraft.

                        I didn't actually know this plane was such a bad choice for weather-prone areas. Nothing beats Dash 7 or Dash 8, or the B737.

                        I can now imagine this aircraft as a "bad" choice for areas with wind... the aircraft is small and the wings looks really long, at least in the first image.

                          This is NOT my picture, I'm sorry for not remembering who took it, but it is one of the plane spotters at Værnes airport. I hope it's ok to use it just to show a Bombardier in south-east wind landing at Værnes

                            OMG!!! ..... What a brilliant shot of a frightening situation!

                            I can now clearly see that the length of the wings is not favourable for this aircraft in bad weather.

                            I have flown this kind of aircraft a handful number of times, sometimes also on the 6:00 AM departure from TRD to Stockholm. Never in this kind of weather!.
