Whow, I must say that looks stunning! :) However, that is never going to happen because the merger between SN and VEX will be in fact a take over by the first (SN) of the second (VEX) after which the name Virgin Express will slowly be replaced by another name: Belgium Blue has been rumoured to be a ...

Will the new site be online again then, blackhawk?

I must say the comments and the preview we got in'skytalk', the company magazine, have made me very curious.

indeed, however it is not 100% as it was supposed to be... I have seen official drawings for a repaint of the MD-11's SN leased from Citybird and it showed the number 2 engine would have been painted blue as well and the SN logo would continue on it... Sad none of the MD-11s made it in the new colou...

I think we can all easily see why SN isn't too keen to merge with VEX under the present conditions... When SN merges with VEX and buys out Branson in 2005, it means the merged company (SN Airholding) would only have 65,6 million euro left, of which roughly 19,7 (30%) would belong to the ex VEX share...

I have a small question. Seems SN is again sending planes to AMS to get repainted in the new colours. OO-DJQ is now overthere getting rid of that ugly looking blue belly finally and OO-MJE is already back as the first BAe146 which got repainted. Does any of you know when we will see the first A330-3...

For the moment, SN is not thinking of expanding their Long Haul fleet. In fact, it looks as if the A330-300 will stay for a long time to come. The Airline has just launched a project to fully redecorate the interior of their wide body planes and even give them names!!!!! A few months back, there was...

Well I must say this is very good news for the company, however for the employees of SN this holiday period and the extra work it brings might be more then a stretch of their goodwill too far... In their latest euphoric press release SN arrogantly claims they have foreseen extra personnel in order t...

indeed Avro, net income is depending on your matrimonial status, and I am thus in favour of using gross salary in discussions too! Anyway, Dolfke gave you the figure of aroud 1680 euro net to give you an idea what a new-entry airline pilot an SN will earn... Fuji-Monster came up with a somewhat high...

Ok, I've registered specially for this occasion and I do not intend to get tangled up in this discussion, but as a SNBA pilot I feel I just had to jump in here. Doflke, can you please stop this discussion right away? What were you thinking? This discussion has achieved exactly the opposit of what yo...
