    SAS will also upgrade interiors (including lie-flat in Business) on up to 7 aircraft in their existing fleet.

    Great news!

    I hope they're still around to take delivery on them. The key to this order must have been quite exceptional financial magic.

    They will be around. The question is more like who is owning them then.

    I hope the new aircraft will be enough to persuade me to fly SK longhaul in the future.

    Good point. It is hard to see one of the traditional European buyers making this one, or LOT for that matter, simply because LH, AF/KL and IAG are all in such difficult positions themselves. Listed in inverse order of problems, I think. I hope there is a good solution, partly for competition and partly for nostalgia.

    I am quite sure they will be around!

    Not more financial magic than a bankrupt AA buying 400+ aircraft from Airbus and Boeing :)

    A good move from SAS, with both some short term improvements and a long term upgrade of the longhaul fleet.

    That magic is called leasing.....

    SAS also got rather favourable terms regarding upfront payments
