well it does make a lot of sense, doesn't it? -) SN pulls a plane off this route for use on other more profitable routes (e.g. charters during the summer months). -) The daily capacity on the BRU-BCN route is reduced, so the loadfactor and thus ultimately also the average ticket price can go up agai...

SN to stop serving BCN on its own metal

In order to optimize our capacity in Europe, SN Brussels Airlines is planning a few alterations to its network. A first step in this direction has been taken by reviewing the operations to and from Barcelona. As from the summer season (starting on 27th March), SN Brussels Airlines will continue to o...

If you look closely you'll see ALL flights in that timetable have the DISC 2X/3 mark.

It simply indicates the HOURS printed in this timetable are no longer valid beyond the date mentioned, since we go back to daylight saving time on the 27th of March.

I wonder what will happen to TAP code share flights SN has out of BRU? Destinations which spring to mind are: GOT, THF, BHX, HAM, PRG, SXB. Will TAP give them up because all of the destinations are served by LH too and are included in the agreement between LH and TAP? We all know how dearly LH would...

What FR does on their PIK-CRL route is quite frankly almost irrelevant for the SN's GLA-BRU route. SN is aiming at 2 kinds of passengers: -) high yield O/D pax, going on daytrips from the Glasgow area to downtown Brussels for business meetings, the EU institutions etc. NO way these pax will want to ...

You may argue that SN Brussels Airlines is indeed just plain old Sabena in disguise, but I know of quite a lot of members on this forum who will take a shot at you for that, so yes, for SN Brussels Airlines (which is now the official holder of the ex-Sabena IATA abreviation) GLASGOW is a brandnew de...

Well, one of the new European destinations for next summer already leaked out on the web anyway, so it isn't a secret to give it here once more: As from the end of March, SN is going to open a brandnew service to GLASGOW, operated with BAe146. These SN operated flights will also bear a BA flight num...

Well, Sentike, I don't know, but I sure would not have taken the risk to rebook on WizzAir. After all, your bill is growing ever steadily and still you are stuck with a very unreliable ticket on a LCC. At risk of being called a PR man of SN too, I just want to point out SN is offering tickets to vic...

You just don't have a clue, have you?

ONE important remark here: The strike is NOT about being able to take 4 consecutive weeks of holiday leave as has been wrongly and intentionally spread in the media by the SN management. The stike is about being able to take all leave (a total of 4 weeks) in consecutive ways , and NOT like the manag...

Waldova, can you please shut up, because you are making a fool of yourself! First of all: pilots at SABENA were not paid rediculously high salaries as you claim, they were paid avarage wages, similar to those used at most European carriers back then. At the regional carrier of SABENA (i.e. DAT) wage...

Don't know where the name Belgium Blue comes from, but I guess Blue because Blue is the house colour of SN, which will take control of VEX.

Anyway, as said, only a strong rumour (launched by R. Branson himself earlier this year when asked about the merger)
