Any plans to give OO-SFH a new livery? or is it going to fly on like that?
I hope so, not even the B logo

SFH will not (yet) have the new cabin, right?

Which one will be next, I mean for getting the new cabin?

Or does another one first need maintenance?

SFF?
The reason why it was for 3 months in AMM was for the cabin outfit and ( I hope ) a repaint

Re: BRU Summer 2020: news, new routes, airlines

I would have chosen 2x4x3 or 3x4x2. No doubt because of balance. The seating you propose would certainly be felt on the flight deck... I remember a lot of MD11's were in a 3-4-2 configuration... It had something to do with an uneven distribution when evacuating a plane. Cant remember what exactly, ...

OO-SFC now on its way to Amman as SN9907 (maintenance/cabin retrofit?).
Does that also mean that OO-SFH is finally ready ?

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

. I don't understand the behavior of LH in this. LH could have much more benefits from it if they would invest more in SN. Instead of replacing 7 old A330 by other old A330 they could have ordered for SN also the new A330NEO. It would give them even a bigger discount by Airbus. Not sure if the NEO ...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

The question I am asking myself is why were sn brussels airlines and brussels airlines for so many years reliable airlines and why is SN long haul the new Air Afrique aka Air Peut-Etre (Air Perhaps). Correct me if I am wrong, but long haul worked well under BG with older aircraft. Why is it becomin...

Airbus obtains EASA approval to raise the maximum passenger number on the A350-1000 from 440 to 480.

OMG! Sardines?
I was afraid this might happen. Like be B777, it's perfectly feasible to put a 10 across in an A350 :(

I m not feeling well when people say that, under the Apartheid, SAA was a better airline.
I said they made more profit under the years of apartheid. Not that they where a better airline. Nuances.

Re: South African Airways: ongoing rumours about financial woes

Indeed. Not really rumours anymore. I have been following the situation for a while now ( I have SA roots ) and things are not looking good at all. If Ramaphosa decides to stop the bailouts ( which is currently set at about 1.90 bilion rand ~rougly 130 million dollars ) it's over. And from a pure fi...

Return of a ‘previously lost’ airline / destination also in the picture. Cannot disclose more for the time being, but from a high level and very reliable source. Guess we need to have a bit of patience. Yes, thank you. Just guesses for long haul : AA to/from PHL. SA to/from JNB (but unlikely becaus...

Anyone knows what OO-SFE is doing in Amman? Yesterday and today OO-SFE had several short flights (?). I thought it was only there for a cabin refit. Or are there also technical issues with the bird?

probably because SN doesn't have enough aircraft right now to deal with the summer madness, which is a good thing
