With Air Italy, AtlasGlobal etc going bust, many A330 will go back to lessor.
maybe there are some opportunities for SN to expand a little at good conditions…
Don't think they'll do that with their reboot plan

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

With the demise of Aigle Azur which had many flights to Algeria and the small over-capacity at SN due to TCs grounding, perhaps SN could consider flying in the week-ends to Algiers (and other Algerian cities). Just a thought... Probably Tuifly belgium will take over those routes from different citi...

Re: [Discussion] no direct flights anymore between Brussels and Miami

I do not think BRU is in extraordinary health at the moment. Losing YYZ (I know AC will then replace), lose MIA or lose PVG ... is not trivial ... and no new acquisition particular ... bof bof bof !

As I'm just an aviation lover and not someone that's 'in the business', I hope for next summer season we will see more new routes than 2019... I've been reading this forum for a long time and we are in talks with some companies/destinations for years already. Singapore? Sao Paulo? New York evening f...

Re: Brussels Airport monthly traffic figures

Was looking forward for the BRUtrends.
Shame they don't know the location of London on their map.
Also Zurich and Geneva are switched.
Elsewhere I saw some minor mistakes.
If you wait 7 months for a report about the previous year, at least make sure there are no mistakes. Haha

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

I think livery is more fancy than the one they had.
I must say I never really liked the B-dotted logo.
That one can still change in my opinion hehe.
But let's focus on the important things first, being profitable
