So during this period of suspended service, what will be done with the wide-body planes that SAS will have pulled from China service?

A lot of airlines seem to have planes that may go underutilized due to the suspension of China service. I wonder what all SAS and some of these airlines will do with the extra plane availability time.

Mostly maintenance or stored. The time frame and notice is to short for additional routes or flights on existing routes. A few cases of swapping to a larger bird on existing routes might happen, but it will be the rare case.
