Planning of petition "retro livery"

Post by DreamBig » 30 Jan 2019, 20:00

ello all,

I have been thinking about this idea for quite a long time, but before I start I would like to know whether there is a base that is big enough to realize something. As Brussels Airlines has painted the OO-SNB in the tintin livery and is working on a Red Devils and Magritte livery, I thought: why woudln't they paint one of their planes into the old Sabena livery (yes yes, I know they aren't quite the same).

That is why I would like to start a petition to ask SN to paint one of their planes in the good, old Sabena livery. I was only 5 years old when Sabena went bankrupt and I had family working there. If you hear them talk, it was a great time. Wouldn't it be great then for those persons to see a plane one more time in this good old livery? I really would like to see this once in my life!

I personnaly think that SN won't do this by themselve, because they really want to develop as a Belgian airline without taking the history into account (develop in the future, don't look back to the history), so perhaps if there are enough people who want so, they get convinced to do so.

So now my question: if I would start a petition, would you sign it and/or try to convince your friends, family etc. to singn this petition.

This sounds like a good idea. Brussels Airlines itself doesn't have a long history, thus very few "retro" liveries. But it would nevertheless be nice to see an S-tail again in the skies.

As for a Sabena livery, Brussels Airlines does not consider itself as the successor of Sabena, thus I doubt that the company would agree to sport a Sabena retro livery. But it doesn't cost anything to give it a try...

They run far away from Sabena and now it's Eurowings...
I suspect a merged livery which will set up thé new name or something like that...
Forget Sabena :/ Will never happen...
Best thing was the margritte Bird i guess...
But I Will sign for sure ;)
