I saw that 'City of Prague' (OK-NEP) is flying for SN to TLS
Is this plane permanently going to fly for SN? I would find that a bit upsetting, Brussels Airlines with its 'Belgian icon' planes, suddenly flying around with advertisement for another city..

SNI and SNJ are also still in KUN and OSR respectively (SNJ already since December?)

SNJ might be getting a new "Belgian icon" livery!

It should be SNE...
SNA is Trident, SNB Rackham, SNC Magritte, SND Aerosmurf and SNF Amare...

I was at Brussels on Sunday, was still outside H41, not flying for now 2 weeks and half.

Lessor issue perhaps ?

One assumption, already read on this forum, could be visibility : most of their A330 are flying and are on the airfields essentially at night, at the opposite of the A319/A320 family.

Do you have a good source? Or is this just a wild guess on your side? SNJ was painted in SN livery just one year ago.

From what I've heard, it's going to be either SNG or SNE.

SNJ being in OSR (where other special liveries were applied), it was just a guess.

"Finally, Foerster confirmed that the airline will unveil another special livery aircraft in May 2019."

So ?

I don't remember which special livery it was, but there's one which has been made at EMA, right ?
TCV and TCH liveries have been made there as well.

Now you guys can say whatever you want, but I didn't expect another special livery with the integration into the eurowings group... Great news :o
BUT a bit strange, no?

Which aircrafts will be retrofitted after the arrival of oo-sfd this week? Is there an overview?
