Very good idea! ^

Although it is against my principles to fly SK, I cannot miss out on this one

CPH or most likely ARN pick-up.

Has it now been fixed that there will be a party at OSL?

with tommy on his home turf there will be a nice pre-evening party for sure

I just hope he knows that FAs are required to have 0.0 alcohol in the blood the next morning...

Nothing is confirmed yet. As of right now, the Airbus 319 is too small for this group (101 seats with seatblocking in C, 122 persons on the list + SAS reps, around 25% will cancel, but more will join) and since we have a lot more contacts in SASNO, we playing around with the idea using a Euro version of the 737-800 (140 seats with our set up).

We are going to try to find volunteers to handling, flying and flight attendants to get the costs down and because we have a lot more contacts in Norway and can get valuable help from the Scanair bunch, the DO might start in Oslo. There will of course be a pre-DO party wherever the DO will start and a Champagne breakfast party in a SAS hangar on the morning before departure.

But like I said, nothing is written in stone.

The real FA's, yes. The fake ones, not so sure...

Since it's been said that you don't show up in Toulouse in a CRJ, wouldn't it be equally blasphemous to show up in a Boeing?

Not our fault that Airbus hasn't sold any A320s to SAS

A Dash 8 would be even funnier.

Is it not possible to use the A321s?

This is true...but one more confirmed seat will get you from a sold out 738 to a sold out 321. ^

Actually, the 321 is only fractionally larger than the 738 and because we know a lot of people in SAS Norway, we are leaning towards using SASNO instead of SASDK from a price perspective.

But again, nothing is written in stone

This is probably a pretty stupid question but I will ask anyway: those flight attendants have to be SAS employees or is any kind of certificate for a specific a/c type enough proof in this case? I might know somebody who would be willing to work for some great fun, she works on A320, B737, A332/3!
