Looks like SAS is really pushing to get the ban on frequent flyer miles on domestic flights in Norway lifted. The Norwegian Competition Authority begun a new evaluation of the ban in December 2010, following the development of the market, where Norwegian Air shuttle since it's start in 2002 has grown to be equal in size to SAS on most major domestic routes - which means the situation now is completely different from when the ban was first introduced. In addition, SAS has made an appeal against the state of Norway to the EFTA Surveillance Authority (ESA), the grounds being that the ban may be a violation of the EEA (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_Economic_Area). http://www.aftenposten.no/reise/nyheter/article4002606.ece The appeal was made in Nov10, but has not been made known until now and the ESA gave Norway a deadline of March 1st to come up with an answer. A decision from ESA can lead to Norway being forced to lift the ban from 2002. I don't want to get my hopes up, but could be big news for us who fly SK mainly domestic, without a single point to show for it.
