indeed, total number of flights will be 9, so although not explicitly mentioned, it will most certainly mean SN will stop some of its 6 weekly TLV flights with LY upgrading the 737 to a 757/767 on those days...

Now, let's wait for the announcement of the daily DKR service...... on A319.

Yes, Sabena used to have a code share deal with El Al too and it is known SN Brussels Ailines has been willing to code share with them again ever since they've restarted their TLV operations. Back in the Sabena days, both carriers flew a daily rotation (SN sometimes even with a Sobelair 767) and des...

DannyVDB- SN has been adding extra flights for the EU parliament for a long time (even in the Sabena days), so it is not like they are a new initiative like you seem to have understood from SN26567's comment. It is just that in the past, they sold individual tickets to the EP and added capacity to t...

The loadfactor for March 2005 is again higher than for the same period in 2004, so the positive trend of the first 2 months of this year seems to be continued, although the LF for March is slightly lower than in February... I guess that has luch to do with the extremely early Easter Period this year...

TLN is a very cheap airport to fly to (in fact it's an old French Naval Air Base recently opened up to international flights) and the amount of Belgian tourists at the French Riviera has always been enormous, so as Jet Only (and SN as the operating carrier) found out last year, TLN is an ideal low f...

Last year, Jet only had SN fly this route and had included a clause in the contract forbidding SN to operat...
