Re: Low cost airlines all scaling back at BRU

That didn't work (fast enough) and now LH took over SN. Maybe they (FR) started the maneuver too late. The result is that FR is now partially pulling out of BRU. I really do not believe Ryanair were aiming at Brussels Airlines in the recent Brussels wars. Ryanair engaged in a war with Vueling and E...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

as an extra? because they're already using their A320 on the route Some of Aer Lingus's Dublin - Gatwick rotations will use a leased Cityjet SSJ instead of one of their own A320's. In particular, the following rotation will definitely be using the SSJ: Dublin - Gatwick Gatwick - Knock Knock - Gatwi...

Re: BRU Summer 2017: news, new routes, airlines

by about the equivalent of half a plane if I understand it correctly.
One change I know of is that they have switched the daily evening Dublin rotation from a Dublin based aircraft to a Brussels based aircraft.
