It looks like that OO-SFN is currently making some test flight over the Gent area. Yesterday it came back from Accra this last night with no specific delay.

Not a fleet renewal, but a new flight control computer https://www.aviation24.be/airlines/brussel ... fu-oo-sfn/

The decision has been taken.
Since the question as to where those new planes will go will come literally 1 second later, allow the company some time to coordinate and firm everything up both internally as well as externally.
Don't worry, you won't be disappointed.
A company which was on track for over 100 million euro net profit without the attacks and still managed to post 20 million euro profit despite them, has shown to be fit for investment and expansion to its shareholder. ;)

No more fleet expansion after 2017.

So, this is virtually the end of Brussels Airlines than... If they won't add additional planes to the fleet the growth will stop and no additional destinations will be possible due to the lack of planes. Seems like really terrible news. Was this the way of saying "Brussels Airlines is over and done", we'll jump into the Eurowings boat instead?

You can have both, a 1 on 1 replacement with the same type.

True, but Tolipanebas also said something about "it shows fit for expansion"...

If you replace the few -200's with new(er) -300's or -900's and even redesign the interior you can have an expansion with the same amount of planes. The same applies to the A32S, you can (eventually) replace the 319 by a 320 or 321 and the 320 with a 321 so technically you can get expansion without getting more planes. Just like replacing the Avro's with the A32S.

Though I must admit, the statement about "no fleet expansion after 2017" is very worrying and shows a bleek future for SN as SN. If true, it's almost like saying it's over and out for SN (as SN, maybe not as future EW).

Less investment in fleet expansion and more in digital, service and efficiency. But correction: there is still the aim to increase the long haul fleet by one aircraft per year. Replacement of 7 older aircraft : type not yet decided , discussion ongoing.
