Scandinavian Airlines

The past two days' rises in SAS shares still do not represent a massive increase in raw SKR, but it was at least a relief from previous falls, and some encouragement that the airline may be looking to an escape route from its awful decline this year. The sale of Spanair has apparently been a very positive move, having previously been a negative pull on the value of SAS.
