Scandinavian carrier SAS is in ”loose talks with different parties” over its future, its chairman Fritz Schur said.
He told a Danish daily newspaper Berlingske: "I heard today that some people are suggesting that SAS will be taken over on Thursday.
”I can only say that I'm going on a wine trip on Thursday. That has been planned for some time and it still is.
He said the airline group was "looking at structural issues...We are not in negotiations."
