Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

No more Moscow flights for SN? Has this been announced? Was announced on this forum 3 weeks ago: They will also stop operating Moscow flights from 18.11 till 20.12 and from 11.01 till 24.02. According to one of SVO employees their flights are usually loaded with 80-90 passengers. After moving to SV...

States have sovereignty over their territory and the airspace above it. They could impose such rules, probably for safety or environmental reasons
They certainly have that prerogative, but the russian example clearly shows that there are often other, less noble, reasons involved.

It is probably the acceptance flight by the lessor/owner, it covers a complete flight as well as some emergency procedures. SFW will be parted out, this was very likely its very last flight. Ever.
What's the point of doing an acceptance flight for a plane bound to be parted out?

Is it correct that OO-SFW (A333) is leaving the fleet today? It took off coming straight out of the hangar. Then this would be it's last flight:https://www.flightradar24.com/BEL9955/22cd60e9

EDIT: arrived at St. Athan, UK
Maybe not for scrapping as there was a 10 minutes part at 41000 ft.

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

It's all very well to say the B787 and/or the A321 would be better fits for SN. However, I would like to see their comparative rent and operation costs with those of the current A330s. You have to invest in the future. It costs, for sure. But it costs also if your planes are all the time on the gro...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Regarding the booking system: now that SN is not going to integrate in EW, it is going to the same booking engine as OS, LX, LH. So yes, it will be possible in the future to also book SN flights on the website of LH, LX, OS. Rome wasn't built on one day either, just be patient. And to all of you wh...

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

Is it possible to get an AOC purely based on wet-leasing? There's not much "O" in AOC then. I cannot see the point. The O stands for "operations", not for "ownership" An air operator's certificate (AOC) is the approval granted by a national aviation authority (NAA) to an aircraft operator to allow ...
