Crazy how a flag can be of an importance to some...
Of course it is. To the point that most countries most it compulsory. But not Belgium... :(

Nor in the UK, which explains why the Flybe Q400s flying for SN could sport the Belgian flag with a British registration.

One can discuss a lot about brands, we could have a look on Facebook and how many followers some airline have (only the ones that spring into my mind):

Qatar Airways: 13,000,000
Emirates: 9,000,000
British Airways: 3,000,000
Lufthansa: 3,400,000
Air France: 7,100,000
KLM: 12,400,000
easyJet: 1,500,000
Ryanair: 2,800,000
Qantas: 1,200,000

all in the millions, even lots of multi-millions

Eurowings: 664,000
Brussels Airlines: 324,000

that's just terrible low...

VLM Airlines: 6,600
Air Belgium: 3,900

no comment !

if it's like the current wetlease they'll add the Brussels Airlines logo on the door
I believe there will indeed be an ‘operated by brussels airlines’ title on door 1L, like the sunexpress a330.
I hope so .. as it's on the Brussels Airlines registry .. at least on the inside it'll be shown on their safety cards.. but the outside needs that mentioning as well
The “operated by...” is a legal requirement.

If you claim the Q400 was yours, then the A340 is not yours but EWªs!

This is their followers on their Facebook page (Read again). Nothing to do with the number of PAX they have

exactly my point. the bigger the airline, the more chance you will have more followers, capisce?

What a mess with SN's long haul fleet. A real demonstration of why it is not possible to fly on intercontinental flights when flying a lot! Terrific ! Today the winner is SN 278 LOME ACCRA that it's cancelled !
The new management has a Titan job to regularize all this!
I'm really sad for SN and I begin to think that Eurowings will be only a lesser evil...

The biggest hurdle has been taken, the replacement aircraft are about to start arriving. 1 a/c type and 1 engine type replacing a mixture of engine types and 2 a/c types. Spare parts will be more available due to less difference between them. The engineers will have less training requirements. So all-in-all much less hassle to get the right person, equipment and spare parts dispatched to an a/c that's AOG.

Cheap excuse as their long haul fleet of 10 aircraft consists of 2 different types. Well... 'different' types...

2 different ones -200 and 300 but 3 different engine types which makes it difficult to acquire spare parts.

Why didn't/doesn't LH invest in brand new aircraft for SN ? Plenty of money for LX abd EW. Peanuts for SN.

Flight to Accra is well operated. Please try to avoid drawing such dramatic conclusions then.

nordikcam is right: today's SN1277 replaces SN277 that was cancelled yesterday.

There is almost a daily problem with one of the l/h flights.
