Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Prices to GVA for instance start at EUR 289 o/w on flex and fast.. return flight is close to EUR 600! They can at least still offer drinks on short Flights! Not a good idea to cut on premium pax. Cutting the meals on F&F goes against what CEO Christina Foerster said at Thursday's press conference. ...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

SN is still flying to Nantes today. Do they still plan to discontinue? Will end 23/11. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brussels_Airport#Airlines_and_destinations Don't know if that information is correct, but that explains it ... BTW: in the November issue of B-Inspired following destinations can...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

It seems they are already shrinking the short/medium haul fleet right now. Not surprisingly since the winter season started and TC is not existing anymore. According to https://sites.google.com/site/lhgroupfleet/brussels - Czech Airlines planes are gone (I think originally part of those were meant t...

Re: BRU Summer 2020: news, new routes, airlines

Maybe, but if I check at several moments, there are only some at that price (one way). We want to go to a leisure destination for a week or 10 days at the end of the year or early next year (had no holidays yet) and most tickets are at much higher prices, e.g. 160€ in Januari to go to Tenerife (>300...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Wow, 40 flights to/from Africa in a year, that is quite a lot. Impressive. What type of business are you dong there? [I have this year 6 trips to Africa, Mozambique, so unfortunately not a destination I can fly SN]. A lot of drama-queens/kings here :D I fly a lot, have sometimes cancellations (ofte...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

OO-SFG seems to come back to BRU today ...

It is already planned to fly to Accra today but that seems a bit optimistic to me ...

See: https://www.flightradar24.com/data/aircraft/oo-sfg

Which bird will be next to get the new interior?

Cheers

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Anyone knows what OO-SFE is doing in Amman?

Yesterday and today OO-SFE had several short flights (?). I thought it was only there for a cabin refit. Or are there also technical issues with the bird?

See: https://www.flightradar24.com/data/aircraft/oo-sfe

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

The reason why OS is more of a network airline is not of its intercontinental network (they have more or less the same number of long haul aircraft as SN) but are the many connections to eastern european destinations (70+% of pax is transfer traffic). If you look at their route map you hardly see an...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Also, I read somewhere that they want to have 5 planes with the new interior by August. So that would mean they have to accelerate the process a bit and have one of the next months (June or July) two planes done in one month. I thought they said 5 planes with premium economy installed by August, SF...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Hi all, Does anyone know how long installing the new cabin takes. The first one - SDF - took much longer than expected (for various reasons I guess), but normally it would take not more than one month, correct? I guess first SFY will go since it was foreseen to let it go in April, but was extended a...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Hi all, I was recently on an SN flight to YYZ on one of their A332. I was in business class and I was surprised only 11 from the XX (32?) seats were taken. The service is (as usual) quite good, but the business class itself is worn out, especially the litlle tables do not work wel anymore (they know...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

If you look at https://sites.google.com/site/lhgroupfleet/brussels you'll see that OO-SFU will leave the fleet also, but only in one year (March 2020) ... So for the time being it will be still at 10 planes from then onwards ... unless some of the A330 additional aircraft planned by LH are for SN (s...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Question,

Will OO-SFF be with the new cabin outfit when it joins the fleet in June, or will it start flying and then be transformed at a later stage?

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
