Yes,these flights were a great initiative. I was on SN1005 and the planes were really full. But, as far as I'm correct, they were able to offer it for such low prices as personnel wasn't paid that day. The reason why it never was organised again during 'Openbedrijvendag'.

Will the blacklisting delay the start?

Transporteurs aériens de la République démocratique du Congo
(37) Tous les transporteurs aériens certifiés en République démocratique du Congo font l’objet d’une interdiction d’exploitation dans l’Union européenne et figurent à l’annexe A. Il existe des informations avérées attestant que les autorités compétentes de la République démocratique du Congo ont délivré un certificat de transporteur aérien au transporteur aérien Korongo Airlines le 7 janvier 2011.
(38) La Commission a entamé des discussions avec les autorités compétentes de la République démocratique du Congo afin d’obtenir des éclaircissements sur la situation de ce transporteur aérien et sur les conditions de sa surveillance. Les autorités compétentes de la République démocratique du Congo n’ont fourni aucune réponse.
(39) Dans la mesure où il n’est pas établi de changement dans la capacité des autorités compétentes de la République démocratique du Congo d’assurer la surveillance des transporteurs aériens titulaires d’une licence dans cet État conformément aux normes de sécurité applicables, il est estimé, sur la base des critères communs, que Korongo Airlines doit être ajouté à l’annexe A.

So what? Even if Korongo is blacklisted in the EU, that does not prevent it from flying in the D R Congo or elsewhere in Africa.

Brussels Airlines is taking care of things like maintenance and crew training,... to prevent them to become blacklisted. Not really because of operational problems, but for the image of the airline.

Having this reported in the news is definitely a PR issue, even as this could be part of a normal process, however the diplomatic language says what it says: no new info received from the RDC.

As far as Star Alliance and other partners of SN are concerned, don't count on them advertising or even using Korongo if they stay on the list, there is just too much credibility at stake for a very local opportunity.

This could also be the nail in the coffin some might be secretly hoping for.
