Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Business class seems the same as the business class in LX (B777).

I just was on one of their flights in business to SIN and I recognize many of the details

Will check when taking a SN flight to Washington in May if it has the new interior of course :D

Re: Flybmi ceases operations

What could this mean for LH and SN flights?

I recently noticed that Adria Airways and Air Dolomiti are doing more and more 'regional' flights for LH (e.g. often the flight MUC-BRU is with the latter).

Would we see them also flying for SN?

Re: Brussels Airlines' monthly traffic figures

We really miss the official SN figures. :( You asked for it, you get it! In 2018, SN operated 80,505 flights and transported 10,026,241 passengers, sorry, guests. That is a new record and an increase of 10.5% over 2017 (+9.7% on the European network, +16.9% on the African network, +6.0% on the Nort...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

Of course SN expanded - please try to stick to figures and not to emotions - Thomas Cook integration meant +10% expansion ...

What do you expect?

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

But LH has no spare aircraft; why would they give it some of them SN?

I think they will stick to the SSJ for the time being ... another solution will need more time.

Just my two cents

PS: BTW, I was on an CRJ900 yesterday and a lot less comfortable than the SSJ100 ...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Maybe, but what makes you think/say that?

What could replace the SSJ. Some routes are thin and can't sustain A319, some airports can't host them ...

So what would be the solution.

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

I see that SN plans to have more SSJ's

See https://sites.google.com/site/lhgroupfleet/brussels

I assume one remains for some time 'inactive', another would be a kind of reserve. 5 could become operational. Or would SN go for 7 in total?

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Hi all, I have a more general question on the 'preparation' of the 'new' A330 of SN. The painting is clear and it seems it can be done in many different places (FCO, ...). What else are they doing?

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

Free check-in of your hand luggage is already possible with SN from the begining of April ... We did it with the family when going to Venice. The problem is at the pax side who often taken too big bags (e.g. not respecting sizes) and then, when there seems not to be enough space in the overhead bins...
