It is not Ryanair insisting on Passports but rather the security / airport / government authorities. I'm not sure exactly which authorities, but I know Ryanair are pushing them to allow ID cards be used with web check-in.

Didn't VLM fly from Antwerp to Geneva before? Pity that it didn't continue. Moreover, some competition on Brussels/Belgium to Zurich would be very welcome indeed!

Colours are bit too pale for my liking. Not the worst livery though...
