Tight connection [in BGO]

I'm connecting in Bergen, BGO, on Friday on a tight connection, 50 mins, hand having a look at historical data I'm not very confident often 20/30 mins late.

The flight I arrive on SK 4173 is often late on a Friday, doesn't fly everyday. My hope is that they will hold SK 1482 to Stockholm, ARN, but I've just seen there is a Norwegian flight later. I've a Qatar flight at 22:40 on a separate PNR that evening and the Norwegian gets in later.

Is there any chance that SAS would put me on the Norwegian flight or would they be more likely to hold SK 1482?

SAS have two other options - they could route you from AES to Oslo, and ARN from there, or do the same from BGO. There are plenty of flights to ARN from OSL.

Connecting at BGO takes no time at all. So I wouldn't be worried too much. The ARN evening flights are usually half empty anyway.

Also didn't there used to be an hour or bihourly flight from BGO to ARN on SK? Or at least last summer?

0 chance to be put on the DY flight. Since SK1482 is the last flight, they might hold it for 10 to 15 minutes but I wouldn't bet on it. Having a separate ticket out of ARN, I wouldn't risk it and go earlier the day from AES, e.g. using
  • 14:50 – 15:45 (55m)
    Departure time 14:50 arrival time 15:45 (00:55:00) hours
    Aalesund AES – Oslo OSL

Thanks for your reply.

A much cleverer chap than I just checked flightradar24 and assures me the the aircraft I land on in Bergen is the same one that will depart to Stockholm.

Well, that makes things much easier and should work out fine then

I'm sorry, but there's absolutely no way that anybody can find such information on FR24 several days before the flight. The exact aircraft may even be changed on the day of the flight. If there's some problem with the first flight, such as a heavy delay, SAS may choose to just use another airplane.

If I were you, I'd do as Fassy recommended and go via OSL instead. More flights.

Apparently every Friday for the last twelve weeks the aircraft for SK4173 has departed BGO as SK1482.
I'm willing to risk it being the same on this Friday.
