If some one will place a picture of this aircraft on Luchtzak, than could Bart place this picture in the directory of " Pictures of the city parade 2003 in Ghent" :)

Under what very restrictive conditions?

14-day advance booking?
Saturday night stay?
Non-refundable for any reason?
Non-flexible?

Not really a businessman ticket...

Ok, my dear fellow spotters... Do me a favour...

From the moment that this plane comes to BRU, please take your sunglasses with you!!! Man, these colours are awful (but original, I must say).

Poor parents... December will be very expensive for them, certainly when little girls want a barbie-plane like that for sinterklaas or christmas... ;-)

Everybody talked about the colour of the a/c in the slide

But here is some background info on the company...
The new company was formed by expanding Odette Airways, which has operated flights from Zurich to the Balkans for the past two years. Helvetic Airways said it will also continue to carry on with operations under the Odette banner.
Odette Airways started with a MD-83 HB-INV bought from Crossair (It seems they did not spend much on the paint job!)
Does this mean you will never see that pink aircraft?
Helvetic officials say the new airline is 'no frills' and 'affordable,' but not 'cheap' - apparently seeking to carve out a middle ground between the major airlines and Europe's lowest fare airlines. Helvetic will operate 100-seat Fokker 100 aircraft taken over from American Airlines under a lend-lease agreement.

The swiss Travelinside.ch has info as where the Fokker 100 come from: Aus für Odette/Germania
