It's sistership will become SSQ, BTW.

Strange we can't find SNA (and SNB) back yet, probably a matter of days.
Tolipanebas, what is your definition of 'soon'. :D Can't wait to see these birds in Brussels...

This A319 is now also mentionned on Skyliner: "Airbus A319-112, c/n 4275, reg OO-, Brussels Airlines, N-reg canx 13jan11 prior delivery ex MIA in full cs, ex N275MX."
http://www.skyliner-aviation.de/regdb.main?LC=nav4

This is just a guess, but I would think this A319 would come late January, early February, around the time the first A320 would come. Maybe someone with more accurate information?

Can someone recap what SN's current fleet is and what it's going to be with known and confirmed information in 2011?

Non-stop?

I would think an A319 can without pax or cargo.

Read my post from earlier today. According to Skyliner: delivery OO-SSR 21-22 January MIA-KEF-BRU.
So I assume he flew trough KEF.

So, this will be the first SN-aircraft to have the 'Recaro'-seats then.

No the SFV has Recaro seats I think. Do they get the same? The SFV and the rest of the fleet?

yeah and boeing also has recaro :roll: but not the model that is going to be in the 319's :) those are lightweights.

SSR is the first model that will get the NEW MODEL recaro seats ;)

Lufthansa's EVP Corporate Fleet is Nico Buchholz and he is based in Frankfurt. Herr Buchholz is a very important man in the airline business; he and his team buy planes for Lufthansa, Swiss, Brussels, Austrian and BMI. So he is on many OEM speed dial lists. He and his team make fleet decisions that reverberate and often act as guidance for other airlines. We got to spend some 20 minutes with him talking about NEO, CSeries, GTF and LEAP-X.
