My point, exactly. No other mention of SN in the whole presentation.
The page of the presentation above is;
Longhaul of EW today (so BRU is in a different colour, as today SN is a separate part of EW)

and it litterally says it will be realigned and not integrated in EW

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

What if Eurowings for instance takes over the flights to and from HAM, TXL,... as Eurowings has a strong German base? What if Eurowings takes over the flights to Heraklion, Marsa Alam, or other ex-TC-destinations, as those are clearly point-to-point? SN can still codeshare on these flights, but it ...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Finally some common sense. I think so too The construction of LongHaul Brussels inside Star Alliance and integrated in Eurowings was way too complex to be workable. And such a structure can't be lean and efficient. I think an efficient hybrid carrier in Brussels Airport can do well, plus it mixes t...

Re: Estonian Air bankrupt - Replaced by Nordica

At least, airBaltic and LOT can jump in and fill the voids. I guess we'll see more airBaltic indeed, they're not too bad LOT however pushes you each time through Warsaw, which is not that great. The service is rather bad. Usual alternative becomes Lufthansa, which via Frankfurt is even less appeali...

Re: Estonian Air bankrupt - Replaced by Nordica

Nordica is dead. LOT decided to close all Nordica routes as from July 1st. Only Tallinn-Brussels/Stockholm/Warsaw will remain, operated by LOT. As the same time, Nordica signed a contract where their planes will keep flying for LOT. This is a very sad, sad day A big loss for Tallinn https://www.err....

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Amazing stuff going on here: "SN has become EW". We call it "massahysterie". Just one proof of the contrary: the Bruegel aircraft (OO-SNE). That A320 can't go to the paint shop in Malta or Hamburg next week to get Eurowings colours. It's part of a five year commercial contract, signed between Chris...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Exactly! A little nuance, my job pays...that's true but I also pay some travel. In fact with EW we enter a category that I call "subcategory" with zero service when there is a problem I thought for a second I was the Nordic 'rich bitch' here. But nonetheless. Yes, that's how this works. EW, I am no...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

BRU-TLL is operated by LO/Nordica and not by SN so that doesn't change a lot for you on that route, If you're miles and more you still get miles etc on EW/SN flights for SK Gold no idea to be honest as Eurobonus has it's own benefits but it's logical they give more benefits to Miles&More and SN/EW'...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Which suddenly brings me to a question affecting me;
Later this year I need to get to CPH and back. If I book SN, and in the mean time it all turns EW, will the Star Alliance Frequent flyer benefits still be applied?

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

for the passenger it doesn't change a lot I agree and I disagree The painting or name outside of the plane, though boring, doesn't make or break it. It'll do the job just as well There's some brand awareness and marketing blabla, but in the end it's not that important Though, where I disagree is th...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Of course ... think the future for Brussels will be clear .. European flights will go under the EW brand now... But then what's the point of having special liveries like Brueghel, and then have some boring EW livery at the same time? At least the Star Alliance livery makes sense. It really starts t...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

I am rather happy they're still investing in this livery, though I like other better. It also reassures me SN will be around a bit longer (they're a very decent option out of Brussels, and a part of a large alliance). I do wonder what will happen with this OO-SNN It better not be a EW one. I would g...

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..
