Hello,

OO-SFP and OO-SFJ currently operated by Eurowings will return on June 2 to BRU. I suppose to do a check before leaving for Africa / America !

Samuel,

Samuel,
They come back to BRU as the eurowings wetlease ends, but as already explained, they will not fly for Brussels airlines self (at least not for this summer)

This is even why Washington and New York as been reduced and Montreal have been cancelled as there is only 8 A330 operating for Brussels Airlines

Don't know if it has been posted yet but Peter Gerber, CEO of brussels airlines said yesterday in an interview to Lesoir that there were loonking forward to get rid of all A319 and A320, and to switch to à continental fleet of A320neo's if it's really the case, it would mean an order of around 35-40 brand new aircraft.

What has been told, is that :

"Pour grandir, se développer, être rentable, le mieux c’est de disposer d’avions récents et économiques.

Après avoir harmonisé notre flotte de longs courriers, il faut moderniser et harmoniser la flotte continentale, se débarrasser des A319 et des A 320. On regarde les A320 neo. Économiquement, environnementalement, ce sont de meilleurs avions.

Pour ça, Lufthansa a toujours été très claire, pour avoir de nouveaux et meilleurs avions, il faudra les mériter.

C’est vrai, il faudra les mériter et remplir certains critères de rentabilité mais il faudra aussi que les politiques aident un petit peu, que chacun contribue un peu. C’est bénéfique pour tout le monde puisqu’avec de meilleurs avions, moins chers, on fait plus d’argent…"

"It would mean an order of around 35-40 brand new aircraft."

First of all, Brussels Airlines is not profitable, second thing, Lufthansa will never order more than 10 A320neo aircraft for Brussels Airlines. The Belgian flag carrier has never got any 100% new aircraft on its own. You dream a bit too much I think.

Of course they would not order them all at once, did I said that?

But you agree that if all of them leave at some point, and if the fleet stay around the same size I guess u agree that Peter Gerber will not take them out of a magic hat don't you?

OO-SNA is back, did someone, by any chance, photograph the new livery? 😇

It is said to be a "refreshed" Trident livery. The Red Devils might fly with another airline (see viewtopic.php?p=408754#p408754), SN wants them back!

The trident logo of the Red Devils is replaced by the '1898'-logo, the official Red Devils fanclub.

Trident is scheduled to fly to Saint-Petersburg tomorrow. My best guess is that Brussels Airlines and the KBVB decided that OO-SNA will be flying the fans to/from the cities where the Red Devils will be playing their games.

I read an article which stated that it was a dedicated press flight. Can't immediately find the article though.

Samuel,
What is their future? Transfer back to LH or to 4Y maybe?
