Re: Adria Airways suspends operations for the next two days

https://twitter.com/MihaLobnik/status/1177937196197789697 This is not English?!?! Well... a picture says a thousand words. It shows at least one A319 and one CRJ-900 have been re-registered. If this can happen so fast, I wonder how Adria Airways will stay afloat next week and beyond 02 October.

Re: Adria Airways suspends operations for the next two days

Adria has been given until 02 October to sort out their problems. Meanwhile its fleet seems to have been reduced to 10 aircraft: 6 CRJ-900 and 4 Saab 2000.

Re: Diversions from around the globe (medical, technical, ...) 2019

According to Flightradar24, OO-SNM performed a rather unusual flight from BRU to LJU as SN9905. Just a planned charter or maintenance flight or stand-by for a likely Adria Airways collapse?

Re: Thomas Cook ceases trading; UK CAA launches giant programme to fly its customers home

The Nordic branches of Thomas Cook seem to be saved, according to various media sources. This includes Ving (tour operator) and Thomas Cook Airlines Scandinavia.

Now let's hope Thomas Cook Belgium will make it as well!

Re: Air Antwerp, a new airline from Antwerp Deurne airport

Air Antwerp opened bookings via KLM. €70 one-way, €108 return flight. Very attractive fares and time schedule. It's even 109 euros for a same day return! I hope the Fokker 50 is just an interim-solution to facilitate a quick start-up process and lower the start-up costs. Let's hope for an ATR inste...

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

Well, today Brussels Airport welcomed its first flight from Tallinn operated by AirBaltic using Airbus A220-300, excuse me Bombardier CSeries CS300, 3 flights per week. Nothing compared to the 9 flights per week of Nordica / LOT. Capacity-wise, airBaltic adds 870 seats a week (based on 145 seats pe...

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

What two AC-routes are you talking about?

Toronto is served by Brussels Airlines
Montréal is served by Air Canada and Air Transat

At least, this is what I can see in Amadeus GDS :)

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

And how much SN has to pay for this ? Doesn't make sense to keep wet leasing planes instead of just getting more planes. Unless they want SN to fail, I suppose. It's not just high season, one of the CSA planes is all year.. How about SN needed capacity "right now" with CSA and Eurowings giving them...

I seem to recall it’s in LJU for a C-check?
And if I remember it correctly, it won’t return sporting the Tintin colour scheme, but it will return in SN colours.
Until 2019 says the Brussels Airlines website... unless it's to be read as until the beginning of 2019 😉
