Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Two A332 are remaining in the fleet: OO-SFT : entry 19/03/2012 from LX. OO-SFZ : entry 31/07/2017 from WK. Source www.airfleets.net Maybe there will be some ''new'' aircrafts orders from 2020? The only question is if OO-SFB will come back from EW-wetlease? Isn't OO-SFB supposed to come back for SN f...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

Beside their market in Entebbe, Kigali and Bujumbura, another battle to win for SN should be to come back to Nairobi ASAP (2019-2020 ?). If the LH group makes the decision. Not that obvious... After a long absence, LH (autumn 2015 after 16 years) and ... AF (spring 2018 after 18 years) are back in N...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

Even if it's never too late in the aviation market, the arrival of PF at BRU indicates that it's a missed opportunity for the LH management, UA and SN. As for EWR early evening flight than for BOS. Probably, in 2019 and beyond, SN should keep flying daily on JFK with it's own metal as JFK is not a U...

Re: BRU Summer 2019: news, new routes, airlines

I am sure that there is a market for early evening NYC Flight out of BRU. We work s lot with NYC and most of our clients visiting take the evening to EWR via ZRH they would be delighted to fly out direct at around 18:00 a 19:00 from BRU. And that flight is excellent for those suffering from jetlag....
