It's not the first time that trade unions use a journalist in an ongoing social conflict with management. Hence: added value of this article = zero.
Looks you are always right nice to discuss with you ;)
That's to easy please argue with some proof and please learn to listen to others....open your mind and discuss.
Hasta la victoria siempre.

Easiest things is to shout “fake news”. Then it doesn’t need to be discussed. We all know another certain someone who’s very good at it.

On the contrary I fi d this article very worrying.

1. Philippe Lawson, whom I know personally, is a very respected journalist.
2. This would be the first time ever that L'Echo works for the unions.
3. The positions of management and unions remain irreconcilable and that's bad news for the future of SN.

While browsing through the flightradar24 departure board, I noticed plenty of cancellations and delays on SN flights operated by Superjets. According to the history this is happening now for a few weeks and it seems like 3-4 Superjets are on the ground right now. Is there any known reason or information when they will resume regular service?

Maybe LH can start to replace those Sukhoi's with E-jets or Q400's (they have a lot of them at EW/LGW) as cityjet can't send in the RJ85 everytime to solve it

I asked the question to SN last week and they replied that indeed one of the SSJ100s was AOG. Furthermore Sukhoi has very little spare parts available in Europe, which means that aircraft can remain AOG for a long time.

seems like they made an excellent choice opting for Cityjet's wetlease knowing it was a brand new aircraft with little to no spare parts ...

There is an SLA clause in the contract, if it is not met due to technical failures, Brussels Airlines will be (financially) compensated in some way or another. That is of course no use for the passengers which journey is delayed... Anyway, I heard rumours that the CItyjet contract will not be renewed (under pressure from Lufthansa). But on the other hand, that sounds a bit strange as it was just extended with a 5th aircraft.

In my opinion, it would be more logical for a LH Group regional airline (Air Dolomiti, Cityline or LGW) to open a base in BRU and to operate flights for SN. However, I fear that all of them are more expensive than cityjet, which then kind of nullifies the need for a smaller aircraft below the SN A319.

That’s really no good news. Hope they get the SSJs back in the air soon. It’s strange to see that they simply cancel these flights for weeks and don’t subcharter any equipment. But of course availability might be limited in high season.

There are two parties involved in this social conflict.
A good journalist reports the views from both parties. If not, his article is subjective. That's the only thing I have posted about that article. But even that seems to be too much when crew and/or trade unions are involved.

Any idea about which destinations will replace the 3 frequencies lost on Kinshasa? SN doesn't seem to be in a hurry to fly its aircraft. Or are they hoping Kabila will change his mind?

Has been reported a few times already. Soon (in June) IAD will go to daily (+1), Accra/Lomé will get a respectively 6th/5th frequency (+1) and the 3rd one was I believe EBB/KGL. DLA/NSI also benefits from it, both being daily now for some time already (NSI wasn't before as DLA was combined with FIH on some days).

Thanks RoMax, I'd missed that information.

OO-SFO will operate today EW1104/EW1105 DUS-RSW-DUS.
OO-SFB is having a E-check and is not ready on time.
Best regards,

Brussels Airlines prepared tonight the cabin of Trident, the official Red Devils aircraft. Belgian people could choose 35 great moments in het history of the team. Pictures of these moments are now placed on the overhead cabins of the plane. Pictures and a short movie via the following link:

Let's hope that kind of support will work both ways!
