Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

I was talking to a good friend TRI/TRE flying for Brussels Airlines and the future looks very dark. Lufthansa Group will give financial priority to Lufthansa FIRST and nothing is sure about a Belgian State Aid, cash situation is critical at SN as we speak (type...). The current situation is that SN ...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Finally some time to write here something after a very hectic time. Sorry if the question was already but I had no time to read everything On our Brucargo it is now busier than ever. Really a lot of cargo flights and even more to come. There is even lack of capacity as belly cargo felt away. Would ...

Why would an Aer Lingus A330 delivery flight from Toulouse stop in Brussels?
Note that this will be the very last A330-300 “CEO” ever built. :shock:

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Does this one have the full new cabin C-W and Y ? :?: As for the paint scheme, I trust SN's brains creativity at b.house to issue a drawing contest and a scheme that will be stickered to stay on the "reboot" scope and frame (with the internal moto "da moet niks kosten hé"). Jokes aside, I hope SN is...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

What I read here is utter BS. The situation where there is only one F.A in the aft galley is when the duty free sales are in progress or the inventory and sales are being completed in the front / mid galley by the rest of the F.A. That might take up to 3 (!!) hours on a december or july Kinshasa fli...

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. ;)

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...

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...
