Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

I'm not sure al the A330 have the same capabilities for example SFO,M,N did not have this capability! For sure! But on March 14th the flight was performed by N814NW, an aircraft delivered in 2007... https://www.flightradar24.com/data/flights/dl79#1fcce447 https://www.airfleets.net/ficheapp/plane-a3...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Let me be the Devil's advocate...

Please stick to A330-300's even if they're second hand until the fleet is at least 20 aircraft, then start thinking about a second type.

Maye Boeing would have been better off if they designed the 737NG replacement from zero, but they didn't and now it's up to them to resolve these issues.
I gues the MAX series will be the last 737...

Look at Air France-KLM decided to reduce different (low-cost) brand names and harmonize everything, it is just cheaper to have one brand. AF-KLM came to the senses that Joon/HOP! c...
