Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

The remaining lease contract on SFX and uncertain future of that specific plane afterwards doesn't make a 10 million Euro investment in all new seats, galleys, lighting,... - like on the 7 'new' purchased (by LH) A333s - worth it. A pity yes in product consistency, but same issue as on the 2 remain...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

OO-SFX was indeed the first "new" A333 of the renewal project, when they received it, it had the SQ Regional interior. During its previous C-check it received the standard SN interior (I think in MLA) but this was done before the newest product was introduced. Hence, I assume they wanted to spare so...

OO-SFT on the way to Brussels from Toronto as SN9908.
Does flight number SN9908 has a special meaning ?
Alain.
"Callsign 99xx" is generally a technical flight / maintenance check or positioning flight. ;)

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

OO-SFT stuck in Toronto / CYYZ. Engine failed to start up upon pushback. Pax remained seated four hours on-board and they never found a suitable solution. The rep told me the spare-part needed to come from BRU, strange since P&W is a US-Canada joint-venture... No more YYZ flights until Dec.17th :( ...

Re: Eurowings in 2019

Perhaps the moment to send back the A330 to SN. And end of DUS The base of the long-haul fleet of SN is ten A330 (two -200 and eight -300 when SFU will be replaced by SFH currently in cabin works straight from HK to AMM). That's the fleet needed to operate the current schedule (let's say the peak o...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Anyone heard about the social plans at SN ? It seems that was presented to the unions the past few days is really looking like a social plan, with lay-offs... The "volunteers" concept is a very special approach... to say the least from what I've read. The ultimate goal being: to get enough volunteer...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Some updates I could grab from a relative in the wake of last week's O.R / C.E : - TC still has a huge debt towards SN, of a few millions of €. Contrary to what was previously said, SN was paid four to five weeks after the flights, like hotels with the stays (up to three months in that case) - 10% o...

Re: Thomas Cook ceases trading; UK CAA launches giant programme to fly its customers home

The two rotations that are cancelled today, are charter flights exclusive for Thomas Cook. That way, Brussels Airlines puts all the responsability with THCB (as the B2B contract states). Indeed, those destinations aren't even on the destinations-map of SN. So I assume these are indeed scheduled cha...

Consequences of the looming Thomas Cook bankruptcy on Brussels Airlines

I'm rather astonished to see the little reactions regarding Thomas Cook / Neckermann future financial woes... and possible bankruptcy. This will for sure greatly impact SN's financials and its operations. They have adapted their A32F fleet capacity in accordance to the Thomas Cook take-over. If Thom...

Re: [Discussion] no direct flights anymore between Brussels and Miami

Mia was for many years in the pipeline of AA with their B757. They requested many slots for it but never used it. Orlando was a much better destination as many Flemish people bought a villa there after the financial crisis in 2008. Tui was offering those flights and for the cruises. But those desti...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

Ok, let me explain. As you probably knows, BAC bought the Sheraton in front of the airport some time ago. Real Estate is a big part of the airports portfolio. Two major reasons for this: the hotel has most of the time full capacity, sold out and second, when you are owner of it, you can do with it ...
