Well, aside from the LH A330's there were leased, there are quite some A330's now available coming from defunct companies... some even quite new

One can hope :)

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Brussels Airlines COO (Director of Operations) Edi Wolfensberger said at the press conference this morning that SN has and will have only 8 A330s. The CEO Peter Gerber did indeed say that SN would no longer fly for Eurowings after the end of May, but he didn't say what would happen to the A330s tha...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Ok, I am going to start this question by saying that I don't know a lot of the operations of an airline. I only have a vast knowledge of the technical aspect (i.e. avionics ) That said; I know that Brussels Airlines is not getting any new aircraft. But in the near future; I see that a lot of airline...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2021

Ok, time for a "stupid question". From what I have heard is that Austrian is not doing so well. As a "partner airline" to LH and SN, why do they not restructure certain routes? E.g. : SN is a player in Africa and the idea is, to the public at least, to let SN grow in Africa. Then...

Hello there,

Is there any news on OO-SFH being repainted? ( and maybe OO-SFB ? )

I still find the livery on SFH... disgusting...

Re: South African Airways in "Business Rescue" as from 05 Dec 2019

South Africa’s new national airline could launch as early as January 2021. The government is working with private sector investors for a restructured South African Airways, and has received “more than 10 unsolicited offers” to partner with the airline. Potential integrations of SAA could include su...

Re: Impact of the coronavirus crisis on aviation

The above charge is not in line with the policy that Brussels Airlines announces for rebookings: You are right when it comes to rebooking... there are no extra charges, and only the difference in fares has to be paid... However, it seems to be that fares are different when you are rebooking or when...

Re: Impact of the coronavirus crisis on aviation

We see most airlines storing for undefined periods their A380’s. Or even withdrawing them from service. Presumingly because they are too big / costly for the low current passenger demand. Anybody knows what happens with most 748 PAX fleet ? FR24 shows some activity of the LH fleet, what is so diffe...

Seen today’s results chances of Flanker eating their hat are pretty slim.

Re: Boeing 747-8 news

It is also very clear that the world does not need big giant planes anymore. ( If a redesign is needed, it should be done on the 757-200 IMO ) Is it? Maybe for passengers there's currently (and in the next few years) no need for a 747 or A380, but what after those years? The aircraft used in 5-10 y...

Re: Boeing 747-8 news

With the news and confirmation that Boeing will stop the production of the B747, I have a question about it. The current one, B747-8, has of course a bit bigger engines than his former sisters, but why, and maybe this is a stupid question, why not replacing those 4 smaller engines by the fuel effic...
