Beer Saving an Airline

The Scandinavian airline SAS has just been saved from bankruptcy. They make cuts in a lot of areas, such as salaries. However, they may have something to learn from Japan. The head of Japan Airlines, Kazuo Inamori, brought beer to his meetings with the employees. This made them open up to him and brought an informal air to the meetings. I doubt that a head of an airline in part owned by the governments of Sweden and Norway would dare to do the same, though. There are so many taboos surrounding beer and other alcoholic beverages in Scandinavia. I would like to see SAS make it, though. It is the best airline for traveling with dogs we know of.
