Airline SAS cancels 228 more flights18 September 2007
Airline SAS said on Monday it was cancelling at least 228 flights through to Wednesday this week because of the grounding of all its Dash 8-400 aircraft following two crash-landings last week.
In separate statements, SAS Sweden and SAS Denmark said they would cancel 48 flights and 180 flights, respectively.
Two SAS planes crash-landed within days, one in Denmark on Sept. 9 and another in Lithuania on Sept. 12, due to problems with landing gear. No one was seriously hurt in either incident.
