Within a few years JetBlue might start flying to Brussels (Article in Dutch).

Spare me. I already shiver at the idea of doing an 8 hour transatlantic flight in a single aisle aircraft

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

I am hoping it's a waffle plane. Would be amazing. Or a plane full of fries :D Others I'd really like: - A chocolate plane - Gaston Lagaffe / Guust Flater - Spirou et Fantasio / Robbedoes ( or just a plane with all the Dupuis characters ) A plane showing our beers would also be nice, but I think it'...

I saw that 'City of Prague' (OK-NEP) is flying for SN to TLS
Is this plane permanently going to fly for SN? I would find that a bit upsetting, Brussels Airlines with its 'Belgian icon' planes, suddenly flying around with advertisement for another city..
It's a wet lease

Not surprisingly, some of those birds are 30 years old !
The A319's are between 23 and 7 years old, the CRJ's of LH Cityline are between 13 and 2 years old…..
I'm sorry, typo, of course I meant 20 and not 30 ;) Altough there are some A320's that are almost 30 years tough :shock:

Eurowings applies for a blanket statement of authorisation to display the two-letter LX designator code of SWISS on Eurowings flights between the EU and the US. Why?
Perhaps the Geneva-NY route?

Re: Lufthansa in 2019

Lufthansa plans to buy a triple-digit number of either B737 MAX (really?) or A320neo to replace its early A319s and CRJs. A decision is due in 2020. Meanwhile, the airline received its third B777F (D-ALFG, msn 66090) Not surprisingly, some of those birds are 30 years old ! about the 737Max: if they...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Brussels Airlines, a.k.a. Eurowings will get a shitload of used A330s it seems. Not necessarily a problem tough. I didn't mean it as a problem, the A330 can offer a very comfortable ride and I agree that SN doesn't have +11hrs destinations for now. Nor could they with this fleet if they wanted to.....

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Maybe I was a bit to quick with my reaction yesterday. OS of course is in much bigger need of new equipment since their 767/777 are way older then SN's incoming A330-fleet, besides these fairly young birds are quite sufficient for SN ops... And LH wanting to get rid of thirsty A340's seems logical ...
