Why don't they do one of their airbus A330? Would be nice
One assumption, already read on this forum, could be visibility : most of their A330 are flying and are on the airfields essentially at night, at the opposite of the A319/A320 family.

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...

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.
