Hope for some good bargains, but I guess the exchange rate will ruin this opertunity. Right know it is about 7,2:1 NOK:USD

Maybe the prices in NOK will be better in a couple of months?

I still haven't tried and will do my best to keep avoiding B757 trans-atlantic. In the end it might not differ that much, but it is just a bit more magical flying a wide-body.

For me, the important thing would be if the prices are good connecting to other US routes. I know that PHL is hell to connect through, but if can get to my favoured destinations with one less change of plane, I'd risk it. Of course, the arrival time at PHL is somewhat late, which might reduce choice.

I know this is a bit off-post, but US is arguably the worst U.S. domestic carrier, charging extra even for soft drinks on domestic flights, so I would think most passengers would prefer another connection, whether by another U.S. flag carrier or a *A connection OSL-XXX-final, where the domestic leg is not as unbearable as US Airways'

No problem for SAS-costumers, we are used to that kind of treatment.
