If the OO-SFB isn't active at the moment, why can't it stay in BRU for when the one of the older is AOG untill it goes to DUS?
Isn't she in the paint shop getting the EW livery?

And where do the AB A340-s coming from? YES ;) ;)
The A340's aren't owned by Finnair (at least not anymore), they are owned by Airbus. If I remember correct the sale of the A340's had a buy back clause which obligated Airbus to take back the birds when the deliveries of the A350 started. ;)

TBA (wikipedia)
IATA codes are 2 digit codes, ICAO is 3 (ABB).

I guess TBA stands for "to be announced", according to the IATA site they aren't a member (yet).

Re: TUI fly Belgium in 2018

Anyone who knows the meaning of "LOE"? Seems to be out of place for TUIB to give such a strange registration?

Re: Niki suspends operations, restarts as LaudaMotion

Mr Lauda is probably very short of cash, Ryanair has to fund the start up costs of Laudamotion. The talks with others continue in case the EU would not approve the FR deal. Without FR and in the absence of any other deal Laudamotion will be history before the end of the year. Don't think his wealth...

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

To settle once and for all the issue of the Belgian flag represented on Air Belgium aircraft, could we consider that Air Belgium used the 1830 flag with the colours red, yellow and black in a horizontal layout with the red on top? It's only in 1831 that the colours became shown in a vertical layout...

Re: Niki suspends operations, restarts as LaudaMotion

Quite surprising also that they are going to build an Airbus fleet instead of switching to Boeing like it's future parent Ryanair has. The cost of this 75% investment in LaudaMotion (if approved by the EU) will be less than €50m although Ryanair will provide an additional €50m for year 1 start up an...

It would be nice to keep the WiFi: a new source of ancillary revenues!
One day or another they'll have to jump onto the wagon, more and more airlines are getting WiFi and cell service on board. Time for SN to join the club :)

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

(Heading on a being-banned-for-the-weekend course:) On the colours: the Belgian Constitution states in Article 193: "The Belgian Nation adopts red, yellow and black colours". Constitutional lawyers agree that the black-yellow-red flag has been wrong since 1831. It took Niky Terzakis and Chinese tou...

On the flag... I'm convinced it's on purpose because of the target market: China. Could be mentioned before, I don't know... 26 pages is a lot to reread... In China red and yellow stand for good fortune (Look at Hainan's colour scheme), black stands for water and is considered a neutral colour. and...

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

The aircraft wears the colour of Belgium, period. It is not a flag. Red Devils do not wear the colours in the "proper" order either. They shouldn't have made it to look like a flag than... They obviously made this livery to resemble a Belgium flag but they didn't respect the (I admit, maybe unwritt...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Not because the second A330 coming will be painted in Brussels Airlines Livery But that one is going to SN and not EW. And you always have to start slow when you know there's big attachment to the brand. So start with one plane and see how it goes, a few months later a second one, etc... At least t...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Sounds ridiculous, unless the EW livery are just decals. Otherwise it might be a first step into rebranding SN into EW, they can say in 10 months: hey, our plane was just painted, let not waste any money by repainting it, just slap a decal "operated by Brussels Airlines" on it and we're good to go.....

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

What about the livery? Will the EW one get an EW livery or will it get an SN livery? Or will it stay in the CX livery with temp decals until it returns to SN and gets a full paintjob?
