What airline is DOT? A Lithuanian airline comes up when i put DOT in.
Norwegian sent me an email that my Berlin to CPH flight in December will now but served by DOT.
I think they mean DAT no? Danish Air Transit- That would just make much more sense given I am going to CPH than a Lithuanian airline
The one time i book a low cost carrier and am flying in Coach and this happens. They already changed the flight 2 times. Once by 10 minutes then by an additional 5 minutes. But now an airline change
Does anyone know this DOT? And do you think its alright? I know its just an hour flight. I looked around to see of any other non stop and SAS has nothing as they didnt originally when i booked. Its just Easy Jet or Norwegian but of course the Norwegian is now DOT
There is a train but i am taking a train already from Prague to Berlin and would like to get to CPH quicker than by train
If you’re alright flying out of Tegel instead of Schönefeld, then SAS flies nonstop.
But either way, I wouldn’t worry too much. I’m not familiar with DOT but your flight is in the air for somewhere around 40 minutes. I don’t think any of your options will impress or disappoint much. My guess is it’s just like how some domestic flights may be “operated by Envoy Air on behalf of American, etc.”
It seems like your flight is wet leased and will be operated by DAT Lithuania, which used to be called DOT LT. They just must have used the old name by accident. But wet leases are very common with how many issues airlines are having nowadays
Thanks for the info… And does look like a “DBA” type of deal much like Mesa Airlines dba for American. Just confused if its a Lithuanian airline or a Danish Airline. I guess its Lithuanian but goes by Danish Air Transit since they are working flights in and out of Denmark.
As far as switching to Tegel that would be closer to the city, its just that SAS does not fly non stop on Fridays.. It looks like they only do non stop 4 days a week.
I could go Easy Jet if i wanted to, out of Tegel and non stop. But not sure that is any better than just keeping things how i have it on Norwegian (DAT).
If I want SAS I would have to leave Saturday morning instead of the Friday night flight and would lose 1 night in Copenhagen. The morning flight is early so that would be good but not sure its worth the trouble
DAT bought DOT and changed its name to DAT LT (Lithuania).
