Re: Diversions from around the globe (medical, technical, ...) 2021

SN515 to IAD has been diverted to JFK where it landed at 4:50 pm UTC. Took off at 6:10pm UTC.

Anyone knows why?

Does someone remember on what day these were suspended?
March 2020
Right, André; I went back to the 9th page on the 2020 thread: on March 17,2020, SN issued a press release informing all SN flights were suspended as of March 21....untill April 17 (!).

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2021

SN seems to have some difficulty sorting out their flight numbers for the Afi flights.
For example the BRU-Banjul-Dakar-BRU triangular rotation uses 217 or 221 or 317. Any sense to that?

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

To me there are 3 possibilities. Third possibility: Network department and fleet department messed up and didn't realised yet that there is too much flight for the number or aircraft available and then flight would be cancelled. So, the flights planners didn't know how many aircraft they could use?...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

I'm wondering if Brussels Airlines could take over a A330 from the Eurowing ops for the summer? When you look at the summer time table, it looks like this: Monday 8 A330 Dakar/Banjul Abidjan/Cotonou Accra/Lomé Douala/Yaoundé Entebbe/Kigali Kinshasa New York Washington Tuesday 9 A330 Dakar/Banjul Ab...

Eurowings Discover (the new name of Lufthansa's Ocean project) to begin operating flights from Frankfurt to Barcelona and Rome on behalf of Air Dolomiti, beginning 01 April 2020 with A330-200s. Did you get it? Don't let April Fool's day fool you, André. Not last year, not this year, not next year!

I'm wondering if the crew that will bring back OO-SFG from AMM this thursday (?) is
the same that is now flying OO-SFE on its way to AMM (left BRU at 10:31).

Cheers, Alain.
Would be logical; maybe with a third pilot for possible delays.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2021

Yes, the flight to Freetown last week was a full-cargo flight, carrying medical equipment from "Medecin sans frontière" What I meant is "I assume it's only belly cargo". I don't think SN has any convertible A330. it only depends on if they like to take a risk on damaging the sea...
