Adria Airways (Slovenia) plans to return to profitability in 2019 following a difficult year. Adria will grow its ACMI business with plans to wet-lease additional aircraft to Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, Luxair and Lufthansa in summer 2019. It will also continue growing its operations outside of Ljubljana.

1. Lufthansa Group will start moving its widebodies between its five airlines according to their needs. And it started with Eurpwings and Brussels Airlines:

Adria would use the CRJs for ACMI, the Sukhois would be for its own lines

at least that is how I understand this sentence from https://www.exyuaviation.com/2018/11/ad ... ukhoi.html "Commenting on the order, Adria's CEO said, “It is our pleasure to partner with Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company. They will completely support Adria's development strategy. During the past two years we have been analysing the SSJ100 and came to the conclusion that all the technical and operational characteristics of this aircraft would suit our strategic goals the best”. Mr Kowarsch added that the SSJ100 would additionally free up Adria's Bombardier and Airbus fleet for ACMI contracts"

Cranfield doesn't have a 3-letter code, perhaps that's why the system got confused.
Indeed, she left BHX soon after landing there then went for Cranfield University field. On the way OO-DWF overflew the old RAE ar Bedford, the birth place of the BAe / Avro.

OO-DWF is parked in front of our University its B737 awaiting its fate.
OO-DWF is now EP-FQZ, now flying for Qeshm Air Iran:

On the unofficial LH Group fleet table, OO-SSC (the only Star Alliance livery in SN's fleet) is indicated as stored. Is it leaving the fleet as hinted some time ago?

I thought Airbus planned to take over the plane to measure the state of wear of the structure and fuselage after 26 years service?

I heard the same thing some time ago.
However, I wouldn't consider it improbable or even impossible for them to perform that analysis on site in Bangor.

Bangor is only a technical stop. The end destination is ... Crestview, Florida ;)

Both situations are very different. SFM has provided enormous services and has been a major element in SN's survival in Africa. The SSJs were more like the old DAT for regional flights. Seeing SN aircraft on the ground is always painful. We would like to have pictures of new destinations, especially long-haul destinations and the extension of the passenger supply network at European level. Today, it is a wish that depends only on LH and the chances are minimal...

Returning from its lease to Brussels Airlines, Cityjet SSJ100 EI-FWF pays its first and possibly last visit to Dublin. (Picture Ken Meegan on Twitter)
