The Cranky Flier Interview: General Manager SAS Americas, Max Knagge:

Have you missed the podcast? Well, I’m finally back with a new episode. This time, I’ve put together an interview with Max Knagge, the man who runs the Americas for SAS.

I’ve always had a soft spot for SAS, at least, I’ve had one since I first boarded an SAS DC-10 for my first transatlantic flight at the age of seven. Since that time, SAS has had its ups and downs. It has long struggled with complex labor issues that come from being based in three separate, high-cost countries. It was one of the first to feel the onslaught of Norwegian’s rapid growth. And while it is a member of the Star Alliance, it hasn’t been invited to the joint venture party with any of the big guys.

With that background, I was interested to talk to Max about the airline’s plans for the future. Take a listen below for this 23 minute episode of The Cranky Flier Interview.
